SE/30 logic board foreign object?

Recommended Posts

After some serious inspection of the back of one of my SE/30 logic boards  I found the shown  object jammed between two pins of the UK6 Video ROM?

 

Can't be right surely?

That's a small surface mount capacitor shoved in. For what? I don't know, but if it works, I'd leave it.

Doesn’t look right to me; you can see glue on it from where it used to be glued to a board. It also doesn’t appear soldered in.

Yeah.. pull that out. I dont think its suppose to be there. I certainly never had a board with anything like that.

I cant see anything missing on the FDD and the computer had no HDD when I got it so It must have got jammed in there by sheer chance on a workbench.

 

I have now pulled it out with tweezers. :-)
