I have a apple II or II+. I have the applesoft roms in it and the auto monitor.
When i turn the computer on I get horizontal bars down the screen.
When i press the control reset it goes into applesoft with apple II displayed on the top.
That is with the Disk Drive card not installed.
When I install the Disk II Card with drive, it automatically looks for the a disk to boot.
I checked the roms and F8 is a auto monitor.
What could be wrong? Could it be the Q5 transistor? I read that in the serice manual but it
mentioned vertical lines and i am getting horizontal bars. Maybe bad memory?
I eventually want to replace Applesoft chips with original roms if anyone has spares haha.
I think my motherboard is a rev 3. I have the plus badge on the case, on the bottom case it
has the black sticker, with a warranty date on it and a serial number. Also has the normal
green and white sicker with three models on it with the first one checked.
Any clue on the bars at start up?
