  1. Thanks James, I appreciate it. I don’t smell anything so I’m hoping to get a bit more time out of this SE/30 before having to replace the flyback. I’ll keep searching for a replacement though, wish me luck!
  2. Thanks! I'll see how it's running once I'm done with recapping it and keep my eyes peeled for a replacement parts-only SE/30 analog board.
  3. Thanks for the advice, yes I'll keep searching for a replacement but hoping I can get by for a while with the one that's in there. I watched JDW's video from beginning to end (super helpful!), I sent him a private message a few days ago but haven't heard back yet so I figured I'd post something in the forums. Thanks every for all your help, much appreciated!
  4. Hi everyone, I'm in the process of recapping the motherboard and analog board of my SE/30 and I've noticed that the "bracket" around the flyback is broken . I read somewhere that you can spot a bad flyback by running the computer in a completely dark room to see if any light or arcing can be seen from the flyback. I don't see anything when my SE/30 is running and all the lights are off. I've linked a couple pictures below, the first one is the computer running and the lights off (sorry for the blurriness but this was taken in complete darkness), the second is the computer off and t
  5. Thanks everyone for the excellent suggestions. Turns out techknight was correct. My machine has the RAM maxed out, and I guess every other boot it goes through a RAM check? I decided to wait and sure enough, almost a full 3 minutes later, the display lit up and continued the boot process. Still not sure why it sometimes does the RAM check and other times it just boots right away. I'm starting to wonder if maybe the RAM is flakey. Anyway I'm just glad I know what's going on now, and from now on whenever it decides to check the RAM I'll just wait patiently.
  6. Hi everyone, I have a strange problem that I can't figure out, I'm hoping someone can help! Every second time I turn on my Performa 6400 it doesn't boot. I hear the chime but the screen stays black, I then press the button on the back to turn it off and then press the keyboard power button to turn it on and it boots up successfully. But then the next time I shutdown and then try to start it again it doesn't boot and just sits on a blank screen until I power down and power up again. Does anyone know why this pattern occurs and more importantly how to fix it so it'll boot every time inst
  7. Thanks! I'll make sure to connect powered speakers. Btw I searched through a bunch of old boxes and found the manual and sure enough the info is there - it states that you should connect powered speakers..
  8. I accidentally posted this in the wrong forum but I couldn't figure out how to delete it there. Sorry! Does anyone know if you're supposed to connect passive or amplified speakers to a Performa 6400? I heard that the built in subwoofer acts as a regular speaker but switches to a dedicated sub after you connect speakers to the system. Just want to make sure I connect the intended type of speakers (passive or amplified). Thanks in advance for your help!
