    Ethernet on my CC

    My Color Classic is repaired, and I have loaded 7.1 on it with Update 3. Now I want to install either MacTCP or OT and setup the ethernet. I have an Asante MCLC Twisted Pair card installed. When I plug in a cable, it lights up. I have tried unsuccessfully to get this working. First I installed the Asante Ethernet Installer 5.2.9, that installed MacTCP 1.1.1, but it would not connect to my LocalTalk network via EtherTalk after that installation. Serial LocalTalk works fine. I searched the net a bit and found a walkthrough for installing ethernet in an SE/30 running 7.0.1 or 7.1. Using that guide, I installed the Network Software Installer, followed by MacTCP 2.0.6 and the patch to 2.1. Still, I cannot get any communication to work over ethernet. Does anyone have any advice for me? Did I mess things up when I installed the Asante stuff first before I installed the Network Software Installed and the MacTCP 2? Should I be using different versions of this stuff?

    CC (re-capped) Stopped Booting

    Hello all, The short version: The CC (re-capped) no longer boots. I seek guidance. The long version: I booted my Colour Classic earlier today after about 8 months of non-use and I ran into a series of issues. Let me start by saying that the CC has an LC 550 logic board. Both the logic board and the analogue board (integrated power supply) were fully recapped around two years ago (ceramics, tants, and electrolytics where necessary) with ONE exception. I had the wrong sized 330uf 400v, so had to resit the original (see photo). Nevertheless, the CC operated perfectly well after all that. Today is a different story. When I first booted the computer, I noticed that the screen was continually dimming and brightening, almost alongside the speed at which the hard drive was spinning. I initially thought there was an issue with the screen (flyback?). However, after rebooting twice and then trying a third time, the CC stopped booting altogether. When I flick the power switch, I hear the screen get a bit of juice, but soft power boot with the keyboard (tried multiple keyboards and different ADB ports) results in absolute silence - there's no indication whatsoever that a boot was attempted. So, now I'm wondering if it's a power issue. If so, what steps should I take to start discovering the culprit? Could it be that ONE remaining capacitor that needs changing (something I intend to do now anyway)? Might the fuse be blown as well? What's the rating on that? Thanks in advance.
  3. Hi everyone, decided to ask for help with repairing the colour classic analog board instead of using it for parts. The details: Fuse was blown on stock CC analog board. Board has been recapped, some new resistors and zener diodes replaced, blew new fuse when switched on. Logic board has been recapped and works inside of my LC575. DF2 is still original and hasn't been checked yet. Any ideas for what to look at?
  4. Hey folks. I remember reading about something similar to this some time ago. But I didn't pay that much attention to it as I wasn't really into CCs back then. Now I am though. I recently picked up a nice looking original CC. The seller advertised it as non working/for parts only and as it turns out, it boots up just fine. (apparently he had completely forgotten about soft power...) So that's good. What isn't though is this: NB: The flag in the top right section of the screen is supposed to be the French flag. Blue, White and Red. It's definitely not supposed to be green, white and blue. Interesting fact: when you give it a little whack on the side, the display becomes wavy for a couple of seconds then it goes back to the weird acid trip colours.... I know the last owner has been tinkering with its insides lately, so he could have messed things up a bit. But IIRC this problem can be caused by cold solder joints on the A/B or on the neck board PCB or simply by a completely shot CRT. That would suck. Or could it be just caps? I really doubt it though. Any clues to what I should look into first? Thanks in advance! Cheers, BGE
  5. Hi all, I'm trying to remove the analog board from my Colour Classic, so that I can send it off to have its caps replaced. I have all cables separated except for the thick red cable that connects the flyback transformer (I think that it is) to the CRT. I have only ever once removed this cable before - on my SE/30 - and it wasn't so difficult. I have read through the CRT guide in this manual and followed the procedure of pinch, push and twist. It's not coming out. Underneath the red cap I can see two pins. I am a tad apphrensive about using much force on the CRT proper. I also haven't discharged the CRT. There is conflicting advice as to whether this is necessary. The machine hasn't been turned on in at least a year. Is there anything different about the Colour Classic CRT ( aside that it's a colour Sony Trinitron ) in comparison to the usual B&W CRTs of the earlier compact macs? Thanks very much for any help that ye may have, aa

    Color Classic High-Res VGA mod

    Hi everyone, I have a working Color Classic, have installed an LC575 motherboard, and ResEdited the system file so the Color Classic boots ok. Everything works great. However, I want to modify the hardware so that I don't have to edit the system file in the future (it's nothing to ResEdit the system, I just like being able to do install the OS with no software mods). I also want 640x480 at the higher refresh rate. Question 1 re: High res VGA To do the 640x480 upgrade, I plan to use this http://colourclassicfaq.com/highres/. However, it does not appear to address the higher load on the capacitors, so I plan to do what this page suggests as well: https://68kmla.org/forums/index.php?%2Ftopic%2F24911-color-classic-vga-mod-questions%2F. Does anyone else have any other suggestions or pitfalls to avoid before I dive in? Question 2 re: system board mod If I understand correctly, removing R116 and replacing R109 with a 4.7K ohm resistor as per http://colourclassicfaq.com/mobo/mystic.shtmlmeans I won't have to resedit the system file anymore. Do I even need to do this mod if I do the High res VGA mod? Tks Quinn
