Mac IIci Won't Stay On (a long time)
Posted 22 November 2011 - 08:31 PM
2gb Quantum Grand Prix 7200rpm
Radius PrecisionColor Pro 24x
FWB JackHammer, currently connected to nothing
I had assumed that the problem was either the PRAM battery, or the PSU. So, when replacing the PRAM battery did nothing, I replaced the PSU with a known-good unit from a 7100, to make sure that I had sufficient VA. Neither seems to have done the trick.
In my case, it does take quite a while for the machine to decide to spontaneously power off. It's usually over an hour, which is about the time that I always think I've fixed the problem.
I don't see any obvious failed caps on the board, but I'm not an expert.

You should be fortunate your IIci lasted an hour. Mine was lucky to go 30 seconds before I sent the board off.

My IIx suffers from a similar issue, but it turns off much more quickly. Would you be willing to share the name of the MLA member who is recapping yours? I'd love to pay someone to recap my two boards.
