  1. All – I'm genuinely flummoxed by this. Have any of y'all seen this happen before? I took a working, recapped SE/30 without a PRAM battery, installed a new PRAM battery off Amazon, and boom – simasimac on boot, no chime, even after waiting for RAM check to complete. Removed the PRAM battery, and I'm stuck with the same simasimac. Would y'all know what might have happened here, or how inserting a PRAM battery in an SE/30 that previously worked might lead to a simasimac? To make sure I hadn't accidentally unseated a ROM or RAM SIMM, I removed all of the SIMMs, soaked them and the logic board in vinegar to get rid of any corrosion, washed it, and dried it. No change. Attached are shots of the top and bottom of the logic board, if that would help. They're a little blurry. (Some IPA is still trying on the top shot, so it looks a little bit wet.)
  2. Hi folks Do any of you have any idea where I can source a replacement pram battery for a 300MHz Wallstreet (PDQ) laptop? or know the spec of the battery so I can make a replacement? Also, do any of you have any tips on opening the main battery, for rebuild? Before I start trying to hack it open, I'm hoping someone has been there before! I've decided to revive my oldest still in one piece laptop, my old PC laptop went pop, so had to get binned. This got me through university, so has a lot of memories. The main battery does take a charge, but only barely. the PRAM battery is shot as far as I can tell. I'm going to leave it plugged in for a day or so, see if it'll top up the battery and revive it, but I'm not hopeful. The CD drive works, but only if i mvoe the laser to the furthest out part of the track before putting a cd in. I think it's getting stuck right in the centre upon eject, is there an easy way to sort that out, or am I looking at a new drive? It doesn't seem to be a standard atapi cdrom in the case, so I doubt I can replace the guts of it easily I'd like to use it to get files onto my mac classic at some point in the future too, is it possible to use the serial ports in both machines to do localtalk, or are they too far apart in age? Thanks

  4. Hi all, im wondering if anyone might be able to make any suggestions regarding a 400mhz Pismo I have. As the title suggests, it boots so long as its plugged in at the mains and the reset button that sits among the ports has been pressed for a bit. The obvious first thing to do was to disconnect the dead pram battery however that hasn't soulved it.Can anyone suggest what I might be able to try next? Many thanks
