    SE/30 with cross inside floppy icon (not booting)

    Would a SWIM from a II work in the SE/30?

    SE/30 with cross inside floppy icon (not booting)

    I connected it with a bluescsi external unit yesterday, with a system 7.5.3 bootable image as scsi id 1 (and a few other images on different ids for different devices). This time i did not get the crossed floppy icon any more, but it just stayed on the gray screen with the mouse-pointer (which i...

    SE/30 with cross inside floppy icon (not booting)

    Thx cheesestraws. Your guess here is very likely 10 times more relevant than mine imho :) I'm quite the rookie when it comes to this. But yeah, even with the floppy disconnected it will give that cross (and it wont boot from either internal HDD or without internal connected but with external...

    SE/30 with cross inside floppy icon (not booting)

    No one here ever had issues where the screen showed an icon with a crossed out icon inside it?

    SE/30 with cross inside floppy icon (not booting)

    My SE/30 have given up its geist (hopefully it can be sorted) recently. It has been running for 3+ years, since it had a full mainboard recap. ~4 month ago, it stopped booting, telling me it had a bus error (from what i could find out, it was at the part in the boot-sequence when it tried to...

    SE/30 subject to analog board recap but decided not to...

    Small update. I swapped out the BMOW and swapped in the original SE/30 rom (and inserted 4x1mb ram instead of the 86 (something) i usually run with. Now the boot is different: - i get the chime - mouse works all the time - FDD tries to read the floppy - then it gets to the SCSI init-phase and...

    Recapped SE/30 - only the mouse pointer appears

    Hi macintosh2002, following (have the exact same issue with my se/30) (https://68kmla.org/bb/index.php?threads/se-30-subject-to-analog-board-recap-but-decided-not-to.46864/#post-524503)

    SE/30 subject to analog board recap but decided not to...

    Thx Callan. I checked it and it was snug. But i also found the issue. The P1 connection towards the analog board was not fully inserted ( :oops: ) and when ensuring that it was in fully, the image is now back to normal again :) But i still have the freeze up issue (where the mouse pointer will...

    SE/30 subject to analog board recap but decided not to...

    Hi, got it (and i appreciate the input :)). I'm quite sure that i did not damage anything (solder-wise) when taking it apart. What i'm not so sure about (but will find out tomorrow) is if i did not reinsert the "suction cup" thingy properly (or for that matter, the pcb connecting to the yoke on...

    SE/30 subject to analog board recap but decided not to...

    I guess this would qualify as some sort of sequel to a part #1 (here: https://68kmla.org/bb/index.php?threads/se-30-recap-with-lifted-pad.37469/#post-405579) To recap. I have owned this particular machine for a long time. ~4 years ago, i got the simasi pattern and did the full logic board...

    Asante Mac Con issues

    Hi moldy, yes, i can definitely confirm that the old daughter card works with the new PDS/main card, as does the new daughter card :) Oh, and super interesting that you mentioned having a 10-base-t in between - when i wrestled with this issue on the "old" card, i kept reading that it needed...

    Asante Mac Con issues

    Hi, to the responders above - i'm terribly sorry for my long delay in responding but i thank you for your replies earlier :) . During this time, i got hold of another Asante NIC that actually worked. But out of curiousity i tried to determine if it was the PDS card itself causing the issues or...

    SE/30 recap with lifted pad

    Hi PotShotScott and Elfen, I'm extremely glad to hear that it "only" affects the sound of the machine. Knowing this, i can always use a bodge-wire to connect them later on. Thanks also for the superb schematics.

    SE/30 recap with lifted pad

    Hi, My SE/30 started to show the "simasimac" lines last week. It displayed them for 6-8 minutes after which it gave the beep and started up normally. Reading about this told me that it was time for a re-cap. so i recapped my SE/30 today after receiving a recap-kit yesterday. It was somewhat...

    Asante Mac Con issues

    Hi fellow retro mac enthusiasts  :) Do you know if it is common (??) for a Asante MacCon to break/cease to function? I bought such a card from Italy quite some time ago, but have never been able to get it to work properly (on 6.0.8, 7.0.1, 7.1 and now 7.5.3 inside an SE/30). I think i have...
