Memory Trouble

A black screen Commodore 64C Version E short board (Assy no. 250469 Rev. 4) landed on my workbench a couple of days ago. Everything started out as a simple power switch replacement and memory IC swap, but ended up being a little more complicated than that. I guess it is important to double check all applied soldering so nothing gets shorted or else new faults may be created unintentionally. The PCB is green so I guess that green Version E boards are not that uncommon as I fabulated in an earlier post found here. Some of the IC’s that were exchanged during the board repair can be seen here.

  1. Yes! A faulty power supply can fry a whole bunch of chips and cause a black screen 😉
