Well, without having the thing under my hands I can't do anything.
I think the 8032 schematics is on funet, and I have hand-drawn
parts of an 8296 schematics. 
Starting from there and being additionally armed with 65** and TTL etc 
databooks I would use an oscilloscope and see if the 
clock signals work, the CPU address lines, data lines and select lines...

But then I simply switched chips with another (untested) 8296 board to find 
the broken chip in my 8296...
