SE/30 Garbled screen

Recommended Posts

I bought an SE/30 which had the Simasimac symptoms, so I got the logic board recapped. The mac boots successfully now, however the screen has a strange flickering and garbled display. Any ideas what could be the culprit?

Could be caused by an intermittent connection of an address line on one of the video address muxes (chips UA8 to UD8)

I had this exact symptom on one of my SE/30s and it took me ages to find because all address lines buzzed out fine on the first two tries but it was open when I went through everything a third time.

 

Also could be one of those chips is on its way out.

Thank you @Bolle for your insight, I will try to check all the address lines. If one of them does have an intermittent connection, what's the appropriate fix?
