8/24/2016: MediaWiki software and PHP version updated. Please let me know if you find any problems.. Also, extensive Template cleanup is in progress based on new things I have learned on another wiki project. I will update the Help files when I get it all done. --OS-9 Al

8/30/2016: Massive re-work is being done on the InfoBox Templates. Read that page to keep up with the plan for that, and adding better keyword tags (categories) to all the pages. --OS-9 Al (talk) 15:28, 31 August 2016 (CDT)

EPROM Programmer

I don't know how many versions were made, but mine runs off a single +5 volt supply. It does not use batteries to get the programming voltage, it uses a DC-to-DC voltage contverter to generate the +12V, +21V, or +25V programming voltage. By using a DC-to-DC converter, it allows it to work on all versions of the coco. This IS compatable with the CoCo3.

repair tip: I had my DC-to-DC converter go bad (I broke it, by overloading it, it was an accident), and I simply tested the 4 transistors and replaced the bad one(s). With the price of these small signal transistors, you're probably better off to just replace all of them.

I will try to get a picture of mine posted before too long. Someone contact me if I forget.
