When I got it home, I powered it on, as you do, to see if an magic blue smoke escaped, all I got was vertical grey lines on the screen, and I thought "Capacitors, no problems", so I started the process of the stripping down the machine to start the restoration. When removing the logic board, I noticed some residue and it wasn't the gook kind. The I…See More
