  1. I did the same last weekend, the connector tends to be a bit hidden out of sight, so it's easily overlooked. It depends, I'd say. Try and see how sturdily it's still attached, or if it's easily knocked out of place. If it stays in place relatively securely, I wouldn't worry too much unless the Mac is often transported. If it does fall off easily, then maybe glueing it down with something secure, but easy to remove, like silicone glue or hot glue, might be a good idea. A few dots should do, and it should be relatively easily removable if the anode needs to be taken off for servicing
  2. A dot in the middle of the screen usually means the deflection coil is not plugged into the analog board. Try fixing that first.
  3. I agree. It's also not the first time he's done this, either to other posters or the admins. While I'm guilty of the latter as well (which I still regret), it's even worse to do it to your fellow 68kMLA'ers, no matter how veteran or noob.
  4. It's U11. It's in the right upper corner (with the I/O ports pointing upwards), under C3. If C3 leaked, it's very likely the EGRET has gotten gunked up. EDIT: It's seen in your picture here, 341S0788:
  5. Do you have a way to hook a monitor up to it? If so, do this and see if you get an error code. I should note that the 6100 needs the battery to output video at a cold boot, without a battery you will need to reset the machine by either hitting the reset button or quickly power cycling it after the first boot chime, to get a video signal. So don't be alarmed if you get no display on a "normal" cold boot.
  6. For the logic board, you can use this IIvi guide. The IIvi, IIvx, and Performa 600 use identical boards, it's just that the IIvx's CPU runs at 32MHz on a 16MHz bus and has 32K of L2 cache, the Performa 600 retains the 32MHz CPU and 16MHz bus speed but has no L2 cache, and the IIvi runs at 16MHz for both the CPU and the bus, while also having no L2 cache. The only differences because of that are the presence of cache chips, and the speed of certain clock crystals and the 68030 itself. The capacitors and all other components should be the same.
  7. I've found 2000s HP switches to be fairly painless for vintage computer use. My €8 thrift find HP ProCurve 1800-24G, which is my main switch for all my computers, happily will talk with my old Macintoshes, be it my SE/30's PDS NIC, or the AAUI out of late 68ks and early PowerPCs. Never had to touch any setting on it to get it to work with that 10Mb/s stuff.
  8. A suitable USB PCI card might be a cheaper option though, in the case of the beige G3. An NEC Chipset-based card should work fine under OS 9 and up, maybe even OS 8.
  9. I personally didn't replace them, though it really depends on if the capacitor leakage got to them or not. UE8 is right under a cap, so it tends to be the culprit for issues as it takes the brunt of cap goop. There are schematics available here, it's the first download (se30schems.zip) on the page. There are Apple schematics, which are a bit hard to read and incomplete if I recall correctly, as well as BOMARC's. BOMARC schematics are third party, and I do believe they're known to have a few errors here and there (they were made by BOMARC by hand, rather than using Apple's own sche
  10. The UE8 is a 74LS166, I believe. It should be written on the IC as well. Just make sure you get the SMD version, it should be widely available at the usual electronics parts stores.
  11. The 040 cards were called the PowerPro, not Turbo. Apple also rebranded those as the Apple Power Macintosh Upgrade Card, though they only sold the variant that ran at a maximum of 66MHz. It was clock dubbled from whatever the 040 ran at, so only in machines like the Q800 would it run at the full speed. Which is why I moved mine from a Q700 to a Q800, besides the fact the 700's not currently working. The 601 is a QFP type IC. I'm not sure if any of the later QFP PowerPCs are pin compatible, but replacing one of those would be pretty dang difficult.
  12. I have had the same issue on one of my SE/30s. I ended up replacing UE8 which successfully brought back video. My UE8 did not have a lot of visible corrosion or cap leakage on it, so if the one on your board does, that IC is toast. Those 74s really don't like cap goo.
  13. Yeah, that should work. What terms are you Googling? "Daystar Turbo601" or even just "Turbo601" gives me several pages describing what Macs it works with.
  14. My "regular" LCs do not need batteries at all to function, this seems doubtful.
  15. If the board is an Apple II+, it might have been an upgrade the original owner had Apple or an aftermarket party do at some point. It wasn't uncommon for Apple IIs to get their boards upgraded to newer revisions like the IIe. I believe there was even a IIGS board upgrade for the more traditional II models. Are you sure it's 115V? The Eurocolor Card would seem to imply it was from a PAL country, the majority of which are 220V-240V countries. If not, then someone must have imported it way back in the day and permanently used a power converter with it. And yeah, any 8
