The second one did restore sound to the IIci, via the replacement of a number of 10 and 47uF SMT capacitors. However, the machine still shuts down after 30 minutes.I didn't get to my third project, which was the similar replacement of failed capacitors on a Macinotsh IIx.Thanks to everyone, but especially to Ian Primus and David Gesswein for their pointers on SMT soldering/desoldering, and the loan/gift of equipment and consumables.- Alex
