  1. re: the video, a lot ink has been spilled on how picky beige Mac's can be with LCD's, even with an adapter. Your Dell may simply not be compatible. I've been lucky with the Samsung SyncMaster 730B's I happen to have - I've often seen them (or similar models) at thrift shops for $5-10. I have what looks like the same switch-type adapters, with the switches 1, 2, 3, 4 turned on. Other folks will swear by the models they use, so check around here and on Google, you'll find more info. There may actually be a 'thread to end all threads' about this topic here... re: power, definitely che
  2. I'd also recommend Pina's 'Repair Secrets' (http://www.maccaps.com/MacCaps/Repair_books_files/Macintosh Repair and Upgrade Secrets.pdf) for a solid overview of the Plus, and includes good info on some of the typical adjustments / benchmarks to check for when troubleshooting a Plus AB. First thing, as Crutch says, is check voltages, and check if you can adjust +5V with the voltage pot. Sometimes after recapping you need to dial it down. This is also a decent resource: http://www.maccaps.com/MacCaps/DIY_Information_files/Classic Mac Repair Notes .pdf
  3. Strange! I can run Dark Castle on both my SE/30 and IIsi running 7.0.1...
  4. The usual replacement part for CR5 and CR1 is this one https://www.mouser.ca/ProductDetail/Vishay-General-Semiconductor/EGP51G-E3-C?qs=%2Fha2pyFadujcYTdXhGCQYso42sonLqjMPlByH43PYaA%2F7QQpIoSejQ%3D%3D That jagshouse link is for the SE/30 which has a different analog board than the 128k/512k/Plus.
  5. Did you try without the expansion card as well? This thread might be helpful:
  6. The SE's will have bleeder resistors, and the flyback is likely one of the 'newer' ones that bleed off. Honestly, it's not a big deal, no need to be daunted - we just wouldn't want someone launching in there and taking things apart while still plugged in or when things haven't sufficiently discharged. If you wait a bit (a couple hours, even less) after unplugging it, it's totally fine to handle. It sounds like you're the cautious type, so I think you'll be totally fine to open things up and take a look around. You can find out a lot with just your eyes and a multimeter. So go ahead and do it -
  7. According to this Deskthority wiki entry, there are technically three variants of the M0110A (or four, depending on how you want to count them): https://deskthority.net/wiki/Apple_M0110A Sadly there's no info about the capacitor values.
  8. It was U3. Now to find a long term solution to replacing Q10.........
  9. @solidpro Did you manage to resolve this issue? It sounds similar to mine...
  10. Congrats on the SE! From what you say, it is definitely something on the analog board, but I personally don't think it's caps. At least that's not where I'd look first. Beyond that however it's hard to say exactly what the issue is until you look inside.. It could be something as simple as a failed resistor (there's a 470k 1/2W at R22 that can be a culprit), it could be the flyback, it's possible it's the tube itself... So the first step would be to open the case and inspect the vinyl jacket for burn marks, which may get you looking in the right area, inspect the CRT, connections,
  11. I have Plus that is reading steady low voltage - 9.2V and 3.9V - and showing an odd pattern on the screen (see attached). General sequence of events, things to know: - AB was working fine, but caps were older so decided to recap - recapping resulted in flupping, swapped old caps back in but symptom didn't change (I didn't think to adjust the voltage pot, brain fart). New caps checked good, so put them back in - poking around the switching side of the board, I clumsily shorted something and blew Q10, awesome - after some additional testing, I replaced some open/bad resistors
  12. Thanks for the offer. I have access to a printer, and can model a foot if necessary. Was just wondering if there are ready-made equivalents out there I can buy off the shelf...
  13. I guess this is the right forum for this... I'm wondering if anyone has been able to find or reproduce the black rubber feet for the Portable case - about 2.5" long, 1" wide, and 0.6" high... I have a case missing two such feet.
