    Lm7833 would do the trick on the 5vsb line.

    LMAO what is that name?
  3. 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.
  8. 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.

    How to convert a folder or .dmg to raw .dsk file?

    I use hfvexplorer running in wine on my mac! Annoying I know
  10. Broken or disconnected video cable? Open it anyway to remove PRAM battery

    LC 575 board (in Color Classic) - funky vertical lines

    I just tin both pads, use tweezers to hold it in place while I solder one side, and then use my finger to push it into the solder on the other side as I heat it, and then reflow the other side. Just be quick so you don't burn your finger!

    Mac IIci NuBus Issues?

    Nevermined people! Thanks so much for your input tho. I just hadn't cleaned carefully enough. Cleaned around the NuBus chips, and It works fine!

    Mac IIci NuBus Issues?

    I put the rocket on a Quadra 650 logic board using the IIci psu and it was detected. In the IIci it doesn’t show up at all.
