Note: DO NOT USE AN ORGINAL COMMODORE 64 POWER SUPPLY with this computer. I recommend one from Electroware as I've tested their power supplies extensively and they're great. Other modern replacements are probably also good however, The original power supplies can fail in ways that aren't detectable, until your computer is dead from over voltage. From a wise guru Ray Carlsen: "Although the Commodore PS was designed with a current capacity of 1.5 Amps, it runs hot inside with a load of less than 1 Amp (C64 with cart plugged in) because it's a sealed-in-epoxy unit. This prevents user tampering and electric shock hazard but it holds the heat in and "cooks" those internal components eventually. It cannot be repaired if it fails and the heat cannot easily escape except through the epoxy case which is a relatively poor conductor of heat. There are several modes of failure for a linear PS. The worst and most destructive PS failure is caused by a bad regulator that shorts out internally so its input voltage (more than 11 volts) is passed directly to its output! Most semiconductors (transistors and IC's) inside the computer run at 5 volts DC and can withstand a minor voltage overload without damage... but some cannot. The eight RAM chips in a C64 are especially vulnerable to over-voltage damage. Those IC's have an "absolute maximum rating" of 5.5 volts and are quickly destroyed above that maximum level. I've seen several CBM bricks that always worked normally when cold but would output excessive voltage when warm. Those supplies went on to damage several users computers because the owners didn't realize the fault was repeatable. Any PS brick failure means it must be replaced. This version of the C64, sometimes called the "Long Board" is found in most C64s found in North America, as they the original process ICs and the original chip count. This particular unit has the 250407 version of the motherboard, which was the second major version made of the classic "Longboard". The SID sound chip here is the 6581. Electrolytic capacitors wear/dry out over time, especially ones over 30 years old, so replacing them prevents the most common failures and prevents additional damage from occurring, it is for this reason that I replace these capacitors in all Commodore hardware that I sell. Any MOS logic chips, other than the custom video generator or other customer chips have been proactively replaced. The plastic case pieces have been meticulously scrubbed and cleaned. System board has been fully cleaned of any grime from age and excess flux from the original manufacturing removed. Dust free! 60 day returns for any reason, with no cost on return shipping (Domestically in the US). Buy with confidence. Why do I test for 24 hours? I've seen a lot of C64s pass testing fine and then around hours 8-14 something will fail, the system will lock-up, etc. Sometimes this requires a few days to track down what is an intermittent failure. The computer might appear to be fine most of the time under, but then fail seemingly randomly on occasion. Thus, I take extra time to ensure that everything is running 100% before listing. Computer only. No power supply, cables, controllers etc. Capacitors replaced on ASSY 250407 version of the motherboard: C810uf50vC1210uf50v (Rev 25v C90470uF 25v C91100uF 16vC9410uf50vC102 10uf 50vC108 10uf 50vC107 10uF 50v (Rev C)C108 10uF 50v (Rev C) C38 4.7nF capacitor installed to correct the amount of force needed for the Restore key to function.
