    Powerbook 5300c Power Issue

    So I swapped the caps on the power board, and am still having the same issue. The only one i didn't replace is that tiny electrolytic. I guess I need to replace that one as well? The symptoms are strange. Is there any way to jumper the PMU board to power it on? I wonder if there is because that could eliminate some of the possible causes. Thanks, IlikeTech

    Powerbook 5300c Power Issue

    I guess I'll just swap them all out!
  3. Hi, I was recently given a PowerBook 5300c. I resoldered the power connector, but that didn't help. The issue I'm having is that most of the time, when I plug it in, the sleep light comes on, and the power key does nothing. I can't get it to boot. I pulled the PRAM battery, but that didn't change anything! Thanks!

    Craving the companionship of a cool Color Classic

    It broke in the same place mine did. I was able to fix mine with abs cement, which is really a solvent. It looks pretty decent. Is that the only break? Those crappy packing jobs really do a number on the systems. Hopefully it was insured?

    Color Classic doesn't boot off external HD

    It's cause when you do that it has a driver.

    Sounds good. It's created by whatever formatting software you use. The disk image I sent Evie is made with a Lido driver image, the one linked on the site.

    Okay so some important info is that you can't just DD a raw HFS filesystem to the card. You need a driver as well. http://www.codesrc.com/mediawiki/index.php/HFSFromScratch These are the instructions I used to create the Image after installing 7.6 with BasiliskII. IlikeTech

    Mac Rom Enhancer - Any idea what it did?

    The two 27128 EPROMs add up to 32k of storage in addition to the stock Apple ROMs which are installed on it.
  10. @patatas Um I think you just resurrected a thread from over two years ago and that person hasn't been on in over two years. I doubt you will get a reply.

    I doubt that kit has a system on it. It only adds an additional 32K of ROM!

    3D Print Replica HD 20 SC Enclosure?

    Hmm that would be great. I wonder, what thickness acrylic do you want? The laser can do up to 1/4 inch easily.

    3D Print Replica HD 20 SC Enclosure?

    I mean the clip should just stick through the front, so that should be fine. Hmm.

    3D Print Replica HD 20 SC Enclosure?

    If it's just a single RJ45 that should be really easy. I might be able to do it as well!

    3D Print Replica HD 20 SC Enclosure?

    Yea I tend to agree about the hard drives. That would be so cool. Opening one to just swap the top case is unlikely to hurt the drive. I have access to a copy of Rhino, which is what my father uses for laser modeling. By port bezel, you mean the little piece of plastic that covers the card slot if no card is installed?
