    Default Macintosh Plus : CRT goes black 10 mins after cold boot...help!

    My Mac Plus boots off cold and after about ten minutes the screen goes dead, it used to be fine if I gave it a tap on the side of the housing but today it just refused to come back on unless I let it cool back down, then the cycle repeats. Removing the cover and bending the board back and tapping it in a few spots gets it back for a moment but then goes back to black. any ideas would be appreciated!

    You can see the fault here:

    See the tumbleweeds...?

    This was once a great and glorious forum with hundreds of posts per day from many many active members... Then sadly the owner sold up, and Niche, the new owner, did everything except turn out the lights... hence now News updates for all of 2016, and barely any activity here whatsoever...

    Once this place started going to wrack and ruin, a couple of ex MacTalkers set up AppleTalk.com.au, and basically that's where we have migrated to.
