Hi Guys,

I have an Atari 1040ST here that I need to connect power to (not with an Atari make power supply... that would be too easy!) and I need to find a map of where volts 12,5,3.3 & ground are applied to which pins on the circuitboard (1989 version). I'd appreciate any help as I've been searching for this information for an age, and the next step for this 1040 is the garbage heap if I can't get it working again... and that would be such a shame.

Cheers,
Andy

Here is a link, close to the bottom of the page:

Hope this helps! ST's are cool computers.

And if it doesn't work after all, don't throw it away, offer it up here and I bet you'll get shipping plus $2 or something. Better than tossing it. Parts, always parts! :)

Thanks for that Nathan. A good site and I've now bookmarked it. The picture they have there is for a 520ST which unfortunately is different to the 1040ST (I've got one of them too). Never mind, I'll keep on looking. Thanks again mate.

Cheers,
Andy
