Torg Posted January 15, 2015 Report Share Posted January 15, 2015 OK - I have been going through a bunch of old stuff I have … and repacking some - tossing others and just trying to organize. I have an Apple Lisa .. and the last time I was dinking around with it (started it up) before I put it into storage the last time… I had a monitor problem. This is a small like 9" (guess) monitor (b/w old pre-mac basically). The OS is fine but the monitor is "rolling" or not coming into focus right. Like an old TV where it would show like 2-3 copies of the same image…? Anyhow only the one image is right… because I poked around at icons with the mouse and I figured that much out. ANYHOW - I am not IT techie… I don't know what this issue is really. Is it a bad monitor… a bad card/controller or something else? The Lisa is in great shape otherwise ( I got it from the original owner about 15 years ago). I have the external HD.. and printer that came with it as a set. My current idea is to rip the monitor out… and put in an LCD - and either mini mac hardware (running a flavor of linux) or even an iPad lol. Maybe something else… there is plenty of room in the box. But having seen some of these Lisa's go for 10's of thousands of $ on ebay from time to time - I had thought about possibly selling it at some point if it was fully operational. Anyhow - anyone have a clue as to where to start with this monitor issue? … or should I just remove it… and hack the box? -d ps. here is a Lisa… 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
