Thread: Commodore 16 won't boot - what next after replacing the TED

  1. Default

    I've learned the hard way that it's best to buy a confirmed working Commodore 16/Plus 4. I finally ended up with one myself. You can use it to troubleshoot your non-working unit. The unfortunate thing is that the parts that fail aren't common.

    The C16 and Plus4 are regarding the CPU and TED chip, just a disaster waiting to happen. It is not a question if they will fail but when...
    Both the TED and the CPU are made in an older process and they destroy themselves.
    Only thing to slow down the decay is to put a cooler on the chip and it will prolong the life a bit.

    If they are so self destructive then what is a working C16 worth these days?
    What I collect: 68K/Early PPC Mac, DOS/Win 3.1 era machines, Amiga/ST, C64/128
    Nubus/ISA/VLB/MCA/EISA cards of all types
    Boxed apps and games for the above systems
    Analog video capture cards/software and complete systems
