Logic board

Review the ESD precautions in Bulletins/Safety.

Note: If you are replacing a logic board that has one SIMM slot, replace it with P/N 661-01 58. If you are replacing a logic board that has two SIMM slots, replace it with P/N 661-1114.

Note: The LC 630 DOS-Compatible logic board includes the main logic board with DRAM SIMM, the DOS-Compatible board with DRAM SIMM, DOS-Compatible sound board, DOS-Compatible adapter board, and appropriate cables.

1 Disconnect the 16-pin external video out cable from the logic board.

2 Remove the four Phillips screws from the DOS-compatible board.

Caution: the DOS-compatible board is installed directly into the '040 processor socket. Use extreme caution not to bend the processor pins when you remove the DOS-compatible board from the main logic board.

3 Gently loosen each side of the DOS-compatible board from the processor socket.

4 Lift off the board.

Replacement Note: Return a defective DOS-Compatible board to Apple service with the 68LC040 processor installed.
