Iiyama Pro Lite E485S FIX
It was a busy weekend, and I did not have lots of time for everytyhing I wanted to do.
But I was pretty pleased with the fact that I could find some time and all the tools needed to fix my Iiyama E485S LCD screen.
This was the problem, like more people I had this screen laying arround wich gave a Greenish screen when turn on and that isnt going away.
Only if you say to a Debug/Service menu to use "special" values it is maybe in the correct colors again. But once power lost, so is the green screen back.
N8VEM Single board computer
The N8VEM Single Board Computer (SBC) is a home brew Z80 small computer project. It is made in the style of vintage computers of the mid to late 1970's and early 1980's using a mix of classic and modern technologies.
It is intended to be my teaching in principles of electronic computer design. The N8VEM SBC and related peripherals would be ideal as a school project or could be used to teach basic computer hardware and software principles. i enjoyed already building it and as you can read, im writing bits of pieces about it already.
More information about it can be found here http://n8vem-sbc.pbworks.com
My version runs a bit of custom version of cp-m and Im building a vga controler based on the 16F4550 chip.
