Dead C64 breadbin with black and white screen garbage

Recommended Posts

Hi, anyone ever seen this before on a C64? I just got one and it is broken so trying to troubleshoot it. I have a working C64 as well but unfortunately the working one only has a few socketed chips. I am thinking PLA from what I have read but the PLA was socketed in the good one. Any tips out there to fix this?


I will add that none of the RAM chips get very hot when I leave it on for 10 minutes or so.


Thanks in advance :).

It was the VicII chip... U19. I was able to swap with a working C64's and the issue followed the chip.
