Some months ago I discovered that my beloved Classic II is not working anymore.
Simptoms when I switch it on:
- sometimes it plays the startup chimes and sometimes not;
- then, sometimes it plays the chimes of death and sometimes not;
- then, invariably, it doesn't boot (no flashing question mark icon or whatsoever, neither);
- and finally, from the speaker comes a strange noise, like a falling bomb.
I recorded these noises (through my iBook's microphone) and put them on line. Here they are:
(switched on, chimes of death)
(repeatedly switched on, various noises)
I'd like to resurrect this old companion of mine. Any suggestion? Something to replace, perhaps? Do I have to perform the infamous dishwasher trick?
By the way: the battery is OK (just replaced); the RAM SIMMs are OK (tested with in the Colour Classic).
