  1. It's Glider 4.06 (the latest 68k version.) I wasn't aware of Apple Personal Diagnostics, but the board looks like it might have cap goop on it still and it feels a little sticky in places. I guess I'll pull it and give it a good scrub with a toothbrush and 91% alcohol and see if it helps.
  2. I just tested it with headphones. Same thing-- some games have sound, some don't. With Glider in particular, it flashes the menu bar when you adjust the volume, as if the sound is muted. So it's acting like it's muted rather than playing no sound at all. I run the same version on an SE/30 and sound is fine. I wonder if the motherboard might have leftover cap goop on it, and if so, would dishwashing it or scrubbing it with alcohol help.
  3. Greetings, I have a color classic that is upgraded with an LC550 motherboard. My problem is that some of my games do not produce sound. The motherboard and analog board are fully recapped. Startup chime and alert sounds are loud and clear. Problem is, I think, that it's trying to output stereo when the CC only has mono audio. I can't change to mono in the sound control panel as it is greyed out. I think the computer thinks it's an LC550 and thus it's expecting to be able to make stereo sound. Is there any way I can force it to output mono audio? Games like Glider and Crystal Quest
  4. Update on my SE/30: I have replaced the ROM SIMM with a different one and replaced the RAM with different SIMMs too. Still no dice. As a last ditch effort, I have run it through the dishwasher again, this time with the upside facing the water spouts so it would clean more thoroughly. Fingers crossed this did it, but won't know till it dries. I did notice some dirty spots on the board before hand that are gone now. Also, I have tested the continuity on all the new caps to make sure that's good. I should also mention that my original ROM SIMM had three pins near the center that were
  5. I didn't do the cap job myself-- there's a local store here that primarily sells used video games and consoles, and they've got a guy on staff that is good at recapping old stuff. Asked him if he'd do my SE/30 and I had him do it. Went for tantalum caps as I'm told they are much better than electrolytics. I'm going to set it aside until I get the RAM and ROM I ordered, but I'm definitely open to potential fixes in the meantime! I've been wanting to get this thing working again for a long time but never got to pull it out of my attic till now. I last booted it over 10 years ago, and it was one
  6. Hello, I'm new to the forums. Been lurking for a while. Anyhow, I just pulled my SE/30 out of storage, got it recapped, washed the motherboard in my dishwasher, and I'm dealing with Simasimac. No chime, and horizontal stripes. A few times I've gotten a slow death chime. I can't see anything wrong with my motherboard at all -- I've tried reseating the ROM and RAM, and I've scrubbed a few spots on the board with 91% alcohol, and still no dice. Here is a photo of the board ( the upload to forum route didn't work for me.) BTW, the battery is new. https://imgur.com/a/VzRywq0 I'm new to
