Decided that yesterday was the day to recap the Vic. It wasn’t in bad shape, but the big 4700uF cap was leaking and corrosion was heading on down towards the motherboard. That’s just not cool.
Here’s the insides of a 2-pin Vic-20. It just uses a 10VAC power supply instead of the newer versions that use a DIN connector that supplies 5VDC and 9VAC.
Here’s the problem child:
Everything else was replaced since it was opened up, and I had the caps. There aren’t many to replace either, I think around 7?
I did the 128 this morning, but didn’t take and pictures. There are a fair bit more to change, but not bad. Maybe an hour or so.
