Recommended Posts

I have a SE/30 for over 10 years now without recapping it.Today I tried to boot it up but shows this picture.(it booted up once)I’m thinking to send it for recapping.

No flashing question mark?

You most likely have a broken trace under the caps near the power connector.

So definetly needs new caps and those traces checked.

I have recapped and cleaned the machine(including analog board) to a technician.I have sound now but still the machine does not see the hard disk.No icon at startup with hard disk plugged (as before),the usual disk when I unplugged the hard disk.

What can I do? To change cables,hard disk or what?

Suggested experiment:

 

Attach the drive's SCSI cable only. Power on the Mac SE/30. When the question-floppy icon appears, plug the power cable into your SCSI drive.

 

Report back what happens.

I tried with two other non-working hard drives I have(from LC's) and I've got the question-floppy icon which I think its usual.
