    Audio and video problems with Macintosh Plus

    I know this reply is late because I didn't the have time to do this. I skipped the RAM and voltage test and checked the solder joints on J4 and some were cracked. I re-soldered them, it didn't help, but upon seeing the checkerboard I heard screech, second time I powered on the mac there was no sound.

    Audio and video problems with Macintosh Plus

    I don't know how to do it, also I don't have the equipment...
  3. Today I powered on my Mac Plus and I heard really weak start up beep and there was this weird pattern on screen for a few seconds, then the missing disk screen showed up and it booted into a system as usual, except there was no sound. Second time I powered on the Mac there was no sound (not even quiet beep), also there wasn't any audio output from the audio jack on the back.

    Macintosh color classic won't power on

    Thank you very much! I just washed the logic board with alcohol and put it into mac and mac turned on.
  5. I bought the color classic, previous owner said that it's working but when I connected everything and pressed the soft power button on ADB keyboard, nothing happened (the switch on back was turned on). I found on the internet that I should let it attached to the power for a day, it didn't help. I pulled out the logic board and turned the switch at the back on and I heard fan and hard drive spinning. Any ideas how to fix it?
