    2001-8 Chicklet Pet Fault Finding.

    2001-8 Chicklet Pet Fault Finding.

I followed it to pin 2 on C1 the 74ls74 which I believe acts as a Master/slave flip flop circuit from what I've read. But the output is constantly high on Pin 5 which I would expect to be...

    Commodore Superpet SP9000

    Hi I have a few questions about the Superpet:- How rare are they? How much are they to buy? Can it work without the dongle in the top board? Do they have two or four switches on the side? Can you obtain the side switches and roms? Where do they plug into on the three board earlier type...

    Out of Memory error

    Points towards a bad RAM initially as first thought, piggybacking doesn't always show a bad RAM chip. Personally I would remove all of the old RAM chips and socket them for the replacement 4164's as they are cheap and plentiful.
