  1. Any chance the Asante Card is conflicting with the Nubus Pivot? The Asante Maccon manuals talk about the need to swap a jumper to change the address setting when installing them aside Radius Pivots (say in a IIsi). I had this issue on a IIsi I was installing an Asante card with a Radius card. Appreciate that Iici is not the same type (Nubus vs PDS) but could that be a possibility why it not comes up?.

    Radius pivot 0379 Monitor Issue

    Finally, about there (a minute later, all good and pivoting fine).

    Radius pivot 0379 Monitor Issue

    So, an update on this project. I got some more time to re-check things and tried the 0379 Color Pivot LE with my SE/30 Color Pivot card again recently. Here's what I got at first try... but leaving things for a bit of time, I started to notice a bit of a pattern and turning up the brightness/contrast seemed to speed things up... So as it warms up, we get a better picture until perfect after about 5 mins... Thoughts on what the issue is - I presume it's the monitor, not the card? NB: Earlier post with the purple/blue line was the SE/30 Pivot card (not color) which outputs on Blue until you wire R-G-B lines to get monochrome pivot on some monitors (LCD etc).

    FleaBay Find: Duo 230 with DuoDock and a CL SE/30

    Link seems not to work, but I managed to unpick it and I think this is what you were referencing as first hit (among others on a similar thread). https://aronnelson.com/aron/duoTick.html This, like others, identifies C28 as the culprit. Will give it a go. NB: The PowerBook Duo 230 is going well again. Did a strip and reassemble after I noted some comments re importance of one of the screws needing to be in solid to help grounding or something. Working like a champ now. If only the Duo Dock was that easy to get going! Ta

    FleaBay Find: Duo 230 with DuoDock and a CL SE/30

    Do you recall what tests you did to fix the error (eg multimeter check on traces etc or are we talking transistor/chip level replacement that got it going)?

    FleaBay Find: Duo 230 with DuoDock and a CL SE/30

    Anyone tried to get a DuoDock working lately? I got one that was supposed to be working, but doesn't. Did a basic strip down, everything looks ok, not entirely sure where to start - was going to research what common issues are for the Duo Docks. Separately, my Duo 230 boots for 20-30 seconds then just stops. Sometimes it goes for longer, sometimes shorter. Not sure what is causing that, but see it seems to be common and might be IC/transistor related though the differing cut out seems to suggest heat related (as need to leave it off for 5 mins before I can coax it to boot again). Any thoughts from those who've had a play with Duos and their Docks.

    Any update on this? Looking to do something similar.

    Laserjet II ntx Error Lights on power up

    Do you mean the "High-Voltage Power Supply" per the Service Source manual, or was it on the DC board or DC power supply? (Haven't been inside the iintx for a while - recall it was quite a disassembly but I went all the way in to check everything as best I could.

    Laserjet II ntx Error Lights on power up

    I had similar scenario with my NTX. Did replacing the AC power block capacitor fix everything? Where is it located so I can test/replace?

    IIfx 16MB SIMMs -- Thanks Doug!

    Great work! I'd be interested in getting 8 simms if you do end up making a production run of these. I'm sure here must be some others on here after those SIMMS and have no way of producing their own!
  11. FYI - You can source 3D printed versions of these nowadays, both clear and platinum coloured. http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Apple-Macintosh-Color-Colour-Classic-LC575-Mystic-Panel-Laser-Cut-Rear-Cover-/222665321688
  12. Per the LC Series User Manual Macintosh LC Series/ Quadra 605 - tim.id.au there's a few to choose from. You could google for images to get a look at what they look like and whether they'll go with your LC 475: LC and LC II provide built-in support for many monitors, including: • Apple High-Resolution Monochrome Monitor (M0400) • AppleColor High-Resolution RGB Monitor (M0401) Rev 2 (M1297) • Macintosh 12-Inch RGB Display (M1296) • Macintosh 12-Inch Monochrome Display (M0400) • Macintosh Color Display (M1212) • Apple Basic Color Monitor (M9103) LC III, LC 475 and Quadra 605 provide up to 16-bit support on 12-, 13-, and 16-inch monitors and 8-bit support on 15- inch portrait and 21-inch monitors. LC III, LC 475 and Quadra 605 support all Apple monitors available at CPU introduction dates, including: [as above plus] • Macintosh 16-Inch Color Display (Macintosh LC III only) LC III, LC 475 and Quadra 605 support NTSC and PAL.
  13. Update: Fixed. Seems that the DB15->VGA cable I had was a Radius one (might explain the cycling of the LEDs as they have special monitor cable usually). A replacement 'standard' Mac DB15->HD-15 (VGA) I bought has it working fine now.

    Adding Wi-Fi to my Mac SE/30

    Very cool. Ordered the parts and thinking what other Macs this would be good to do on (maybe an early laptop?)
