  1. Unfortunately, caps are not supplied with an expiration date written all over them, they have probably failed already or on their last legs. the Classic is by far the easiest logic board to deal, with only a handfull of capacitors. You can clean the board to remove as much as goo as possible in the first place.
  2. All caps are bad by now, i will remove and replace anyway. Booting from ROM should be the solution. Can be a SCSI cable badly connected or corrupted system.

    Remove and replace capacitors on the Logic Board first, but also the ones on the Analog Board (plenty posts on this subject)

    Apple IIc blinking power light

    Hi, Keep in mind that the power supply is connected to the internal one : Not saying this is the issue, but as you have a blinking led some outputs are present...

    Audio and video problems with Macintosh Plus

    Checking Ram is easy, but you need another set to swap aound. A cheap Multimeter is all you need to check voltages. https://www.classic-computers.org.nz/blog/2015-05-14-mac-plus-checkerboard.htm

    Troubleshoot ram and voltage outputs first.

    Asian Macintosh PCI clones

    Dandu posted some pictures of the Pioneer one: https://www.journaldulapin.com/2018/09/24/pioneer-mpc-gx1/
  13. Removing the screen is not easy, a lot small clips and weak plastic. https://68kmla.org/forums/index.php?/topic/27661-tam-no-display/
  14. As Byrd said, same LCD found in the Powerbook 3400 or Kanga, direct swap.
  15. IIRC already seen casing with mixed up screws, don't remember any issue concerning thread or removal. IIRC the early ones had silver srews all around (128/512 Plus) while the late units have the brown/silver setup (SE/Classic) except for the CC that had all silver screws as well.
