    PowerBook 3400/Kanga Battery

    HI galgot, that was close. I have researched and you are right there was a Battery Reset 2.0 Utility that was working with G3 (Wallstreet) and Clamshell iBook :( but not for classic OS or previous models. Nevertheless something like this must have existed alone for the fact that the battery...

    SD to IDE drive replacement for PDQ PowerBook G3

    ...very slow. Booted in 8.6, feels normal, not lightning fast, but at least on par with an old spinning HD... One thing tho, changing the theme in the Appearance Ctrl Panel, significantly slows every thing down 🤨... Well, so far these are my tries on a PB1400c only. Will try on a Wallstreet later.

    PowerBook G3 Wallstreet Battery

    ...:) Anyways, I see that there is a thread of replacing cells in the Lombard/Pismo series of G3 PowerBooks, but I have not seen one for the Wallstreets. I am in process of replacing cells in mine, but as it seems that it is quite difficult to obtain 17670 cells that are in that battery pack, I...

    powerbook g3 wont show anything untill the ssd or hdd is unplug

    Not sure if it will help you, but here's what happened with my Wallstreet series. A few days ago I pulled the IDE drive to be backed up via dd in another machine. Got in an SD to IDE adapter, formatted it in Windows to do some I/O tests on the card and then installed everything in the PowerBook...

    powerbook g3 wont show anything untill the ssd or hdd is unplug

    ...Certainly a Pismo will accept 128 GB SSDs; probably a Lombard will also but it will be a lot pickier about the mSata-to-IDE adapter. A Wallstreet - I don't know, maybe someone else can help.. I really, really suspect your adapter. I've used generic Asian-sourced (via eBay) adapters for...

    Thank you for this very fast answer!:)(y) I've also found on the garden Norton Utilities 5.0 and 6.0 - are there differences (newer = better) or is this nearly the same software like Norton Ut. 3 and 4? My Powerbook is a G3 Wallstreet running OS 9.2.2

    Question about PowerBook Wallstreet II Graphics failure

    My old faithful Wallstreet II (266mhz) has been languishing with a failing hard drive and a failing display (a rectangle of artifacts covering about 1/3 of the screen), so it being the Christmas holidays and me having some time on my hands, I decided today to do some work on the machine today...

    SSD + CDROM weirdness under OS X on Wallstreet II

    It took me forever to track down what was going on and I still don't understand why it is happening but... I am using one of those super cheap mSATA to IDE adapters and I had a hell of a time getting OS X to install on the new SSD.  It runs SOOO slow.  Install took about 8 hours and it took so...

    Wallstreet screen artifacts

    My Wallstreet, 266mhz, 14" screen, has developed screen artifacts that I would like to ask the wisdom of the group about. I have some spare parts here, but don't want just to go swapping random parts in and out, as these machines would be tedious to work on in that way. I am looking for the...

    Powerbook G3 Wallstreet Hard drive troubles

    Hello, so a while ago, I upgraded my Powerbook g3 Wallstreet to a 16 gb ide to SD card adaptor, but I am only able to install macOS9 on it. Amy version of OSX results with a unbacklit install screen. And trying to install it anyways always ends up with a frozen installer. If anyone knows why...

    Strange PowerBook G3 Configs: A tale of two PDQs

    ...in terms of HDD capacities and lack of the S-Video Port on a high end model? There's something about S-Video being optional on the Wallstreet somewhere. everymac? What's the story with a 333MHz PDQ? Might it be overclocked? edit: forgot to mention, neither 'Book gives me the option to scale...

    Powerbook Wallstreet Hinges

    Hi everyone, As probably most of you know, Wallstreet G3 screen hinges have the tendency to.. well, give up. I've just got a Wallstreet and I would like to know how I can delay this as much as I can. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

    Powerbook G3 266 Wallstreet Fan starts with any power

    All glory is fleeting. I found reasonable looking untested powerbook G3 266. Initially on powering up, chime, hard drive clicked, clicked then a flashing disk on a reasonably good screen. I started up several times (and left it on) with an installation CD for 9.2.2 and 8.6. Great..it works, but...

    Wallstreet / PDQ Internal Modem Slot Pinout

    Greetings! Does anyone have any information on the internal modem connector on the Wallstreet, PDQ, and early iMacs? It seems fairly clear that it has pins for 5v DC and UART(probably? Rockwell datasheets aren't easy to come by), but I can't find much else on the topic that can't be...
