    Yet Another LC PSU thread - How to test with a multi-meter?

    I have a TDK and an Astec PSU for my 2 LCIIs. Both are completely dead. I could just re-cap and hope for the best but Id' like some guidance on testing voltages with a multi-meter. How can I tell what the voltages are coming out of the PSU? Also, I have lots of hardware reference books but none...

    Starting a Mac Plus restoration. Need a new flyback wire with anode cap

    This poor thing has been in storage since the early 90s. I was gonna use it as a donor Mac but it turns out I don't need any parts from it. So, I decided to try and resurrect it. I plugged it in with my Floppy EMU to try a boot and just got clicking from the PSU (not surprised). I started...

    Mac Plus beeps, then nothing… occasional reboot beeps at random intervals

    I have my original Mac Plus that I bought in 1986. It's been in storage for about a year. I just took it out and tried to boot it and got a beep and then nothing. I have a 6.0.8 boot floppy in the drive but then I hooked up my Floppy Emu and it lights up but keeps going in to self test mode...

    IIci sound is really quiet

    I just fired up my IIci after about a year in storage (climate controlled). I'm noticing the sound is barely audible. I have it cranked all the way up and can just barely hear it. The startup chime is nice and loud though. Any suggestions what to check for?

    17" Studio Display with ADC>DVI adapter with a Raspberry Pi

    Hi, I have a 17" Studio Display with a DVI to ADC adapter. It works fine on my 2015 Macbook Pro plugged into the HDMI port. I'm using a DVI to HDMI converter.

    7.1 vs 7.5.3 on a Color Classic

    Hi all, I'm setting up my new Color Classic and it came with 7.1 on it so I copied 7.5.3 to my SCSI2SD and replaced the OS with the newer one. I immediately noticed a significant slow down in boot time and general response. Is 7.5.3 that much slower than 7.1? or is there something I'm missing...

    Just bought a Color Classic, no power

    I just received my new color classic and plugged it in and no power, no led, no nothing. I pulled the MB and saw that the battery had been taken out. Will a CC boot with no battery at all? Could that be the problem? What else should I look at? The pics on ebay showed the computer running with a...

    Can someone post a pic of a Mac II drive sled?

    I just picked up a sweet Mac II from pathw that needs a hard drive sled. I could fashion one from sheet metal or just print one but I'm trying to restore everything to original. I just wanna know what the original looked like. Probably the same sled as the IIx and the IIfx. Thanks

    0F0004 error on 128k

    I'm reviving and restoring a 128k. When I boot from a floppy, I got a 0F0064 error after reading the floppy and giving a smily face. I assumed the floppy was bad so I tried a few more and got the same thing. Then I read that the 128 would only boot from System 3.2. So pulled out a system 1.1...

    512k Floppy Drive won't eject

    I have a 512k that I'm restoring and the floppy reads fine but will not eject. When I manually eject with a paper clip, the disk gets stuck and won't come out. So I cracked the case and removed the drive and carefully removed the disk without damaging it. When I manually push the eject tab, the...

    Mac IIci exploded battery...

    I took apart 2 IIci boxes to find one of them had an exploded battery (pics below). I don't really need to keep it as chances are it's toast so if any of you need parts I have the box, the plastic floppy tower, the power supply (don't know if it works but the machine clicked when I turned it on...
