  1. The flaky and stripy video was a broken 26-pin LCD monitor cable. Has anyone had this problem, and how was it fixed? Where would you find this kind of cable today and what is it called?
  2. Question for those of you SE/30 owners who use a PDS video card with an external display. I have a Micron Xceed video card and grayscale setup. Grayscale works great on the internal CRT, but I've never used the DB-15 port also offered by the video card. I have a 15" Color VGA LCD that's about 10 years old. Would this adapter on Amazon be all that I would need? (Not sure how those DIP switches on the adapter are used in case like this though.) Note the horizontal scan rate mentioned in the Xceed manual page below of 31.5kHz, which seems rather odd (maybe common for Apple though?). Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Mac Monitor Database

    I came across this just now and it will surely be useful to somebody at some time. It's on archive.org at the moment. It's a listing from the archived Griffin Technology website of displays for the Mac (mostly CRT, it seems). Here is a sample of one such entry. Apple : 12" Color Display (M1299) Maximum Resolution: 512x384, 60 Hz Max Mac: Scan Rates: Horizontal scan: 24.48 Khz Vertical refresh: 60.15 Hz Bandwidth: 30.24 Mhz Mac Adapter: None Video Signal: Signal type: Analog Sync: Composite Physical Specifications: Type of connector: DB-15 Tilt & swivel base: No Net weight: 24 Dimensions: 12.2x14.4x10.2 Monitor Type: Fixed Frequency CRT Attributes: CRT size: 12 Image size: 8.08x6.02 Technology: Shadow mask Picture tube: Color Phosphor: P22 Dot pitch: Other Specifications: Energy saver: No MPR II compliant: Power consumption: Warranty (P/CRT/L): 1/1/1 Plug n Play: =energy.html> User Controls: [Analog] BR, CT =ctrls.html> http://web.archive.org/web/19970619083647/http://www.nashville.net/~griffin/monitor.html

    MO400 display

    My latest … An MO400 monochrome dispay. Owner said it would click when coming on and then nothing but no computer to test with. Hopefully I can get it going, total take apart to go on and then testing. Need a cable though, which cable do I need? I have a Quadra 950 that I should be able to plug it to. Very yellowed but that will be taken care of, will check all caps but can't change them now due to lack of soldering iron. I think I do need to connect it to a Mac for it to be tested. Initial power on with no computer attached shows steady Green LED.
  5. Hello I am thinking of purchasing an Apple Multiple Scan 17 Display. The seller describes the following behaviour and I am wondering if this is normal as he has no mac to hook it up to. When I turn it on, the LED lights up, it shakes as it turns on, turns off, the LED goes off. Selling as inoperable, visually impeccable - without a scratch on the screen and on the case. I don't have a computer to connect it to. Any recommendations on whether this is worth bidding on? I would not be able to repair it myself. Kindest regards —Alex

    Multiple Scan 20

    Last weekend I went on a mission to Phoenix. I was notified of an MS20 on eBay, which was for a good deal. I was originally going to go last weekend, but literally while I was heading south on 17, someone from California outbid only to renege when they discovered shipping was going to be $120. So today I finally brought it in, moved it and the 840, and hooked them up. It's very beautiful. I had to reset it using the two buttons on the front left corner and it's obviously not LCD tack sharp, but it looks good. I'm hoping it improves a little bit as it warms up -- it's cold up here in Northern Arizona and it's been in my van since Sunday. I'm still planning on seeing if I can head out to grab a few more displays over the summer, and I don't yet know ultimately what equipment will end up where. For the time being, I think the 6100 is going to take the 840's place in my bedroom, with the MCD14.
  7. So, I might be getting a decently sized conquest of Mac stuff this weekend from trades. There'll probably be a post from me in that section around Satueday, but for now I've got a question. Among this lot is a Macintosh Color Display, the 640x480 CRT. From what I've heard and read, the only input is a DA-15 cable. I have two questions regarding this. Firstly, is it at all possible to wire an adapted to allow composite input? The form factor and resolution would be perfect for my N64 and C64 if so, and I'm willing to solder a cable. This seems quite unlikely, but honestly, I'd be over the moon if it was possible. I've been looking for a decent CRT for a while and if this is possible it'd fit the bill perfectly as well as being useable with Macs. Secondly, I want to get this monitor running with my SE as an external display. What kind of card would I need to drive this and how could I get one? I know they're pretty rare, likely, and I haven't got a ton of money. What makes should I be on the lookout for? I haven't got a pizza box Mac or a tower to hook it up to; I've currently only got compact macs. So, it looks like a nice monitor that isn't too big (14"), and I'm happy to have it when I get it. I was just wondering what I need to do to get it going and could use all the advice I could get. Thanks!

