    There are different versions of ROMs. You have to look, which version you have. And the plus ROMs are split into two files (high and low). Here you can find two windows programs to split and compare roms. https://68kmla.org/bb/index.php?threads/software-for-roms.32011/

    chip Rom Mac Classic

    When the classic boots with another LB then your problem is the LB and not the AB. Did you wash the board, when you recapped it? The fluid of the caps must be removed. You can use a toothbrush and water with a little bit of soap. Then rinse the board with IPA and let it dry. I use an oven at...

    chip Rom Mac Classic

    Did you recap the logic board? Did you measure the voltages at the floppy port (5 & 12 volt)? Did you recap the analog board? Most often a recap solves problems with the classic. If the ROM is defect you can buy a battery bombed board and use that ROM. Or you can burn a new one...

    Macintosh SE system errors

    Voltages are ok, perhaps you could measure with an oszilloscop, if they are stable? But when you recapped the AB, they should be stable. Are there chips that are getting hot? Could be a temperature problem when the SE freezes after some time.

    Macintosh SE EEPROM to ROM adapter

    I do not know, if it helps, but in this thread (last post) there is another adapter (for one 27C010): https://forum.vcfed.org/index.php?threads/macintosh-se-broken-rom-low-chip.60566/ There are two 4.7kOhm Resistors used to connect the 5V to VPP, PGM and OE. I think that this is used in the...

    SE/30 infinite boot loop or rattling floppy drive(?)

    You should recap the Logic board (LB). The caps leak and may damage the LB. And remove the battery. The analog board and the power supply could also need a recap. The voltages are ok so far as the computer tries to boot. But you can check them at the floppy port. Should be 5 and 12 Volt. For...
