    Hot Booting CC

    I found the suggestion to turn the machine on with logic board removed, then hot plug the board to turn it on - not bc of a missing keyboard, just if it failed to soft boot normally.  I can't find the original suggestion (this was months ago). My board has a SCSI problem.  I think (/am pretty...

    Etherport SE

    I just bought an SE ethernet card here.  I've tried some stuff.  It's installed as is 6.0.8 and NSI 1.4.4 in a 1mb 800k SE.  The Network Control Panel sees both Appletalk and Ethertalk.  I don't know if the latter is the card.  The PDS part is Novell and the port part is Kinetics EtherPort...

    SE PRAM Battery Location

    I've been meaning to ask for a while. I inexpertly desoldered the old one years ago, thankfully without harming the board. Is it the two outer holes? The only image I found showed differently but I would like certainty if someone is sure of the answer? Mouser sells these and I want to put...

    P560/CC Screen Issue

    I just recapped a Performa 560 motherboard and put it in my Color Classic chassis.  I had noticed coloration issues with the screen (it kept changing tone and I had to keep adjusting it).  And I'd noticed some "column" issues - where it looked/looks like it's bending inward slightly toward the...

    Performa 5xxx Monitor as Monitor

    ... Is there any way to use a Performa 5400/120 (with TV kit - not specifically relevant) just as a monitor.  For instance, could I put a desktop beige G3 under the Performa and for space reasons use the Performa just in a a monitor state [it sounds dumber each time I try to rephrase it in my...

    Apple II Archives

    I'm looking for disk images - not audio files - specifically Disk Copy-compatible images. I realize this is a potentially precarious question...  I've looked through the forum but I couldn't find much.  I recently downloaded a half-gig archive but my first test (Crystal Quest) failed.  I gather...

    IIgs Networking Boot Disk

    Well... the basic question was how do I fit networking onto an 800k disk when I keep getting space errors. I may have been trying to install the wrong version, though. It seems the correct version is not Appleshare but Appleshare, 3.5 Disk (which in hindsight makes perfect sense but was not...

    AppleColor RGB Monitor issue

    Unless I set the horizontal basically all the way from edge to edge of the CRT, it flickers with almost a frequency-pattern, like one would expect on an oscilloscope, but I can tell/here/partially see that the machine is chugging away and that this is purely visual.  There's a minor buzz, as...

    ADB To Atari ST Converter

    http://atariage.com/forums/topic/198878-mouse-conversion/ I just got a reasonably cheap Atari 1040STF without any accessories.  I jury rigged a VGA cable that I'll solder into a real 13-pin DIN connector when it arrives, but I still have no mouse.  The potentially easiest way of circumventing...

    RS/6000 PCI SCSI Card

    You guys are probably going to skewer me for this... I bought an unclear SCSI card on the gamble I might be able to use it in a PC.  It doesn't have clear identification marks but the chip is a Symbios  53C875 and there's a 4-K label on the outside-facing part of the card (by the port).  Windows...

    SEx86

    I have a spare SE/30 case I was going to sell cheap or part out, but I think I'd rather do a casemod project for my old machine that I at this point only use to write 5 1/4" floppies. Can anyone recommend a 9" 4:3 lcd screen/inverter - cheap?  [is that the aspect ratio...?] In the alternative...

    Apple II Daughter Boards (Z-Engine / Grappler Plus)

    I would like to test a Grappler Plus card for which I don't have a ready cable (to printer).  Is that possible?  When I try to enable the slot it's in the machine doesn't produce a response on the screen I can use to debug. I also want to test the Z80 coprocessor card.  I found three "ALS CPM...

    Game: I don't know what do you want to do

    In the early-mid 90s, my friend had a game probably on his LC III that mostly consisted of minigames, one of which was just watching a TV screen with an infinite loop-conversation beginning "What do you want to do?" and then continuing indefinitely: "I don't know. What do you want to do?" Does...

    Color Classic Internal SCSI

    I got a Color Classic today that wouldn't power on.  I fixed the mother board; then I got a reddish hue issue that went away with adjusting the internal controls. Throughout, the internal HD didn't seem to work.  I took it out and put an 80mb Maxtor that I knew worked in its place and got a...

    AppleTalk Internet Router

    I am trying to create a LocalTalk to ethernet bridge (or something) with ethernet to my PM 7100 and localtalk to an SE.  The end goal is to use the internet on the SE (just more or less for a photo-op).  I have weird problems...

    Dual-Boot Partition Corruption (?)

    I setup a dual-boot machine in my 7100, because the most recent HD in it came with three partitions.  7.6.1 was installed on one and the other two were blank.  I put 8.5 on another one and upgraded to 8.6 yesterday. I booted into 7.6.1 for the first time in about a week today (meaning after I...

    Power Macintosh 7100/66 Wifi Card?

    Let me give minor context.  I was looking, out of curiosity, for memory.  32mb simms are $6 a piece, so it'd be $24 to upgrade it from 48mb* to 136mb of RAM.  Then I asked myself... why?  And I had no real answer other than maybe internet.  Another key fact.  I have a router less than 10 feet...

    Open Apple/Cmd on Newton Keyboard

    I just got one off eBay and hopefully will soon be getting a 'free' dongle, because for the moment I can only key it up on my 120.  I did just take a sec to look around the keys config, though... what could open apple/command (there's actually no command symbol though) possibly be used for...

    Raoul Duke's Gonzo Adventures

    Sorry... I have to be a tool like everyone else.  (Follow-up... sorry everyone else). As I was careening through the streets this morning in a rented convertible Cadillac, I came upon an outwardly pristine LC with a pretty good condition 12" RGB monitor.  As best I can tell the monitor works...
