  1. Greetings, I'm new to all this but I just found a Macintosh Plus 1Mb in the dumpster at work. Took it home, blew the dust out, looked at the capacitors and none of them were bulging or busted. That was fine, everything looked almost perfect aside from the usual yellowing etc. So then I thought I'd see if it would power up. It only took a second but the screen never lit up (despite making that high pitched squealing that CRT's usually make); in that same instant the Flyback transformer ruptured (pictured) and let out a puff of smoke. I safely discharged the tube and put it away because I'm unsure how to proceed. I've searched here on the forms before posting this to get other opinions, it looks like there's a few options for FBTs because the ones alluded to in the '90s repair book aren't easy to find anymore. Since this happened, do you think the tube is still good? Should I replace that as well or just the caps on the analog board / the AB itself? If parts are swappable with later macs that's fine, I don't plan on using the actual logic board if that's not compatible. I'd like to do the BeagleBone X11 display project on this one to then emulate retro systems. Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks~
