    Help! Where is the SE, SE 30 Analog Cap list?

    Here's a link to JDW's recap video. The description includes a link to a mouse cart with all the required caps in it. :) Macintosh SE & SE/30 Analog Board Recapping Walkthrough I've ordered the components in this cart 3 times now and never had any issue. Works great! Also, there's a mouser...

    Macintosh SE scanlines on display - another analog board fault!

    ..:: Resurrecting this old thread since I see this question asked all over other forums, and I just experienced the issue myself ::.. Cheers Jake for the detailed repair notes! I had the exact same problem with an SE I recently picked up. Recapped the power supply and analog board, but the...

    PowerBook 140 restoration

    Hi Beachycove. I'm using MpegDEC for the MP3 stream. I've attached a video of my CC Mystic loading MpegDEC, then playing the 64K/sec from Nectarine, Demoscene Radio. It's a 64K/sec stream, but on the internal speaker it sounds just fine. :) The file I drag into the player is a text file with...

    PowerBook 140 restoration

    My 68K compact machines have PDS network cards. I use the connection mostly for transferring files from my Synology NAS via FTP (easier than popping out the SD card from the ZuluSCSI). :) I have our printer (an Oki laser) shared with them. Works great as a LaserWriter LPR printer. :) SSHeven is...

    PowerBook 140 restoration

    Cheers Powerbook27364, I appreciate the links to the battery articles! I ended up buying a general multi-select voltage power supply (set it to 7.5vDC @ 3A max) on Amazon. Works no problem with my PB140. I'll probably use it until I can pick up a real Apple supply and fix that up someday. I...

    PowerBook 140 restoration

    Hi Everyone, A friend who knows I enjoy restoring vintage machines recently gave me her dead PowerBook 140 that had been stored and forgotten about in the back of her closet for decades. It is in excellent cosmetic condition for a 33 year old laptop! The fun begins... I could hear tiny bits of...

    Building an internal grayscale card for the SE/30

    I'd buy one instantly as well for my SE/30 if they were ever released as either a kit or a finished product. :)

    ADB to USB converter & Wifi2Serial project - DONE!

    Cheers, Dark Systems isn't an Apple specific BBS, but the file base does have some Mac games, etc... My board actually still runs RemoteAccess (for DOS), just like I did waaay back in the early to mid 90s. :) Only now, it's in a DOS session under Windows and with a Telnet aware FOSSIL to let...

    Sound-Trecker / Player Pro drivers

    Hi olePigeon, Cheers for the reply and the links. Greatly appreciated! I'd seen a few of those resources, but the one PlayerPro site is new to me, just need free time to experiment with the source now. lol :) The Sprite Animation Toolkit references these two packaged and specifically, C...

    ADB to USB converter & Wifi2Serial project - DONE!

    Thanks :) I followed Chester's Blog, which does a great job explaining the steps for the build. Chester's Blog I was able to find the panel mount S-Video female connects on Amazon (pack of 5, so I may need to build more of these) lol. S-Video (Female) The Arduino I used is an unused Leonardo...

    ADB to USB converter & Wifi2Serial project - DONE!

    Hi Everyone, Just wanted to share this simple, but fun little project I just finished. Built an enclosure for my OldNet WiFi2Serial modem that also houses an Arduino Leonardo acting as an ADB to USB converter. I can now use my favourite +30 year old Extended Keyboard II and single button mouse...

    Sound-Trecker / Player Pro drivers

    Hi Everyone, Long shot question, but would anyone happen to have either the Sound-Trecker drivers by Frank Seide OR Antoine Rosset's Player Pro drivers along with the code examples that were packed in the development kits? I managed to find the Player Pro SDK, but it's for much later OS then...

    Getting my SE/30 online

    Just something to keep in mind if you don't get a network connection... My SE/30 has a DaynaPort E/SI30 PDS Ethernet card, which works awesome. However, I had to configure the connected switchport on my CISCO switch to force 10bT / half duplex instead of the regular, modern auto detection of...

    Color Classic buzzing from CRT

    Hi Everyone, I recently recapped the analog boards in my two Colour Classics. One is a Mystic, the other is a stock CC. Their logic boards were recapped months ago. Both worked perfectly after their recaps, and the Mystic still does. However, the stock CC analog board has started emitting a...

    SSHeven: a modern SSH client for Mac OS 7/8/9

    Loving SSHeven. Works great on my SE/30, and even better on my Color Classic Mystic at '040 speeds (and colour, lol). Yet another breath of new life and purpose given to these beautiful nostalgic machines. :) Thanks for continuing to develop for 68K!

    Color Classic analog board recap screen adjustments

    Man do I feel like a Nerf Herder. lol My Color Classic's CRT ghosting / image quality issues are all fixed. I did the recapping of the analog board correctly thanks to your cap listing (phew!) but, being super over eager, I'd taken apart BOTH of my CCs at the same time to clean and de-cap. When...
