Re: [midatlanticretro] Re: Commodore 64 Question
- The difference in current availability of the power supply will not make any
You said earlier that you had a black screen.
If you turn on the TV and have a snowy picture and then when you turn on the
C-64 it turns black or just blank,
it means the video chip and modulator in the C-64 are functioning.
There is probably something else wrong in the C-64.
The best bet is to set up another C-64 that works OK and then swap out the
computer to remove all doubt.
I can bring a computer to spring fling for testing if you can't find another

Just taking a quick look at the pinouts, the C64C power supply gives out 1.7A
instead of 1.5A for +5DC. I don't know if this would cause a problem or
not...I'm not the best when it comes to electronics.
Evan - I'll have to check my power supply with a voltage meter, and I'll get
back to you. If it turns out to be the power supply (which is what I'm hoping),
I could always get a power supply at the next MARCH work day. I figure you guys
might welcome some younger assistance when working on the museum. You old timers
don't wanna be breaking any bones or anything! ;-) Hahahahaha
