Thread: Who knows something about the old NEC PC-6001A around here?

  1. #71


    FYI I have a 6001 with matching cassette in the orig box (the computer not the cassette)....I could be convinced to sell it if the price was right.

    For those of you on Facebook that want to exchange info, I have a group for Japanese computer fans...

    I just got a 6001 from Japan myself. All I seem to get out of it right now when connected to the TV is a white screen.

    I probed the cartridge slot on the side to see if I could figure out if any voltages are missing.

    +5V: 5.09V
    -5V: 0.75V
    -12V: 0V
    +12V: 0V

    I haven't had a chance to open it up yet but it sounds like I might also have a blown fuse on my power board. Maybe each rail is fused separately? I'll have to study the schematics.

    Mine had a bad diode in the power supply which led to a blown fuse. They have 4 large diodes in a full wave bridge I think on it. If you need the schematic I can post it. The power board is is separate from the main pcb and easy to get to with the cover off as I recall. Good luck!

    And keep in mind that if the PC-6001 uses 4116 DRAMs (most probably) and the power rails are faulty, the RAM could also be bad. These ICs are very sensible to failures of their three voltages.

    Btw: Check this page: NEC PC-6001 repair

    Of the six PC6001s I bought from Japan, 2 were good, 4 were bad. Need to get back to working on them. Seem to recall 1 had bad power supply... I have spare PS... and three had bad video.. prob RF modulator, 6847 or RAM.

    Has anyone replaced their entire bulky PS with a modern design?

    As the 6001 needs +12V,+5V and -12V it would be easy to replace it with an ATX PSU (picoPSU preferably). I've never repaired my 6001s; but my 6601 has a new ATX PSU and it uses the same voltages.
