First thing I would do is reseat all the qbus cards and ribbon cables. 
Something could have come loose just hauling it around. Make sure a 
mouse or something didn't get in there. Check the battery too and make 
sure it didn't leak on something.  I had one take out a console panel 
once. I just remove them and leave them out now.

Check the ribbon cables to the console panel too.
