Including the one in my old cube I bought in '95 which worked when I

functioning NeXT MO in existence, and then just stopped while it was
in storage. I have the idea it could be coaxed back into life
somehow, but they are just about perfectly impossible to work on. If
anybody has had any success repairing these, I am unaware of it. One
guy says he's had success, but won't share information, so I am
choosing to believe he's a liar.
Good luck. You're going to need it. /@:
None of that surprises me. I recall when the cube came out that the
business of a no-hard-disk-just-MO was a big "feature", which I thought
was one of the most wrong-headed decisions that St. Jobs ever made.
Time, it seems, has proved me right.
This is in a response to an inquiry out of the blue--there are only 3
MOs and the requester has had no success in retrieving the information
on a (supposedly) working NeXT cube.
If anyone would like to tackle this one, contact me and I'll give you
