Now that's interesting.  The knob which I assume is the contrast (just below 
the brighness one) appears to do absolutelyt nothing?

No chance to look at the Lisa last night but the weekend should give me some 
time out in the computer shack.  I'll check the 6504 signals and also those 
on the floppy card edge.  If I find anything unsual on the latter I'll try 
and follow it back through the circuit.

Thanks for the analysis and suggestions.
