    So, stupid question...

    Are the through hole caps on an SE/30 logic board plated through hole? If they are, how bad is it in the long run if those came out during recapping it? The computer boots and runs fine, just curious if I messed up, and how bad...

    DuoDock SCSI disk mode woes

    So I finally got most of the stuff I needed to get my Duo running, and I'm trying to move files to it from my 3400. I can't seem to get the DuoDock to go into SCSI disk mode. I'm using the right adapter, no I'd conflicts, but it won't go into disk mode. Any ideas? Thanks!
  3. Well my first Mac project in a while is two fold. I got a great deal on a Duo 230 with the dock. Both work well, except the dock top clips are broken and the slot door is missing. After a trip to Florida for various reasons, it's all up here with me in NC and I can finally get started. While I was down there I also picked up my SE/30 that I got on Craigslist last year. Never fired it up, just bought it and put it in storage because I was in a major hurry. I also put off taking it apart because I didn't have a long T-15 anymore. A year later...find out someone had already removed those screws...lol Got it apart, no battery boom boom, and it just needs a good cleaning and a recap. Should be good as new then! Also everything could use a tad of retr0bright...especially the eBay lbd and mouse...
  4. So I managed to score a great deal on a working Duo 230 and DuoDock! Just missing the ball and Retaining ring(which I'm hoping some kind soul on here might happen to have a spare btw lol) I have been dying to get one of these for many uears!nd, and get it up and running on my desk. (Of which I also need one, being a trucker) I'm going to rebuild the battery pack, and this thing is going on the road with me!!!

    PowerBook 3400c Keyboard woes

    Ok so I just got a good look at the contacts on the keyboard, there is almost nothing left of the metal connections. Does anybody have a spare 3400c keyboard?
  8. No. What I would like to know is can I use a standard usb kvm. Usually it has a built in hub and only provides usb keyboard and mouse over one usb cable. Like if I wanted to integrate an adb mac, say a Quadra 700, into my existing kvm setup. Thanks!
  9. Ooo. So...how about in a KVM configuration?!

    Guide for installing System6/7 on SCSI2SD from scratch?

    Only way I can think of to do this is to create a System 7.5.3 boot floppy set. Or get a disk tools floppy, plug the whole mess into the se/30 and see if maybe you can see the filesystem. if you can, then you can use lido on the mac itself, write the drivers, and make sure the system folder is blessed still.
  11. So I just picked up a PB 3400c while out on the road (truck driver lol, makes conquests a bit easier). It boots and all, but I've only got half the keyboard working. Now, I did remove the pram battery, it hadn't exploded, but when I removed the screw for the speaker, it looked a bit rusted. However the computer and memory expansion runs just fine...just no keyboard. I have no ADB keyboard or mouse to test. Any suggestions?

    The PB Duo 2300c that just wouldn't die...

    Recelling lol. That's what I get for typing this on a smartphone.
  13. So. In my new quests with vintage apple collecting, I seem to have acquired the most homely PB duo one has ever seen. The battery blew up long ago. The front filter on the LCD panel has become melted and distorted from sitting in an outside junk pile. The best one though...the power supply emitted sweet sweet magic black smoke while I was playing with it big time. But...it still boots and runs great. Now. I would like to find some accessories and maybe a new panel and a battery to recell. Any experience CE in this one lol?
