    John's Finds

    I googled the name and it turns out it's a company that seems to make stuff for woodturners. It seems the guy who runs it is named Jon Siegel. Now, idk if thats what it was used for/by (for all I know it could've been used by a company thats been out of business since the 90s) but thats what I think

    Farallon EtherMac Adapter

    I've done the correct process to install it (I think) I've read the instruction manual, but it still hasn't worked. The part where I seem to be encountering an error is when the manual says to set the zone to Daynaport or whatever, but when I go to change it, there are no zones. I know the ethernet works. The installation seems to work. I have no clue what I'm doing wrong.

    SCSI ethernet adapter help

    Does anyone else here have a Dayna Pocket SCSI/Link? I've tried to install mine on multiple devices, but it seems the drivers or something doesn't work. I've read through the manual multiple times and made sure I did everything right. Can anyone give help or tips?
  9. Damn, I may just get a ethernet card just to try this out!

    Macintosh TV questions

    Thanks for the link! Also, can you please tell if the Mac TV supports CD-R? I'm about to get a caddy and haven't tried it before

    Macintosh TV questions

    Can you send a link to download the restore for the Mac TV? I'm planning on restoring mine and I kinda need the cd. Ps. on the tuner card there's a small board on it, it's probably old and very corroded. Mine was so corroded when I picked it up to put it back in the machine a cap or two fell. Luckily, the cards pretty cheap on eBay. You should probably buy sockets (I think that's what they are called) so if you need to replace it again, it's just a matter of ordering a new one and putting it in.

    HDI-20 Repair?

    I was trying to lift the board to get a better view than one of the ribbon cables to the motor broke when I was trying to remove it.

    HDI-20 Repair?

    I've got a Powerbook Duo 2300c that has a dead hard drive. I want to restore this since this is kinda easy to repair, especially since it uses 2.5 IDE instead of 2.5 SCSI, so I can just put in a cheap 2.5 IDE to CF converter and install MacOS and these Powerbook Duos are quite rare. The only problem is the floppy drive. I have an HDI-20 floppy drive, and I have an Emachines dock (which has an HDI-20 port) and a micro dock. However, I've only tried it once on the emachines dock. It said it couldn't read the disk (even though there was no disk in there) and when I pressed eject, it popped and the computer turned off (it was plugged into the wall) and I haven't tried it since. I haven't been able to try it with the micro dock because one of the metal leg things is broken and it doesn't seem to want to go in. It could be that the drive needs to be lubricated, or I may need to repair one of the docks. Can anyone help me? Also, can someone show me how to lubricate the HDI-20 drive, just want to get it out of the way. Also, can you use Petroleum Jelly/vaseline to lubricate floppy drives? I read somewhere that it works really good in a pinch.

    ADC to DVI adapter Power supply?

    I have an ADC to DVI adapter that I think is broken. It seems to cut out and glitch at random times, and the USB works (at first), then it seems to die. I've done some reading, and I saw an ifixit post where they say that every 2 years the power supplies die (post). I'm pretty sure its the adapter because I've tried it with different Studio displays and it seems to do the same thing. I was wondering if anyone knows if the power supply or something else is to blame and how to fix it. Also, how do you disassemble the adapter?
