  1. I had similar scenario with my NTX. Did replacing the AC power block capacitor fix everything? Where is it located so I can test/replace?
  2. Great work! I'd be interested in getting 8 simms if you do end up making a production run of these. I'm sure here must be some others on here after those SIMMS and have no way of producing their own!
  3. FYI - You can source 3D printed versions of these nowadays, both clear and platinum coloured. http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Apple-Macintosh-Color-Colour-Classic-LC575-Mystic-Panel-Laser-Cut-Rear-Cover-/222665321688
  4. Per the LC Series User Manual Macintosh LC Series/ Quadra 605 - tim.id.au there's a few to choose from. You could google for images to get a look at what they look like and whether they'll go with your LC 475: LC and LC II provide built-in support for many monitors, including: • Apple High-Resolution Monochrome Monitor (M0400) • AppleColor High-Resolution RGB Monitor (M0401) Rev 2 (M1297) • Macintosh 12-Inch RGB Display (M1296) • Macintosh 12-Inch Monochrome Display (M0400) • Macintosh Color Display (M1212) • Apple Basic Color Monitor (M9103) LC III, LC 475 and Quadra 605 pr
  5. Update: Fixed. Seems that the DB15->VGA cable I had was a Radius one (might explain the cycling of the LEDs as they have special monitor cable usually). A replacement 'standard' Mac DB15->HD-15 (VGA) I bought has it working fine now.
  6. Very cool. Ordered the parts and thinking what other Macs this would be good to do on (maybe an early laptop?)
  7. I acquired a later revision Apple Multiple Scan 15” Display - Model M2978, Nov 1995. (Ie this one is different to the model (M2943) you commonly see in the Apple manuals by this name, which was originally introduced in mid 1994.) When the monitor powers on, the green LEDs below Horizonal/vertical centre/size indicators cycle from left to right continuously. The monitor's main power LED remains orange, and does not flick over to the ‘on’ green indicator as normally happens when a Mac boots up and sends images to the monitor. Anyone have a manual for this older variant or could tell me wh
  8. Ta, not got one yet, hence was hoping there might be another trick one knows. Was wondering if the Quicktake camera should 'react' in some way when you plug in the low power ac adapter? I guess we're a bit used to Macbooks/iPads making a sound and/or brightening the screen when you plug in the power.
  9. I acquired a Powerbook 140 (tho it has a "145B" stencil inside the case?) with a Macintosh Low power adapter with it. I think the power adapter is non-working (clearly the batter is, but believe this should turn on even with a dead battery inside). How can I test the 7.5V 2.0A adapter? Tried attaching to a Quicktake 100 camera (which takes 7.5V 2.0A) but nothing changes on the small LCD to suggest it is being powered by the mains? Any way to test this without opening it up - any other things it might work on?
  10. I had a similar issue with my CD SC and it turned out to be CD format related. Basically the larger 700MB formatted CD-Roms or CD-Rs did not read (CD-RW never work on some!), but I found that earlier Apple CD-Roms that came with both MacOs 7-9 and Mac OS X formats, loaded ok and did not eject immediately. Can't recall which of those grey Mac CD's it was, but I recall it was a real early disk (maybe a Airport CD Install disk or something?). I then found some commentary that suggested that these earlier Caddy CD drives came out when 650MB CDs were the thing and thus can't read the newer/faster/
  11. Am looking to do the same, here's a US site that has some PRAMs for PDQs it seems (some UK sites sell them too): http://www.usedmac.com/products/powerbook-g3-wall-street-pram-bios-battery Here's a good link on how to disassemble your PDQ (which I used) -A MERE 30 STEPS TO REMOVE THE PRAM!!! https://www.ifixit.com/Guide/PowerBook+G3+Wallstreet+PRAM+Battery+Replacement/11 Finally, a german site with info to help you create your own replacement PRAM - http://www.cubeuser.de/showthread.php?t=2402 In particular, the PDF linked in the second message down (nb: hosted on a ext. storage site
  12. I ordered some from someone on here or at thinkclassic.org website. See https://www.thinkclassic.org/viewtopic.php?pid=8527#p8527
  13. I am after a replacement front bezel for my Macintosh 630CD. I believe either a 63x/64x one will do (nb: don't want any of the PowerPC variants - sticking 68k true on that one).
  14. I managed to get a Radius 0379 (Color Pivot/LE) Monitor a while back now. I got the seller to pack it carefully and ship it to me and while it arrived fine, I was unable to get a proper image with a IIsi Radius card or a SE/30 Color Pivot cards I have. See images below. Any ideas whether the cards or the monitor is likely the problem?

  16. I can recognise the floppy drive controller and what looks like a Z80 CPM Card, but what's the other one? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/142310976496
  17. Thanks. No use to me then. If anyone needs it, send me a DM and I'll send it their way for the cost of postage only.
  18. On an Apple TV (Gen 1) or any old TV? I think I have an old iPod Video around, assumably that might work too. Thought it might be iBook related as it's white, but iPod makes sense too.
  19. Bolle, Sweet gain on the Iici + Turbo. I have been trying to get my Iici and Turbo 040 33mhz (just like yours) going too. While my mobo had less goo than yours and the usual power supply trickle issue, the IIci is working ok with a new refurb p/s (I blew the last one trying to 'hold down keyboard boot key and flip the power switch' too often!), it probably needs a recap. Alas, no luck so far with the Turbo 040 (despite getting a new 4.11 ROM a colleague on here in the EU provided me) so I will be watching how you go in earnest as I am not sure if it's a power or 040 issue with mine! Le
  20. See attached image. I got this with a LCIII I acquired, but it obviously doesn't go with it. It looks Apple-like, so wanted to see what it was and what it went with. 3.5mm to 3 x RCA???
  21. From the album: TimHD Shares

    What does this go with?
  22. Likewise, interested in acquiring new hinges. Wallstreet PDQ.
