Sitenotice: 11/29/2018: The wiki is back. It turns out, some anti-virus product on my web server had an issue with the latest version of PHP. My server techs have resolved this issue, and things should be working again. During the investigation, I did restore to a backup from September. There is a chance that any changes done since then were lost, but I do not recall any edits. --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.
