Hi everyone,

I've recently acquired a Philips NMS 8250 and the strangest thing happened today.

Normally, the machine would boot, show a blue background and the logo would scroll up on a black background with white letters, now, after testing a new cartridge game i got, the background on boot is black/green and the logo scrolling up has a blue background with white letters.

After the boot, everything is the right color again and works fine.

Does anyone now what caused this and how i can fix it?

Thanks in advance guys,

Nevermind, i just found out the solution.

I had to type SET TITLE,1 in BASIC and it is back to normal.

That's only the fix Smile the boot colors shouldn't change automagically.
The cause may lie in a worn-out battery...

a worn-out battery would result in a reset of the parameters, which are a black/white MSX logo on a blue screen.

In order to reload your MSX, you could have it turned on for a day or so. If, after that, the settings are still being forgotten, the battery's gone off and you should replace it. Those batteries aren't hard to find, so you're lucky Wink
