Oh no, came to switch on my (breadbin) C64 this evening and all I get is this 😦
I’ll use my other c64c to copy one of the diagnostic cartridge images to my EasyFlash Cart and see if I can spot the problem.
Bit gutted really as this was my very first c64 i owned and is the one with JiffyDOS installed.
Let’s hope it’s something fixable. The fact that there’s at least something on screen is a good sign?
To be continued…..
Prepping a test cart
C64 Doctor next
Pretty much the same results although the kernel ROM test has failed – although I suspect is a false reading due to my JiffyDOS rom as I get the same failure on my c64c which also has the pimped rom.
Thanks for the tips Porchy. Unseated U18 and tried again but still no change and a screen full of garbage.
Reseated it and applied a bit of pressure to U1 & U2. Fired it up and….
…..we’re back in business. Going to soak test it for a bit but so far so good!
