    Sony 800k Drive Repairs

    Sorry to jump in but, my BOTH of my 800k drives are not working! I'm not sure where to start, The drives symptoms are that the first drives head doesn't move and on the second one the read/write head & disk motor are not moving. So I guess that means no 800k drives for me. At the moment I've got 4 things I need to fix: 1. Get both disk drives working 2. Get System 6.0.3 disks working (and make copy's) 3. Get the hard drive working (The drive itself and the SCSI ID No. selector) 4. Get the ImageWriter II to advance the ribbon cartridge. And eventually get: 1. A matching System Saver (Platinum) 2. A FloppyEmu 3. An Apple branded Dial-Up modem (Or get a cord for my current one) So, yeah. -Jack

    Legit "barn find" Apple IIe

    I recall a similar event happening to me when i picked up my two Apple //e's (Both with 1 Disk ][ Drive, 1 Monitor II, 1 80Col Card, 1 Box of Apple ][ floppy's (came with computer when new), and all of the original manuals (along with Disk][, Monitor II, and (I think) 80Col). There were also two expansion cards, one is a "PRinterface" (Made by Practical Peripherals w/ manual) and the other being a"Printech II" (Made by SMT Systems Manufacturing Technology w/ manual. And lastly a C. Itoh Dot Matrix printer (w/ Manual). Sorry about the tangent, anyway when I flipped the switch the power supply made a high pitch "charging" sound and lit up both lights. The monitor did flash as well like you said.

    How to spot a counterfeit Capacitor

    That would be great! Will be interesting to see the results.

    Mac Classic II randomly restarts

    Mac Classic II randomly restarts

    I know this thread is kinda dead but, My Macintosh Plus does the same thing when I move it. I think it’s the connector between the Analog and Logic Board. Not sure if it still does it, but it's been a while since I’ve moved it so I don’t think so.

    PRAM battery

    Well, they are coin cell batteries. The battery my Mac Plus uses looks like this:

    PRAM battery

    I know this thread is kinda dead, but I've always wondered if there is a rechargeable PRAM battery (specifically the 4.5v) Has somebody encountered something like that?

    BSR Phone-Modem

    Dialing into some BBS’s and maybe some other things, I’ve also been looking at Apple modems. I’d like one, it would complement my setup nicely.

    BSR Phone-Modem

    I’m posting because I’ve seen you could use a “Hayes Compatible” type modem with a Macintosh, I was wondering if it would work. Is 1200 Baud enough? Thanks

    BSR Phone-Modem

    I have a BSR modem I bought off eBay, I believe it's 1200 Baud because the model number is MD-1207. I could be wrong, but I think it's a good guess.

    System Saver And Hard Drive Enclosure

    I'm not sure what my HD's SCSI ID# is, I read it goes from 7 - 0. And 7 is the computer itself. I think it's #0 but then it's the least prioritized number. Just for reference, Macintosh's cannot dasychain floppy drives? I'm' also on the lookout for the "Inside Macintosh" books, were they common? Or will I have trouble looking for a copy? Thanks, Jack

    Classic Mac OS will survive Y2038 (and maybe longer)

    Well then, I should probably learn how. Just to carry on.
