    What is this in my 128k?

    That's a good tip I never knew about! Here I was looking up Apple part numbers! Start with isopropyl alcohol on a Q tip to clean the drive head. Do some searches on this site for troubleshooting info. Those 400K drives are built like tanks, so other than lubrication, I have rarely had problems...

    Are Mac flybacks interchangeable?

    Do note that the contacts on the flyback may be spaced differently, but the plus analog board should have a ring of contacts for either size.

    What is this in my 128k?

    It looks like your 128k still has the original 64K ROM set, despite the RAM upgrade. It was pretty typical to upgrade to the Mac Plus ROMs when doing this upgrade, aligning with cheesestraw's theory that this was an early upgrade (before the Mac Plus arrived). Without knowing the error you are...

    Missing power cable for a Cinema HD Display A1082, which options?

    Actually, this is a really good price: https://www.ebay.com/itm/184770905497 However, this is for a lower wattage than the HD monitor uses. The ones for your monitor are the 90W which is about $30 on ebay

    I can't recommend this, but at least it is an option:

    Missing power cable for a Cinema HD Display A1082, which options?

    I believe that is for a security lock so people can't steal it, not a data cable. I have the same monitor, and it works fine without anything in there. Great monitor BTW!

    Web server for Macintosh 512K

    I was able to get my Macintosh 512K web server running and on the internet for current RetroChallenge.  It is running System 2.0/Finder 1.1g  with 64K ROMs.  Here is a link to my web page with a link to the server.: http://apple-crapple.blogspot.com/2015/01/mac-512k-on-internet.html It is...

    Macintosh 512ke keyboard repair

    I checked this weekend and the keyboard I used appears to be a late apple II+ keyboard. It has brown, textured keys. The key switches appear to be identical, except that the II+ uses little plastic risers to get the key up to the right level - the same level as a 128k keyboard. The little...
