6100 just arrived!
Hey all!

I'm living in the Netherlands and I'm happy to announce Apple just started to deliver the PM 6100 to our country! Mine just arrived :p
And now I'll get serious: I got a non-functioning 6100: Nothing appears on the screen... The monitor is ok, it has been tested. On startup I can hear the chime, then the harddisk rattles and rolls for some 4 seconds and then it stops doing anything. It won't boot from cd either.

Anyone has an idea what might cause this?

long long time ago I used to own a 6100/66, I remember that I had the same problem. opened up the machine and replaced the battery that was sitting on the mobo and that worked. Hope this helps.

More often than not, when I pick up an old machine that was supposed to be working, but won't start up, replacing the mobo battery fixes it.

this was a problem with this model. the pram gets corrupted, and kills the video.

also, if it just dies, replace the motherboard for 20$US. mide dies of overheating or just plain death. i did get to replace the 60mhz with 66mhz from ebay =). ignore this, since you have the chime.
