Hello! I recently purchased a broken Color Classic off of eBay and it arrived in the mail a few days ago. The capacitors on the logic board are leaky and I ran the board through the dishwasher to get all of the goo off. After doing this, I managed to get the computer to work and I plan to recap the logic board in the next few weeks. However, the sound suddenly stopped working when I booted it up today and at first I thought that the volume was just turned down. After turning it up, there was still no boot chime or any audio of any sort. Then I realized that the Color Classic was producing sound, but it was so quiet that even the case fan in the computer overpowered it. Trying to narrow down the cause of the problem, I plugged headphones into the machine and powered it up, hoping for the best. I got a perfect boot chime at normal volume! This leads me to believe that the logic board is not the culprit, although I still plan to recap it since the capacitors were leaky. I have a suspicion that the analog board is causing the problem and that it needs a recap. Can someone confirm this before I order a bunch of capacitors and start the painstaking process of replacing all of the caps on the analog board? It would be great if someone could point out the capacitors on the analog board that deal with the audio so that I would only have to replace those. Also, if I am on the wrong track and the problem is something totally different, please let me know! Thanks! Alex
Is there a separate volume control for the audio port on the back? My internal speaker is not working and so I thought I would see if it is the audio chip or the traces or just the speaker connector, which is really loose in my machine. So I plugged my headphones in and booted up the Mac. "BOOOOOONNNNNNGGGGG!!!!!" The volume about killed my ear drum! As soon as it got booted up I went to control panel expecting the volume to be up to 11 (Spinal Tap!!!) but it was only on three. No matter where I set the volume it was the same. The only tim it was better, was when I turned it to 0, which muted the volume all together. So is this because my machine is not working correctly, or because there is another volume control for the audio jack, or is it normal behavior?
