Servicing a Telestrat ..

If you want to ask questions about how the machine works, peculiar details, the differences between models, here it is !
How to program the oric hardware (VIA, FDC, ...) is also welcome.

Servicing a Telestrat ..

Post by ibisum »

.. so, in my collection of Oric gear, I have an Oric-1, 8 Atmos', and a Telestrat. I'm going to unbox the Telestrat soon and try to get it functional again - last time I tried to boot it (a year ago) it yielded no happy result - powers up, but no boot into the ROM.

So has anyone recovered a dead Telestrat before, and if so got any pro-tips? I haven't found where I put the service manual yet, but I do believe there is one online - or am I mistaken completely?

Anyway, hope to get it started up again because I'd love to be using it.

Good luck!
BTW there seems to be an Oricutron bug of the I/O memory mirroring in the Telestrat.
