So I purchased a pristine plus/4 in pristine box. Great looking machine. Plugged it in and it powers on fine screen comes up. But a random “@“ sign is in bottom left quadrant that doesn’t go away. Sometimes when it powers on it’s not there most often it is. All ports in peripherals work. Basic programs load and run but seem to crash randomly.
Finally the built in programs do not run correctly and I get “b2eak” instead of “break” when they fail.
My research says TED chip....is it worth taking a part and removing and resetting chip or will I cause more problems?
