Hi everyone,

Trying to restore a bare-bones TL/2 that does not Post... it powers on
with
the floppy light on but nothing else.

There appears to be damage to the oscillator/crystal on the board.

I have someone who will look at this in a few weeks...

Atreyu

TL/2 is a pretty special system, I have one that worked fine after I got working xt kb and cga interfaces connected to it. Have you tried connecting a POST card to it?
The Tandy 1000s have non-standard floppy connectors so if you don't have an original drive you'll need to mod a cable or cut some pins on the floppy drive to avoid shorting the power pins to ground.
