  1. Fixed! I dumped the 4 ROMs and with a friend, I discovered that the 4 roms were swapped (U23 was wisplaced in U25).... The previous owner must have to swap or someone for him!!! That was incredible!
  2. Yeah i've desoldered U4 too. There is some troubleshooting manual to check signals, etc...? I really would like to make as many test as possible.
  3. Thanks for your suggestion! Today i removed 15 ICs, please check photos in the link.

  7. There are some tests I could make to be 100% sure? I really would like to fix this!
  8. Hi guys, last days i got for free a Macintosh Classic II that need restoration and fixing. I uploaded some pictures on imgur and as you can see the issue is the classic vertical bars. I read online that for similar issue need recapping. I cleaned the board with distilled water and some soap and let it dry, then i cleaned again with lot of IPA 99% and I recapped with THT capacitors (I didn't have the smd ones cap at time).
