  1. This is a picture from an auction I am interested in. What is the card on the motherboard? The seller happens to have the box of a Sonnet L2/G3 on offer with the Colour Classic but this can't be that. That would make the motherboard one from an early PCI Powermac (like a 5400). Could it be a Sonnet 040 card? What do ye think?
  2. Can any of you Color Classic owners confirm if the stock fan is 80x25mm and runs at 12V? Also, is the fan 2-wire or 3-wire? Lastly, if there is anything that would impede the easy replacement with a modern 80x25mm fan, please let me know. Thank you!
  3. Since my SE/30 Wi-Fi Mod was somewhat successful, I decided to apply a similar technique to my Colour Classic (I’m not a total Mac hoarder, I only have these two!). Here’s the result: (my Colour Classic is a Mystic with a 575 logic board, but this technique should also work on a stock Colour Classic) If you’ve got an SE/30 with a network card, then you’ll know that it is in fact 2 cards connected by a ribbon cable – this made my original Wi-Fi conversion easy as I could just re-arrange things inside the case. However, network cards in the Colour Classic butt against the case, so
  4. Hello all, The short version: The CC (re-capped) no longer boots. I seek guidance. The long version: I booted my Colour Classic earlier today after about 8 months of non-use and I ran into a series of issues. Let me start by saying that the CC has an LC 550 logic board. Both the logic board and the analogue board (integrated power supply) were fully recapped around two years ago (ceramics, tants, and electrolytics where necessary) with ONE exception. I had the wrong sized 330uf 400v, so had to resit the original (see photo). Nevertheless, the CC operated perfectly well
  5. Hey folks. I remember reading about something similar to this some time ago. But I didn't pay that much attention to it as I wasn't really into CCs back then. Now I am though. I recently picked up a nice looking original CC. The seller advertised it as non working/for parts only and as it turns out, it boots up just fine. (apparently he had completely forgotten about soft power...) So that's good. What isn't though is this: NB: The flag in the top right section of the screen is supposed to be the French flag. Blue, White and Red. It's definitely not supposed to be green, w
  6. Hi all, I'm trying to remove the analog board from my Colour Classic, so that I can send it off to have its caps replaced. I have all cables separated except for the thick red cable that connects the flyback transformer (I think that it is) to the CRT. I have only ever once removed this cable before - on my SE/30 - and it wasn't so difficult. I have read through the CRT guide in this manual and followed the procedure of pinch, push and twist. It's not coming out. Underneath the red cap I can see two pins. I am a tad apphrensive about using much force on the CRT proper. I also haven't d
