TAM with no video

I have a TAM that was working perfectly now it has no video. I have taken out the G3 card and put in the orig. cache card...nothing
I have replaced the memory...nothing
I have removed the ethernet card....nothing
I have booted from the CD...nothing
I know it is booting from the noise and after I give it sufficient time I can use the remote to turn on the tv and radio. Sound is fine but no video

Any ideas?

no video

Could it be that the video chip is toast??. My 6500/250 did that to me. It worked fine the last time I used it and when I went tp power it up the other day everything was fine except for no video.

It does have a cuda and I tried that. I also replaced the pram battery and zapped the pram...nothing.

That is what it is looking like.

Is this the TAM you just sold

Is this the TAM you just sold? Is the video card separate from the motherboard? If so, check that it is seated properly and that the display cable didn't come loose.
