I am having a problem I hope someone can help me with. I have a CFFA3000 v1.0 Rev C that I successfully installed in my Apple IIe Platinum back in 2018. I have recently wanted to get back into my retro Apple computing, and unfortunately, I can not get the card to boot, or even get into the menu.
I have tried in an Apple II+, a IIgs Rom01, and the original IIe Platinum. I have experimented with removing all other cards and trying to boot. I have booted, and then done a PR#X (just hangs), I have booted and gone directly into the monitor to try to call the menus directly using *C[X]30G (no luck). I have performed the Power-on self tests (Switch 6 ON) and passed successfully. I have also been able to reflash (blind) the firmware with the latest CFFA.xsv and CFFA.bin together, separate, and trying older versions (all successfully). I am seeing the (2,7) blinks after the fireware updates, and (3,7) after the CPLD updates. I have even tried multiple Compact Flash cards, including the one I received with the card. Also, on the IIgs, I did flip Switch 7 to on, but I was never able to see the CFFA3000 CDA.
Does anyone have any ideas? Is there a way I can enable (Switch 3 ON) and view the detailed debugging without access to the menus? Are there any other tests I can try. The card seems responsive and it is very strange I'm not getting the menu (holding M at boot).
Recently, I have been attempting to go into the monitor at the card and follow the assembly to see if it is possibly corrupt. Does anyone have a listing of the initial dump at say *C[X]30G that I could compare the first 20-30 bytes with?
I have also registered for the dreher.net forum at https://dreher.net/forum1/, but there appears to be very little activity.
thanks for reading.....
