    Sad Mac Error Code '0000000E 0000FFFF' for Classic (now with pictures!)

    Seems that ram wasnt the issue as booting it up without the expansion didnt change anything. Im looking at where the TW connects and where the cpu would be theres this brown rectangular prism? Not sure if I should go ahead and detach the TW still

    If i can get the machine running without the Transwarp board, I'd be happy to sell it to you. My end goal is to just get the computer running and have it sit pretty in my room, so I have no particular attachment to the board.

    I'm not too sure if removing the AE board is possible though I would wager that it should be since it's been tacked on. I'll take a picture of where the two boards connect when I have a chance just to get some second opinions.

    Sad Mac Error Code '0000000E 0000FFFF' for Classic (now with pictures!)

    So I took a quick look online as to what RAM is accepted by my Macintosh classic and came across this website. It mentions that it has 1MB of memory soldered onto the motherboard already, so would booting the computer without the memory expansion board be a possible diagnostic step? If so, I'll try giving that a shot when I get home. I also didn't know what you meant by jumper until coming across that website, so I'll also take a look at it when I get home. I'll give all contacts some cleaning, but which chips do you mean when you say reseating?

    @techknight you mentioned checking out the read/write line from the CPU, but how would that work in this case in reference to the TW2325? Do I look at the chip on top of the TW2325 or below it?
  7. I posted this earlier right when 68kMLA was going through its certification renewal, so I'm making an educated guess that is why my pictures weren't uploading. I've copy and pasted the same text from the previous post but with relevant pictures. Hello once again 68kMLA! I've posted here about a year ago concerning a Macintosh Classic motherboard needing help, and the general consensus was to recap the board. However due to a lack of time (and money...and confidence...), I never really got around to doing what was needed for that motherboard. But never mind all of that. By chance, my friend was able to scoop up a Macintosh Classic from a recycling center against all odds, same model and everything. Opening it up, I was met with an interesting but, as far as I'm aware, good looking motherboard. It has a Applied Engineering board sitting on top of the motherboard with the tag TW2325 (shown in the first pic); looking it up here on this forum returns a TransWarp accelerator, but I'm not too sure of its function. Booting it up, I was met with a sad mac error code of "0000000E 0000FFFF". According to this, the 0000000E represents a failed data bus test, either a bad SIMM or data bus failure. After checking around online and this forum, I bought a new battery for the motherboard (1/2 AA 3.6V) and tried using the RAM from my previous Mac (although I can't say this test means anything ) and am still met with the same error. I feel like I'm super close to booting this up, but don't know where to go from here. I found a post here or there mentioning the same error code, but no particular solutions. Any advice for the situation?

    Leaky battery on a Macintosh Classic motherboard

    Thanks for the replies everyone! I tried a little bit of isopropyl with q-tips last night for general cleaning, but i'll definitely try some white vinegar when I have the time. EDIT: Just did a quick search and it seems that many people advise not using vinegar to clean and instead to use isopropyl. Would continuing to only use isopropyl be okay? @Bolle I don't think I see any traces damaged on the back, but here's a picture of the back if it helps at all (if a better picture is needed, let me know) Some quick extra questions: Any suggestions where I can buy new capacitors? Also, is a Macintosh Plus with original keyboard, mouse, Kensington system saver and Image Writer II Printer worth purchasing for $100?
  10. Hello 68kMLA! This is my first time posting in any kind of forum (unless you count Reddit), so please let me know if I'm doing anything wrong. I recently bought a Macintosh Classic for about $60 on eBay, and wanted to try and get it up and running. This is also one of my first times trying anything out like this, the only other experience I have is buying an IBM Model M No.1391401 and restoring it to working condition. I took out the motherboard hoping that only the capacitors were causing the problem, after reading that it's one of the most common problems, but I was met with a bigger problem, as the title of this post suggests. The battery holder is supposed to be there, but it seems that the battery acid corroded the area around it, causing the battery holder to fall out as well. The metal pins that are supposed to stick out from the holder is stuck inside the board, and a small capacitor that belongs to the Y1 slot near the corroded area has fallen off as well. I guess the advice I'm looking for is what's the best course of action to get this Classic working, if at all? Is it worth to try and get this motherboard fixed, or should I try and look for a new motherboard? Or perhaps am I overlooking other problems that may exist in the computer?
