Thanks for your feedback... I do found the problem, which is related to my external Arithmetic Coprocessor Card. Not sure why, without this card, everything works well. So I need to find the (HW/SW?) problem of my card, first.

Again, many thanks
What card is it??

Testing Q2 with the multimeter and replacing electrolytics C20, C24, C25, C30, C31 won't harm I guess.

Re: TS1500 no video
