  1. I'm not that good with soldering. I tried it once and fricked up my tip. I don't know what I did wrong but I don't want to destroy it even more. I would like to learn what/how to iron but most of the videos I found online I frankly found confusing. Wouldn't that be putting it in the oven? I've seen that before Actually I got them off. It took a long time with a wrench but I got them off its back on now but I made sure I can unscrew it if I need to (needs a ram upgrade)
  2. I got a iMac 20" that doesn't want to turn on. When I press the power button, nothing happens, no light no sound, no display, nothing. There is however a kinda beeping noise from what I think is the power supply when I put my ear close to the fan holes. I got it from the guy who said it also didn't power on for him. I tried the hairdryer method, nothing. It seems last night that if I pressed the button a couple of times, then it'll boot. Now that I'm trying it, it doesn't want to seem to power on. I striped the base screws to the ram (because of a crappy screwdriver bit) so try to keep teardow
  3. I think it is his. The pictures of the inside look the same from haps original post about it. I even saw this on Macrumors!
  4. Yeah, It seems he just disappeared one day. Hope he's doing ok.
  5. Holy cr*p! dang. Thats a really good find.
  6. I got a ether dock that is broken. I'm pretty sure it hadn't been used in years before I got it. I tried to use it once with the floppy drive, but it gave an error and some popping sounds. It might've been the duo I was using because I tried the floppy drive with another computer and it worked alright. But anyways, I'm pretty sure the ether dock just needs a recap. It smelled like fish every time after I used it, which I've heard could be a sign of dead caps but idk. PS: does anyone know if the external floppy drive for those duo units uses ZIF in the drive? I got a cheap zif to c
  7. I googled the name and it turns out it's a company that seems to make stuff for woodturners. It seems the guy who runs it is named Jon Siegel. Now, idk if thats what it was used for/by (for all I know it could've been used by a company thats been out of business since the 90s) but thats what I think
  8. Nah, unless you have an extra scsi to ethernet adapter that works.
  9. FART now the adapters broken or something. frack Dayna
  10. I've done the correct process to install it (I think) I've read the instruction manual, but it still hasn't worked. The part where I seem to be encountering an error is when the manual says to set the zone to Daynaport or whatever, but when I go to change it, there are no zones. I know the ethernet works. The installation seems to work. I have no clue what I'm doing wrong.
  11. I got it in box, so it came with drivers
  12. Oh, are you guys talking about farraon ethernet adapters? I need help with mine, the drivers or something doesn't work I got a dayna pocket scsi/link. Any help?
  13. How did you make the disk? I tried to use burnISO but it says it's the wrong type of file or something.
  14. Does anyone else here have a Dayna Pocket SCSI/Link? I've tried to install mine on multiple devices, but it seems the drivers or something doesn't work. I've read through the manual multiple times and made sure I did everything right. Can anyone give help or tips?
  15. Damn, I may just get a ethernet card just to try this out!
  16. Thanks for the link! Also, can you please tell if the Mac TV supports CD-R? I'm about to get a caddy and haven't tried it before
  17. Can you send a link to download the restore for the Mac TV? I'm planning on restoring mine and I kinda need the cd. Ps. on the tuner card there's a small board on it, it's probably old and very corroded. Mine was so corroded when I picked it up to put it back in the machine a cap or two fell. Luckily, the cards pretty cheap on eBay. You should probably buy sockets (I think that's what they are called) so if you need to replace it again, it's just a matter of ordering a new one and putting it in.
  18. I was trying to lift the board to get a better view than one of the ribbon cables to the motor broke when I was trying to remove it.
  19. Update: broke my farging hdi-20
  20. I've got a Powerbook Duo 2300c that has a dead hard drive. I want to restore this since this is kinda easy to repair, especially since it uses 2.5 IDE instead of 2.5 SCSI, so I can just put in a cheap 2.5 IDE to CF converter and install MacOS and these Powerbook Duos are quite rare. The only problem is the floppy drive. I have an HDI-20 floppy drive, and I have an Emachines dock (which has an HDI-20 port) and a micro dock. However, I've only tried it once on the emachines dock. It said it couldn't read the disk (even though there was no disk in there) and when I pressed eject, it popped and th
  21. I have an ADC to DVI adapter that I think is broken. It seems to cut out and glitch at random times, and the USB works (at first), then it seems to die. I've done some reading, and I saw an ifixit post where they say that every 2 years the power supplies die (post). I'm pretty sure its the adapter because I've tried it with different Studio displays and it seems to do the same thing. I was wondering if anyone knows if the power supply or something else is to blame and how to fix it. Also, how do you disassemble the adapter?
  22. It's for apple ii emulators. It's basically like a .img (or .vdi on how you look at it) for apple ii, kinda
  23. I actually got a indigo one, so I'll probably PM you later.
  24. update: I'm in the machine rn, had the machine on while unplugging and plugging back in the video connector, it still showed a white screen, nothing else. I have a video here (please excuse the really bad camera work, was filming on mobile, and trying to unplug)
  25. I'm about to disassemble it (please please wish me luck) I'm making the screw organizer right now. I'll check out the video cable, as that's what a lot of other resources (that are available) online say.
