Apple II+ No Video, yet Boot is OK

Hey guys,

Trying to get an Apple II+ working again and can't seem to figure out where to start.

The machine has a Language Card and Disk ][ Controller Card and nothing else.

Power up "beeps" OK and disk activity sounds good, appears to boot into DOS no problem.

Yet there is no video at all.

I am using Amdek Color-I monitor which I know works OK from another system.

I have tried removing both Cards and booting, yet still no video.

None of the chips on the main motherboard produce abnormal heat, and all chips/connections on the board appear clean visually.

Any suggestions on where to start?

David

Hello whynotpizza,

like in all such cases:
it's usefull to add a picture(s) of the mainboard.....
rather often simple problems can be detected by visual inspection....
