Macintosh Quadra 950 - Power Supply Issue
Looking on eBay, I found a rather clean Quadra 950 tower for sale with no bids at the moment.
It's has a 68040 33 Mhz processor, 40 MB RAM, though is lacking a HDD and 3.6v battery.
The seller says it was working fine until last July, though since then would be "randomly" shutting down after 30-60 minutes of use. Now he says it's only after a couple of minutes.
I would assume it's most likely the power supply and it needs new capacitors. However, my hardware diagnostic skills on old Macs is rather limited. I'm interested to know if anyone else has experienced using Quadra and whether something else could potentially be causing the issue.
Personally I thought it would make a nice project, considering it was top of the line back in the early 1990s.
