    Power Mac 5500 picture problem

    Another thing to try is to decrease the brightness until the screen is just barely visible and see if things get better. If the clicking and distortions stop or decrease then then caps are suspect. Lowering the brightness lowers the stress on the analog board components.

    Yeah if you want, I already have a solid open model, it would just be modding it into a caddy bezel.

    AllMacs IIsi recap

    Goodness, Why didn't you just recap it yourself? I've gotten problem boards that people have sent them and while they're not awful a little bit of attention to detail goes a long way. A lot of Apple boards are like that where the pad serves as a connection to two traces and this can make recaps problematic.

    Quadra 840av - rotted traces

    I bought 3 840AV boards and so far have only been able to make one work, some boards will boot with bad caps but 840AV isn't one of them, 840AV needs good caps to boot. Many times, traces that look awful still have continuity, best to replace the caps and see what changes, then go after traces, and then if you still can't find anything go with the dishwasher.

    If your willing to send me your bezel I can model it, on the other hand, Tinkercad is pretty easy to use, you just have to have imagination. I can share my design to your tinkercad account and you can use it as a starting point.

    I put them both into cad so you can see the difference, his is the grey, mine is the green. His measures 170.5 x 60.5 which is one of the reasons why to doesn't fit: Mine measures 172 x 60.9 which is part of why it does fit, here they are superimposed on each other: NOTHING IS THE SAME BECAUSE I DIDN'T USE HIS DESIGN AS A STARTING POINT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Not pb3623 I didn't use that as a starting point and that is my point.

    Yeah, I mean if someone wants I can share it in tinkercad, which is what I use, and then they can edit it and turn it into a caddy bezel. It’s not very hard but for me my only two computers with caddy cds are 550 and 660av.

    Nope, I did not use that as a starting point. I did see though and I tried and it was WAY off. I got a syquest bezel off of eBay and mike’d that. It figures that I work hard, make muiltiple prototypes to adjust the length of the clips only to be accused of copying someone else’s untested/defective design.

    A caliper and some cad knowledge is all it takes.

    Used this to paint a 14" LCD to match my 700

    Once we’re 100% on the model we can order a run on a SLA printer so it won’t have any lines and then Home Depot sells a near perfect color matching spray paint! If somebody knows how to cast plastic that would be an option also.

    This really isn't ready but it's 90% perfect! I'm releasing it due to requests: 950bezel.stl

    Dove MacSnap restoration - broken pin

    Be careful with hot air, in the wrong hand you can overheat/delaminate the board.
