Re: VGA sync loss with Q68

Hi,

I connected a Q68 to a LG65UK6300PLB TV, (65" screen size) into the HDMI port with a VGA to HDMI converter.

I switched the aspect ratio to 16:9.

Works really well.

Re: VGA sync loss with Q68

Hi, I had a look at the service manual for the Sony KDL-26S5500, but there was no real information on the VGA output. Except for the ouput was 1360x768 @ 60 Mhz, which the Q68 should handle. I tried a Q68 on a Toshiba50L2436D, 50" TV, plugged directly into the VGA Connector, where some badly ta...

Re: VGA sync loss with Q68

Hi Bob, Do you have the TV model number. The Q68 manual says the VGA output is a standard VESA 1024x768 @ 60Hz. Maybe the Sony TV is not totally standard. Maybe you could try a VGA to HDMI converter, which I have attachef to 19" HDMI TV. I do have 65" LG TV with VGA input, I will test a W6...

I did try to fit my vDriveQL into the QL case, but it would need alot of changes to the QL PCB behind the Microdrives. So I do mot do it.

I may look into this again, as I do not like the vDriveQL in a Microdrive case.

Re: DIY QubIDE Parts list

Hi, I had a closer look at the photographs again, I would say there are problems withe soldered joints. I would give the under side of the PCB a good clean and get rid of all the flux, then examine each solder joint and reflow the solder joint as required. You also look at the QL expansion port to s...

Re: DIY QubIDE Parts list

Hi,

I think Martyn is correct, the resistor array is the wrong way around. Pin 1 on the resistor array is next to the Qubide eprom.

If you look closely on the PCB mask, Pin 1 is marked.
