128K back from the dead

Recommended Posts

ah..a great day, indeed...was able to bring back a dead 128k from

macintosh hell...took it part...cleaned the heck outta it...via 409.

washed the motherboard in the sink...and let it dry...did some

re soldering...but will eventually re do the entire board....

 

replaced the analog board from a donor 128... and voila, it boots

 

get a kick when i go to the finder, and it reads 128k... what a hoot.

 

with an external floppy drive, to go with the internal one...it's back to

the days of floppy swapping mania.....strange with no hard drive.

 

installed a battery...and so far, it's holding up..

 

just got done playing missile command on it.....my G5 AND INTEL mac pals, look at me like I'm some sort of mac dinosaur....

 

it's always a treat, to bring any number of compact macs, back from the dead...even sweeter, when it's the original mac, that started it all..

 

such humble beginnings the 128k....

Congratulations! Good for you.

 

You double posted though, go back and delete the other one.

 

With two floppy drives, you should not have floppy swapping "mania" just routine floppy swapping.

 

Which system are you running?

yeah, ye olde double post bug-a-boo...sheeesh..

 

 

ummm, I'm running mac OS 3.0 on the 128k....

 

if i can dig up OS 1.0 I'll run that......

 

anyhow, still running...even after turning on and off, many times, over the

past few hours....but who knows....she might wanna take the day off....

 

Once I finish going over the MB...these glitches, should go bye bye..

 

on the flip, it's a 24 year old mac.....so I'll cut it some slack
