We have a moonbase with a data shifty error (graphics reversed and split) we have a space invaders with looks like a por problem I'm looking at that over Xmas we have a Gallag with a sync problem and a super Mario boot with a colour problem (got a NTSC converter IC that only works if I manually get the xtal to start by the power of my finger) not a dry joint u can see the ossilation build up with the colours flashing then let go and it runs in colour!!

Thanks for the recommend, I am doing repairs i'm just in backlog again at the moment.

The POR issue on your space invaders may well be the power supply - my advice (sorry purists) don't bother debugging the PSU, just ground the POR reset line - the board will make some weird noises for a second or two when you power on and then after a few seconds will reset and the game will come on - if that's the issue.

I have a wealth of knowledge on SI and Williams boards to share out at some point after all the pain and suffering i've been through with them.

Any news on the Galaga boot I sent you in 2017?  Have tried contacting you via your work email/ukvac PM and I never get anything back.
