I’ve installed the C64VE to my C64 and I only get a black screen or if I’m lucky a screen filled with static (from the original video output) or horizontal lines from the component video.
The VICII chip is a 6569R3 and the motherboard revision is what I think you call a ‘long’ PAL board
Can we see some pictures of your installation?
It could be that the VIC2 adapter is not seated properly. It requires a little force.
Also, pin 21 of the vic2 doesn’t look like its going into the socket. Remove and re-seat it.
Ok, now I get static 100%
The purplish image is going to my BVM and the static one is going to my retrotink2X.
If I plug the the VIC2 straight into the motherboard as before – should the C64 just work as before through composite?
I connected the VIC2 chip direct and got the same result.
After that, I reseated all of the socketed chips on the main PCB and it booted up fine, put back in the kit and it worked great.
Thanks for the help!
Glad you got it solved !
