  1. Ok, last night I swapped in a 2732 burnt with the archiver ROM image and followed the instructions in the Archiver/Chip manual for install. No change. Endless spinning drive. I then burnt the standard 810 (Rev-C I believe) image to a 2716 and wired that up with instruction found in these forums...that also didn't work. Endless spinning. So maybe the original ROM is fine(?), and my next port of call is changing out the RAM...I have some on order. If that fails I'll have to start from scratch, and be 'lost' all over again 😞
  2. Oh...apologies. I thought it was you.
  3. Thanks! Can I ask what component you replaced that allowed your 810 to initially "get past POST" ? Tonight I'm going to burn a 2732 EPROM with the Archiver image and install that (with the appropriate mods). Fingers crossed that will fix it.
  4. Hello again. I've tested my 810's RIOT and the CPU by swapping them into an Atari 2600. They work fine. So this leaves me with the RAM and ROM next to test. Can I ask what component you replaced that allowed your 810 to "get past POST" ? Thanks
  5. Unfortunately not at the moment. If I'm lucky, I may be able to get a 1050 in a month or two.
  6. I recently go a 810 that is the always on busy light, and constant spinning mech...following this thread with anticipation.
  7. Hi Simius, are these still available?
  8. Didn't realise that was there!
  9. Thanks, I appreciate your advice. Yes, I'm not a member of a C64 forum (should be I guess). But thought someone here would certainly know.
  10. Does anyone know if I can use this C64 Power Saver with my Vic20 (NOT 2 pronged power version). https://www.pcbway.com/project/shareproject/W217819ASN17_C64_Power_Saver.html Thanks
  11. I just ordered one of these and it should be here (NZ) in a few of days. I've heard they are quite thick and may need filing down so they can sit a bit more flush with the case, as per the original.
  12. Just bumping this up a bit. Still hoping some generous person can help me out. Thanks!!!!
  13. As hueyjones70 mentioned. If I first test the memory with 'BYE' then reset out, and then press 'OPTION' it seems to work...go figure????
  14. I spent a few hours on the weekend restoring this machine, one thing I did was to completely strip back the keyboard and give it a very good clean. All keys are very responsive. I don't think it's been taken apart before, so I'm assuming the ROM is original.
  15. Mine does the same. The OPTION key works fine. Typing BYE works fine, and the computer seems to have no issues. Just won't boot into test mode when pushing OPTION. Weird. Looking forward to the replies.
