First post long time lurker,
Long story short i Just got a hold of 4 old Macs + a monitor:
- G3 Beige Desktop
- Powermac 7200/200
- Mac Quadra 605
- MAc LC
Apple CRT monitor
I booted up the G3 by itself and the light came on and it seemed to boot fine.
Booted the monitor by itself. it made the usual suspect noises of a CRT that probably hasn't been turned on in over 20 years but it illuminated and the light turned on.
I then booted them together and i saw the post screen + splash screen turn on but then the monitor started buzzing big time and then the G3 powered of and no longer turns on???
I then, being a glutton for punishment (+ ignorant) repeated the process with the MAC LC ::facepalm::
SAME RESULT Now the Mac LC wont power either
This has me bamboozled because i dont see how the monitor could damage the mac's themselves .....
So my question to any savvy users is ... did i blow the PSU's on the Mac's or do you think i fried the MOBO's?
Or any suggestions like maybe i just tripped something and they will work after they have some alone time?
Thanks in advance,
Did my monitor just kill my G3??
