Hiya

I picked up Martin's RBION - any chance that anyone has a spare Whitestar CPU board - 520-5300-00? If not I'll pick one up from Phil.

Cheers!

Not many people with a spare Whitestar board I'm afraid - the original revisions especially, although the audio-chip-emulation revisions are also undersupplied. Rare as rocking-horse refuse, comparatively speaking.

If you can find anyone prepared to part with one you're absolutely looking at 400 minimum for a working one. Less than that and you should assume it has real problems.

Nice, thin traces going underneath chips and sockets, all directly below the batteries.

Trust me on this one - it's a really ****ty repair to have to do
