Classic II repairs.

Hi!

Any standard ADB keyboard and mouse will work.

AFAIK, CII schematics have never been seen in the public domain. Sad

Your problem sounds like a RAM seating issue. Open the CII and relocate every component that can be removed and reseated. You may even have bad RAM.

Good luck,

Stuart

...wishing I had seen this post BEFORE I replied to your other one, but anyway...

My classic II decided to stop working one day; you would turn it on, there was no startup chime, it sat there with this checkerboard pattern of grey and black rectangles, about 1"x2"... and did NOTHING ELSE PERIOD except for emit some high-picthed whine. I had tried all sorts of things, RAM re-seating, re-checking connections, etc etc etc, nothing worked. THen one day (6 months down the road from when it first crapped out) I was talking to my friend on the phone, who had just gotten an SE/30 (and from that point on, a war commenced between the both of us, CII vs SE/30..but thats another story XD )... and I explained to him what happened, I held the phone up to the speaker to show him what the high pitched noise sounded like.... and it just decided to start up like nothing had gone wrong in the first place o.O

So, from what I can tell, I guess Classic II's can be tempermental Blum 3 Definitely try re-seating the RAM though... a long handle torx T-15 will get the job done (Sears Hardware, or Home Depot has them), and then just a regular phillips when you're inside.

If you need better RAM simms, let me know, I have 30 pin chips for Africa here x.x;;; (May even have some 4 meg ones to max the CII's ram, if you haven't got them already)
