I borrowed a similar type of adapter cable (ADA954 3.3V TTL serial) which should do the same, but I cannot get any data out with it. I connected it to the MCU debug connector like the one you used (pin1 - black, pin4 - white and pin5 - green).

I found the problem... The white and green cables had to be the opposite way!

Now about trying to catch the switch-off issue... Do you have to have the continuous 'printing' on? Or does the MCU send out the error message anyway?

I would hook up the MCU to serial so you can get a better view of the issue. I use this part to access the MCU:

The manual has the pins. Let me know if you need those as well.

The connection itself seems to work as there is no error message if I run "sudo screen /dev/ttyUSB0 38400" on terminal . There appears just a white blinking rectangular (prompt?) but trying to input and run commands like 'help' or 'v' does not show anything on the window.

Trying to use 'ttyUSB1' which you had in your example gives just an error: non existent.

I tested also with 'Cutecom' but no output from the MCU, either. Connection itself seems to be ok.

Any idea what is wrong...? Is there some jumper on the motherboard which should be opened/closed so that the debug connector would work?

using a software method can't do that, but it can let you monitor gradual changes before the fatal ending. and it has the advantage of being free, requires no additional computer or cable.. you can have it right now.


That's true... When I have followed the voltages with MCUinfo, the values have been very stable. There are only four values in which there is a constant 10mv 'flip-flop':

Voltages (mV)

CPLD: 3320
XenaXorro A: 3300...3310
XenaXorro B: 1010
PCIe: 1000mv
Main 3.3V: 3350...3360
Main 2.5V: 2490...2500
Ethernet: 1200...1210
Platform: 1030
Core A: 1200
Core B: 1190
DDR3: 1490
Serdes: 1820

But the base level has not changed.

And you asked about replacing parts.. low voltages can be caused by the supply (regulator) or by excessive load. chips that draw too much power get noticeably warm.. but history puts the odds on a flakey regulator, which may not get warm at all.


These shutdowns has appeared totally randomly, both after the computer has been on for a long time, and just for a few minutes. That suggests there is no temperature issue, at least. Also, I have had both AmigaOS and Linux running when the issue appears, so the OS does not seem to affect it directly.

There is software to read your voltages from a shell, without needing an MCU cable. It's free, it's boring, and I can't test it right now, but if Bill tells me it's working, I'll put it up on the Depot.

Anyone sending an email to "lylehaze at gmail" can have it as soon as I reply to your mail. Just ask for "MCU"

!! NOTE There's already tools to do this on the Depot. Just search "MCU" !!
Yup, I'm losing my mind.


Thanks... But I'am already using 'MCUinfo.docky', which shows the same info. But as the shutdown happens suddenly, you do not have time to see which the voltages has dropped! So I think the MCU cable is the only way to record that info...?

My X5000/20 has had this problem over the years, and it just started getting worse and worse.


Thanks for your answer, Bill! I will check that cable you gave the link for...

But is there any way to fix that kind of problem? It is ironical that Xorro is not used anyhow by most users... Could you just 'eliminate' some component's related to Xorro, to get rid of that issue?

My X5000/40 has started to switch itself off every now and then. Within a year there has been at least 7 cases. The standby leds (green and red) stay on and the MCU Error led is blinking when this happens.

What is causing this issue? Can it be fixed somehow?

I have a top-quality PSU, and have checked the power cabling. CPU is not overheated, the temperature stays under 65°C.

@redfoxQuote:
My main issue now is when I launch MultiView from my AmiDock, I sometimes get a DSI error.

And YES ... I use MultiView not MultiViewer.

Do these DSIs appear when you start Multiview itself, or only after you try to open some file from it?

what filesystem is Odyssey?

SFS.

maybe some of Conf/... files Odyssey saves are garbled.

If that is the case, why do these freezes happen randomly? A corrupted .conf file should have effect on every time I open Odyssey or a cetrtain site....

I cannot remember which are original and which I have changed myself. How to present them as they are split into several .conf files...

