Sometimes when I turn my se/30 on, I get these vertical bars and always no sound. After a few seconds, it starts normally. What's wrong?

Don't think thats unusual

I think that is pretty common, I have several "compact macs" and seems like they do that kind of thing every so often. A friend of mine has several as well and his do it too. I really don't know what it is, I just don't think it can be too bad, all of my macs that do it still work fine.

For a While

Well, my both of my SE's have done it since i got them about 1 1/2yrs ago, and it still works fine. My Friend's Classic II has been doing it for the past 2yrs that I know of and his is fine, He also has a few 512k macs and an Original 128k mac and they do it sometimes (He doesn't turn them on very often). I just booted my Classic II and it did not do it on startup, but if i remember it has done it in the past. As far as having the Macs themselves, I don't know how long, They are all 10+ Yrs old.
