    Macintosh Plus Chirping Noise

    I believe I’ve found the problem The wire harness that goes between the analog board and the logic board is finicky, whenever it is moved it causes many different symptoms. Examples being: 1. A weird distorted checker board 2. A line going horizontally across the screen 3. A line going vertically across the screen 4. A chirping noise 5. Repeatedly rebooting It’s friggin’ weird. Edit: I flipped the wire harness around and the Macintosh Plus seems to be fine, it boots up and doesn’t do anything weird. I will have to keep watching it to confirm though. I’ll feel pretty dumb if it was just the wire harness the whole time, but it seems to be fixed.

Anyway, the Quantum Grand Prix seems to have bad sectors and I’m figuring out how to ether fix or flag them. While working with the HDD what System should I work with? I tend to like System 6 but I’m thinking about possibly getting System 7, anyone have opinions to share? Haven’t posted in a while so I guess I’ll post now, how’s everyone doing? -Jack

    Well, I removed, cleaned, and reseated the RAM. It worked for a while but the problem came back, I’ll check the floppy port...

    Ahhh, the RAM is a good point. its been upgraded anyway so I’ll check it. If it’s not the problem I’ll check the floppy port.

    Well, while I was using the Macintosh there were no problems, at first, but problems soon started to occur (repeatedly restarting) lt has always happened but usually stops. in layman’s terms, I don’t know exactly what caused it.

    I’ve checked the dead Mac scrolls and I can’t find anything about this problem, any other sources I could use?

    It's A Macintosh Plus w/ 4MB of ram, I've made a partition that's exactly 2GB, I'll make it slightly smaller...

    Just to be clear, the hard drive info is: 2GB Quantum Grand Prix 50-Pin SCSI

    For some reason the drive copy’s some files, but not others. It seems to not copy system files but does copy non-system files.

    System Saver And Hard Drive Enclosure

    Alright, I’ll give it a shot. I should probably also mention that I’ve found bad blocks on the drive. I have been using Lido to format the drive and has been working pretty good, however when I try to reassign the bad blocks it fails to do so. I keep getting other error messages as well. I’ll post them soon.

    When I try to install 6.0.8 on my Quantum Grand Prix HD it gives me the error message: "There's a problem with the disk"Ehman HDD." Installation cannot continue. The disk "Ehman HDD" may not be a usable startup disk. (Error #-199)" I'm not sure what's wrong with it, suggestions?
