hi all im new here
i recently dug out my apple //c and wanted to feel that nostalgic rush. the //c is not working however. here is what happens.
when i flip the power switch there is garbage on the screen. i try pressing the white apple key,control, and reset keys and it seems to make the image change in very minor ways. turning the power off then on again sometimes changes the screen where all the characters are jittering. see it in the attachment
when i flip the power switch there is no beeping. i know there supposed to be one beep at least. also the power light stays on, but the disk access light does not light up at all like its supposed to; just as well, the internal disk drive does not spin on startup and there is no disk in the drive.
there are no peripherals connected to the computer: only the PSU and the composite video cable (not 15 pin connector) are plugged in. also i the video cable plugs into my HDTV
i have tried opening the computer and reseating the 4 chips that can be removed but the exact same problem exists. please help!
