    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...

    JetPack for SE/30

    I just had an idea.  If someone can get the IIsi's NuBus adapter working in the SE/30, you could build a thing that goes on the back and holds the adapter as well as a Radius Rocket.  That would be one blisteringly fast SE/30. Also, you could call it a JetPack for added awesomeness.

    System 7 install LC 520 board in Color Classic

    If I try to install any version of System 7 on my newly LC520-ified CC, it says it isn't compatible.  I have tried custom install, and that just makes a mess by installing everything.

    SE/30 Symtom ID

    What symptoms are these?  Wierd. I am considering buying @Alex's SE/30 Board, and I am curious as to what the symptoms are.  BTW:  How many layers is the SE/30 board? Thanks

    List of Mouser part numbers for Color Classic Caps?

    I'm getting a CC, and it needs to be recapped.  What part numbers do I need.  There are so many options and I want ones that will actually fit, but I don't know much about choosing them. Thanks

    I got so lucky! 2011 MacBook Pro

    Someone fairly recently gave me a MacBook Pro 2011 15 inch with what was thought to be the dreaded GPU failure.  I helped them pull the hard drive, and they took it to get data off of it.  I took it home, and with a little testing determined that there was nothing wrong with it and it just...

    Woohoo! iBook G3 Clamshell Battery Rebuild Sucess!

    I just got a Clamshell with a completely dead battery.  I decided I wanted it to work, so I took apart a working, but used battery.  I transferred the cell pairs into the housing, and connected it all up again.  It isn't perfect, and the housing is held together with electrical tape, but boy...

    iBook G3 Clamshell

    Here goes!  I recently traded iBook G4s for an iBook G3 clamshell!  It works great, although the cosmetics are not the best! I also immediately recelled the battery, and so far, it's been running 3 hours on a charge! Thanks @jack for your time!

    iBook G3 cd rom drive wont stay closed

    I have an iBook G3 clamshell with a pop out cd drive that won't stay closed.  It works fine and reads cd's if you hold it or tape it shut, but it won't latch.  Can I have some help fixing it? If not, will anyone sell me a drive for really, really cheap?
