    RaSCSI and Maintosh Plus

    Has anyone other gotten their Plus to boot from a RaSCSI? I've created and formatted multiple disks and installed System 6.0.8, I can see it if I boot from another disk but cannot boot form the RaSCSI alone. Have tried formatting/new drivers with Special HD SC Setup 7.3.5, PLI, Blue Disc...

    Soldering success

    Not apple but Atari related, but a conquest, at least for me. It may give additional motivation to attempt (again) a reconstruction of the LCD ribbon for a 180c. Anyway...aside from the center ground of the FPGA (which I couldn't see but assumed I melted with a heat gun), this was all...

    Color Classic speed

    I had increased the memory on my color classic today to 8 MB hoping for a speed bump. It's running System 7.1.1 and 32 bit addressing is on, on reading System 7.1.1 has 32 bit quickdraw built in. Abuse and Prince of Persia 2 are not playable secondary to the lag. I thought at least POP would...

    Powerbook 180 LCD ribbon cable repair

    So after ALOT of work as my last action on a working 180c, I replaced the hinge covers closed the top and walked 20 feet inside, plugged in and got a white screen only. I had pinched the LCD cable with the hinge cover then ripped it when I closed. I'm not counting on finding a replacement cable...

    SE/30 question ...probably basic electronics

    1) Pin 8 to the logic board (+12 volts) has capacitors 2 and 25 in parallel and they seem to be intact. It also has 2 resistors (R14 and R15, with the number "100" on them but listed as 10 ohm resistors in the schematic) in parallel. When I measure either R14 or R15 I get a short. Is this really...

    Laser 128ex....how to revive

    I had a working Laser 128 ex ((Apple IIc clone) that was working fine. The external 3.5 inch drive was not, but I could plug it into the computer and just get an I/O error on APTPro. I disassembled the external drive, unplugging multiple small connections in the process, cleaned, reassembled...

    Bernoulli Drive fixes, ?any experiences anyone

    I had a great experince  with a SCSI Sony magneto optical drive and decided to keep checking out older scsi removable media devices. Found a Jaz drive and it is, thus far, infinitely better than the zip. I found a couple of bernoulli 150 MB external SCSI drives and they both turn on, the scsi...

    These guys were't kidding. This is an old SCSI drive from Club Mac (pioneer inside). It reads single layer DVD ROM and that is ALL.

    Help identifying a generic (Apple II?) external floppy drive

    I picked this up locally planning to use it with a IIc. It looks the part, it even came from the local school system. The last 2 characters on the model number are even "GS". There is a disk inside it...Wheel of Fortune" form 1988 that says on the label "Boot DOS disk (version 2.11 or greater)...

    Apple DVI to ADC adapter does NOT work on CRT with ADC connector

    I just wanted to put that title to the post so it would pop up quickly for anyone doing a search. It never crossed my mind that this adapter wouldn't work on the CTR's with the same connector. If you have a CTR that has the ADC connector, as best as I can determine, it must be powered via the...

    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...

    Apple Studio 21 inch CRT....dang

    I waited and watched on ebay and craigs list to find a nearby 21 inch blue and white studio CTR display for a B&W G3 tower . After about 18 months, against the odd I think, I found one in fantastic condition and bought it. It worked with my blue and white g3 without a hitch for about 2...

    Powerbook Duo 280 broken resistor..looking for advice

    I had acquired a nonworking powerbook duo 280. It would chime, then make a loud, brief static sound through the speakers and go to a grey screen only. I decided to recap and see if that fixed it.  While cleaning, around the negative terminal of C9, I found a broken resistor. As it was out of...

    Odd Duo Memory

    This was found in a nonworking (clicking) Duo 280. When I plug it into a working Duo 230, the 230 will not start up until I remove it. It appears to be memory and that's where it was. I cannot find a similar chip online. Can more memory plug into the connector on this?

    Powerbook 500 series power adapter questions

    I was just going to leave a few comments about the power supply for a 520c.I had obtained the computer but had no adapter and I sprung for a working adapter on ebay for 30 bucks (more than the computer cost). When I plugged it in there was an instant pop, I checked the output and the voltage was...

    G5 Power supply out...now what?

    I spent the morning taking apart a 2.3 ghz DC G5 power mac this morning. It made no noises or lights what so ever  and the power supply made no click when plugged into the wall. After searching online, I thought I could at least check the fuse. I can see one end of it with the other covered in...

    Any ideas on what needs replacing on this Duo 230 LCD panel

    I have changed out a backlight from a bad LCD to a good looking LCD. It looks good for about 30-45 seconds...then flicker to stripes , then eventually to grey (no mouse). I am 90% sure it is on the LCD panel itself as the prior LCD panel worked fine..it just had a big red spot in the middle.Are...

    Any ideas on how to remove this SE logic board

    This is my first post on the forum and despite searching here and elsewhere, I have not been able to locate anyone with this issue. I like to think it is because I have a rare machine here, but the answer maybe obvious.  Regardless of  outcome, I just do not like the thought of an unusual find...
