    Default C64 problems

    Hi all,
    Looking for advice/info on two c64 machines I have. First one is a breadbin model 1983 REVB 250407. Switching it on gives nothing on screen but their is something going out as the screen does go black. Kind of very light distortion on the screen. Opened up the system and one of the small capacitors is split the C200 one. Also chip 906114-04 (U17) is very very hot. I have a new capacitor on order but wondering if this chip is also away?

    Second is the 64C and has a flickering screen. The details on screen are all correct but as if the machine is going off and on again. I can type and the characters come up ok.

    Thanks for any info/help.

    1st one. Replace the PLA. Ask @eslapion here.

    2nd one. Check the on/off switch.

    Ah that chip is the PLA googled it and I see it goes all the time so will get another. Switch on the second seems ok.

    get a dead test cart, easy to figure out what's wrong with one (if it doesn't work either CPU, PLA or VIC is bad, it only needs 3 chips to work)
    If it works it may give you some hints with startup screen flashes or on-screen info.
