    Color Classic II mystic sound problems & no chime?

    I think you found the problem mst3K.  And, if not your chime problem, it will be a problem in the future.  I suggest you fix it. You can buy small insulated wire, and then solder a "bridge" between the two points on the board to make very sure you have a good connecting.  It might look a bit...

    Access latch on B&W needs an adjustment

    Hi....   My Blue & White G3 was completely dirty and filthy when I bought it.  I ended up taking everything apart to clean it and then put it back together.  That was maybe a month ago.  I have noticed that the access latch is kind of loose.  It seems like if I give the computer good shake...

    Have you installed a internal floppy in your Blue & White?

    Hello Gorgonops  & Cory.... My first thought was to install a internal Apple branded 1.44 floppy drive in that slot under the optical drive.  I see a ribbon cable and power connector swinging the breeze.  I believe the size of the ribbon cable and the size of power cable may need an adapter...

    Power Macintosh G3 Minitower Upgrades

    In the old days, before tie wraps, people used waxed string to bundle cables.  It is now a lost art.  The more cables to lace up, the more art.  I have take old audio equipment apart and found lovely lacing of cables inside where the end user would never have see. People who did this had pride...
