Hi everyone. I recently pulled out my Macintosh Classic from the closet so I can play around with it. I acquired it on a eBay auction a couple of years ago. The Macintosh has a 500 mb hard drive with 4MB of RAM installed. The little machine runs great but lacks sound. No startup chime or anything but boots right into System 7.5 that I installed fresh less then an hour ago. I go into the Control Panel for sound and it still plays nothing even though the volume is on max. I've plugged in my external speaker and it makes very little sound. I've even tried out the Control Panel for sound as well with the speaker. I've read on here and, on other sites, that washing the motherboard can resolve problems with leaking capacitors and all that. My motherboard seemed really clean but I still went ahead and gave it a little bath and let it dry for about 24 hours. I plug it in and I'm back to square one. I know that this problem has been talked about on here and other places on the internet but I want to know any other solutions other then recapping(if possible). I have no experience with soldering and all that and don't know any LOCAL places where I can get my motherboard recapped. All those services like MacCaps seem great but I'd prefer a local repair shop or something if thats the worst case scenario. Any tips will be appreciated! Thanks!
Hi folks... My Color Classic has had the LB and analog board re caped. It worked perfect. I packed it well, double boxed it and sent it in my shipping container from the USA to Ecuador. I unpacked it a few days ago. It looked just fine. I hooked it up and plugged it in, and turned it on. The screen looks like it has no power applied to it. It never changes color. The green light comes on in the CC when I boot. I do not hear any chimes or any sounds at all. I removed the analog board and plugged it back in again in case it was loose. Same issue. I will take it apart, yet again, to see what is wrong. Any thoughts on what I might look for? Suggestions welcome. Thanks in advance. mraroid Ibarra Ecuador
I have just recapped the LC II. After a recap, it worked correctly -- it had a steady picture, it chimed and it booted off the SCSI CD-ROM into System 7.5. Then I installed the Asante network card, which was originally installed, and it stopped to chime, but it boots and works correctly. Removing the card did nothing. Also the board was throughly cleaned twice, so there is no cap leak residue. I discovered that it actually chimes, but extremely quietly, if I put the speaker next to my ear, I can hear a faint chime sound. I also triple checked all my recap work, and found no problems. Also there is very very faint sound on the 3.5mm output. I believe that the audio amp IC is not working... or perhaps I missed something, any possible guesses?
