  1. I dark green on the pins of a few chips behind the serial ports, as well as blue/green on the chip directly next to the internal floppy port. Actually, I just looked at it, many random chips appear to have the corrosion. None on the on board RAM though.
  2. Well, after a through cleaning/drying to see if I can get it to boot temporarily it still does the same. I'm thinking even if I replace the capacitors that it will still be dead because of the corrosion on some chips. So... anyone have a spare Classic II logic board?
  3. I picked up a Classic II yesterday for $3 at a church rummage sale. Today I finally got the chance to power it on and check it out. Unfortunately I was greeted with this: Upon flipping the switch I *usually* get this screen. Otherwise I get nothing. The screen is cramped and completely blank. No bong or any response from the KB/mouse. So I opened it up and saw some capacitor goo, expected, and some corrosion. I cleaned up some of it with some alcohol and a q-tip. I tried it again, but to no avail. Here's a picture of the worst corrosion. I'm aware it's a horrible picture but

    Elsie!

    Try flipping the power on, waiting a few seconds, then quickly toggling it off then on. If the PRAM is dead, then this usually puts enough juice in the system for the computer to boot.
  6. If that's what it sounds like, please try it, cause this theme is not cool.
  7. Bunsen: For someone who complains so much about people not searching and then making posts, you sure make a lot of useless posts.
  8. That's a really sucky tax rate. It's 6.25% here.
  9. I can't tell you how many times that's happened... It seems like in an interesting find, I hope it works for you!
  10. Just off the top of my head the first one sounds like a bad mobo.
  11. Tape adapters are easy to find, check walmart, target, etc. I just bought one about a month ago.
