Hey there! I have 2 dead PAL consoles here I'm looking forward to repair.
There is no RF output. When putting my finger on C32 and Q3 (the parts just next to the CA3086), I get a hint of a signal on the TV but it isn't syncronized.I assume the modulator circuitry is dead?
I get an RF signal of some kind, i.e. a colored screen (most of the time blue-ish) and sometimes some sort of sound. Like a short buzz. Is the cartridge port dirty/corroded or is the RIOT chip shot?
