It could be the SID chip itself. If the computer was manufactured prior to 1986, then it may have an earlier (more buggy?) version of the SID. This is, of course, only a theory, but the SID may be old enough that problems have arose over the age of the computer chip itself.

If the cables are fine, then this leaves the SID as a primary problem to look into. Check the website "Censible Software", as they have loads of Commodore hardware and accessories which may immediately address your needs (and inexpensively, too).
