    Powerbook 100

    The powerbook makes a regular chime but only when i hold the plug down. The ac adapter works but the ac port is cracked on the solder part under the board. I saw the question mark screen once and it was clear but not since.

    Powerbook 100

    Hello I just got a powerbook 100. It looks good and has a working screen The issue is the ac adapter port is loose and when i plug it in it makes a static noise with the sad mac sound. I got it to start up to a flashing disk since theres no hd but then back to static noises. Is that because the ac plug is loose? I scrubbed the boards down to. Thanks

    Macintosh Portable lines on screen

    You can either rip out the screen, recap it or just use it like that. It looks good even with lines on it.
  5. You try it without the ram card in and is the gray interconnect? cable in right?

    Powerbook 145b1 again

    I finally got the powerbook 145b to turn on without the sadmac. I was about to throw it out. For some reason I removed the ram card that was attached to the motherboard? And it only turned on with it removed. The display is the issue now. The lcd cable is ripped a little and the screen contrast adjusts but no image at all. I didnt see anything leaked from the screen but I dont know if replacing the screen would fix it or if its something more? Also i heard the simpsons yelling about vietnam or something when it logs in. Is that afterdark? Thank you

    Powerbook 145b

    The hard drive doesnt sound bad. The ac adapter is putting out the exact voltage required. I tried pushing reset and the interupt button but it keeps doing the same thing. Also i can only see the checkerboard screen after adjusting the contrast
