Screen display issue

Post by Adamlevin87 » Fri Dec 27, 2019 8:06 pm

I had a hxc 2001 installed in my sp1200 and I have an issue where half of the display is cut off. Has anyone seen this before and if so, any suggestions on how to fix it? Do you think it’s just an defective emulator?

Here’s a pic of the screen

This appears to be a defective LCD screen. Maybe Lotharek can send you a new one when he comes back from holidays.
You can also try to "fix" it yourself : Some pressures on the back may be enough to get back the contact on the lcd screen.

Thanks for your quick response jeff.

What exactly do you mean by pressure on the back. Should I open the machine and pushing in the ribbon cable more? Or do you just mean pushing on the drive face while it’s in the machine.

Thanks

yes, open the machine to have access to the lcd and try to make the contact again on the lcd.
