I wouldn't power it up until it has been recapped. Philips capacitors from that era are know it fail.
Did mine the other year.

Fun fact.
The issue 4 pcb versions are rare. They also have a design flaw in the NICK chip that cause display issues after the chip warns up.
It's also a good idea to replace the power supply. If I remember they are epoxy filled like the C64 power supplies.

Im surprised that no one is making a power supply for retro computers yet. I think theres -5Vdc +5Vdc, -12Vdc +12Vdc and -9Vdc +9Vdc. I think then you've covered everything.

All you need to do then is by an adapter lead to go between the PSU and your Retro computer of choice then. :-X

They already do make them. You have to go looking for them. The first place to check are the retro forums for a particular retro computer.

Modern keyboards have 12 function keys (F1 - F12) so the keyboard would be huge if it had FUNCTION 1 - 12 written on each over-sized key, like a child's toy computer. Abbreviation for the win.  ;D

But yeah I love old computer stuff too.  :D

If you want to know what an Enterprise 64 issue 4 looks like on the inside.
This picture was take before I recapped it.


And here's it is setup.

The Enterprise had the Dave and the Nick chip.

I cant help but wonder, did Commodore steal there idea for the Amiga 500 from the Enterprise ::)

It's nothing new. Every company has an internal code name for an their chips. Just look at Intel and AMD.
