Since the video logic appears to be working, I would suspect the system ROMs. If you have already swapped them out, the next thing to look at would be the 2 74LS244 bus drivers for the ROMs. If you have access to a multichannel triggered oscilloscope, you can check them in circuit. Otherwise, you would have to replace them just to check the possibility. They seldom survive being unsoldered.

This appears identical in every boot. If I reset the machine (by quickly turning mains switch off and back on) I can see screen filled with random characters, then it blanks (like during normal reset) but goes to the ?-mark screen again. As you can see in the photo, most of the bigger chips have small heatsinks installed and all electrolytic caps on the board were replaced earlier. > > I have tried re-seating all socketed chips but still no go. Only chips running more than warm are the two MOS MPS 2114 chips (warm to touch but not as hot as fe. shorted RAMs I replaced in a 64C once). > > Any ideas how to proceed from here?
