I picked up a Macintosh TV locally. Turns on but it definitely needs a bit of work.

I reached out to Trag to see if he carries caps for the logic board and tuner card. I washed the board, but already some corrosion on a few of the chips near some caps. Seems to run okay, and sound is functional. Maybe a small bit quieter than my Frankenstein LC520/575.

What I need help with is the analog board. The display is very unstable and pops between different sizes. It definitely needs new capacitors. My questions:
1) is this analog board swapable with other LC Performa 5xx series systems?
2) Does anyone have a list of the capacitors needed for the Macintosh TV analog board?

The analog board should be interchangeable from another 5xx model as per this guys success story.


So many Mac to collect, so little shelf and/or storage space!

On the lookout for more Mac towers.

Good to know. I'm hoping someone will have a complete list of caps and I can repair the one I have. If not, at least it may be swappable from his story.

With all the smashed 5xx's, I am sure someone has a spare analog board lying around.
