    Remember a little knowledge is a dangerous thing. You can do more damage than you started with if little information. Study your subject..

    Thanks again for the assistance. I found a youtube tutorial on DC coupling and trigger points. A nice steady waveform now. I'm learning!

    Correct, if the CRO was set to AC and reading the DC supply, then the AC is a sign that the filter capacitors are not doing there job properly. That much AC on the 5VDC rail could cause problems. Keep at it, and keep asking questions on the forum, its how we all learn stuff

    Unstable clock waveform - Atari Sprint 2

    I preface my question with the fact I'm very inexperienced. I'm back learning on an Atari Sprint 2 PCB now that we are all locked inside. To start I ensured there's a good 5v, The clock reaches the CPU but looks like this across the board. All jumping around. Is this ok? If wrong what would cause it? Cheers
