Note that even if a piece of software successfully tests chipram (using the cpu), there could still be a problem with custom chip chipram access.

What you need is basically a boot selector which swaps df0/df1. Installing such a thing in an A1200 can of course be a bit tricky due to the CIA chips being SMDs.

Osc current consumption is unlikely to be the issue. Without a schematic I'd say there's an osc startup issue, or it has failed permanently for some reason.

The Amiga doesn't care/need to see anything. The PAL-compatible modes are 50Hz (vertical); some vga monitors don't like to go much below 60Hz, and thus will not display pal, scandoubled or not.

I think you're confusing the horizontal and vertical refresh frequencies.. PAL/NTSC uses ~15kHz horizontal refresh, VGA modes are usually higher. PAL uses 50Hz vertical refresh, NTSC 60Hz.
