3400c Service?

Hi all. Looking for anyone/anycorp that would take my 3400c and re-cap and replace the battery and as a bonus put in a ZuluSCSI Laptop RP2040 2.5" that I would send off with the item so I can have a fresh install of 7.6 on it. After viewing
I know I don't have the skills or materials to make that happen.

According not MacTracker the 3400C has an internal ATA hard drive and you can see in the video above it’s attached with a custom flex cable (29 minute mark). It should be easier to swap in a larger ATA drive.

Correct, 3400 does indeed use ATA.
Wow. Thanks for that. Somehow I read the sheet 5 times and missed that fact it’s an ATA drive. I’d like to do SD because then I could image it from a more modern machine and then if I mess it up I can replace it quickly.

I found a much better video about disassembly (
), and can just get an ATA SSD it appears for new storage. However, the PRAM battery and recapping I still am looking for someone to do. I pinged Apple Rescue of Denver and they passed on it.

Thanks for all ideas!
