    SOS Macintosh Iicx won't shut down.

    So I will try to swap the PSU from my IIci or Q700.

    Yes Astec PSU unfortunately...I have the same PSU to my Mac IIci.Can I try to exchange the PSU's and try the IIcx again?

    SOS Macintosh Iicx won't shut down.

    The board recapped by a friend who is professional.As for power switch I tried everything.Still nothing...
  6. I have a Macintosh IIcx just recapped but now it won't shut down.In fact I've managed to shut down once.Is it a common problem with Iicx machines or have a problem?

    Apple IIe and sound.

    Problem solved! The cable was detached...Thanks guys
  8. First time Apple IIe user and when I start it I don't hear the beep.Is it normally or not? Can I do something else to test the sound of the machine? The IIe has built-in speaker?

    Macintosh SE/30 and lines

    The seller does not wants to cooperate unfortunately.He blames that I open the machine first...I did it his favour and send him money with PayPal gift-unprotected.His answer is the following: "You didn't do me a favour paying by Gift, I insisted on it because I knew if it got damaged you would behave like this.My reputation on this site spans 10 yrs or longer without incident or people claiming I have sent them items not as described.I can tell you now, recapping that machine will not make it boot. The board was damaged in transit and you accepted that responsibility.Can you honestly explain to me how I took pictures of a working system fault free on my bench before I sent it to you !!!! I have the time stamps of the date the photos were taken too.One further reason I am not happy about is that you have stripped the machine right down and handled the board before reporting it as damaged, if you wanted me to share responsibility maybe you should have advised me first before stripping the machine down and handling the board.How do I know if the system was booting before you took the board out !!!! See it works both ways !!"
