  1. Sadly, they don't have the FAT AMIC. 343S0148
  2. Please keep us posted. If you find a current model printer that supports AppleTalk (over Ethernet) many of us would like to hear about it. Printer companies used to list the protocols supported (TCP/IP, SPX/IPX, AppleTalk, etc.) as one of the categories in their specifications, but now days they just say, "Works with Windows 10, Mac OS 10.9, etc., which is fairly useless.
  3. I think I've got a copy of the DynaMO 640 disk. I'm guessing you need the software for the 2.3GB drive?
  4. Good price on 540MB MO media ($25/5 pack + $10 ship; $1 ship per additional pack) here: https://www.ebay.com/itm/VERBATIM-540MB-Magneto-Optical-Disk-NEW-SEALED/184390977398
  5. Thank you, MrFahrenheit. For some reason your post prompted me to do a little searching, I should have done at the beginning. I don't know why I didn't think of it before. I guess it never occurred to me that Fujitsu might still have the manual on line. Anyway, the Fujitsu Dynamo MO manual is still on their site, and specifically lists 540MB disks as supported. https://www.fujitsu.com/downloads/COMP/fcpa/mo/discontinued/dynamo-640se_user-guide.pdf
  6. Anyone know if the 540MB 3.5" MO disks work in the Fujitsu 640MB MO drive?
  7. I don't know if it helps at all, but the Apple part number for the LISA CRT was 076-0105 1 CRT & Yoke Assembly (Lisa) And the part number for the flyback was: 076-0106
  8. [NITPICK] The PowerWave, like the PowerTower Pro, was based on the Power Surge architecture, not the Catalyst architecture. [/NITPICK] One way to remember is that the PowerWave has eight RAM DIMM slots, while Catalyst machines never have more than 4 slots. "Power Surge" is the Apple's name for the 7500/8500/9500 and following models, family. They are sometimes called Tsunami, but that was the code name for the 9500, specifically. Power Computing shipped two PowerSurge-based models, PowerWave and PowerTower Pro. Their Catalyst based models wer
  9. If that photo you posted of Apple System Profiler showed a little more of the screen.... Somewhere on there, there should be a line for Firmware revision. $77D.40F2 => Rev. A $77D.45F1 => Rev. B $77D.45F2 => Rev. C Rev. A lacks support for Slave drives on the IDE busses. The Revision of the ROM can also be determined by reading the part number off of the **chips** on the ROM DIMM, but I don't remember the numbers. The part number on the ROM DIMM **circuit board** does not help.
  10. What brand is the IDE drive? One of the major brands, Western Digital, I think, has a setting for "Single" drive. So if the drive is the only one on the cable, the jumpers on teh drive need to be set to "Single", not set to "Master" or "Slave". That was a big trap back when 1.6 GB drives were common. Unreliable symptoms you're seeing were the common result.
  11. I've used these little modules from time to time. They're widely available and pretty cheap on Ebay. https://www.ebay.com/itm/10pcs-New-Low-Ripple-LM2596-DC-Converter-Buck-Step-Down-Power-Supply-Module/251261373643 There was some reason I settled on this seller, though. I can't remember exactly why, but I think it had to do with examining the datasheet for the regulator driving the board and looking at the components used with it. Some of the regulators available seem to be using under spec'd parts, if I'm remembering correctly. It's been several years since I lo
  12. I'm not sure how color values are encoded, but my guess would be that something is wrong with the signal lines for the bits that must be set to get out of the red values. This could be a problem with data lines in the VRAM, but it could also be signals feeding the DAC. There should be a video DAC on the logic board, and perhaps some of the data lines to it aren't working, so that pixels all have values of "red" when they arrive in digital form.
  13. Well, if you find a use for the slower ones, I have a reel of 998 of the MC88916DW55...
