I just got a Macintosh SE/30 a few days ago and want to do an LCD conversion with original hardware (none of that silly Raspberry Pi or Mac Mini board business). CRT is damaged, so perfect excuse for a fun project (hopefully I don't eat those words). I would imagine this type of mod involves pairing the right screen and card together (computer came with a Radius FPDSE30 if that helps at all).
Hello I have a few vintage macs and there are two that I would particularly like to connect to a more modern (likely a used 10 year old) LCD. So I have about 5 different adapters on hand and that help get XGA+ or something else out of these machines. I have a Quadra 950 (built in video) with PowerPC 601 card and a Power Macintosh 9600 with the stock video card. I can already run these two macs on a Sony GDM-C520 but I want to get them on an LCD because the image might be slightly sharper and prefer to dedicate the Sony for MAME emulation. --- I don't want specific model numbers that I should buy, I just want to know what the highest native resolution these two machines output and from there I think I can find a VGA display that can accomodate these two macs at a resolution output they both share. Short update: I went to everymac.com and found more on video out resolutions On Q950 video: By default, the Macintosh Quadra 900 only supports a single display, but a second one can be supported with the addition of a compatible NuBus video card. The onboard video can support 512x384 at 24-bit and 640x480, 832x624 and 1152x870 at 8-bit. With 2 MB of VRAM installed, it can support up to 832x624 at 24-bit and 1152x870 at 8-bit. On 9600 video: *This video card supports a maximum resolution of 1600x1200 at 24-bit. It also supports 512x384, 640x480, 800x600, 1024x768, 1152x870 and 1280x1024 at 24-bit. *IX-Micro Twin Turbo 128 video card with 8 MB The other concern might be the sync refresh rate. Should I worry about this? Should I get a display with a 1152x870 native resolution then. I don't care too much about 24 bit on the Q950. Kindest regards —Alex
Sorry if this is in the wrong section but I recently pulled out my PB 540 and decided to try fixing some problems. These are the problems its having: -Screen is cut off on lower part unless putting pressure on it. -LCD Cable has been cut a little -Audio doesn't work -Not sure if this is an issue but the screen begins to fade from all edges to black after a while. I uploaded a picture of the LCD needing pressure to actually work, and the hinge cable being cut. I figured since this is the only cable going to the LCD that maybe the connections to the audio had been cut on the ribbon cable? (There is fewer wire lines on the cut area, forgive me if I'm way off). Would the pressure problem be an LCD issue if anyone knows? Also I read about capacitors often going bad, should I check around for leaking capacitors? Thanks
Hello, I bought this display on ebay, since I sometimes want something less bulky than a 13" CRT to hook-up with my IIcx. It arrived last week and works just as promised. But it would be nice (and practical) to design some kind of casing that better mimics the Snow White theme? Suggestions on how to pull this off is truly appreciated! /Kristian
