  1. Not gonna go into details here, but there were some rather unfortunate things that happened in relation to people not getting stuff back. Definitly connect to another monitor.
  2. Uni isn't availible for repairs anymore, so not sure what you are going to do. You might want to take apart the monitor and see if the fuse is blown or anything looks burnt. As far as the machine goes, you might want to see what It looks like on another working monitor and see if it gives a sad mac code.

    Farallon EtherMac Adapter

    The adapter I have had a serial connector, not scsi. It plugged into the LocalTalk printer port, and bridged AppleTalk over Ethernet to AppleTalk over LocalTalk. Now, if configured corrrctly, this adapter will do the same. It does need drivers, but should be much faster than what I have. Thanks

  7. I wouldn’t. You are eliminating the bleeder resistor if you do that.

    Beige G3 Strange Issues

    Yep, I have it sit correctly. I haven't let it sit more than like 30 secs tho. Will give it a try.
  12. I just got a beige G3, and It had a bad power supply. I replaced it with the an ATX unit, and after cleaning the board with alcohol, it booted up. However, now it won't boot. It chimes with ram installed, but I don't get any video. If I remove the RAM, I get a crash. It doesn't seem to PRAM reset, and it has a fairly good battery in it. The CUDA Reset button doesn't help either. I have cleaned all the boards a few times now.
