  1. Macintosh "Case Cracker"

    I remembered seeing one of these in another building but not knowing what it was at the time. Now that I know what they are, I had to go back and get it! Seems to be in pretty good condition.
  2. SE/30 logic board large capacitors

    C2 is Audio Power Filter, C11 is +5V Supply Filter
  3. Howdy! So I have this old Lisa 2/5....

    That is an interesting power supply. Looks like a DataPower 1.8A PSU just based on the model but it doesn't have Apple's P/N stamped on it. Maybe an early one?
  4. Howdy! So I have this old Lisa 2/5....

    Looks like a Macintosh XL/Lisa 2 converted to Macintosh XL. It might not be a proper conversion just based on how the display looks, but I could be wrong.
  5. Macintosh SE - Dashed Line, No Boot Chime

    Could you perhaps get a picture of it? It might be helpful. I'd take a guess that the problem is with the Analog board but usually you'd still get a startup chime.
  6. MacCon IIsi SE/30 Not Working. Any Ideas?

    So that didn't work, either I've got two power supplies that have the same issue or something else is going on. The picture is a bit crooked on this one as well, I think I bumped the video board or something. I'll have to figure out how to fix that later.
  7. MacCon IIsi SE/30 Not Working. Any Ideas?

    Hmm, I have another SE/30 missing a logic board. Maybe I'll try putting everything in there to test it before I recap the PSU.
  8. MacCon IIsi SE/30 Not Working. Any Ideas?

    I can't remember the IDs off the top of my head now, but first I had it set to both jumpers on (how it came), then I changed it to both jumpers off because I saw someone else using it that way, but neither way seemed to work. Gauge Series SlotInfo did not see the card.
  9. I recently acquired an Asante MacCon IIsi SE/30 network card, but I can't seem to get it to work. When attempting to install the Asante drivers, it fails to detect the card. When I try to run the Asante Troubleshooter, the system crashes with a "bus error". The troubleshooter runs with extensions disabled, but does not detect the card. TattleTech does not detect the card. The card is fully seated, the back panel is connected properly, the card appears undamaged and has no residue on it. I can't say for sure the card was functional when I got it, but I have no reason to believe it shouldn't have been. I'm not entirely sure if the SE/30 is the problem either, since I don't have another functional one to test it with. It also gives me a bus error if I try to use the MultiModule screensaver in After Dark or start a game in SimCity 1.0, if those are an indicator of anything. Any ideas?
  10. Here's a new one...

    Yep, I've been searching eBay for them for the past month but never found any. Discovered this one was included in the SE/30 but wasn't in the description. Sadly it doesn't have 10Base-T, only 10Base2 and AUI. Hopefully that AUI adapter I ordered works for it.
  11. Here's a new one...

    So I ordered an SE/30 off eBay last week, and it just got today. Opened it up, looked to be in pretty good condition. Fully sealed in bubble wrap, no damage from shipping (although the FedEx guy was putting the note on the door as he knocked, didn't even bring the package with him). The Apple badge on the front was missing, but that's fine, I have plenty of those. Boot it up, got vertical lines and no chime. I popped open the case and began to remove the network card (the reason I bought it mostly) and found it was a MacCon IIsi SE/30. Mystery solved there. I fully removed the network card for now, then I removed the logic board. I looked over the board a bit. It's my first SE/30 board with a socketed processor, and the caps were interesting as well. They didn't appear to be visibly leaking yet. It also had a patch wire on the bottom that looked standard. I swapped the RAM out with known working SIMMs just to see if the solution was as easy as that. I go to put the logic board back in to test and right as I'm putting it back in some sort of wasp/hornet comes peeking out of the place where I'm about to put the logic board. I have no idea how it got in there. My only theory is that it crawled in through the floppy drive and has been there for a while. Maybe I'll get over my childhood fear and go back into the room someday.
  12. AOX DoubleTime 16 - Info needed

    Well I'm guessing it only happens if you have the extension installed, additionally most users were reporting that it completely broke AppleTalk, so you might test that as well, although you probably still need the extension.
  13. AOX DoubleTime 16 - Info needed

    It's possible that the 12 pin H202 header could be for video - I've seen it before - but it seems like the card alone isn't capable of it. MacWorld didn't make any mention of it in their review, and neither did InfoWorld in their brief mentions of it. Users on an old forum mentioned a video connection, but that was as far as it went. Additionally they mentioned a software version (v2.32), as well as issues using the card with System 7 (possibly not related to the software version I mentioned prior).
  14. SE/30 SCSI Not Detected

    So I gave a good washing, but it didn't seem to do any good. Actually I thought I ruined it at first, since I was getting simasimac when I booted it up, but then I found some unseated RAM when I opened it back up (and then more the second time I opened it back up). I ordered a replacement SCSI chip that should be here by the end of the week, just in case that's the issue. Can anyone help me a little with testing connections against the schematic? I've looked over the BOMARC and the Apple versions of the schematic and tried testing a few points, but I guess I'm having trouble making sense of the schematics.
  15. Branching PowerKey ADB Cable?

    Does anyone know anything about the PowerKey Classic's ADB cable? Here's the diagram they show from the manual: I've got one coming in a few weeks, but it doesn't appear to include the cable. Would just using a simple passive S-Video splitter work?
