    SE/30 with Vertical Pinstripes

    I agree with Bolle, first thing first. But also more information here, similar to your problem, with stripes coming and going :
  2. Concerning the first issue, probably related to lubrication on the drive itself, can also eject motor being faulty (a small gear is often broken)

    800k Floppy drive question

    Yes, two switches, one for disk detection (right IIRC) , the other one for write protection. The disk carrier is pushing the switch when falling down. So pushing the switch down manually is a first step for troubleshooting your drive (should spin the motor)

    Sci drive not working

    Syquests are picky. Got a pair of them, easy to use with some units and not seen with others, yes i agree with Cory, have a try with softwares.
  5. Problem solved, removed the part from the SE/30 board and used it in the IIgs. The old part was shorted, no other problem found, IIgs is back to life.
  6. I will.. Found a similar part on the SE/30 board (reference is almost the same) and since i have a pair of Maxel bomb destroyed boards, can i removed this part to save the IIgs ?
  7. I have been asked to have a look at a IIgs with a clicking PSU. Upon inspection, the 5 volt rail for shorted to ground, in the beginning my first thought was that a capacitor was shorted, but in the end, and after lot of trial and error, the culprit was located. Problem is, i can't find any information online. The component is in the upper left corner of the board, near the ADB connector (L2 on the picture), here are a couple of pictures, part is still available ? what is the purpose of this part ? The good news is that the IIgs is now displaying the usual "check drive" message

    You won't be able to read or format 800k (Apple) disks using any USB modern drive, only 1.4 MB ones. Probably will work with PC stuff, but not for Apple.

    Apple CD SC question

    This item is prone to capacitors failure. IIRC audio can only be produced through a pair of speakers connected to the back of it.

    SCSI to SC cable

    Here it is. http://antinode.info/mac/port_scsi.html The cable is time consuming to built, but in a way better than the PCB. The PCB is bulky, and not easy to fit in the Portable case.

    Apple IIc Monitor Died

    Fuse can be replaced easily, no need to discharge anything.

    Mac Plus Ticking Noise...

    Yes can go wrong out of the blue, the opto-isolator is using an Infra red diode that can go wrong with time. more about it here: https://www.electronics-tutorials.ws/blog/optocoupler.html No way to test it, but pretty cheap and socketed. Located near the brightness knob on the bottom left of the AB.
