  1. So I'm not sure if this is the right place to put this since the monitor is technically a Mac accessory, but I use it with my SE, so here it goes. I have a Mobius branded legal page monitor that has sat in a storage unit for the past decade. I finally pulled it out and hooked it up, but all I got was was a small squiggle in the middle of the screen. I turned it off and then back on again and now the monitor seems to have a power issue. there's no smoke or flames or anything spectacular like that. It jut powers on and off when I flip the switch and makes a chirping sound every
  2. It seems pretty secure (in that it doesn't come off unless I take it off), but I do move it on occasion. So a few dots of hot glue sounds good for peace of mind if nothing else. Thanks again.
  3. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! That did work. Now I feel like bit of an idiot for overlooking something so obvious. However, that little bit did break off. Is that something I should be worried about? Could the anode come loose or cause damage? Or am I OK now, and can I finally sit back and enjoy my first (and favorite) Mac?
  4. So I might be SOL here, but I'm going to ask anyway (and hope for a miracle). In an attempt to replace the fan in my SE, I detached the anode from the CRT so I could work on the board. Everything went well. The new fan works. However, when I was reattaching the CRT, the tip from one of the prongs snapped off. I only tested the for a second to see if it might still work but only got a single dot in the middle of the screen. Obviously, I turned it off after that, and I'm not messing with it until I figure out a workable fix. My question is can I remove and replace the flyback transformer
  5. Never mind. I must have knocked the resisters I soldered loose when I was cleaning the flux off the board. That will teach me not to check my work!
  6. Update: First, Elemenoh, You were absolutely right!!! I managed to get some 682 and 204 resisters, soldered them in (lost one since I suck at micro soldering) recapped the board, and plugged it in. It powered on and booted, but no sound. So I checked continuity and found a broken trace between R2 and Q1. No problem. I bodged it, plugged it in, and BONG!!! I was very happy!! Then I rebooted and again no sound??? So I powered down and turned it off and back on again (I T Crowd stile) and still no sound. I'm ashamed to say that it took me several hours to notice that there wa
  7. Thank you! I wasn't sure because of the font, but after comparing it to the pictures of my board, I think you're right. I think I'm going to check with my local electronics store first, but thank you for the link. Now, one way or the other I'm getting my LC back!
  8. I have checked them out, but I've had some trouble identifying the product I need. I think the markings on the 582 indicate a value of 5.8 kΩ, however, the images on their site are unmarked. Also, they didn't seem to have any stock from the results that came up. I also checked out Mouser with no luck. As for seeking a donor board, I'm not sure what other boards might have the necessary.
  9. Thanks for pointing them out. I actually hadn't before, but from what I could see, they, unfortunately, don't have them.
  10. So sorry for the lack of update, but I've been looking for the replacement resisters for a while now with no luck. Does anyone know where I can find 582 and 204 surface mount resisters? The former seems to be the hardest to locate. My local electronics store has the 204s, but I'd prefer to get both at the same time if I can.
  11. A sad update First I wanted to say thank you so much to everyone who has tried to help me. However, I must regretfully report that this is not going to be a salvageable Macintosh after all. The corrosion to the analog board was far more severe than I had originally thought. Several components were loose, and many of the traces and pads are falling off the board. But the final nail came when I discovered a bent pin on the back of the CRT. In my clumsy attempt to bend it back into shape the tube cracked and a piece of glass broke off, rendering any potential repairs to the anal
  12. Thank you both for this. I'm going to go over the entire board now and see if I can't get this thing to finally work!
  13. The part number for the board is 630-0395. I Tried using the 630-0525 (220v international) as a reference since that's the most commonly documented, but it didn't work. This isn't the first time I've run into an issue like this, where all the documentation for an American computer is for the international version of it. Sometimes I'm lucky, and the two are somewhat interchangeable, and other times they're not. PSUs are particularly annoying that way. If possible, and just to check my work (since it's non-functional), is it possible anyone has a list of all the cap
  14. I'm attempting to recap my Mac Classic's analog board and seem to have lost track of what goes where. I'm not recapping the whole board just yet, only the ones that were obviously bulging or leaking for the moment as they're the ones that were the most obvious and problematic. I've managed to get most of them done, replacing one by one, but I got distracted and now I can't find the proper values for CP11 and CP31.
