  1. Has anyone tried replacing the two metal can electrolytic surface mount capacitors on the IIci cache card with tantalum equivalents?
  2. Hi, I'm new to this wonderful forum and I just got a really cheap IIci with a little bit of work to do. It seems the SMD-capacitors leaked a little bit and left some components with nasty green legs I already got replacement caps and removed the old ones very carefully. As I can see the pads are still in "working" order. Any recommendations for cleaning the green stuff?
  3. Hi All, Has anyone tried to 3D print feet for your IIci? When I got mine it had none and they appear to be hard to find... This seller sold his/her last set https://www.ebay.com/itm/Rubber-Foot-Macintosh-IIci-IIcx-Quadra-700-Vintage-Apple-Case-Bumper-Feet-/143139575183?_trksid=p2047675.m43663.l10137
  4. HI All, I went to button up the replacement SeaSonic PSU in my IIci chassis thinking I still had a working fan but it is nearly dead. When I fire up the machine with the PSU lid open I can see the fan trying to move but it never started spinning. If I give it a bit of a flick it starts to spin and work fine. On restart though it has the same behavior. I even let it run for several hours to see if it stopped misbehaving and it did not. WHat have you all used for replacements in your IIci? I tried searching the site and had little luck. THx!
  5. HI All, I have been working to get this machine back online... Today good progress was made getting a SeaSonic PS wired up as the IIci PS was not functioning: The IIci fires up and I have been using the drive that came with the with 7.1 installed. I also got a Radius PrecisionColor 8-Xj video card and Asante ethernet card: With both cards installed and my monitor moved to Radius, I get this on-screen and the machine appears to have booted however I can't access the drive nor is the cursor present. When I move the monitor back to the motherboard video, it works fine. When I open the Monitors CP, it only detects the on-board video. Running Slot Info also does not detect the video card. As to the Asante, Slot Info see it however I can't get it to work: When I plug a video or ethernet card into my PDS slots on the SE/30 or IIsi, the cards just work. This does not seem to be the case with these NuBus cards. I thought I might need a CP or init so I searched around and found RadiusWare 3.3 (nubus) which can bee seen in the screen grab immediately above. I installed only the init and during boot, I can see a radius icon being loaded with an "x" through it, however after boot (with video coming from the motherboard), Monitors CP only sees on-board video as you can see from Slot Info. As to the Asante, the reason you see MacCon in slots D and E is that one is the NuBus and the other is my Asante EN/SC which is working fine from the external SCSI connection and allowed me to copy the downloaded Radius bits to the IIci. Its LEDs light up however the working ethernet cable does not give me any activity on my functioning D-Link 10/100 switch. Perhaps I need some software here? I ran out of day after trying to get the Radius working. What is this NuBus N00B missing here? THx
  6. So I recently won an "untested" IIci and it arrived yesterday. I knew there was a good chance untested meant it would not start up and that happened. The reason I went for this one was that from the photos the board looked in OK shape. What I could not see from the photos whether the PRAM battery had had a meltdown.... Luckily this circa '91 beauty was still intact! Here is the board: And the easter egg signatures: I will get this recapped but I am hoping to try firing this up with PS from my IIsi that now has a SeaSonic PS contained within...more to come on this. My plan is to run my Daystar 601 in this machine. I'd like to get an ethernet and video card to go along with it.
