And it’s disassembled. Next up: deep inspection and capacitor inventory taking.
Digging deeper. This may be the most modern photography of a Pico mainboard on the Internet :-)
Also facing a sprite garbling issue. Likely needs replacement capacitors.
Got it opened without breaking the sticker
Seems like the problem is with the micro switch inside the pen. Getting the pen to open means removing a 30yr old sticker. Heatgun helps here.
Fixed, cleaned, tested, working 100%. Thanks pencil eraser!
The right one is 100% corroded.
Gotta love the NUC Hades Canyon. For larger backup/file distribution, I have currently connected: 2*2TB NVMe internal , 1*2TB external, 1TB SSD and 17TB in 4 external HDDs. Total storage: 24TB - crazy when you think about it. It all just works, too. I can very much recommend this model to run Linux on.
All fixed. Almost 10 years in, it is still the most gorgeous Mac. Replacing thermal paste helped temperature, too.
