    Why are the images snipped out of the thread? It's a little hard to see what's meant here.

    iMac G3 Slotload 350MHz No power

    Hi all, I'm looking at a 350MHz iMac for a friend.  It doesn't power on when the button is pressed at all.  I can hear the high voltage come up for a second, and then slowly discharge when the button is pressed.  The Power LED doesn't come on, or even flash.  I don't hear the CRT degauss.  I do...

    Supermac Spectrum 24PDQ

    Does anyone have one with a more recent ROM or know where I can find one?  I have a card, but it has the original 1.0 rev ROM, and that really limits it's compatibility. Thanks!

    PowerBook 14x or 170, 180 Battery NiMH recell

    So I recently replaced the cells in my PowerBook 145B battery, and it works great, charges without a problem, and gets decent life.  The only issue is the fact that the battery monitor build into the OS is designed for NiCAD Cells, when I recelled with NiMH as you can't get NiCADs anymore.  Is...

    Best video card for 500 MHz Sawtooth?

    I'm looking for the best card with OS9 accelleration as well as 10.4 for my 500 MHz Sawtooth.  I use a DVI monitor, and it would be best if the card could output 1920x1200.  What are my options?  Probably not going to play too many games, and I don't have a preference between ATI or nVidia. Thanks!

    Powerbook 5300c Power Issue

    Hi, I was recently given a PowerBook 5300c.  I resoldered the power connector, but that didn't help.  The issue I'm having is that most of the time, when I plug it in, the sleep light comes on, and the power key does nothing.  I can't get it to boot.  I pulled the PRAM battery, but that didn't...

    Beige G3 Strange Issues

    I just got a beige G3, and It had a bad power supply.  I replaced it with the an ATX unit, and after cleaning the board with alcohol, it booted up.  However, now it won't boot.  It chimes with ram installed, but I don't get any video.  If I remove the RAM, I get a crash.  It doesn't seem to...

    Mac IIci NuBus Issues?

    I am having weird symptoms on my IIci I just recapped.  It works just fine except it doesn't seem to detect the NuBus card I am trying to install.  I am trying to install a Radius Rocket, which I know works, because I have used it in another system.  It doesn't show up in tattletech, and fails...

    SE/30 Serial Port Repair

    On my newly recapped SE/30, everything works great, with the exception of the serial ports.  Completely dead.  I tried a looper cable and it didn't work. What should I try first. Thanks!

    SE/30 Simisamac recovery

    Help! My new SE/30 is Simisamaced.  It has the vertical lines pattern.  I have removed all of the caps, and cleaned the board. My question is, what caps are needed to boot?  I want to start checking traces before I fix the caps.  I have pulled the video rom and ram and I get the same symptoms...

    How to mod an ATX PSU for 10 Pin Macintosh (for example IIsi, IIci, Quadra 700 and others)

    Here you go!  This is the schematic I used.  It was the same as the original but I had to use 1K resistors. IC Power connections are assumed. You need to connect 5v to the 5VSB line of your PSU.