  7. Losing my mind, y'all... Got a Iici last week in great shape (though I really wish it had the programmer/reset switches for aesthetics). Included was 20 MB RAM, a Radius PrecisionColor 8xj, and a Quantum Trailblazer ~850 MB SCSI HD. What was interesting about this (in that I'd never seen this before) is that it had a "Quality Tested & Certified" sticker from APS Technologies with a barcoded serial number. I was able to temporarily install my Turbo040 card and Apple NuBus NIC before happily installing 7.5.5. I installed the Radiusware stuff but was stuck at 640x480. But that's a minor inconvenience for now... I wasn't quite sure was APS was or why FWB, Lido, or HD SC Setup wouldn't detect the drive (but clearly it's bootable). MacEnvy, TattleTech, etc all identified the CharisMac (Anubis?) driver so I downloaded the Anubis tools, which detected the drive and I attempted to change the drive icon, of all things... Whether that upset the SCSI gods, I don't know, but here's the deal: I can't boot (normal, Extensions Mgr or Extensions Off) from this drive or a floppy with the HD connected. PRAM Reset: no change Normal Boot: Extensions load without an issue, cut to blank desktop with MultiFinder and 040 menubar icon, then menubar, then bomb - "Finder - Unimplemented Trap" error and Restart Cmd-Shift Boot: Bombs on "EM Manager" as soon as the Extensions Manager loads, same error + Restart Shift Boot: same bomb/error Boot from Floppy (7.5.5 Disk Tools): same bomb/error, unless hard drive is disconnected, then it boots! So it's got to be the drive, but this isn't useful since I can't mount the drive after the system's booted. 24/32-bit Mode: no effect, same results Turbo040 vs. Cache Card vs. No Card: same results So it's either the driver on the drive or something like a corrupt Desktop DB file that is crashing Finder - that's my theory at this moment. But I can't mount the drive so I can't even format the damn thing - not that I want to... but if I have to, I'm dual-booting with A/UX like my other capable machines. The only things I've yet to try are to #1 mount the hard drive from the external SCSI port (perhaps it's a bus issue but unlikely), or #2 change the ID and mount in another machine. Can I get out of this unscathed? I don't know, but I'm confident Ye Old 68k Gurus can answer the call to action! Thanks!
  8. I have a IIci that has been recapped but does not work without a Diimo 50mHz accelerator. However, I want to put a carrera in it. An 040 accelerator won't work because it needs the original 030 to initially boot I believe. So...I took of the 68030FE25B processor and ordered a 68030FE33C processor because it was quite cheap. (1) Does anyone know if this replacement processor will be okay? (2) Does someone have words of wisdom for replacement of these processors...you can see my poor removal job and 1 chipped off solder pad. Is there a good method to replace the chipped off solder pad?
  9. The IIci I recently picked up has a Radius PrecisionColor 8-24X installed for a graphics card. I am using a VGA adapter (Griffin MacPNP) as I no longer have any working Apple DB15 monitors. With or without RadiusWare installed, I can only choose 1152x882, or 1056x807 (WTF?). It believes I am using a Radius Two-Page Display and will not let me choose a different monitor type. I have tried all available jumper configurations for the adapter and it does not change anything, and this setting persists over OS installs (I have tried 7.1, 7.5.3, and 7.6.1) so I believe that this monitor setting may be stored by the card. Plugging into different monitors also does not change anything. Any monitor that cannot run at 1152x882 does not even attempt to sync with the signal (not even an "out of range" message... just "no signal"). Attached is a screenshot of what I am seeing in the control panel. I see that it mentions being able to use T or U to reconfigure the card. I don't have a manual to refer to for more details though, so I have no idea how to do it! I figured I'd try holding those keys at boot but nothing happens. Does anyone have any experience with these that could help me get some more resolution choices? I was hoping to run this with a monitor that tops out at 1024x768, which is still quite nice for a IIci.
  10. Per http://www.gla.ac.uk/~gwm1h/Error_Codes/Sad_Mac_Codes.htmlthis is a "$000F Reserved for Macintosh compatibility" issue. Any ideas what could be causing this? Have a stock standard Mac IIci, 12mb with 80MB hdd and ext Cd 300e attachedand terminated properly. Have noted the occasional lockup when transferring or mounting large (disk image) files. Any ideas welcome.
