The eagle-eyed amongst you may have spotted a Mac Classic II in the background of my Beginners Guide to Car Cameras Video.
Intended for an aborted project, it's a non-functioning model bought from eBay a couple of years ago.
Recently I decided that I wanted to own a fully functional Mac Classic - but after losing out on countless eBay auctions for working machines, I chose to instead take my faulty old machine down off the shelf and see if it could somehow be brought back to life.
The potential fix I found sounded much more like an old wives' tale than science and to attempt it I needed to throw out my preconceptions about electronics and do something completely counterintuitive....But did it work? Watch the video to see how I got on.
