I just received my (known to be faulty) Macintosh Classic II that I acquired for the cost of shipping thanks to a very generous woman on the forum. Unfortunately, the rabid gorillas at DPD couriers managed to damage the Mac's case during delivery Just like they did with two of my Power Mac G5's... Anyway, I plugged it in and at first I was largely disappointed as I could hear the HDD spinning away, yet there was no startup "beep" and nothing came up on screen at all. However, I then thought that it's probably just the brightness! The same thing scared me when I got my 512Ke, and the brightness just turned out to be at 0. (Who does that just to terrify the buyer? ). Anyway, the CRT is clearly fine as I can get some image to come up on screen. However, it is obviously is far from fully functional. (Accidental alliteration, apologies.) I believe this is a very common issue with these Classic II's and I've read of many people who have been able to fix them with little difficulty. Any advise guys?
