    Macintosh color classic won't power on

    color classic work fine without pram batteries, if yours have issues like that redo the capacitors and hurry as traces could be rotting away as you wait.

    IIvx not powering on.

    That will work, and again short term. If you use a blow dryer on bad caps you can get them to boot also, again its short term band aid.

    IIvx not powering on.

    My IIvx stopped powering up, the power supply in it works when put in my 7100 so that makes it a motherboard issue, now I need to try caps and go from there. Knowing it worked before i set it to the side leads me to believe mine is a caps issue.

    Yet Another 630 Thread (Power-Up Issues)

    also stray remote signals can turn it on, its just a sony power on signal. I can turn on all my macs and old school tvs at once if i am just right all at once.
  5. I would love to see if this works out and any gains once done.

    How to use Performa 630 TV tuner card?

    I do have it but I would have to burn you a copy i guess if you want it.

    Color Classic VGA Mod. the CORRECT way

    jet dry will cause no issue as its made to run off clean also. I dont use but a drop of detergent and wash it alone when I do it on bottom rack. Need as much heat and pressure and vertical to get that goo freed up and run off.

    Color Classic VGA Mod. the CORRECT way

    the motherboards need no change. the 550 and cc motherboards are interchangeable as the 550 motherboard is also the color classic II motherboard. Macintosh TV motherboards are weird, did you wash the whole board ? When I had my macintosh TV the motherboard needed alot of cleaning.

    Color Classic VGA Mod. the CORRECT way

    i meant the motherboard. The analog board must be cut short to fit in place.

    Color Classic VGA Mod. the CORRECT way

    the 550 and cc boards are directly interchangeable as the 550 was also the color classic II's board. no mods needed.

    Quadra 840AV battery desaster...

    power on. power off fast then on again. Its the same thing you do with the 6100 series with no battery. Not technically sure why it works but it does, either that or put a good batery in, but with danger of leakage and cost I do not put batteries in them.
  13. If the games you use dont use any virtual memory the 128 sticks wont change anything, if you do then yes it would. Performance will go up if the game writes to the hard drive less. Everything else seems like your as good as that machine will allow.

    Quadra 840AV battery desaster...

    without battery i found my 840av needs the same kind of double tap as the 6100 to start up.
  15. Beige G3's like good pram batteries and have boot issues without. Also the VRM is an issue with strange boots also. I had to boot from CD and restart from hard drive every time I unplugged mine and plugged it back in since I dont run with batteries in them anymore.
