    Powerbook 170 issue

    I ended up swapping the logic board for new one and it works great now. Theres yellow ram chips or something on the old board does that mean it was upgraded?

    Powerbook 170 issue

    I just cleaned the boards and no more screen flashing but i keep getting the sad mac chime with the checkerboard screen. Why is it doing this even with the ram removed?

    Powerbook 170 issue

    I got a powerbook 170. The battery was so bad i had to open the computer to remove. The computer booted with sad mac chimes. I removed the ram card but had the same result. After 5 seconds the screen will flash like its trying to reset or something. What's wrong? No corrosion on the boards i just cleaned. Thanks

    Pb 3400c wont startup!!

    I just tried hooking to external monitor and disk mode nothing. It just starts up and the hd spins with nothing else. I know its not booting becuase no sound coming except boot sound. If i put the mac os 9.0 hard drive in another model what would you recomend? 1400, 5300, or g3 ? Thanks

    Pb 3400c wont startup!!

    I dont think its the backlight becuase the hard drive just hangs and no sound is coming except the startup sound. Even without the harddrive its still blank. I tried with lights and didnt see anything

    Powerbook keyboard problem

    I never knew there was a fuse. The problem was the gray cable on the interconnect board were the clock battery is. Also make sure the cable is fitting right when when you put the computer together.

    Powerbook keyboard problem

    What issues you having with it? Well i ordered a new screen for mine and replaced the inverter board. The thick gray cable was loose and needed be replaced. Also i cleaned the boards and took out the memory card. I already replaced the keyboard but same problem. Also that thick gray cable has to be bent a certain way or it wont boot at all i figured that out the other day.

    Powerbook keyboard problem

    My powerbook 145b is finally working but now the keyboard only recognizes some keys. I replaced the keyboard twice and reseated the connectors same problem. Sometimes the keys work and now they wont. Is it the keyboard or mabie logic board? Thanks

    Powerbook Duo 230 Advice

    I have a duo 210 and except for the stupid pink blotch on the screen that keeps getting bigger from dead pixels, the inside board looks brand new. They kept the pram battery away from the motherboard and there are barely any capacitors. One of the most reliable laptops Apple had.
