Thread: Exidy Sorcerer error

    It's maybe hard to see, but I'm actually measuring the caps between + and - . Every beep = connectivity between those points which shouldn't be according to my knowledge (at least, not for tantalum caps). Others don't do that while on the same setup (and even same value).
    I have a few computers and only have 612m2 for computers.

    whizzi,
    Let me state it another way. Pick one cap that beeps, and unsolder it and remove it. See if the Motherboard Pads still Beep,
    and the Cap checks good on a Cap checker. (If you were to power up the Motherboard, then the caps that beep would have ZERO
    volts across them, since they are a short. I'd think the 5 VDC line being shorted in that many places would be more than the
    Power Supply could provide. It would blow a fuse or shut down for current limit. )
