I bought a Mega STE, but it gots a little bit damaged by Post/Shipping...
I powered it on but the screen leaves black ??!? nothing to see on the Screen/Monitor.

I Think it is not normal?
But i dont know do i need a Floppy for Boot or something like this? Because i dont have any Disks...

Hope someone can help me :)

Kind Regards

If it has a built-in RF modulator (I'm not sure if the Mega STE models do), you can try connecting it to a TV, and see if you can at least get an image that way.

The operating system is in ROM, so you do not need a boot disk, although it will look for a disk for quite a while (maybe 15-20 seconds) before it gives up and boots from the ROM.
