  1. ...or someone, I meant. You could sell them to someone who is so inclined.
  2. Yes you are correct however it was 99.9% likely those were iPhone generated, which is why I said as such.
  3. IPhone High Efficiency Image Codec (HEIC) files. Macs can open them no problem...I am assuming you are using a PC?
  4. Just ordered the caps for ~$25. Attached is a list of them from Mouser. AudioVision 14%22.xls
  5. Any that uses an auto-inject floppy drive is interchangeable with any other auto-inject version, and any one that uses a manual inject is compatible with any other manual inject. In fact, they are all compatible with each other with any machine as far as read/write electronics, the only issue is the case of each machine itself: slots were made differently for each drive type.
  6. I made myself a capacitor list, it is quite extensive between the two boards. I'll make a digital sheet and paste it in here as well.
  7. I have a few spare SE analogs. I'd have to test them but would be willing to get one to you. If there was one that no longer works because of a bad flyback, I'd harvest the other parts, like the ICs that cannot be easily duplicated.
  8. Still terribly blurry at the CRT neck, but I'm almost certain the thing is done. Here is a photo of what should be there on these two CRTs. Notice in between the pins, there is a tiny piece of glass sticking up. That has broken off yours, leading to a loss of vacuum in the tube. It is useless now.
  9. Regrettably, there is no way to do so other than some sort of file sharing setup. Mojave will only read the HFS partition, it cannot write to it.
  10. Yes, the CRT is dead there. You will need a replacement. Was the cable from the analog board to the logic board disconnected when you opened it as in the photo, or did you do that?
  11. The huge win for me would be if someone, someday, somehow, made a simplified adapter to allow connection of the DOS Card in a 6100 to connect directly to that absurd connector on the AudioVision 14" monitor instead of requiring TWO adapters!
  12. The real issue you have you actually mentioned in your first post: System 6. It took me a while to realize as well, but System 6 has no built-in file sharing capability. You can only connect to a server, not host anything. System 7 and up has that capability. The other methods that these guys mentioned may work, but you will not be able to network two System 6 machines together without turning one into a dedicated server with software, and there's not really any reason to do that because it changes the system software entirely.
  13. Sure thing. I really am not sure why they made the design the way they did. I followed the service source documentation, and that is just what they say to do. They even specify the tabs are 1 1'2" in from the sides, because there is no indication they are inside the case at all. All I can figure is that it was purely for aesthetics so there were no visible screw holes on top.
  14. I got it apart with only minor damage. The disassembly procedure made it virtually impossible to disassemble without some issue even when it was brand new: you need to press on the top of the case, pushing down on some unseen clips inside to release then, while simultaneously using a pry tool to split the case! Needless to say, one clip broke, but I glued it and it should be good enough to hold the thing once back together. There are screws as well. The nice thing about mine is it is not brittle: I was able to disassemble everything and remove the audio and video boards without any of the tabs
  15. If you were pitching, id take one. You can always make custom cases for these. I made a nice machine for my kids out of a Quadra 630 with mesh, angled metal connectors, and plexiglass.
  16. Well not necessarily, there could be a short inside the circuit inside that is just leading to a bleeding of current without it being reduced to its proper amperage. See what it is with it plugged in.
  17. Yeah, I'd see if the output was over-amped. No idea why that would happen, but anything is possible with old stuff.
  18. I think there were some limitations: something along the lines of 100s being read-only in the 750s, for example...but I have never seen a 750.
  19. Please explain how the hobbyists of us out here would obtain said squeegee and masks...I'd love that, but when soldering an SE/30 SCSI chip or the like, what other method can I use? I don't use anywhere near the amount that guy put on (too much bridging), but I have successfully done it by applying it across the pads with a toothpick.
  20. I guess they are a bit bulky, but the sound quality for the time was amazing. There were 5 or 6 in middle schools computer lab, and this one was the last remaining when I picked it up some years later. Just have a soft spot for it from then. I wish they still had the 20” MultiScan that they had on a travel cart. That thing was a behemoth back then.
  21. Some guy offered me $200 off the bat for it when he saw it in a picture I had posted. It wasn’t even for sale.
  22. I’ve got an AudioVision 14 that I’ve had in my closet for the better part of 17 years. Needs to be adjusted for sure, and I remember the geometry being all askew. It has some nicks in the plastic from someone previously trying to open it, and I was uncertain how to open it back then as well so so never attempted it. I never knew these things were so sought after, but I want to keep mine to mate with my 6100 and 8100. Any suggestions as to where to start with this? Recap for sure, but otherwise?
