    Identifying Cards in a II+

    Nice! Thank you for the fast response. I think you're right about the serial card. I didn't realize it was the one in slot 1, which is indeed rather short.
  2. I found an online listing with an Apple II+ with several cards I cannot easily identify. I was hoping someone here could shed some light on them. Looks like the thick cable may be a SCSI card based on a glimpse of the connector in the last picture.

    Mystery Ebay iBook...

    Most of the error messages are related to being unable to lookup hostnames or other DNS issues At the top it mentions not being able to contact 1.1.1.1, which is a new DNS server provided by Cloudflare, which suggests that this machine was set up recently. wpa_supplicant failed with some unknown error, likely because it couldn't find the desired wifi network (though this could also fail if the Airport card was missing or had other issues).

    As it says in the 2nd screenshot, it is running NetBSD. Interestingly enough it's also running mDNSResponder, which I was not aware ran on non-macOS/Windows systems.

    LC Fan and Speaker Clicking

    Yes, there is continuity between the aforementioned pins. I wouldn't be surprised if power isn't getting somewhere on the board, given the traces I had to bypass (the caps near the power connector were the worst), but I have tested continuity on those bridges, and have verified proper voltages in the HD power connector. You are certainly dedicated. I appreciate all of your help

    I don't think you would get the bong if the voltage was so low that you would have no video. On my Classic, I wouldn't get the bong below ~4.5V, but I still got (admittedly wavey) video. The floppy was also functional at that voltage.

    Nice eyes. That trace actually tested fine, though I should probably fix it up anyway. Unfortunately, fixing the first trace you noticed didn't seem to change anything. Is it possible that powering a machine on with missing caps or leaked elecrolyte bridging some traces could permanently ruin something on the board (some chip, mainly)? I wouldn't be surprised if that happened, particularly since I powered the machine on without noticing that one or two of the caps fell off.

    LC Fan and Speaker Clicking

    Without. I have tried toggling the power supply on and off to prevent any issues with not having a battery in, but I think I read that wasn't a LC I issue anyway. I can put one in, but in the past it has made no difference. Is there any way to know where that trace goes, or do I have to scrape off the top near the ROM to get a connection point?

    Which is the corroded trace in that image? The one right down the center, to the left of Y1? Pictures are here, as the uploader seems to be having issues. Thank you so much for your assistance.

    Just to clarify, this is an original LC, which doesn't appear to have "36064" (it instead has "34064") and has a 020. Pin 15 is immediately (or as quickly as I can get my probes on it) pegged at 5.08V, so at very least it doesn't seem to have the same issue that you mentioned. I wish I had a better method of reflowing, as there are quite a few bad joints that may be causing issues (see images).

    LC Fan and Speaker Clicking

    Did a dishwasher cycle (low heat, no soap) on both this LC board, and the new LC III one that came with my new PSU. After sitting in the oven at 170F for an hour to dry, both boards show no changes. The OP LC board does have corrosion on several of those 8 pin ICs, but I don't know how to solve that issue without removing the component completely (an exercise that will likely result in that component never being installed again). Would reflowing each of the pins manually help at all? If so, do you know which IC in particular controls the reset? I didn't buy spare caps, so I'm very tempted to just lift some of the new caps on the LC to install on the LC III, since it is at least chiming (but no other activity, other than a death chime if a RAM stick is installed).

    Tested the voltage on the new PSU. Everything seems to be within specifications. When plugged into the LC, at first the machine didn't do anything other than turn the fan on (solidly though, this time). After a few power cycles, I got a lot of static from the speaker, which appeared to be continuous, so likely not a garbled startup chime. While the speaker was making noise, the fan was running normally. I have not been able to get any signs of life from it since. I did notice that the floppy drive clicks once on startup, but I think that is normal. I will investigate my solder joints (this was my first time doing SMT caps), and maybe do a wash to see if that improves the situation.
  13. Ah, thank you. Sorry for throwing you off about the Debian mention, cat /etc/os-release had Debian info, and I wasn't aware that Ubuntu didn't change that. I just needed to change the enp0s3 reference (the VirtualBox's network interface) to the one that my VM had, which happened to be ens160. I'm using ESXi because I run a homelab based off of it 24/7, and didn't want to spin up VirtualBox just to host your VM. Thank you for your help.
  14. @mactjaap, what did you do to set up the tunnel and NAT? I am attempting to run your VirtualBox image on my ESXi (VMware) cluster, but am encountering some issues. The ESXi network interface ended up recognized as a different interface in Debian and wasn't connecting to anything, but that was easily resolved. Now I am attempting to figure out how you set up the NAT, but it doesn't appear you used iptables.

    I'm fairly certain it's not caps, as I just recapped mine (with the exception of the very large one, which supposedly doesn't go bad often). I have a broken LC III coming in with a supposedly good PSU, so hopefully I'll be able to shed some light in a few days.
