Thanks, I wish I had a test cartridge but all I have 64 Doctor, Is there a
better diagnostic program out there. Running 64 Doctor, the 64C passes all
the tests. 


OK, it sounds like your C64 is defective to me.  There must be some

So you feel that the PLA or 6510 is bad? What is the number on the PLA? The
6510 I should be able to pick up locally if I'm lucky. We have a Electronics
store that's been open since the late 50' and they have about anything. 

Also, do you know of any diagnostic software that is better than 64 doctor?

Today I'm going to run around and see if I can find a 64 somewhere. Antic
stores, pawn shops etc. Wish me luck. :) I'm also watching 2 on Ebay. 

Note: I hope it's ok to combine responses to you guys. Please let me know if
it would be better to seperate
