    Laserwriter Pro 630

    I finished recapping the comms board in my LW Pro 630 and now it is working once again! I still need to replace the caps on the DC controller board but at least it is working now that the communication board is resurrected. As soon as my next shipment from DigiKey comes in, I'll get the two caps on DC controller swapped out and she should be like a new printer. I have connected the MiniDin-8 to my Apple IIgs, and the ethertalk to the network. I configured ethertalk to my Raspberry Pi running A2SERVER and then shared it via CUPS to all of the modern computers in the house. The computers that I have in this house that can all print to this printer without changing wires are as follows: Apple IIgs (GS/OS 6.0.4) Mac SE (7.0.1) Mac Color Classic (7.0.1) iMac 5,1 (10.7.5) Macbook Pro (2011) Macbook Pro (2008) Macbook (2017) As soon as I can get the Laserwriter drivers installed, I'll be adding my Powerbook 540c to the list.
  2. Dear members I recently acquired an SE/30, a long time I've been trying to get a hold of one. There are a lot of issues with it and the logic board is a huge problem but I want to start with what I can potentially do on my own. So, this machine has been opened up a number of times. The internals certainly suggest this. My question I would like to restore this machine to as original a state as I can and for me that means the internals. Has anyone gone about restoring the innards and potentially figured out which paint to use? Spray paint I guess but rather than referring me to amazon, well you can but, I am in Poland so ordering from them is expensive. I am trying to understand if there is a chemical base to the paint that I should avoid or certainly use, what you would be the characteristics and is there any specific prepping I should concern myself with? Any thoughts? Kind regards —Alex Santos
  3. Hello I thought I would come here to ask as most of you are surely more learned than I am. I have taken apart a Color Classic and would like to do a complete cleanup. I have properly discharged the CRT and the machine is in pieces right now. For now, I would I have some basic questions. Should I recap the analog board? Never done it but I have soldered in the past. Is it safe to clean the CRT and potentially the analog board. I have a can of air but potentially I was thinking of using Isopropyl Alcohol and a q-tip. Maybe the folks on this forum can understand how particular I am being about cleaning this little guy up. Others might think it's weird but love for these little show pieces goes a long way, besides it's a lot of fun. Would love to get some advice. PS, I have all the proper tools and am using an ESD mat and wrist strap. Cheers! —Alex
