    SE/30 Board Mystery Issue

    Bad caps can definitely be the cause of no sound, I had the same problem on a Mac SE/30 recently. Replacing caps C3 through to C7 fixed it. Console5 sells cap kits for the SE/30. Here's the cap kit for the logic board.

    Diagnosing a Classic Mac in a weird situation (Early Analog Board)

    There's prior art with this Mac SE & SE/30 version: https://github.com/dekuNukem/PicoRC/blob/master/mac_se_se30.md I'd imagine it'd require some pretty light changes to make it work with the Classic & Classic II

    Test Classic II logic board with SE analog ?

    The pinounts are quite different so you'd need to make a custom cable: Classic II pinouts https://old.pinouts.ru/Power/macclassicpower_pinout.shtml SE pinouts https://68kmla.org/bb/index.php?attachments/se-30-logic-board-pinouts-and-caps-png.33698/ Edit: Updated SE pinouts to the right ones

    Surprisingly some non-company backed open source projects do provide support, bluescsi being one of them. They have a troubleshooting guide which has this at the bottom if the guide doesn't help.

    Modern 30pin SIMM Brands?

    Thanks that's helpful. In my case the modern 4x4MB sticks I bought allow my SE/30 to boot but they weirdly show up as 24MB. I've gotten NOS 4x4MB sticks and they show up as the expected 16MB, so I'm pretty sure the modern ones are faulty (they don't work in my Quadra 700 at all, and that's got...

    Retro Recipes also tried this before with some decent results: If it makes any difference, I'm in NorCal, RetroRecipes is in SoCal. I haven't seen any follow ups from RR, but I'll be tracking how it goes over time. I only really did this out of sheer laziness, I honestly wouldn't be surprised...

    Anyone have an SE speaker?

    I only ended up with the MacEffects speaker because besides ripping one out of an old Mac 0.25@/63Ω speakers don't seem to exist anymore (searching for it just yields a bunch of forum posts of people asking where to find 0.25@/63Ω speakers). Also I bought the MacEffects speaker because I assumed...

    Anyone have an SE speaker?

    I purchased one of these speakers for my Mac Classic II recently which also usually has a 63Ω 0.25watt speaker. The speaker from Maceffects is rated 8Ω 0.25watts and I found the output volume more than loud enough.

    Ruby SE/30

    Its using whatever ROM came with the system (only got it yesterday). It came with what I thought was 4x1MB RAM sticks as well. I just pulled them out and tested them in my working Classic II and they're actually 4x2MB. Guess I've got some work to do on this SE/30, haha. Edit: looked at the...
