A1200 Rev 2B mouse madness

Hello there my fellow forum chummies =)

Recently I had an A1200 RevB with the classic mouse movement problem; whereby the mouse point jumps wildly about the screen - almost random in its movement.

A hit up on the schematics points out that Paula [U3] is tied directly to the mouse ports X and Y pots - I removed the original Paula chip [U3]and replaced it with a known working one - since I was at it I also replaced the C307 and C305.

I buzzed out the resistors and they are all reporting good values.

so you might be thinking... ooo job done.... well... no.... infact its the same as before..

I can only conclude that either some feed to the paula has gone bad, I could use and would really appreciate some advice =)

Denise/Lisa has mouse counters, not Paula (this myth never dies..) Pot lines are used by analog joystick/paddles.

Check/replace U34 first.

Yes, replace U34 (it's labeled 74LS166A or just LS166A, it's located to the right by the floppy power connector), I've had problems with it earlier too. Also clean the pads under the SMD chip and take a good look near it for any damage or suspicious things!
