One replacement chip after the other, my Apple II Europlus is coming closed and closer to live again.
Now I've got a perfectly booting APple II europlus + language RAM card
However as soon as I plug the Disk 2 card, the display just shows "APPLE II" at the top, and has small verticals lines in it (seems a siganl is interfering witht he sync)
If I connect a floppy (card on slot 6) it "taktaktaks" and motor spins, however nothing more happens. I've replaced two chips on that card for it to be accepted by the II, but now all chips (that i can check, so all the ttl) are ok
- What could be that thin lines problem ? It disappears if I remove the card (with or without disk connected it's the same)
- What is the expected boot process of the II euruplus with an empty floppy drive ? Is it normal it keeps seeking (red light) forever with just "apple II" written top center (and no prompt appears) ?
