Please, check the grid. There's 10 cells in rows 5 and 6, cannot make a unique solution puzzle out of it as it is now.

I added some clues to make it symmetrical and unique. Try one of these instead:

Code: Select all
 *-----------*
 |.5.|6..|784|
 |...|.1.|...|
 |48.|...|...|
 |---+---+---|
 |...|.6.|9.5|
 |1..|.3.|..8|
 |5.4|.7.|...|
 |---+---+---|
 |...|...|.93|
 |...|.4.|...|
 |763|..5|.2.|
 *-----------*

 *-----------*
 |.1.|6..|784|
 |...|.1.|...|
 |48.|...|...|
 |---+---+---|
 |...|.6.|9.5|
 |1..|.3.|..8|
 |5.9|.7.|...|
 |---+---+---|
 |...|...|.93|
 |...|.4.|...|
 |763|..5|.2.|
 *-----------*
