Hello there! Someone recently asked me a question about how to fix the HDD's so it got me in the mood to take out my Macs....Its been a while since I used them but less than a year ago. Upon testing them so far they all work but one Macintosh LC ii gives me the chimes of death right away when starting it up. It worked fine last time I used it, they are always stored in a temperature controlled room and all caps have been replaced on all my machines. I took out the memory, video memory, and everything else but the PSU to see, one at a time, and still always gave chimes of death. Any ideas where to start to look for potential issues? Any help is appreciated. Thank you for your assistance.
I was trying out different SCSI configurations for an external HD when I noticed my LC III started giving the chimes of death immediately after startup. I can't see anything on the monitor, possibly because it is using an adapter, so I can't tell what specific error is occurring. I tried disconnecting all of the external cables except for power, removed the hard drive and extra RAM stick (tried disconnecting the floppy drive too but it's in fairly tight) but the issue still persists. Any idea as to what's causing the issue or why it came on so suddenly? I'm fairly sure the board was recapped during its lifetime before I received it, but is there a way to know for sure if something like that is the culprit?
