Hallo Bo, I repaired my very first VIC-20 by stopping the 6502 right on the start by negating RDY. I then found out that the ROM did not get an enable-signal. The next step was making a circuit that enabled me to let the 6502 run step by step. Then I attached LEDs to the lines. Etc., etc., etc.... Maybe an idea for you as well? Good hunting.