    Center video

    Is there another way to centre the image on an AppleColor High-Resolution RGB Monitor 13" (M0401Z)? The knob behind the back panel won’t go any further? Please see attached photo. BW, Kristian
  9. Hello, I managed to connect an Eizo FlexScan SX2461W 27” to my IIcx using a 15DM/DF-10p adapter and a DVI to VGA cord. It work great, I can se a full spectrum of colors, except the halftone is overwhelmingly green. What is happening and why all the green? I use a Nubus Macintosh Display Card 670, 820-0600-A I have tried every display setting … what have I missed? For now I use it monochrome. BW, Kristian

    Radius Pivot SE/30 - Monitors?

    Hey I've bought a Radius Pivot Color Card for my SE/30 a long time ago now. I also own the IIsi varient of this card, and I know it works on the SE/30 (PDS are electronically compatible) with a Samsung 17" Multisync LCD. I am using a DA-15 to VGA adapter, it has 8 switches (if memory serves) so you can set the correct resolution. I forgot what combination I used but I know I wrote it down somewhere. I think the two cards are pretty similar. So theoretically the same setup should work with the SE/30 specific card. But I'm running in a few problems. I tried installing the drivers from the MacGarden. I put these drivers there myself. I know they work since megabyte used them with his Pivot card and his SE/30 can now see the external monitor. Whereas the IIsi version didn't need any drivers to work, I think the SE/30 one does. If someone has one of these, I'd like to know which drivers you have installed. Also, I'd like to know if the "Macintosh Color Display", that's the 14 inch one, works with the Radius Pivot. The one I have at home doesn't display anything, I think it might be dead. I've bought an LCII. Does it work on the LCII without the need for a PDS video card? I'd like to test it with the LCII. Help much appreciated!
  11. Hey there! I feel that it's somewhat lame that my first post to the 68k MLA forums is to ask for assistance, but "it is what it is" I guess. So here's what I've got going on. Earlier this year I was gifted a (1st generation mobo) Macintosh II, along with a 13" AppleColor High-Resoluton monitor. The Monitor is being driven by a Macintosh II video card, with the VRAM upgrade allowing it to display 256 colors. Everything seems to be running nicely and within specification, but there's two issues with the monitor that are driving me somewhat crazy. The first issue is that the raster seems tilted. On the upper left-hand corner of the raster, there is a 1cm blank space towards the north. In the middle, there is 1cm of blank space towards the north. On the upper right-hand corner, that blank space is around 0.8-0.9 of a cm towards the north. The measurements are all equal on the bottom (south) edge. Now if we were to focus on the east side at the top right-hand corner, it folds in the west direction ever so slightly at the very top (North), and there is some horizontal convergence fringing. And that brings me to my second issue... The second issue is with the vertical convergence. In the upper left (northwest) area of the raster, you can see a slight blue fringing towards the right (east). In the lower left area (southwest) of the raster, there is a red and yellow fringing towards the right. Now in the upper-right area of the raster, the display is perfectly calibrated in terms of . In the lower-right area of the raster, there is blue fringing once again, towards the left. I've followed the convergence calibration steps in the Service Manual with the Display Service Utility, in addition to those outlined in "Macintosh II Upgrade and Repair secrets" with a version of TPG dating from '88. I couldn't get any of the pots on the 'H' board, 'B', or 'D' board to fix this problem. And at this point, I've spent so much time trying to correct this, that I figure that anymore "tinkering" will result in more harm than good. For the most part, the convergence is fine too-- the problems are mainly at the edges, and is the worst towards the bottom of the display (where V.BOTTOM would adjust the horizontal convergence... except that's fine). My theory is that after nearly 30 years, the yoke is in need of some adjustment, but I've never worked on the yoke of a color CRT. I would really appreciate it if someone could give me a good starting point and some additional steps to correct the vertical convergence. I would be happy to provide some macro photos of this fringing if they would help determine the root of the problem. Thank you all so much in advance!
