Hi All
Have just recently got hold of a Philips 2000C model with green screen and twin 640K floppys. Cured the power connector problem . Cured the smoking PSU but now the next problem . Got vertical green bars on the display. I do not have any boot disks so cannot go any further.
Any help with cct diagrams schematics would be useful as would any pointers . I suspected Video ram but each reset brings back same pattern and not random characters.

So any pointers or help and last of all where can I get some boot CP/M disks for this beast.

Thanks

Do the green bars roll, or are they static on the screen?

They appear to be static . But as they are vertical it would be difficult to see very easily.

No I am sure they are static.

Is that the same as a Philips Micom 2000? If so, I might have a boot disk.

Dave Dunfield has Philips P2000 system disks in his archive.
http://www.classiccmp.org/dunfield/img/index.htm

I've got one of those computers too, but I'm still struggling with how to transfer software on floppy.

Not sure what a Micom 2000 looks like .

Look at this site it shows what my system is like as well as loads of others.

By using Dave Dunfield's ImageDisk (http://www.classiccmp.org/dunfield/img/) I believe. Full documentation provided on his site.
