Hi there,

My A3010's graphic output is failing. I am just receiving a distorted signal. Tried a range of different monitors and the TV output and getting no joy.

I've dismantled the machine and found the battery has leaked and since dried. This doesn't seem to have a caused much damage in terms of where it has leaked, but there was also a lot of dust build-up around the circuit boards and chips.

Could something be shorting out the graphics processors? I've had a look at the VGA output and this appears well soldered in with no sign of damage.

I can upload a few pics to Flickr if it helps.

Any help on how to solve the issue would be massively appreciated.

Have you done a power on delete?
An SVGA CRT should give a display after a power on delete.
Many most LCD's require:
*con.sync 0
A TV will require *con. monitortype X
Finding what X is is left as a task for the reader.
