C64 Problem


Flushed with my successes earlier I pulled out two C64s, one with a 
busted pound key and the other not working at all [ black screen ] The 
one with the busted key was posting loads of odd symbols on the screen. 
So I swapped the keyboards. I did intend just swapping the lids over but 
amazingly they have the slots in different places on the back. The 
boards are different also and the one has the metal shielding. There is 
a component on the back of the keyboard and on the faulty one where 
there was no shielding some plastic had been stuck over the component.

After a little bit of a struggle with the keyboard screws [ there is 
always one ] I hooked the C64 back up and she fired up first time and 
worked without fault. Incredible. So that is two C64s back from the 
dead. Can't be bad.

Just enough time for some Vital Light me thinks.
