Hello! As I turned my C900 on today, the power supply has been clicking for some time and then died completely again. After I re-connected the PSU from a 720, the graphic card does not produce the picture, and the serial port does not work. Apart from that the computer works OK (I can see the disk activity, and then after it boots I can type commands blindly and I see that the disk drive goes alive, so the Coherent system is executing the commands), so I assume that it is something simple with the voltage - the graphic card needs -5V for its ECL chips and the RS-232 interface needs -12V and these both do not work, everything that is powered from +5V and +12V is working correctly. Unfortunately I have no more time to devote to fixing this new problem, so I decided that it's time my C900 found a new home: http://www.ebay.de/itm/321762800640 Hopefully somebody will be able to make it fully work again :-) Regards, Michau.
