Hello Everybody, writing from Italy, so sorry for my typo's... I own a working II Europlus (the EUR version of the +) and a IIe which I'd like to restore. By switching it on, the IIe beeped and I got a strange "Apple §°" something message with nothing else (attached the pic). Then, I went to another room looking for a floppy to insert into the drive (i had one connected) but when I came back after 3 mins I felt a 'burning smell' coming out from the IIe, which switched off. I waited 15 mins then I tried to switch it on again but no any beeps and the only message "IOU FLAG E5:6 7 9 0". Then I told myself that it blew up... I waited another 30 mins, removed the plug, opened the upper chassis and removed all the expansion cards (there was a "Z80" card (for CP/M I assume), a "Le Chat Mauve" (think graphic card) and a "Super Serial" card) and tried to switch it on again. I got the beep back, the 'uaual' "Apple §°" message and to avoid other burning smells I switched it off. Finally, I put all the cards back in their places and I tried the last power on, and I got the beep again. Considering that I'm not a 'Oscilloscope' guy and I'm not able to make so many 'professional' tests... do you know which could be the issue(s) and what kind of simple tests I can do to give you some additional information? Being in Italy the IIe's and II+'s aren't so common so I can't easily find somebody to repair my puppy. Moreover, if i should buy some replacement parts I would like to order with some 'confidence' without throwing away too much money... I'm able to replace a chip, but I'm not a professional. Attaching some pics for reference. Ask for any additional photos you may need to understand better the issue. Thanks for any help.
