Yes, but it's very rare for an electronic failure to do cosmetic damage
to the machine. So even if you do wipe out some irreplacable part during
testing, you _still_ have the machine as a 'non-functioning display

This is not a reason for being careless, but you really have very little
to lose by carefully trying to get things going.
