So I purchased an Apple IIe yesterday. It wasn't working, had horizontal bars across the screen. After much troubleshooting, replacing the 6502 did the trick.
I had an old Rockwell 65c02 lying around so that's what I put in. I'm not sure if that's going to cause any issues at all? I believe there are some differences between the 6502 and 65c02 but I don't know how those would relate to any issues with the Apple IIe.
First question I had I found an answer to on the forum, it was basically about the Delete key and it not deleting characters from the screen. I now know that printing out a delete character is its intended purpose.
Next question. The arrow keys, I can move the cursor left, right and down but when I press the up arrow key the cursor doesn't move, it disappears while holding down the up arrow as if it is going to move but it never does so that leads me to believe that the up arrow key is functional. Is the cursor not supposed to be able to move up?
Along those same lines. I have a game, Ms. Pacman... I can use the arrow keys to move but only left and right work, up and down does not.
Hoping that someone here could shed some light.. thanks in advance.
