    Yes, except the video sync logic is dead. In Paul Förster's PET 2001, one TTL
    that generates the VSYNC was dead, so the video showed only a faint
    horizontal line. It seems the VSYNC signal is also needed for the computer
    part to start up (IRQ source, IIRC), so this machine also showed the dead
    machine symptoms.
