I thank you for your interest in my problem. In fact, if I do another RESET the problem returns. When I bought the drive, it was second-hand drive. The power PCB was broken due to the big screw of the o-ring transformer. I soldered the PCB but the problem is still there. I think that the Atmos is on...

Jasmin drive

Hello


I have a problem with the Jasmin drive.
At startup the oric, the disk rotates
While Oric has no time to initialize.
Like if there was a parasitic hardware interruption.

Is it too small capacitor?

Good evening.

I wanted to switch on my Oric, and nothing happens...(Argh) the Jasmin 5v Graetz rectifier died. I found a rectifier TV (max 3Amps)and it runs again (pfiu..)
Recording with the microphone boost option is a success, I recovered my old programs... :D

If the connector is well shaped and although polarized, whereas it provides continuous 9volts and more than 800mA, you can connect a psu of another device.
My oric is powered with a psu 9volts 2A.

Thank you for your advice Symoon I found a wave editor that works with the mono 44100Hz signal and I could see that the signal was too weak for Wavclean. With the amplifier function I tried to transfer a little Basic program from disk.SUCCESS! :D (with a single error). Maybe the disk is too old.. Th...
