I have been reading through threads but not managed to solve this "gremlin"
I have opened the iMac G4 and the CDRom opens the caddy when you press the manual eject button. Thus mechanism works. Also drive spins up when you insert media.
"eject cd" in Open Firmware does not work.
Just got hold of the following in full working order:
IIfx with Radius Thunder IV GX 1600
HP Deskjet 550c with AppleTalk
2 x Mac Video adapters 8/32 RevB
2 x Macintosh II adapters
2 Apple Color Monitors
1 Apple LC monitor
I have no issues with sending board to Germany.
Also I have an issue with my LCiii which was recapped but does not want to startup. Maybe you can spot something which needs recapping/repairing and we can fix both boards. Images attached.
please quote (or PM me)
Glimpse of the board...seems someone has done some work on it....not sure if it qualifies...
I am interested in sending it out to someone who can clean/repair it.
Only if it ends up cheaper then sourcing a new board....
