    Printer setup help needed!

    If the printer is AppleTalk, the WiFi extender may not be passing those packets. Edit: Oooh sweet 1k posts
  3. I've recently resurrected my beloved old Newton 2100, and I was able to download the "UNNA Archives" which have a nearly overwhelming quantity of software, much of it with no accompanying info or context. Given this, I'm curious: what software would you guys recommend I check out? I'm especially interested in anything that would be fun to show off or demo - games, interesting tricks, anything that would take advantage of a Lucent WaveLAN card, etc... but I'm not picky. So many people still love their Newtons, I figure there's gotta be some especially cool apps I should be checking out! Huxley
  4. Did swapping that cap fix this issue?

    mAcTX - ATX to Classic Macs

    Future Plans: In the works right now are: Quadra 630/6200/etc chassis machines. This one's very early with no finalized design. We need to pull a machine apart and get measurements internally to determine what needs to go where exactly (on a PCB. connector wise). This one's being worked on by @blusnowkitty and is in very early concept stage. Macintosh II/IIx/IIfx. I'm working on this one and I've got some sample connectors from Molex and measurements done on how the PCB fits into the case. This one will be using a Flex ATX PSU since there's plenty of space inside the case and you might want to load up your IIfx with dual Radius Rockets and dual 24 bit Color cards and a network card. That'll draw some power. I've also got an OG II with a dead PSU - and recapping was not the solution (and I don't feel like digging into it right now). Astec problems.

    mAcTX - ATX to Classic Macs

    So here's the rundown since the thread kind of turned into a jumble. There're two versions currently just about ready to go. Final hardware revisions done and all that stuff. Just working on the other random stuff like documentation rather than hardware. That, and sorting out 3D printed parts. The first is the mAcTX LC. This one is for the LC 1/2/3/Performa variations/etc. This is the final design and setup for how it works, sans that heatshrink on the motherboard lead. That'll go. The next is the mAcTX II Compact. This one's for the Macintosh IIsi mainly but also works in the IIcx, IIci, etc, etc. Hardware wise it's done but I don't have the rear mounting bracket stuff finished yet. All the 3D printed tests are bummed off other people since I don't have a 3D printer myself. I've also got 50 PCBs and parts to assemble 20 full boards already here.

    Beige G3 Strange Issues

    I wound up salvaging what I could and getting rid of the rest of the machine, as it was a total rust bucket, not to mention the problem with the logic board. I did get some nice parts out of it though!
  8. Honestly I think that looks really good! I guess it makes sense for those discolored internal plastics!

    Is it a Lisa????? Is it a Macintosh????

    I just wonder how much all of those ram chips originally cost. It would NOT have been cheap I bet! It's also neat that the Lisa video circuitry is similar enough that it doesn't need much of an adapter to work.

    mAcTX - ATX to Classic Macs

    Interestingly I think I got an adapter like this to work with my Centris 650 with just a 2N3906 as the only part. No resistors. This was quite a while ago though so I may be totally wrong.

    mAcTX - ATX to Classic Macs

    I know I am super late on this, but, with the IIsi, instead of spinning your wheels with the 7404, you could have used a 7406.

    Apple Extended Keyboard Matrix Problem

    I would check for continuity between a key in that column and one in that row with a multimeter. That might rule out having a bad input on the keyboard microcontroller.

    mAcTX - ATX to Classic Macs

    Is there a definitive single list of all versions of these boards that exist / are planned, and what machines they're compatible with? Having read through the thread, I'm still unclear on that.

    Is it a Lisa????? Is it a Macintosh????

    Haha, would you be able to tell where you got this Lisa from? I'm sure it's got a strange origin story

    ADTPro Lisa Profile Transfer

    Not sure if this is needed information, but ZTerm doesn't seem to work on Catalina cause it isn't 64 Bit.

    BGE's take on the Quadra 900/950 ATX PSU Mod

    What other machines would this adapter be compatible with? ie, use the same pinout as the Q900 & 950?

    That's called a "grommet" in English, ich hab kein Idee auf Deutsch, schade

    Rebuilding a iBook Battery

    I *think* you can reset the battery chip with these OF commands: reset-nvram set-defaults reset-all Don't quote me on that though.

    PowerBook 17" Battery Recell?

    I would be careful, I've killed many of the little BMSes by reconnecting the cell wires in the wrong order. Not shorting anything, just in the wrong order. Something about it they don't like, and I'm not really sure what it was.

    Macintosh Portable Troubleshooting

    Ah, perfect! Thanks! I'll update everyone when the parts have arrived and have been installed. I'll be replacing both of them just in case the other went bad too.

    Color Classic Shaking, shading, and flicker in the game

    Hi techknight, Oh OK, I will recap logic soon. I've been aware of the importance of flyback failures on the original iMac a long time ago. I actually repaired a few iMacs. This time, along board with the recap, other additional soldering was performed and carefully melted. And yes, all pots have already been cleaned with a contact cleaner and now it works. It seems no issue.

    Awful Macintosh SE FDHD Revival

    If you need an Apple, I have two (what I consider) beater SE cases, and could part it out to you.

    Awful Macintosh SE FDHD Revival

    I bet this’ll work in the end. The SE is definitely the most reliable compact Mac out of them all. I’ve got a regular and an FDHD. Both work great. One of the better Macs period in my opinion.

    Rom upgrade for thunder/24

    Hello-- I've got a supermac thunder/24 in my Q950. I was wondering if someone would be willing to burn me a few rom chips with either the 3.0 or 3.1 rom. Mine currently has I believe the 1.601 rom (need to double check) and I'd like to get it up to the latest rom. I'd be willing to pay for the time and parts if someone is willing to hook me up!
  27. Yes it should be easy. It there a recommended tool that I can use as disk tool? It would be nice to repair the file system if the hard drive has no hardware damage. I want to know what was on the computer. I think if I do a new installation of the OS I can not keep programs and personal data that was on the hard drive? I am new in this mac area
  28. Unfortunately not. Fortunately, though, the CC has a 1.44 meg floppy drive, which means it's easy to make floppies for it using a PC
