    Color Classic Startup Troubleshooting

    Yes it’s obvious. The Egret is the chip next to the battery holder, capacitor and oscillator, the picture is blurry but i am pretty sure legs are corroded/contaminated as well.

    Assuming you have not replaced capacitors or cleaned the board, there is not much i can say. Battery is not required and connectors never troublesome.

    Mac LC and DB15 to VGA adapter problem...

    There is no vram onboard, the stick is required for early LCs. Still thinking something is not right on your Logic board. Have you replaced capacitors ?
  6. Yes not uncommon, had a Compaq Portable III for a while, and this unit had a similar plasma screen

    worked for me last time i used this method. can be an issue with the PC you are using (maybe a new Windows SW is not able to cope with it) maybe your USB drive is faulty...

    Macintosh LC TDK PSU troubleshooting

    Issue solved. The shunt regulator (HA17431P) was shorted. Working fine after replacement.

    RetrObrite for whitening. To be honest, this is a temporary fix, if casing if not too far gone (more orange than white) you can leave it alone or use baking soda mixed with water to remove major scratches and clean the surface.

    So far i have used this method in hundred boards, without any issue. Of course, you can clean afterwards with IPA, but for a test without removing any bad cap, you can have a try (the main goal is to get rid of any electrolyte shorting chips) Some have been throwing boards in a dishwasher also.
