Classic II- No start up

Recommended Posts

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: IMG_0605 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. IMG_0606 I'm aware it's a horrible picture but at the moment it's the best I have.


So I remembered a spare Classic I board, and tried it in place of the II board. It turned on to this: IMG_0604 Partial success! So the analog board is good, and the logic board is not.


So, aside from replacing the logic board, which is likely going to have to happen, what could I do?
