    Has anyone heard anything about the ebay seller allmacs? He advertises a recapping service on ebay and he has a pretty good feedback rating.

    As far as capacitors go. I dont currently see any corrosion or leakage. Can they fail without leaking? Is there any danger in waiting to have them recapped?

    New member buys a macintosh se/30

    Hello. I recently purchased a Macintosh se/30 on ebay. I bought it from the original owner. She said it was in storage for 20 years. The original battery had not leaked or exploded. I dont see any capacitor leakage either. But the sound is not as loud as it should be. I even plugged headphones in the back and it didnt seem loud. Also the monitor is slightly distorted from left to right. The top is slightly tilted to the right. The width adjustment on thr analog board does not seem to have a set screw to adjust it. Do you think its related? Also, I bought a cheep usb floppy drive on amazon i can read the macs floppies. I thought i might try to get a floppy emu and the rom card they sell on the same website. That way i can emulate floppies and whole hard drives and load whatever i want on to the computer. Has anyone had success with this? Sorry if these are rookie questions. I dont have much experience witb vintage macs as me and this computer are about the same age.
