    Mouse for Lisa 2

    The keybaords are the foam kind also. so you can fix them pretty easy. make new foam. or buy foam for keyboards from ebay. So even if some of the keys on the keybaord don't work. Do NOT worry. just 40+ year old foam that needs to be replaced.

    Mac 128k componen value for C48

    I'm trying to figure out the component on the Macintosh 128k board at C48. Looks like it would be capacitors between the 2 memory rows. Does anybody happen to know the value for them? its an uncommon fault so I can't seem to find the value of it would be. (I'm guessing its the same value for...

    powerbook 5300cs

    Yeah. i mean. how much of it is that i'm just used to modern displays? I don't REALLY remember how good or bad they looked when new. But i do get that line that goes up the screen. So i wander if a recap would fix that.

    powerbook 5300cs

    I think its ok in the mostly black and white of the OS. but The game I show is Castles which is playable but  you can see in the picture its not very clear. I mostly have a problem with the ghosting for things in motion. So pictures don't really show that. I'm kinda curious how doom would look...

    powerbook 5300cs

    Picked up never-used reconditioned PB 5300cs from @maceffects ebay store.  Lucky the plastic was still wrapped around the battery as the connectors was corroded. so the computer itself was protected from the  battery. Plugged in and it fired right up. I noticed the screen has some wavy lines...

    https://udcf.gla.ac.uk/~gwm1h/Error_Codes/Sad_Mac_Codes.html I think that means bad ram at location G11 but maybe double check my reading.

    At last, a Lisa

    NICE -  I have two but both have the square pixel mod and so far i've only been able to boot up into macworks. the Hard drives / floppy drives that came with them don't work.   (i used a floppy emu to boot images) How is the screen? I find mine can't hold a straight vertical line. I've gotten...

    PB190, is it the worst? (Probably).

    Same for me. The only reason why i was able to afford it was from having a paper route and had been saving for a long time. Once it went on sale I jumped on it. within the first year the mouse button broke and the headphone jack snapped off. Any complaints that it was cheaply made and broke...

    Preventive recap Mac 128k & 512k

    Sure  But Apple 2’s seem to be fine where as 1990-ish macs seem to be not working.  So so as an order of magnitude Newer caps (maybe it being surface mount?) seem to be far worse shape then older ones  Nobody is saying anything lasts for ever  still YMMV

    Preventive recap Mac 128k & 512k

    Mac 128k, 512k, plus seem to have bad joints that need re-doing. everything after the Mac SE needs new caps. But the Mac SE seems to be a nice in-between spot. Good joints and good caps. YMMV in general tho. Mac SE's seem to be great starter collection items. they tend to still work and there...

    Anyone run Mac System lower than 6?

    the chart might be based on stock config I booted a plus the other day into 7.5.5. but it had 4MB of ram. i *think* 7.0 needs at least 2MB ?
