Hello, i got got this PowerBook 160 from gumtree sold as is - I recapped the power supply and it’s giving a constant 7.8 volts I don’t get a chime only the screen pictured, no HDD spins up - and there are no electrolytics on the main board for me to recap so I’m stumped and have no clue on where to go from here any help would be much appreciated Please includ as much detail as possible ☺️ thankyou, ‘Jarrod
Purchased a PowerBook 160 off of eBay of unknown condition as a project piece, and also because I wanted a grayscale PB. The unit did not come with a power brick, so I am using the brick from my PowerBook 165c. When I boot the machine: I get the dong Screen turns on I can hear something spinning (fan?), a pause, and then the process repeats. Does not boot up Trying to boot from floppy yields the same result; I don't even hear the floppy trying to spin up. So...any ideas on where to start to diagnose the problem(s)? Cheers. -10d