  11. OK ... so I've given myself a little project ... After cannibalising two IIci's and today sending the better board off to Uniserver for a recap I'm thinking about the next stage when I put everything back together... the internet. I've tried to research which NuBus card might be best to install, and got a little confused ... It's years (decades) since I played with a working Iici (which I loved at the time) ... a little rusty as to what used to be done in years gone by. As ever, eBay seems to be the best place to search, and various models are available, but I'm not sure which. Hoping someone here has achieved this, and how ... Any ideas/feedback welcome. Thanks
  12. So, I have a nice working Macintosh IIci running System 7.5.4 (yes, I have a copy). I am thinking of getting a colour printer off eBay. However, I also have a Macintosh SE FDHD (dual floppy) which I might like to print from in the future (running 6.0.8/7.0.1, or maybe 7.1/7.1.1 in the future). Any recommendations for a good, light (less than 10kg/20lb) colour printer? I also have a Canon PIXMA MG6220, and I tried following http://www.vintagemacworld.com/osxprint.html, but even test jobs sent from the Raspberry Pi I did it with didn't print even after ~5 minutes. If I could get the print server working it would be nice. Any ideas?
  13. Since the boards need recapping, I'll assume that the onboard video of my IIci's are Kaput! But it could be something else. I hook up my Macs to a Gateway 700e (I think) monitor using a Mac2VGA adapter. I have several kinds of these adapters, and they are all set to work with the IIfx's 24bit Apple video card and the LCs that I have AND they all work with the settings I have on them: 640X480 VGA or 800X600 SVGA with H-Sync, V-Sync and Composite on Green "ON". This setting works with the video card (the same Apple's 24bit video card as in the IIfx) in the IIci. But in removing the card, and putting the adapter on the Mac IIci's built in video - Nothing but a dark screen on both (semi) working IIci's. The video card works on both of them - monitor lights up and the flashing "?" inside the floppy disk shows up. The cursor is also there and the mouse can move it. Note: I did remove and threw out the PRAM battery as a precaution so they have no PRAM Batteries but they do turn on! So, in asking, is there something with the Mac IIci video I need to be aware of or are these the right settings and the built-in video is kaput until a recapping is done? As knowledgeable as I am in these old Macs, I should know this but I need.... help and verification. BTW - 1 Mac with the Daystar 040 has 20MB and the other has 8MB. This should be enough to have built-in video work. Right?
  14. Greetings, (this is my first post on 68kmla) I newly installed Mac Os 8 on my Mac IIci's 72gb external drive using resources patches and Wish i was(and not Born Again). Now it boots just fine and i find it significantly more stable than my old system 7.1 which was also somewhat stable. But what satisfies me the most is the fact that now i can access HFS+ file system. So i partitioned this large drive to get a large 69gb HFS+ storage drive and a 1gb HFS drive to boot Mac Os 8.1. What i am wondering now is about enhancing the responsiveness of the computer and the UI's speed: Will replacing the RAM SIMMs (two 4mb and six 2mb - 20mb) by eight 16mb SIMMs to have 128mb of RAM will do so, and is it worth it? I'm asking here for opinions because in the other hand -- if i don't get more ram, i would later (by the end of january) have the occasion to have a woking SE/30 or a Powerbook 150. I really am wondering what is the most worth it. I also put my IIci's configuration below: -Cache card on; -9gb Quantum internal drive w/ system 7.1 and 6.0.7 on it; -72gb HP external drive in an Optimac box; -20mb ram -8°24 GC -Asante ethernet card Thanks for replies
  15. I've been pulling out my old hardware and setting up a network. I have a IIci I've been setting up as a file server. It currently has a DaynaPort E/II-T NuBus Ethernet card in it (and a 50MHz upgrade) and I've been setting it up as an AppleShare 3 server to NetBoot a couple of IIgses and serve files. Right now I have 7.6.1 on it, and I'm trying to find some working drivers for the DaynaPort card. I downloaded 7.7.2 and I'm not getting any response in the TCP/IP control panel
