I dunno, I think it has something to do with being able to find the right address lines. Perhaps repair-bas has some experience with these computers.

I also have a Sanyo PHC-70FD. Hans Oranje did the memory expansion. Ask him @ msx[AT]hansoranje.demon.nl.

I looked on my electronic parts and 128 kB is the maximum.

It is also possible to connect new drives and change the computer to 230 Volt.
No extra stepdown-trafo needed.

Only change one part in the power supply.

How much memory did he put in your Wavy?

Nice! It's much better then 64 or even 128K ^_^

Can you open your computer and take picture of mods? May be this way we'll figure out how to add 512K in Wavy

Is that a good idea for a technical lake as myself?

to place bigger mem into a wavy is simple if you can solder good enough
Smile
so dont use that big solder things

15watt is enough for a good solder expirience Smile

step one : cut out the old memmory

step two : remove the pins from the memmory from the pcb heat a little bit and remove it with a pincet

step three : put the 4 new ic sockets in its place

step four : place two extra capasators next to the IC sockets

step five : put 4 x 414256 100ns or 80ns

step six : search for the wire bridges wire them all to

1 2-3
1 2-3

and and test it !

and then you have 512KB internal Wink
