I just bought a broken Sun Blade 100 on ebay for $20 (hooray local
pickup), and I want to see if I can fix it. When I boot it up with a
keyboard and display attached, the hard disk, fans, etc all receive
power, but the machine doesn't beep, and nothing is displayed to
video. The ebay auction just said "Doesn't POST, no beep".
The internal speaker does work - if I put the single stick of RAM in
the wrong slot, it will beep loudly.
I would have tried connecting to ttya, but my understanding is that
it should beep regardless, and I don't have a cable handy until this
I have tried replacing the battery on the mainboard, and
disconnecting the only PCI card I had, which was an LSI SCSI card.
Neither of these has made any noticeable difference.
Can anyone think of anything else to try?
