As noted elsewhere, I had left my Oric with an Amiga ST pro while I
was on holiday, and he's managed to fix my Oric!
As suggested by Fabrice as possibly being faulty, it needed a new
6502.
I can't wait to pick it up and try out my old games!!
All for the price of a pint!! (+ expenses of course)

Amiga ST? Is this an Atari ST or Amiga 500?

If Atari had put a better offer per share, the urban legend
says that the Amiga might have become the Atari ST. Or maybe
Atari Lorraine? Oh well, that's just speculation and "what-ifs".

Amiga did become the Atari ST. Originally the ST was more popular then
people went for the better hardware. Atari redesigned but the software
tended to use the old FM hardware. Amiga won the market share.

Good News - got the Oric back home and it worked fine with its new
2MHz (I nearly typed 2GHz!!) Motorola 6502. I hooked it up to a tape
deck, ran Xenon-1, and it loaded - FIRST TIME!!
I'm really chuffed that it's up and running.
I'm thinking about projects now, first maybe copying my games (and any
downloadables) to load from CD, a new BASIC ROM (Its still the
original Oric-1 V1.0) to enable the fast loading trick, and Scart
cable project if I have the time and money.
