    Macintosh Plus reboot in a loop or vertical bars

    I had the same vertical bars so I thought I messed my plus up but when I turned the cut off down it booted so I dont know what thats about probably I have a crap cable

    Macintosh SE with horizontal lines, no chime

    Always start by re inserting the ram after cleaning each one with isopropyl alcohol. If that doesn't work try configuring the SE with 512k and check each ram stick by swaping them untill you get the machine working.

    Help screen shrinking mac plus

    So I have come across a problem with my macintosh plus and that over time the screen horizontally starts to shrink. I dont know what could cause this and im not home to do research. It might be the flyback but idk.

    Another problem that could cause this is that your 12 volt line is low and that to test this just unplug your floppy drive and see if it boots. If it does there are alot of forums about how to fix the problem online.

    I would turn down the voltage cut off and it should fix the problem which I think is a easy fix. Its good that its not your mother board I can assure you its not. I think the other AB just needs a recap and a little ajustment.

    Macintosh plus screen centering issue

    Ok so thats fixed but I still am haveing another problem I should have mentioned. The brightness knob does not work what so ever and there is no cracks in the solider, the sound issues, and the focus ajustment barely works either.

    Mac Plus Ticking Noise...

    I would first replace the 1000uf and 2200uf caps then check to see if your connector needs cleaning. If non of that works I would check the MB to see if your tsm chip has fried I have 2 boards with dead chips. I would also check to see if your flyback is good and if any other caps are cracked ot leaky. I have.had many macs that died during working on them. The mac plus I think is by far the worst and not fun either because they are so random even in perfect condition.

    Check the voltage pot i had that issue multiple times I would do a full recap after ajusting it to see if its your problem. You would want to turn it to the positive side a little it looks like your putting a little too much power into the MB
  10. So I purchased a macintosh plus to fix my other macintosh (Which finaly after 4 months I figured out that the 1000 uf capasitors tolerance made them off set and didnt work correctly and that the tsm chips on both of my MBs are dead) so this new mac has started to have issues with the screen and voltage settings. The screen started to move to the bottlem left of the crt and the voltage was tripping the power and I would have to constantly change the voltage pot. So I ended up replacing the 2200 and 1000 uf caps. It fixed the voltage but not the screen issues. Even trying the horrisontal setting and vertical it would not move the screen back to the center. Im pretty sure its the fly back or the 3uf cap in next to the horizontal setting. But I want to know if anyone else has had this issue. The boot sound also sometimes drifts away too. Its sometimes quiet then sometimes loud. I cant upload a pic at the moment becuse my service is bad right now.
  11. Awesome I found that both cr21 and cr20 are shorted. Thanks I'll get back to both of you when I get it working
  12. This sounds about right. But I don't know exactly, I checked all the other solutions and this is the best. I also just tested it and I am getting a resistance. Does that mean its good? I mean absolutely I'll do it any way because its just $5. I just want someone to confirm that CR5 is positively dead.
  13. Right, I'll try my best to get all caps. I really was not measuring resistance meter I was using this capasitence tester. I pulled out the cap and measured it.
  14. I did until I looked under the sticky pad. Well I re-flowed a lot of suspicious solider joints and nothing. So I still have no idea whats happening I also forgot to mention i did test the diodes and transistors by the flyback, they were all good. I also tested the optocoupler, it turned out good too.
