    My classic won't start, as I went through a long time ago in this thread

    I opened it up to see if there were any glaring issues (things blown up, etc) only to be faced with the back of the CRT, and no obvious way to get to the juicy bits.

    Does anyone have a guide to getting one of these apart?

    I don't have a guide but have seen them online though. I used one to take mine apart to make a MacQuarium. Be VERY careful with the screen, even if it's been unplugged for a long time it can still hold a deadly charge. If you inadvertently separate the yolk from the glass you could end up dead if not properly grounded - wearing rubber electrical gloves, etc.

    Or even worse, you could damage your Macintosh!

    Well, that was stupidly easy. I was shocked by all the DANGER signs and they distracted me from how easy it was to get the logic board out (pull out all wires, it slides out).

    While looking online I found a classic repair manual, according to my symptoms (bright screen, arrow in top left corner) I have a dead SCSI chip.
