In RSTS development we once ran into DMC-11s not working reliably. The field service tech knew exactly what to look for, and started checking all the supply voltages. The spec says allowed tolerances are +/- 5%. He knew the reality for correct operation was -0%, +5%, so he tweaked all the supplies to read a hair above nominal.
Is there any way to attach a logic analyzer to various data paths on this machine?
