Monitor on my Mac Plus works for a few minutes and then goes black

Recommended Posts

Hello, my Mac Plus was working perfectly fine until I opened and dissembled it. After that the computer will boot up fine but after a few minutes the screen goes black. Any ideas what I might have screwed up? Shortly before that I also saw some weird artifacts when booting up from a screen, black and white vertical stripes (pretty thick ones, about 1/10th of the monitor in width).

It doesn't look the machine crashes (which is what I'd expect from RAM problems). The screen just goes dark, as if you turned it off. I'm afraid I screwed up some cable or bumped into some component on the video board when I opened the machine. I'm not sure how to debug this.
