I remember using the Performa 5200 in school back in the early 90's. The school took way too long to replace them and when they finally did, with windows boxes, we all celebrated, and now I feel stupid for not realizing what a step down it was. They still are very nice looking machines, especially compared to the beige boxes that they were replaced with.

I was just given a Performa 636CD. It's my new Rosetta Stone - I added a NIC, and now it talks EtherTalk to my OSX 10.3 boxen, and can still read/run early MacOS stuff.

Hey guys, I'm desperately trying to find out how to replace the power supply on my 5400 (5500 motherboard, Sonnet G3). I have a donor 5400 and a fair amount of experience tinkering on these in the usual ways but this is a little outside my comfort zone. Normally I'd just get another one but this one is special, it's all black like the Mac TV, imported from the UK. Anybody got any ideas?

With the Service Manual, it will all become a breeze ;)
I uploaded it for you right here

Wow, this is what the spirit of community is all about. I really, really appreciate you taking the time to help me out. This means a lot. Many thanks!

My pleasure.
Let us know how it went or if you need anything else.
I've changed numerous power supplies, but never on a Performa.
