Apple IIc blinking power light

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

Had an Apple IIc for almost 3 years but it did not came with a power brick.

So I decided to buy a Toshiba charger transformed into a IIc power brick off eBay, the problem is when I'm turning on the computer the green power light is blinking and I'm not getting any startup beep. The disk drive is not running as well.  :'(

 

Any ideas ?

Best regards

How is the Toshiba PSU connected to it?

 

Check your connection and your PSU, I do not think it is strong enough to run a IIc. The IIc needs 12 - 15 volts, you can run off a Lead Gel Battery if in a pinch. It is a Power Hog. Check.this video out: 

 

Includes a pin out for the power port for you to verify.

Okay guys, sorry for the late response.

I’ve been very busy for the last few months but finally got a my hands on a multimeter :-)

 

Well everything seems to be okay concerning the 15V power pins. I guess there must be something wrong with the internal power converter :-(

Interestingly enough it sometimes seems to be starting up, floppy drive led is solid red and I can hear the speaker cracking a little bit but nothing more..

 

Maybe dead condos ?

Cheers

Hi,

Keep in mind that the power supply is connected to the internal one :

Not saying this is the issue, but as you have a blinking led some outputs are present...
