I have two identical computers: Sony MSX2 HB-F1XD. Both work fine, but one of them has a strange boot MSX logo. MSX letters are white on red background, and the border is yellowish-brownish.

I recently saw similar defect here: cgi.ebay.nl/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=21084&item=5113879063

What could be the reason of this problem? I suspect dead capacitors, but need help anyway.

Go to BASIC and type:

SET TITLE "",1

If problem reappears later, change RTC battery.

I think they just thought it was a cool gimmick.

it would fill up the specs list, nothing more. it's completely useless.
(however back in the days when every computer shop did sell MSX2 computers it was fun to just: set tittle password / color 0,0,0 / width 1 / set screen
just to fuck around.. . .dunno, we we're kids (uhm, 16 years or so?? )so excuse our childish behaviour.

So, in short, if I'll remove batteries for a while, the red/yellow crap will be gone?
