I am looking around for a color monitor that I can plug in, but I am not sure exactly what types of monitors I can use. The Apple manual says the video is NTSC, but can be modified (mine is) to suit European standard CCIR monitors (b/w or color). But to get PAL, you need special hardware.
So are there any suitable CCIR color monitors for Apple II+ available today?
And now, my second question. While experimenting I plugged my Apple video output into the composite video input of a LCD flat-TV. I did not get an image. Unfortunately I could not get an image even when switching back to my original monitor! It is possible that the video circuitry of the Apple has fried, perhaps due to lack of proper grounding of all apparatus (I know, it should be grounded, but the wall outlet is ungrounded!). The Apple beeps when powering up, and it reacts to key presses. My hope is that it is only the 2N3904 transistor that is damaged (and the TV seems fine, phew). Anyone with experience in this?
