Apple //e platinum displays junk on power up.

I recently aquired A Apple //e platinum . The case is in great condition no yellowing or scratches but I got A supprise. When you power it on it will not beep and junk is displayed on the screan and the keyboard will not respond but power light on keyboard and logicboard will come on. Could this be caused by A bad 65c02 processor or one of the Rom chips? I have A spair enhanced IIe logic board but I am not sure it will work with the extended platinum keyboard. Has aney one run across this problem before?

Hello ervin701,
yep, quite a lot poeple have seen such a problem....
in fact when any apple II or IIe locks up on boot "the kind" of garbage also might indicate the kind of trouble...
depending where the computer locks up it displays different kind of "garbage" - so -
taking a picture and uploading it to some place and posting here a link to the picture would be usefull for diagnostic...
that´s the reason Keatah replied with his question....
if the task of taking picture and posting link is completed -we can continue on this thread....
sincerely speedyG
