    Macintosh Portable error code

    I agree above - usually first signs if messages like that you need recap it asap - dont use it. Cheers AP

    Need help identifying Macintosh portable card

    its a RAM Card - hard to say what size Cheers AP
  3. Why did you install to 50v 47uf caps? There is also axial caps on the board as well - they may need replacing to. 100% for sure the PSU does need recap - It has known it gets shorten to start it up on its own. Yes IIci/Quadra 700 PSU does fit on IIsi board - I've done that to eliminate the power on test/shutdown test etc. FYI - Maccaps is not 100% accurate some caps may be different as per spec so double check what you're replacing to same value. Cheers AP

    Fitting a SCSI2SD in a 68k Mac

    You are correct, if its under 7.6.1, it is (2gb is 7.1) and 7.5.5 is 4gb limit. If you're in 7.6.1 you can have more than 4gb/less than 128gb. On my PowerBook G3 Pismo is limited to 128gb, you have to format it externally to partition it to get bigger than 128gb (PBG3 has 256gb partitioned into 128gb each) I actually forgotten about the power from bus/powered externally - Will give that a go later today, SCSI2SD never came out from its enclosure since I got it. Cheers AP

    PowerBook 1400 CD ROM

    G'day all, I have 4x PowerBook 1400 CD ROM drives and neither works. What options do I have and does anyone know direct replacement for those? Any suggestions to get them working again? Cheers AP

    128MB RAM for PowerBook 3400 - Worth anything?

    I would if the price was right but I already have one. Yes it wont work in 3500 but if it could be a lucky one - it may work in 3500 with resister mod. Cheers AP

    Fitting a SCSI2SD in a 68k Mac

    Now this is the first... As I have external SCSI2SD for installs etc to go between macs to macs (its an image of 128gb of software and system installs etc, as standard format running system 7.6.1 and covers 68k and PPC). This listed Macs/Powerbooks that SCSI2SD v5 is working on; PowerBook 160 PowerBook 3400 PowerBook G3 PDQ PowerBook G3 Lombard Mac LC2 LC475 Quadra 700 Quadra 840av Macintosh IIci Macintosh IIsi Quadra 660av WGS 6150 PowerMac G4 MDD (Via SCSI Card) NOW.... PowerBook 1400 - fails to pick up SCSI2SD - not even one blink or anything... that is the first for me, have I missed something? Or something in the settings that I might've missed? Just that I would like to install some stuff on PB1400 as no CD ROM is working. Cheers AP

    Qaudra 840av - help needed, no chime, no video

    I am not sure, when I couldn't get it booted and nor chime etc... I was exhausted at that time and I thought I'd try again in couple of days later, but this time it was bench test with Power Supply connected to it (before that the PSU was still in the case), and pulled to minimal spec ram and VRAM was put in, and it fired up with video showing up - I must've done something not right or there could be a tiny amount of water somewhere which had dried up when I tested it again. But prior to testing it was dried up with an heater and left it on the bench vertical for 24 hours. But the main thing, its working 100%. I am just waiting for a new fan for the power supply to arrive as its very noisy - the more I use it becomes noisier and when its fitted I will get the nubus scsi cards to work. Cheers AP

  13. Good evening all, I've obtained Centris 610 over the weekend - nice little unit. Its 68LC040 20mhz - slowest 68LC040 Ive ever used - good enough for basic use. I do have a spare CPU in 25mhz 68040, I was wondering what the logicboard difference between Centris 610 and Quadra 610? Since Quadra 610 is running at 25mhz. Cheers AP

  15. I used those from old macs such as LC series and or Macintosh II series - they're the same. Cheers AP
