I just bought a "pig in a poke" 6100/66 Dos compatable Powermac from the local school where it has been unused for a couple of years and I have verified the monitor and keyboard , mouse work and last night I had the CPU working on my own 6200's monitor and keyboard but this morning it refused to fire up the monitor - it stayed in standby - when I tried it with its own monitor the same problem but after trying to reset it I got the dreaded screeching tyres and breaking glass sound - from my research this morning it sounds like a hardware problem or possibly just the battery had died - either way I cannot get into the case to check it out - it must be one of those models where Apple didn't want us inside <g> - any ideas on the problem or on how to get inside?
Thanks - isn't it always the way - I was afraid to put too much pressure on those "lugs" for fear of breaking something and out it slipped - rigged up a temporary 3.6v battery with 3 rechargable NiMH batteries from my digital camera to test it out - and - it worked - all systems go - when I
measured the battery condition it barely registered ( about 0.1 volt!)
Up and flying once more:-)
