    Mac IIci capacitor damage

    I had an SE30 that didn't work after a recap and did work after another washing. It also had a bad stick of RAM.

    PowerBook 150 - screens all destroyed?!

    I also have issues getting it to start up, but I don't have a good battery, so it has issues booting with AC as well. There is a DC DC board inside with two electrolytic through hole capacitors that just might be at fault - when I have time I'll replace them and report back. @Johnnya101 has a recapped DC-DC board, perhaps he can report as to whether or not that affected booting. I replaced his board caps, but not mine what can I say, it's hard to justify doing it for myself.

    SE/30 Recurring Freeze at Cold Boot

    Wow, you're a very curious fellow. Thanks for such a thorough investigation of this issue.

  5. Yeah, you know what lengths we'd go to to salvage a Mac IIx. If it's as bad as you say then it's possible it's not worth it.
  6. I can probably help you with this board if you need it. I just got a spare IIci from the junk shop, but I haven't had time to look at the logic board yet. I can replace caps and clean boards though, anyways.

    Thats awful. Stealing mail from porches is just horrific.
  8. I tried installing something called "Card Installer 2.3" and it had no effect. Running the program it installed resulted in a message saying that it could not find any Farallon Ethernet cards installed. If you happen to have a spare, known working card, I'd be happy to send you mine to test and see what it does.
  9. Try as I might I'm not finding anything so far. All I've found so far is that 8.5 has built in support for it.
  10. This is the card I have, in the machine:
  11. Alright, thanks. I should go back and see if that place has another one, as well. I think this machine uses a Comm 1 and not Comm 2 kind of card.
  12. Well, perhaps the card does not work. It certainly was present, and I've installed 8.5 like 3 times and 8.1 once. I don't like considering that it might not work because the card can be slightly expensive on eBay and I got this one for cheap at the junk shop which has a huge pile of assorted cards.
  13. How do I set up networking in Mac OS 8.5? I have a rather complex set up, but it works with my Windows computer. I have a modem, connected via ethernet to a router, connected via wifi to an extender, which provides an ethernet port: The only tool I have that I know how to use to test the network is Internet Exploder: Here are the control panel items I have available in this fresh install of Mac OS 8.5: Here are the settings I attempted to use. There was no "ethernet" setting, so I used the one called "PPP": The computer is a Performa 6230CD with a Comm Slot ethernet card, with the LAN cable plugged into the wifi extender. What do I do? How do I even start to poke around the network if all I have on the other end is an Asus router running Padavan Linux, a NAS, and a lot of Windows computers? My end goal is to connect to FTP servers from the Mac.

    He also said it has the sad Mac chime. Do you hear the hard drive spinning? There are two caps on the internal DC DC board that need replacing, but yes there are about 10 caps on the LCD board that likely need replaced. Do you have a multimeter? Can you verify your AC adapter is outputting the right voltage or close to it? If you need someone to replace the caps, I can do it for you for a price if you want.
