Post install problems.
Please relax this should fun!
I really do test every single board that I ship. This doesn't mean I am perfect however.
I have shipped boards missing components, but they were tested and still produced output. I've shipped boards missing a capacitor, but since they are
for filtering they still tested ok. I also missed a resistor. I didn't notice it when I tested because it only affected certain levels of color. I've shipped a bad 7800
board because I didn't test it with a 2600 cartridge. (I test both 7800 and 2600 cartridges now.)
That being said, I've had the opportinity to re-work failed installation. Here's the advice I can give you so far.
- Check that you didn't damage any traces.
- Check that you didn't make any solder bridges. I use an 8x loup when I assemble the boards.
- Static electricity will kill your Atari's IC's.
You can always send me your non-working assembly to fix.
I'll fix it for a flat rate of $20.00 fee plus $15.00 for any IC on the Atari that needs to be replaced. You cover shipping.
If I've made a mistake on your board, I will refund for the cost of the board and fix your installation free of charge.
