    AppleCD SC - m2850

    I just bought an American 100-120v AppleCD SC m2850 off ebay. Thing is, here in Australia its 240v - does anyone know how to convert from 120v to 240v? I vaguely seen someone doing that a few years ago Cheers AP
  2. I think the DOS side was funny with large amount of memory - I think I recall it'll do between 16mb and 32mb but no more. Cheers AP

    30pin/8mb RAM sticks

    G'day all, Not sure if this has been done before but people I've spoken to said they've heard of it but I cannot find any information of it. Has anyone replaced or modify to enable 8mb 30 pin sticks? to suit such as Quadra 700 etc. Well aware of 16mb that is available. But 8mb is rare as, so only solution is to make one!? Cheers AP

    PowerBook Duo 270c

    I've just obtained another logic-board and recapped before it was fired up. Fired it up - Happy Mac icon shows, then "Welcome to Macintosh" comes up, then the screen goes all black!!!! ( I would say just before extensions loads, at that point it goes all black - I haven't seen any extensions to load at all) What could be wrong? Cheers AP

    Quadra 700 - RAM Chips

    Evening all, I have an battery cancer Quadra 700 here, it wasn't that bad and it was still fresh when I obtained it - it'll power on but has death chime. I found loose connection/corroded one of the RAM chips and repaired/added solder on it, it no longer powers up/no chime etc. So I am thinking about removing all RAM chips off the board, and use donor RAM chips from memory stick which I have found that matches original ones (its 16x 512k = 8mb on that stick and pull off 8x 512k=4mb). Came to think about it - since Quadra 700 has 8x 512k chips = 4mb. Could I replace it and place in 8mb instead of 4mb and hope use 128mb and would show 136mb in total? (or it'll read only 132mb as per factory) Just a theory - if those will work or not. Cheers AP

    Suprise found in a Quadra 700

    PowerPC is bonus to have in Quadra 700 - it is under powered but its good enough for apps/games under 68k coding - I love having PPC in my Q700 Cheers AP

    Colour Classic - should I or not

    I have this Colour Classic Logic board that hasn't been recapped. I've tried firing it up - it came up with death chime but no video (which might be RAM at fault) It has been washed through-fully twice and final wash with ISO and its very clean - no marks between ram chips etc. Has anyone came across to Colour Classic that hasn't been recapped to throw chime of death but works after recap? Just don't want to recap it and find out it still has chime of death after recap. (due based on my experiences with LC boards that still has chime of death after recap and don't want to waste time) Cheers AP
  8. I find it easier to install OSX.4 first then OS9 on the top - you can install both OS on the same HDD or seperate HDD. Cheers AP
  9. Loving my G4 MDD - it was originally dual 1ghz FW400, upgraded it to Dual 1.42ghz with Copper Headsink, Sonnet SATA PCI Card with m.2 SSD HDD, 2gb RAM maxed out - damn this mac is a beast.. Running OSX.5.6 and Mac OS 9.2.2. Really keen getting PowerBook G4 1ghz as well Cheers AP

    Suprise found in a Quadra 700

    Daystar/Apple PowerPC 601 card? Any pics of the card inside it? My Quadra 700 has Apple PowerPC 601 card in it as well which was originally surprise find in Quadra 950 which I took it out and put it in Quadra 700. Cheers AP
  11. How did you go? Cheers AP
  12. The IIci has 2 banks. Put all 4 memory sticks in 1st bank (identical the better) and try that. They can be funny to try boot up with 2 or 3 sticks. You need to fill each bank up. Also - has the logicboard been recapped? Cheers AP

    LCIII with no sound

    more commonly after recap - the sound chip is likely to be shortened due cap leak Cheers AP
  14. So if the speaker jack is not "shorted" it wont have external sound right? Cheers AP
