It isn't a bad connection, it isn't a popped out chip, it's the power supply. You know... I checked it, really! Located the first 74LS*** I could find, located GND and VCC, checked it, et voila: A nice 5.00 volts. How the **** could I know that the thing has two seperate 5 volt circuits.. Martijn (Oh yeah.
