mvancopp Posted December 23, 2022 Share Posted December 23, 2022 (edited) Hi Everyone, I am new to the C64 community and have a C64 I recently came into my possession that prints "READY" at power-up but does not print the first line, "COMMODORE BASIC V2", or the second line stating the memory. Once READY is displayed I can type, such as "10 PRINT T" and press enter the screen clears and never returns. This C64 is a very early model with the 5 pin DIN video connector (a 326298 REV A motherboard). Does anyone have some pointers on where to start troubleshooting? Any suggestions are appreciated. EDIT: The first two lines are printed but disappear to quickly to completely read. I see some of the text flash quickly, like COMMODORE or BASIC, but are replaced by the READY and the rest of the screen appear as spaces. Thank you, Mark Edited December 23, 2022 by mvancopp Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
