@Akira : Sorry but I haven't a digital camera

@Retro: According to the news groups that is a 'normal' problem.

This is unfortunately intrinsic to the newer HMOS-2 VIC-IIs. (In this
case, the 128D's VIC-IIe.)

>Is there any hack to reduce or eliminate them?

In the 128, no, since you need the extra registers the VIC-IIe supplies.
I'm not sure if you culd replace the HMOS-2 VIC-II in a regular 64, but
I bet the power requirements are different. (Nicolas, I hear you reaching
for the followup button. :-P)

I've replaced the motherboard but the lines still appear
