  1. Nope, it actually made it worse. I thought I killed the sound, but it's just barely audible if you put your head to the speaker hole. I think the chip is damaged, and removing it and cleaning made it worse. Because the only way it could have gotten worse after a recap was my cleaning, I cleaned the board in IPA and I guess it made the chip worse.
  2. Yes, I checked everything. I removed the chip, and checked every single trace on the chip area. The chip is soaking in some IPA right now, I'll put it back on in a few minutes. Guess the chip is bad? But wouldn't there be no sound at all if it were?
  3. No, it did not work. I did it over 15 times. Should I remove the chip to check for broken traces/clean under it? Or is it not worth it?
  4. Wow, didn't know that. So I just hold the keys and wait for something like 2 minutes? Since I can't really hear the sound. Or do I unplug everything except the logic board?
  5. No I did not, I had to do 10 reboots?
  6. I recapped my Macintosh LC, which after a wash before recapping, worked perfectly fine, aside from its speaker being a little bit quieter than one of my other LC II or LC 475. After the recap, it's sound is very very low, you can barely even hear it, even if you put your head close to the speaker. I cleaned around the sound chip many times with IPA, all traces look good. What happened? And what can I do to fix it? I was thinking of removing the chip with a hot air station to clean and check for broken traces under the sound chip, but I want to see what you guys have to say first. Thanks.
  7. Ohhhhhh, so that's why I couldn't find anything on recapping a 1xx series logic board. Thank you so much! I was going to open it up and write down the values, now I only have to recap it once!!! Thanks a lot.
  8. I bought a Powerbook 145b, and I know I need to recap the logic board, LCD and inverter board. I found a site for the LCD and inverter board (http://kalleboo.com/retrotech/powerbook-145b/display-recap.html), but can't find anywhere the caps needed to recap one of these logic boards, because the 1xx use the same ones, right? Excluding the 150, 190 and 100, of course. I only want to have to open the Powerbook once in order to recap it, because it's in pretty good condition, does anyone have the part numbers needed to recap a logic board? Thank you.
  9. Are they out of stock in the 2 hours I didn't check? It says sold out on the website.