At the moment I am using Odyssey version 1.23, I am using all the relevant Amiga sites and have also added the latest scripts available for Odyssey, even my email account (Emailn) can be used with Odyssey without any problems. I also use YouTube often via Yt.rexx and aiostreams amiga project. I have never had any problems like you described.

Which machine are you using?

in what circumstances the erros occur?
I am using the latest version form os4depot: Odyssey 1.23 r5 ( thx @kas1e ).

Me too... The freezes happen when I try to load some trivial page, e.g. the usual Amiga fora like Amigans.net. The page is loaded for a short time, then it suddenly stops and the whole system is freezed. Cannot even start a cli window anymore... Mouse pointer is still moving but clicking the buttons do not have any effect on anything. Power or reset button is the only way out (ctrl-A-A or ctrl-alt-alt are not responding anymore).

Quote:
I have no freezes after long use, tested on multiple AOS4 machines.
I have no special settings and I am not using youtube.js or any other custom script.

I have a X5000. I do not use youtube via Odyssey, either. I'm not sure about the settings, but if I do a fresh reinstallation and copy the settings file from the earlier installation, Odyssey do not show this freezings for at least a few weeks. So my settings cannot be the direct cause of the issue...

I use also Linux regularly ( and MOS occasionally), but have not seen anynything similar with them. So I doubt the cause could be a defective network connection.

Bug-fix updates for Odyssey?

Is there anyone developing Odyssey anymore? At least the bug which causes Odyssey, after 1-2 month's use after installation, to freeze when loading pages should be fixed! Having to continuously reisnstall Odyssey is not a decent solution.

At least there should be a script (or a program) which would clean-up automatically possible mess (corrupted files etc.?) created by the program...

@joergQuote:
I don't know if you can disable auto-booting the default completely, but if you use something like
setenv amigabootmenu_timeout 30 saveenv
you have enough time to change it to another boot option.

Thanks for the tip... But changing the timeout did not open automatically the boot menu. It only delayed booting, just like adding animcycles. So, this is not the solution I am looking for...

Opening the 1st bootmenu automatically (X5000)
Just popping in
Just popping in


How can I set AmigaOne X5000 to open _automatically_ (without pressing a key) the first bootmenu? There must be a U-Boot variable for that, but which is it?

I use currently AmigaOS, Linux and MOS so randomly that it is impractical to have one default boot OS, and to have to reach the bootmenu via a keyboard key (which I usually forget to press at time, and have to reboot ;).

Re: Picture viewers

@jabirulo

Thanks, that was a good piece of advice! The culprit was 'WarpWebP.datatype' V. 45.5. I got it from OS4Depot, and it is quite fresh.

Edit: Also the 'WarpJPG datatype' which Eliyahu recommended makes Multiviewer to crash.

@eliyahu

Thanks for the tips! Warpview works nicely, but with WarpJPG datatype also Multiview seems to work with all jpg files.

The only issue left is why Multiviewer does not start at all,,, I remember it worked still a couple of years ealier. There must be some system update which has unstabilized it. But as I have not used Multivewer for a long time, I cannot say when this problem appeared.

Are there any reliable picture viewers for Amiga OS41? I cannot use Multiview as it crashes with many jpg pictures created with ImageFX (even with small ones), and currently Multiviewer cannot be opened at all in my X5000 (crashes immediately with GR 80000003, both from icon and cli).

Re: PageStream on AOS4

One tip for PageStream users... If the 'Pagestream4.prefs' file gets corrupted (that happens usually once-a-year for me), Pagestream will freeze or guru when launched. That may happen even if you have not yourself edited and saved the prefs lately.

The cure is to delete that file, or replace it with a copy from a backup disk.

I don't quite understand your statement above though. How do you lose use of the 0 and 9 keys. All your doing is translating the multimedia keycodes, so they send the same codes the 0 and 9 key produce. Basically, your adding additional 0 and 9 keys. The normal 0 and 9 keys aren't affected at all and still work as normal.

Ah... I misunderstood how AllKeys does the translation, I thought it in the opposite way. Thanks for your clarification!-)
