Hello there,

I have a MSX TURBO-R A1ST. I really like to use it setting width 80. My problem is that I cannot save the settings.

I have already tried SET SCREEN command, and I also have changed several times the batteries (at the bottom of the computer).

I think that's a hardware problem, but I don't know how to repair it.

Any idea?

Thanks,
Alex

Doesn't the A1ST, like the A1GT use an ordinary penlite battery? Check the bottom of your turboR and check for a battery cover!

I had the same problem with my Turbo-R GT. Try removing the batteries (2xAA) and cleaning up the contacts. It worked for me. (The old batteries in my computer must have leaked and oxidised the contacts)

Thanks for answering.

Anyway, I already cleaned the contacts and I already changed the batteries (several times).

Are you using alkaline or rechargeable batteries? I vaguely remember my GT being quite picky with rechargeables... Also, are you sure that nothing is running at boot that might change the width?

The last time I changed the batteries I used ones from IKEA.

I think I'll check again and I'll post the results, or some photos, if that helps.

Thanks,
Alex
