I go to turn on my Plus today, and I get to hear this:
chirp, chirp, chirp, chirp, chirp, chirp, chirp, chirp, chirp, chirp, ...
No display, no bong, and sometimes the FDD starts checking the drive ad infinutum.
Turn it off, bring it to my workshop, open 'er up, check the cables, everything seems fine, plug 'er in, turn 'er on, and she boots to the Inquisitive Floppy Disk. OK, all is normal.
Back upstairs, plug everything (SCSI HD, Mouse, and Keyb) back in, and the problem returns.
Now I start different combo's of hardware:
Base Plus Only: Boots to ROM
+ and Keyb: Boots to ROM
+ and Mouse: Chirping
+ and Keyb, Mouse: Chirping
+ and SCSI (OFF) : Chirping or Boot to ROM
+ and SCSI (ON) : Chriping, Resetting constantly at 1Hz, or Boot to ROM with no disk detected (HDD activity light is ON, solid, not blinking)
+ and Everything : You get the idea...
I have not had the Plus running for a few days (was away at College Orientation) but prior it was working just fine.
When I DO get the plus to boot to ROM, the sides of the screen seem to waver slowly.
Based on all of this, I beginning to think either some cap failed or a voltage adjustment is needed. What do you guys think?
