I have had this system for years, but I never took time to see why it does not boot. Finally this weekend I took it apart to find that the inside condition is pretty bad/dirty. Note the rusty port connectors.
For a real Kaypro II lover this system is fixable and I do have a lot of diskettes, but I am going to file this computer as a parts/display unit, not worth attempting to fix. The disk drive chassis has rusty screws holding the drives in place. The PLA or adjoining IC's are fried me thinks. If I came upon another system it would be worth swapping out the PLA to see if that wakes it up, but the A drive may be bad too, and who knows what else.
New Pictures and some older ones.
