    G4 Quicksilver wont turn on

    Agree. Actually thought about running it through the wash again but for longer, not just quick rinse. Plus I need to check for the solder joints as stated above by another member. I didn't see a lot of corrosion but there was what looked like mouse pee on the board (my cats loved the machine...

    Local network on Quadra 900

    This is what I do to transfer files from one Mac to another and onto PC's. If your house has a network this should work as long as each computer is connected to the net via ethernet cables. System 7.1 through OS 9.2.2 is needed to work, as well as your apple control panels like AppleTalk and...

    G4 Quicksilver wont turn on

    Thank you so much for your assistance! This is my first quicksilver in my collection, this style Macintosh case is my favorite starting with the G3 towers. I actually put the logicboard through the dishwasher yesterday as I thought what you just said that there was still gunk left somewhere...

    G3 AIO Molar Macs wont start

    Thank you so much. I do need to get some 90 percent as I currently have 70 percent. By the way I did feel it was the processor or surrounding area, as I took everything out and tired each individual component out into a good motherboard. All but the processor as I was afraid of harming a good...

    G3 AIO Molar Macs wont start

    Well I believe you might be onto something as I re-sat everything including the processor and the machine that didnt produce any noise made a bong noise out of both speakers. I know that monitor works as I took the working logic board caddy out of one and tired in the other. I still suspect the...

    G4 MDD not booting

    Have you tried a different ram simm? I'm working on a G3 which had ram and gave a bong but would not boot. Turned out it was bad ram causing the system to not boot. Try replacing the ram with a good stick.

    G3 AIO Molar Macs wont start

    Hmm...I too would have assumed that it would test all components before startup chime. I will try the resetting things with the processor and the cache dimm. I did read about the G3mobos having overclocking ability which I did locate and appears to have been left alone but it could as well need...

    G3 AIO Molar Macs wont start

    I did swap them out to test the other machine. It too does work just there is an issue with the logic board. Kind think perhaps the processor went on it. Would it make a boot chime if the processor was bad?

    G3 AIO Molar Macs wont start

    Update: So I have been messing about with these machines. Found out that both machines actually do give a boot chime but faintly. I swapped the caddy's out between the machines just to try out different scenarios. In one machine the sound works and gives a boot chime but the other one does not...

Both will power on and display the green led and I can hear the fans spin up as well as the HDD's on both machines. I...

    Morning all. So recently dug out the Macs again and as always one gives issues. Another 476 is exhibiting the same exact symptoms as another LC 475 I have. They both start up give happy bong, then chimes of death. Both of them do the exact thing. Its always the 475's - 6's it seems like. Anyone...

    Greetings. Thank you all for help getting the Macintosh II up and running. I installed 8 megs of memory in it using 8 1mb simms, it had 2mb in it to begin with using all 8 simm holders.

    Hi there. Was wondering if anyone has heard of Macintosh speakers going bad. I have a G3 desktop Macintosh with the oblong speaker in that beige casing. Anyways turning the volume up makes it sound bad, almost like the voice coil is blown but I hear no rubbing from the speaker by manually moving...

    Greenish tinted screen Macintosh Centris 650

    Hello. Was wondering if anyone out there knew what would cause a Centris 650 to have a green tint to everything on the screen. Even the grey start up screen has a green tint; Like a light green, pea green tint. I tried it on a CRT monitor as well as an LCD monitor. Both yield the same results...
