Aha. I see. You never seen a Symbolics (monitor) from inside. These
console monitors are very special and very strange things. Mono screen,
some audio stuff in it, keyboard and mouse controller, ... and it is
connected to the machine with a single cable. They are completely
different from everything else on the world.

The symptom sounds like a broken solder point that broke some
termination of the console cable. I recommend to resolder the solder
points in the monitor before every other action is taken.
