weird i/o port behaviour on ti-92
« on: May 23, 2017, 04:17:08 am »
Well, i've got a "little" problem with my ti-92.
So, i recently purchased a second-hand ti-92 on ebay. After unpacking, it was working almost perfectly (te i/o port was a bit picky, but worked), and it came with a real siverlink (!). So i tried to install fargo II... There were like no instructions on how to do this (except for DOS)! Then i found those pre-installed roms on ticalc (btw: my rom version is 1.12 05/08/96, if it helps), but they were being rejected by the ti linking software because of having an "incompatible file format". I tried to install TILP on my winxp computer, but it sadly didn't detect my calc. So i tried ito do it on my linux computer: I installed tilp and i began sending the backup file. At the end TILP said to me "backup failed", and art the same time my calc's screen began flashing from white to black, disregarding any input. When i tried to reset it with the button combinations , the screen chganged to b/w stripes, as long as the buttons were pressed. I've been forced to remove all the batteries. After this evrything was working just fine, besides the i/o port. I've been unable to connect to my computer with the ti software, nor with tilp, which additionally displayed me something abut "errno=11". Can someone help me? ???

If the I/O port is picky, it's possible that there's a bad connection in the I/O port, which would explain the problems you're having.

How long ago did it work? The silverlinks sometimes (theoretically at least) have problems where they just go bad after a while.

Spoiler For some of the calcs I own:



(actually I have quite a few more than this, but I don't feel like making bars for them all.)

About a month ago, after i tried to install fargo...
I simply had no time to write this post.

So a 5$ link could work?
