This is probably more window dressing than anything else, but I added heat sinks to the VIC-20’s hotter running chips. Still, 🤞🏽 it helps prolong the life of its expensive and hard to source components

I also discovered the source of the video not working when I first plugged in this (the original) main board: one of the potentiometers for adjusting the video signal is broken.

A shake fixes it, but I’ll have to figure out a long term fix there CB62C551-67E4-4F9E-97AB-A537318B910B.jpg
