Re: What's my next step to fix poorly QL

What's my next step to fix poorly QL

I have two QLs, one boots and display's perfectly on this screen (UHF) the other is giving me this display with no response after pressing F2. I'm new to QL hackery so can anyone help me here. I am pretty sure it is not the display. Thanks Dave https://phased.co.uk/img/uploads/ql_not_worky.jpg
