I just picked up a Macintosh TV. It doesn't power on. When I plug it in and turn on the mains in the back, I hear a short buzz/chirp.
It doesn't turn on by pressing the power button on the keyboard. To rule out the obvious, I tried the keyboard and mouse on my Color Classic. It works. So it's not a dead keyboard.
Next step is to identify if it's the logicboard or the analog board. Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the Macintosh TV basically a black LC 520 with a LC 550 board? Can I just get my hands on a LC 550 board and swap over the TV tuner card? Can I just take the analog board out of a 520 and use that? (If need be)
Another silly question, can I put my Color Classic board in the Macintosh TV just to see if it powers on? They look very similar. Are the pin outs the same? I just want to see if I can use that board to figure out if it's the analog board that's dead, but I don't want to put my Color Classic board in the Macintosh TV if it's not pin-compatible and risk killing it.
