    2. Mac II, Quadra & Centris

      Just think, having a Quadra 950 in 1992 would be like having a Mac Pro today… except with more slots, more expandability, and on-board SCSI!

    • Fantastic! What a find!!! Love to see a video too. 
    • Alright, I’ve just finished replacing the 2 components on the board. The charred one, and the other identical one just in case it was dead too. 
      Unfortunately, it still seems to sad Mac a bit but not as often and it still won’t run off the battery. It also still won’t run off the hard drive either. 
      I’ve taken a picture of a few of the sad Macs it gives me to see if we can pinpoint the issue. There may be more but these are the ones I see every so often. I have reasons to believe that @techknight was correct about the Hybrid Board being the fault although I can’t see any visibly broken traces. Could there be traces on the other side? 
      Let me know what you guys think!
    • I’d be skeptical, too. This, however, is the real deal.   I’m working on a proper write-up on my Twiggy Mac and what I know of its history that I’ll hopefully post this afternoon or evening. In the meantime, here are a few more photos:
    • If you don’t have a battery in there turn it off and quickly turn on again. Usually it should chime though even with no good battery installed.
      As bibilit said remove the Egret, clean up the area and solder it back on. This has solved similar startup issues on several Colour Classics for me. On the CC there is a cap right next to the Egret that causes this trouble.
    • Can be the Egret chip Marcus, i have seen it goes bad a couple of times.   U29 (near the connectors)   Also, keep in mind a good battery is required to have video.
