    Macintosh Quadra 840av

    I have this Quadra 840av board, it isn't working at this stage and I noticed two capacitors are missing on the bottom of the board suspected rough handling. On the underside on the battery end side; C399 C397 Really keen to fix this board up. Does anyone know what voltage/value they would be? Cheers AP

    Need soldering help, likely damaged board :(

    Do you have soldering flux? And clean it up with IPA, That'll help. It might be ok/not damaged - flux will help to clean it up, and maybe a small drill bit to hand drill it out. Cheers AP

    Portable Backlit - won't power up

    Portable Backlit - won't power up

    Afternoon all, I have this Backlit Macintosh Portable, it has been recapped professionally 2 years ago, and it was working 100%, 2 months ago when I last used it (removed the battery before I put it away) and this weekend I thought I'd have a play with, it won't fire up at all - not even chime or any display etc - just dead as. The battery is working in other Portable, there is power going to it. (I also have non-backlit portable that is working 100% as well) Where shall I start to get it powered up? Cheers AP
  8. G'day all, I have two PowerBook G4 1.67ghz 17" DLSD Laptops. One of the 17" battery is no good/has less than 2 mins of charge left on it and other one has good charge. Saw the prices online of what is available and its too expensive. I was wondering if anyone has any success re-celling those? Cheers AP

    PowerBook 5300ce - 8.1 or 8.6?

    The prices has definitely gone up since I last bought it.. See link; https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/HOT-SD-Micro-sd-Memory-Card-to-2-5-44pin-IDE-Adapter-Reader-For-Laptop/281569695767?hash=item418edc9817:g:BNsAAOSwbqpT10Z8 Cheers AP

    PowerBook 5300ce - 8.1 or 8.6?

    The first upgrade I would get 44pin to SD adapter for what its worth. 8.6 you might find it sluggish - My 1400/166 is on 8.1 and its comfortable, but 3400/240 is on 8.6 its perfect. Cheers AP

    LC 630 DOS-Compatible "Adapter Board"

    The non DOS Compatible board has missing components on the board - I can show you the difference if you like. Cheers AP

    I second that one of mine is broken as well - Ive thought about soldering up bypass wires - theres roughly 3 wires torn. Cheers AP

    LC 630 DOS-Compatible "Adapter Board"

    To hunt one down (I'm not being negative) the chances is very slim to find the adapter board. You're better off getting complete board. Cheers AP
  15. G'day all, I have this PowerBook G3 PDQ which the LCD needs replacing badly - its horrible wash out. I saw this thread for Pismo LCD swap - does anyone know what the best next alternative swap would be? Thank you Cheers AP
