Hi Andre, on your pictures it looks like you built something to generate the 50 Hz square signal, so the signal is there ? My CBM 700 sometimes shows the cursor and does not start up. Wiggling a bit at the eprom adapters helps. The rom sockets are bad, I have to replace them. Maybe your roms have contact problems too. Try removing the basic roms, the machine schould then start into the TIM monitor. Christian Am 19.10.2014 21:08, schrieb A.
