    Macintosh color classic won't power on

    Did you try to power the CC up without the mainboard and pushing the mainboard into the slot then? Sometimes it works.

    Error 01FA00

    I think, that the disk is defect. It is not possible to write a 800kb disk with modern computers, you need another Mac like a SE or SE/30 to do this. There are some tutorials in the net, but you need a Mac with a superdrive or an external 800 KB drive to do this task. Was the floppy drive cleaned and lubricated? Sometimes cleaning the reading head with alcohol (isopropyl) solves some reading problems. I think, that the plus can read disks from OS 1.1 up to OS 6.0.8. What is the OS on your disk? Where are you from? Perhaps someone can send you a working disk? I can produce disks from OS 0.97 up to OS 7. But I am from germany. But also with a working boot disk you will have the problem to get software to your computer. Even for a serial communication, which can be a solution, you must have a programmdisk for your plus. When I came into this problem I bought a SE/30 with networkcard and an external 800kb disk drive. I can download software with my windows PC from the internet, put it in my own webserver with only standard html und download it from there with my SE/30 and Internet Explorer 3. This worked for me.

    Macintosh Plus White bars issue

    - Check the connector to the screen on the analog board. The solder is often cracked. Resolder the connector. Sometime the same happens to the board on the tube. - Give the side of the case with the analog board a little clap with your hand. Perhaps the screen will work then. Sometimes this works when the solder points are cracked. - Resolder the flyback. - Could be a problem with the RAM.

    SCSI2SD external cable type?

    As far as I know, there is not a printable design available. I only know the universal mount for intern installation. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3067337

    SCSI2SD external cable type?

    The micro usb is accessible, but I do not use it. The scsi2sd uses the power from the dsub cable. This works with most compact macs, but not with the mac plus. The enclosure was 3D printed with my own printer (Anet A8, 130 Dollar). You can get the stl-file from thingiverse.com.

    SCSI2SD external cable type?

    For my version 5 SCSI2SD I used the configuration shown in the pictures. Adapter: http://amigakit.amiga.store/product_info.php?products_id=1290 The cable is a 25 dsub (male-male, pin to pin) Enclosure: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1131419

    Error 01FA00

    I think, that 01 means that the ROM test failled. The FA00 is meaningless. https://udcf.gla.ac.uk/~gwm1h/Error_Codes/Sad_Mac_Codes.html

    Mac Classic no boot

    Check the voltages at the floppy port. Must be 12, -12 and 5 V. Lower than 4.75V will result in a checkerboard screen. But if you recap the AB the voltages shoud be ok. Otherwise you have some other parts on the AB that shoud be replaced.

    Se/30 networking

    Fritz.box is the adress that I use to administrate my fritzbox in a browser. I use OS 7.5.3 and Open transport 1.1.2. Advanced Options (in german), look at the pictures.

    Se/30 networking

    Can you show your network settings? My SE/30 with 128MB and an asante network card works. But I had to use manual settings. Automatic IPs did not work. I connect my SE with an old hub (10Mbit) to my router.

    SE/30 not booting

    The multimeter must be set to the diode symbol. When you put the test leads together there will be a beep. If you put one test lead to the beginning and one to the end of the trace and you hear the beep, then there is continuity. At a rotten trace you will hear no beep. A small wire is ok.

    SE/30 not booting

    It is easy. Just check the continuity with a multimeter from start to end of the trace. For repair you can use a piece of cable. Solder it on the board. Sometimes schematics of the board can help a lot.

    SE/30 not booting

    It does not need the battery to boot.

    Replacement HD in SE/30?

    I use a 8 GB SD-card and installed 4 drives with 2 GB. The SCSI2SD was configured with windows 7 and the usb cable. Then I formated the drives with Lido 7 (partitioning). This worked for the SE, SE/30, Classic, Classic II. The Plus needs a special installation process that is described in the above link. Then you can get a bootable SCSI2SD for the Plus. An external enclosure that can be 3D printed can be found here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1131419 I use this with a 25pin Sub-d one to one cable. Some users descibe that they could configure a SCSI2SD as a ZIP drive (removable SD card!).
