    400k Floppy Drive Lube Repair

    Cleaning and lubricating is a must, doesn't mean there is not another problem in the ejecting motor area.

    Powerbook 1400c lid rebuild options

    I will have a try at ABS cement on the underside, pretty solid once done and if you are using the same type of ABS (color, type) it will be more or less invisible. https://www.matterhackers.com/news/how-to-make-abs-juice-glue-and-slurry

    Apple ][ Plus Woes

    Most of the time is just a weak solder joint, but can also be broken.

    Apple ][ Plus Woes

    First, is the Psu delivering good outputs ? you should have +12/+5/-12/-5 volts. Have you got the beep from the speaker ? And the keyboard lamp on ? the video connector can be faulty, often is.

    Macintosh 512k sad Mac error help

    This is a Rom related fault code
  7. I bet the board will work without, SEs are bulletproof, so will probably survive the Maxell destruction.

    Dimensions of SE / SE/30 security lock

    I have a set of those in a drawer, can give you dimensions if required.
  9. Can be the Egret chip being contaminated, happened to me more than often. IIRC there is also a capacitor next to it and battery holder.

    Broken floppy drive?

    probably need lubrication, if you try booting the Quadra with the mouse button down, what happens ?
  11. For sure those capacitors are leaking. Look at the dusty area compared with the contaminated one where fluid has covered the board.
  12. Can be was is called a pass through terminator. So should work as a terminator, have one of those in a drawer, never used myself. The Plus is picky with Scsi, and only the very last logic board is playing ok with it. I will try to format the drive with another machine, then connect it back to the Plus. Keep in mind that the Plus will require also to set the interleave properly (3:1)
  13. I don’t think the connector on the back is a proper terminator. Are you sure the hard disk itself is ok ?

    Apple II Clone

    Found and repaired a set of two Joysticks. The first one a TG unit, the early connector was broken, converted it to the late one. The other was an IBM/PC, i converted it to Apple (two resistors for the switches, and the right connector) note the new label for my clone
