PSU hell

Some time ago I was given a a PowerMac G4 Quicksilver that needed a new PSU. Instead of getting a new one I made an adapter that used the damaged original PSU to supply the 25v needed and a regular ATX PSU to do the rest of the work.

Now I have a newer PowerMac G4 Mirrored Drive Door that also has a damaged PSU. I plugged it in when I got home and the fuse blow up. I’m hoping that the fuse is the only thing that needs replacing as this computer is would be the best mac that I have.

It would also seem that either the PSU or logic board has gone in my PowerMac G4 Sawtooth so that would need fixing at some point or it might be given away for recycling. In other mac news I need a new logic board for my PowerBook G4 because my FW400 port has gone and that is needed for the scanner. Even if I can’t get the software to work it would be a good idea to fix the laptop before my warranty runs out. Also my PowerMac G3 B&W is running fine with no faults that I know of. Cos one of them has to be fine…
