I have a IIci that powers up, in so far as it than fan is on and the little green light in front comes on. It doesn't chime.
I replaced the PRAM battery. I tried it with just 4 sticks of RAM, no NuBus cards and the cache card. The same.
My question is: is this simply a board that needs a recap or are there any visible signs of permanent damage?
There are signs of cap goo up by the sound chips in the upper left of the first picture.
Here are some two photos of the motherboard.
Thanks for your help
ok, good advice for sure but part of my question is the practical aspect—HOW is this best accomplished? i assume continuity checks with a meter, but is there a good guide or reference i should use, or do we all use schematics?
Way ahead of you guys, I have a silicone sheet for the occasion. This is also why I'm upgrading my soldering iron to something with a fine tip and controllable temperature. My current one has only one setting: hot as blazes, it's not at all suitable for this task.
