  1. The IIci yes, it has been recapped.
  2. I am trying to figure out what might happened to my RasterOps/24 card. When I got this IIci it was working. Then, when using my External SCSI Zip drive the computer froze. Since then I wasn't able to boot the machine with the RasterOps card. It hanged on the grey screen. Today I got a second monitor and decided to hook up the RasterOps again. The computer/system recognizes the two monitors but it I move the mouse to the one with the RasterOps the mouse pointer gets stuck and won't move. I am really amazed with this. Did this happen to anyone?
  3. Hi guys. I have this Mac SE that was running fine. But its HD stopped like many others I had here due to time, if think. I put an replacement and started the system (as I usually do with all my Compact/Classic Macs) using my external SCSI Zip Drive using System 7.5.5 Started the formating of the HDD and at the end the System rebooted. I tried again with different softwares and the same happened. I fired it up today and used an System 6.0.8 disk and instead of resetting the mac, I got an error, Address Error.... Tried to format a floppy and the same happen. What would cause this, bad RAM? How can I test it? Cheers!
  4. Hi guys. I have a Mac IIsi board that is not working. It boots to the grey screen without the mouse pointer or making the boot chime. It does some rattle noise on the speaker though. It was this way even before removing all the capacitors, washing the board (let it dry for some days) and recapping it. Its PSU, memory and HD boots fine the other Mac IIsi I have here. Any hints? Thanks!
  5. Hi guys, This card came with an IIcx and I have no clue how to get it working (mostly about the DB9 pinout), if a control panel is needed or how can I attach a DB9 monitor to it. Here are some pictures: Thanks in advance.
  6. I have tried some extensions but none at all made the AoX work. Still in the pursuit.
  7. Have finished the recap. Removed the caps, washed the board, let it dry for two days, recaped the SMT and Axials. Now I have sound but with the RasterOps I still can't boot, same sad mac error 0000000F 00000033 And it was working...
  8. Yeah, will do this. But I am concerned about the RasterOPs card. Hope the recap fix all this.
  9. Hi Guys, I just got an Mac IIci. And I am running into a problem. Lets see if someone can help me. It was stored for many years as the son of the previous owner told me. I took a quick look inside and noticed one of the RAM sockets has the locks broken so it was loose. I used a small eraser (yes) and kept it in place. I will buy a socket to replace it. Also I noticed the computer has a RasterOps 24si card. So I plugged the monitor in it and started the computer. It loaded the OS from the harddrive but I notice there was no "chime" when the Mac booted. So, my previous experience with a Classic II working without sound = recap. I used it for a few moments, just to check some things then let it aside to do my other stuff. A few moments ago I decided to backup the harddrive so I connected my SCSI Zip drive and fired up the machine. It booted and when I returned with the disks, it was frozen. I restarted it and now the problems began. After the RasterOps Logo I got an grey screen. I waited, waited, waited, then restarted. The same happened for 4-5 times, when I decided to plug the monitor on the onboard video. There I saw a sadmac (forgot to get the code). (EDIT) Code is: 0000000F 00000033 I removed the RasterOps card (even it still shows its logo when powered up) and I got the system running again. Decided to try the RasterOps again and now I noticed another problem, the computer won't power up, like a failure on the power supply, it makes a sound like a relay was clicking but no power. Removing from the outlet for a few moments did the trick but again no system after the gray screen. Tried the RasterOPs on other slots but no luck. So I removed the RasterOps again and after a few tries (the power supply click - no power) I got the system and started the backup. I thought it was a coincidence the RasterOps not working just after I used the SCSI ZIP or it may already a problem on the Board so the RECAP and cleaning is a must? Or the card just died? And about the PSU? What I can do? Cheers. (EDIT 2): Noticed the PSU problem is gone if the external SCSI Cable isn't connected.
  10. I hope some of friends here on the forum have one and could share. I'm thinking about trying other 68k 16mhz extensions to check if it enables the card but I don't know any other ones.
  11. Hi all! I have a Mac SE with this board inside. It was a surprise to find it. But the original HD is gone. So, in order to get it working I need some sort of 68000 extension to enable it. Anyone have it? Or know where I can get one? Cheers!
  12. Hi all! I just got a beautiful Classic II! (ok I know I need to recap it as soon as possible) Turned it on and worked. But I opened it to do a quick checkup and probably I was the first person to do it. It had no marks inside at all, everything was in its perfect position. Just some dust but not that much. I looked at the mainboard and there is no sign of leakage but as soon as I return from my one week trip to Rio de Janeiro I will recap it. I just washed the board, let it dry for a couple of days and it is still working. But I noticed it doesn't do the chime startup sound. There is no sound at all. Even inside the system (7.0.1). I tried to check the volume using sound control panel but it gives an error message: Maybe a faulty IC? Or just recapping will do the job? And I have a question: I networked it with my Beige G3 Desktop running OS 9.2.2, using a simple printer cable via parallel localtalk and was able to receive some files from it. The question is: can I browse the web on Classic II using this setup, the G3 providing some sort of bridge between its ethernet and the localtalk? Thanks in advance.

    AOX DoubleTime 16 - Info needed

    Hi Guys, now I had time to use this Mac SE and noticed it is too slow. I ran speedometer 3.06 and just got the base score (1.00). With or without the AoX Card. May it need an extension to work? And why is the SE too slow? Cheers.
