So I have this Macintosh LC II for an occasional game with friends of mine, and it used to work fine last summer, but then sometime in December it wouldn’t boot.
I was quite busy with things so I had to put off the repair. Oh how I wish I didn’t.
Realizing it boots fine with an HDD from Mac Classic I took the original HDD out of it’s cage and look:

Yup, there are electrolytic caps on that board! (who the hell designed it that way must have been thinking of planned obsolence way too ahead)
Don’t be a shithead like me, check your Macs and keep your data safe :-)
