Re: Apple II ntsc crystal

If you are getting colors at all, that means the receiver is locking on the color burst, so your frequency is most likely within margin and your problem is probably elsewhere.

best crystal I have found for the purpose is:

XT9UNLANA14M31818
Vishay Crystals
14.31818MHz series

Unfortunately they are no longer in production. Best source might be a scrap A2 motherboard that was configured for NTSC. If you are absolutely stuck, drop me a direct email, and I may be able to help you.

Regards,
Mike W.
