FOUND OUR PROBLEM!
thanks to reading the thread posted by @techknight I did some poking around and sure enough, L14 is completely missing! Gonna grab that off the other SE/30 board and see if I can get this one fired up.
im also missing c74 and r35 (though r35 looks like it was never there...
Yes it’s missing quite a few components. Not too worried about that.
After cleaning off most of the garbage the traces are actually not as bad as I expected. It’s still got a long way to go but it’s getting there. At the moment I actually have more hope for that board than the other one lol.
Got this one from Johnnya101. Had only a vertical line on the screen.
I snapped the connector on the red wire so I had to replace that... the rest was pretty straightforward. Just used a solder-sucker and got rid of the old stuff around the problem areas and re-soldered.
There isn’t much else to explain except that literally nothing happens when powered on. I know the analog board and crt are good because I tested it with another board.
Picture of the board can be seen below.
Where do I start? I’m sure even if the caps were bad it would do *something*
Not sure how I end up with such nice items for free. Some friends were getting rid of it and knew that I collected such things, but man I've been using it as my daily machine now!
Upgrade to 8gb and a nice SSD and it should last a few more years.
Only $40! Had all the goodies (box, plastic container for the watch, documentation, charger). Just needs a new display but is fully functional including force touch. Works just fine with a protective case to uhh.... keep it together.
This is part 2 of a haul from the same person. They have graciously donated these items to my collection free of charge.
The first two items were a PowerMac 7200/75 and a PowerMac g4. The second two items:
a powerbook 1400cs/166 with 48mb ram
and last east but certainly not least, a boxed...
10 iBook G3s with mid specs. Around $130. Someone could buy the lot and sell for $30 a piece no problem...
The powermac 7200 is untested and will probably live in the box for a while until I get a video adapter. Sadly the box is water damaged. The powermac g4 turns on but won’t boot my 9.2 10.2 or 10.4 discs.
I figured at some point I should make an official thread for this project I've been working on.
For the past month or so I have worked on writing a chat app that is cross platform for basically everything. I wanted to make something that would "just work" on all devices and still include some...
Does anyone have a copy of this or know where to find it? It's not on archive.org.
here is the directory listing: https://web.archive.org/web/20000817012936/http://www.realbasic.com:80/files/
the file itself should be at realbasic.com/files/LanguageReference.pdf but it just redirects to...
I am pondering creating my own chat app for old 68k macs. I've done many different chat apps before, for many different platforms. I've discovered Visual MacStandardBasic which appears to be the easiest way to create gui applications for 68k macs. I'm wondering if it has any networking...
