Just received a beautiful PET 4016 in lovely visual condition. Never had a pet before so little about repair and maintainance. When i switch it on i get a screen full of random symbols. Anything easy i can try? Reseat chips, dust around inside?

Thanks Gav

I'm certainly keeping an eye on that project. He also makes the PETdisk that gives you disk drive emulation with SD access on the pet.

Good luck with the troubleshooting!
