  2. hi! Long time lurker, first time poster. I've recently resurrected a Mac SE FDHD, which I bought on Craigslist for a mere $30. What's been done so far: 1) recap motherboard 2) recap analog board 3) recap PSU 4) added SCSI2SD 5) replaced 2.5MB RAM SIMMS with 4MB RAM 6) replaced solder on Yoke connector on analog board 7) retrobrighted case The machine works and boots really fast. However, I've noticed that there are now intermittent horizontal lines seem to appear and disappear. It's almost as if the screen is having tiny seizures. I'm suspecting a solder connection on the analog board, but maybe I'm overlooking another possibility. Any ideas? Minor issue1 : When using the floppy drive, on first boot, the drive seems to work normally. Booting to desktop from a barebones System 6.0.8 disk takes about a minute. On subsequent boots, however, boot time takes upwards of 5 minutes. Has anyone experienced this sort of weirdness? Minor issue 2: the lettering on the front of the case is worn. Are there any options for re-lettering the case? Thanks!

    Replacement part on Analog Board

    Hello, unfortunately the vertical adjustment pot on my Mac SE analog board broke does anybody know where I can get a compatible replacement, many thanks!
  4. 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).

    Mac SE SuperDrive Sad Mac 000f 000c

    Hello, I am need of some help regarding how to start troubleshooting my Mac SE SuperDrive Model M-5011, 2.5mb ram, 100mb hdd It has been working for about 4 years and today it stopped working. I tried to update the OS from 7.0.0 to 7.0.1 and it said my drive may be corrupted as a warning and canceled the installation. I then restarted the Mac and I receive a Sad Mac error 0000000f 0000000c. I have looked up the error and have not been able to find online exactly what it means. I have found that it could be a nothing error, but not sure what that means or where to go with that. It could also be the SWIM. I am unable to boot from the internal floppy and I am unable to boot from the hard disk. It reads the disk and spins the hard disk then I get the Sad Mac. My first thought is to take apart and check to make sure the PRAM didn't explode (as it has been dead). Then clean board (some forums say with water and let dry by waving in air). Replace the battery and try it. From there, not to sure. Any ideas would be great. Thanks, Justin Fousek
  6. StuffIt 3.5 can’t see some .sit fires. I tried to install Aladin StuffIt 5.something and I don’t have 8mb or RAM on my 4mb SE. is there another software repository where everything for 68k is stored in floppy format (.dsk)? I am using SCSI2SD and Floppy Emu. Thanks.
  7. I recently picked up a Macintosh SE for $5. The hard disk was dead, as I expected. I put in a boot disk and turned the computer back on. However, I soon realized I was using a System 1.1 Boot disk, which is not compatible with the SE. I don't have an ADB mouse/keyboard, only a 128k/512k/Plus keyboard and mouse. I tried pulling out the disk (I didn't know about the pinhole by the disk drive when I was doing this) , and it came out. I noticed that a small metal bracket is now in the middle of the floppy drive. Is this normal? I noticed it moves upwards when the mac is turned on. I am having someone make a system 6.0.8 boot disk, and I want to know if the disk drive needs to be repaired before I can use the boot disk. If it's just a "cosmetic" problem, I can still use the drive fine by pushing up the metal piece. Thanks in advance
  8. By posting this inflammatory thread I know the flames will rage high! So let it burn! Ha! Lets throw hats and chew the fat, discuss about experiences and techno-babble, and explain why it is to you. I surmise that the SE\30 will rank high, though it is not without its problems: Recapping and Cap Goo Trace Rot being the worst of them. But the SE does not have these problems though they have most of the same components. Then you have the Classic and Classic II. Though the Classic will rank well along with the SE as a 68K machine, the Classic II is another issue altogether. Then there are the 128K, 512K, 512Ke and Plus. Many good things can be said about these machines, but the biggest put down I guess will be the analog board and the issues they bring. The Beige Case can also be an issue in yellowing as well but there were a Platinum 512Ke and Platinum Plus as well. I own the 512Ke, Plus, SE\30 and the Classic II - all with their pluses and minuses and think that for their designs, they were and still are great machines. Though my first Mac was a Mac IIcx (which was later modified into a Mac IIci), my first Classic Compact Mac was a 512Ke with a SCSI/RAM/16MHz Accelerator from I believe Dove Board. Then I got a SE and a SE\30 a few months after that. And from there my collection grew. The Classic II I recently found in the trash (Summer of 14) and I rescued and repaired it - my first Compact Mac Repair in about 20 or so years! Care to thrown in a PowerBook? Explain why it fits. The Duo 210 if thrown in fits between the SE\30 and the Classic II, as all three has the 16MHz 030. The Mac Portable lines up with the Mac SE. I got a lot more to say and share but I'll post it later and end this here. This is just an introductory post to get you guys posting.
  9. I recently bought and repaired a Mac SE - but whenever it boots, about a third of the screen is blurry. I assumed it was a logic board problem, but testing both the SE board in an SE/30 (which worked fine) and the SE/30 board in the SE (which produced the lines) revealed that it's actually an analog board issue. I've already replaced any leaky caps to no avail. Any ideas?
