Commodore 64 left outside for over a decade! Could it still work??

September 30, 2018 0 By wbrown

I was given a Commodore 64C that had been left outside for a decade or more in rural Oregon. It dealt with everything mother nature could throw at it while it sat outside. Could this machine possibly still work?

Watch to find out!

NOTE: The soldered chip I said might possible be the SID was actually the PLA. The SID is the socketed chip by the video connector.
