I just got myself a PET64 from Yahoo Auction Japan. Quite a rare machine I hear, so I'm not sure how one ended up in Japan. I got if for a decent price as I don't think the Japanese knew exactly what it was. Anyway, It arrived the other day, after a quick internal inspection, I powered it on. I can hear the transformer buzzing(!), but no action at all on the screen at all, and it doesn't seem like the chips are getting warm at all Maybe need to leave it on a little longer to make sure, but I didn't want to do that incase bad voltages kill anything more). There are 4 wires leading from the small PCB which is attached to the transformer to the C64 motherboard, and I have measured the voltage from the black wire (GND?) to the 3 others. Here are the reading i get: White: - 100mv (KEY) White - 100mv Black (I'm guessing this is ground) Red - 4.98v That's as far as I have gotten. Next I will remove the motherboard and see where exactly these 4 wires go. Anyway, I was just wondering if anyone had any insights or thoughts.
