Cracked open the Vic-20 today for a quick look.

Just how it left the factory.  I haven’t cleaned this at all!

I do see one major issue that needs to be addressed quickly.  I had already bought replacement capacitors before I opened the machine, and now I’m glad that I did.  I don’t see any damage to the board, but this one needs to go as soon as possible before bad things happen.  Of course, this is the only one that I couldn’t get at the local electronics shop, so time to order one.
