I purchased this lot just because it was a working IIfx which I've wanted for a while but they don't float by often enough. Turns out this included a second dead IIfx from a PRAM battery explosion. I was not prepared for how large the also-included SuperMac 19" Trinitron was, but I should have known better with how well it fits above the massive Mac II series I'll attempt to repair that one as well as generally re-cap both boards. Both machines included a SuperMac video card (different models) and a third SuperMac video card was included New-in-Box It came with 4 SCSI devices; cartridge-loading CD w cartriges, SyQuest 44MB with bag of cartridges, HDD, and unknown-yet spec DIGITAL Storage Expansion box And a bag full of cables, a second AEKII, and 4 more classic rectangular mice ...Also the guy threw in the DIGITAL (DEC) lappies in with the lot when I arrived. The working IIfx also has DEC software on it. So this guy must have worked for them More pics.... https://i.imgur.com/a3znTUv.jpg https://i.imgur.com/1VkmGvN.jpg
JDW posted a topic in Compact MacI had my SE/30 running for only about an hour today (to test my Xceed PDS video card with an external VGA 17" display) and I pulled the motherboard to take some photos of my ROMinator II Mega. My hand touched the top of the CPU and FPU and quite nearly got burned. It's rather surprising these chips don't need to be heat-sinked. They was a huge amount of heat coming off the board. Just holding my hand above the board I could feel the heat flow up. How hot are these chips allowed to get?
I just got my hands on a new IIfx upgrade board (not the one that just sold on eBay for 600, I actually lost that) from an old Apple dev I met on Facebook. The thing was pristine but of course I recapped it to eliminate variables, and after getting all the parts together it's not booting. Instead what happens is the power supply comes to life, and the two floppy drives start firing off like crazy and chirp wildly for a second. There's no boot chime or death march chord, and the speaker/psu/drives all worked fine when this was still just a IIx. Any suggestions? I'm getting desperate to get the thing working. I haven't found anyone else online with this issue and all the books including dead Mac scrolls couldn't give me anything either...
