    Default Flashing / emptying / dumping (e)eproms, Amsterdam area

    I have an eprom burner, can help for free if anyone needs something.

    Receiving / shipping or on location is possible in the Netherlands, but can't do that for free.

    Hello Erwin,

    i have an Old IBM 5160.

    Recently it shows a defect.
    When i start it, i hear a coninously sound (no beep)

    By changing Chips from another of my 5160 s i found out:

    The Bios Chip 1501512 is faulty.

    Now my question:

    Do you have a chance to burn (may be an EPRON 27256) as replacement for that chip?

    Or another idea how i can get it working again?

    Thank you very much in advance


    Best regards



    Alfred

    So, chip U18 of the 11/08/82 dated BIOS.

    Because the 5160 was previously working, we can rule out a bent pin on the 1501512 ROM.

    And because another 5160 BIOS ROM set worked, the ROM support circuitry, and the sockets, are good.

    Try cleaning the pins on the 1501512 ROM. If that fails to rectify the situation, then the only fixes are:
    * Substitution with a good 1501512 ROM; or
    * Substitution with a suitably programmed 27C256 (or equivalent).

    The code to go into a 27C256 EPROM (or equivalent) is at [here]. The fact that the faulty ROM is 1501512, together with your "i have an Old IBM 5160", implies that you have the early ('64-256KB') version of the IBM 5160 motherboard. Therefore, per [here], whoever programs the EPROM needs to know not to use an NEC branded 27C256.
