This retro piece of history was a gift to my grandfather for Christmas in the 80s and then it was given to me after he passed. My dad said he never knew what it was for so he never used it. I did try and power it on, but I did not get the start up screen. I did hear the four beeps and occasionally I would get a green line in the center of the screen but then it would fade out. It looks to be a loose connection somewhere but I will not be troubleshooting it before selling it. THIS ITEM IS SOLD AS IS (price has been reduce for this issue). Once the issue IS diagnosed and fixed, you will have one of the nicest Commodores still out there. After looking everything over, all the solder joints and connections contacts inside are pristine. There’s little to no rust or oxidation visible throughout the PCB’s. Upon closer inspection the soldering techniques used are the same as the NASA standard and Joint standard currently used today and are quite impressive. As far as the outside, there are very few scuffs or marks on both the computer and floppy disk drive. Very slight discoloration as well. The floppy disks are heat-shrinked and still in the original packaging and have never been opened. All the wires that are needed are included as well as the owners manuals. Also includes back up ram chips. Honestly I think this is one of the nicest vintage computers I’ve come across aside from it not booting and should probably be in a Smithsonian somewhere.
Also I will be shipping the two separately due to weight constraints.
