Commodore 64 Recap
« on: September 20, 2017, 12:18:33 pm »
This was a shotgun recap of my original C64 that was acting strange, no other work was done.  This did resolve the issue, as demonstrated in the video, subsequent testing of the removed components revealed some failures.

Mmm. I do love seeing a C64 all exposed like that. :)

Also, good on you not using the original PSU. That darn thing kills more VIC20s/C64s than anything.

ironically im an analogue guy, mostly tube electronics.  With that said, I can see full well the danger in the failure of the C64 power bricks of which I have several.  I do plan on doing some teardown and applied failure moves.  (not on a C64 of course, to a dummy load)
