There is a 74LS86 at UD6, but maybe it is functionally equivalent? Anyway, using my multimeter there seems to be signal from pin 39 on the 6545 to pin 1 on the UD6 chip, From pin 1 to 3 there seems to be a signal, but with 1.7 kOhm resistance? I tried to lift the 324744-01 PLA, but then the computer refused to start. I also noticed one pin on the character EPROM (yes, this is a localized machine like all the other PETs) was bent, so I lifted and reseated it, with no improvement. Maybe pin 24 is not supposed to have contact anyway? I got ahold of an EPROM burner, but it only takes 2516/2716/2532 chips. Theoretically, there is a possibilty to find equally old spare chips from a drawer or other broken PETs, if they are somewhat compatible inbetween eachother. Of course, we're talking Commodore computers, so maybe I shouldn't count on that... :-) -- Anders Carlsson Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
