  1. I now have one of these cards, but not the Snooper 2.0 software noted above. Anyone got the software or a link to it? Also is the manual around in PDF?
  2. I think the myth is because it's not needed on most later iifx's (as it seems from some old comments I have seen), but early models had issues. Happy to be proven wrong but i can't get ext SCSI working without say an Iomega termination whereas other passive grey SCSI terminators don't work.
  3. Amazing that no-one here seems to have had one ever. Probably gets mistaken for other things not Mac related as it really looks generic until you put it next to a Mac ii and they clearly look related
  4. Here's a "left" hinge $19.. http://www.ebay.com/itm/LEFT-Powerbook-G3-M4753-Wallstreet-LCD-Display-Hinge-Clutch-for-14-/322046572657 And a full set for $59 (i.e. the price of a 2nd hand Wallstreet!) http://www.ebay.com/itm/Powerbook-G3-M4753-Wallstreet-LCD-Display-Hinges-Clutch-Hinge-set-14-/322038729393 As before, anyone got a right hinge they can scrounge from a dead PDQ?
  5. I find that if I attach an external SCSI with normal terminator, I lose the internal SCSI HDD (not a SCSI ID issue btw) unless I use my Iomega drive as the last device in the chain (which seems to work better), hence I think I need one of these black connectors to make it stable and work.
  6. Trying to source a replacement (right) hinge for the 14.1" Wallstreet PDQ (1998) model M4753. The 1998 series was the year Apple consolidated the screens from 12/13/14 into a single 14.1" Wallstreet II PDQ series (both series being M4753 models), with the following year's Powerbook G3 Lombard also using a 14.1" display (but now model M5343). I can source a relatively cheap Lombard 14.1" hinge set but wondering if the PDQ's screen uses the same hinges? Alt: Does anyone have a spare (right when facing the screen) hinge for the M4753's 14.1" LCD screen they can sell?
  7. For the benefit of those with Mac IIfx's (or NTX printers) out there that having issues getting external SCSI devices to work because they can't locate the incredibly rare "Black" Apple SCSI Terminators II's - I was wondering if the linked Apple Tech notes might be of interest to someone here who may be able to make these. The linked Apple's Developer Tech Note on SCSI Termination outlines the differences between the standard (Grey) and Mac IIfx/NTX (Black) Terminator II's (and has a pretty bad set of Sarah Conner jokes). Old (Grey) SCSI Terminator: New (Black) SCSI Terminator I
  8. None of my macs seem to be able to use it - so no point of me holding onto it, so..... Anyone interested in adding this to their collection? Silent Auction: Send me a PM with (i) your $/trade offer and (ii) what you plan to do with it* before 20 Nov 16 and I will let the winner know. *Keen to see it goes to a good home where it can be used or be added to an existing Mac collection. NB: Shipping from Aus.
  9. Do they have a particular name? Did not see them during earlier searches.
  10. I've seen Mac 128/512/Plus programmer keys/reset switches (thin long, on left hand side) and the ones for theSE/SE/30 switches (taller, 2 pivoting buttons, LHS), but find that neither works on a Mac II (fx specifically) to access the two buttons on the RHS (right hand side). Are these available?
  11. Would an ethermac iprint LT adapter work. I believe it can link numerous macs with a printer via Ethernet/AppleTalk. Not sure if that extends to 2cs?
  12. Anyone seen one of these Irwin Tape Backup for Mac II's about? https://computerarchive.org/files/comp/hardware/Iwin%20Backup%20for%20Mac%20tape%20drive.PDF
  13. UsedMac has some replacement parts that are not too costly. http://www.usedmac.com/products/mac-stands/922-5515-apple-display-hinge-assembly-for-17-and-20-pre-owned
  14. See. https://68kmla.org/forums/index.php?/topic/28590-if-you-are-desperate-for-recap/
  15. Had similar problems with SCSI on my iifx, but an SCSI2SD seems to work fine (better termination) and now I can connect ext SCSI devices or not without any issues and she's fast, even without an accelerated video card. Btw any recommendations for an accelerated video card that are regularly available or are they very rare?
  16. Bump. Was sent by PM a link to a few of these but the files appear to be corrupted or compressed incorrectly without resource links. Anyone got any versions of MacTest II, ideally iifx one?
  17. Ta. Will give that a go. Anyone out there got an Aztecmonster in a Mac II or similar and can tell me how they have their's configured?
  18. I have an Aztecmonster SCSI to CF adapter (http://www.artmix.com/CF_AztecMonster.html) with a bootable 2gb drive in my Mac iisi that won't boot unless I have an ext SCSI chain attached. Clearly this seems to be a termination error of sorts except that no fiddling with the jumpers on the Aztecmonster card seems to help. Indeed the manual seems to be wrong as the jumpers are listed 124T on the card but seem to be T124 based on the SCSI ID results I get. Anyone got one of these working fine in a standalone Mac without ext SCSI attached? Can you buy a db25 terminator anywhere, as I hav
  19. Yes, although on the ifixit and the YouTube videos they flash past this step (or not cover it). Looking at one video the guy seems to be pulling it up (or across, as someone has suggested) but it seems to give easily. Against that, have read about the base falling off tables and ripping the connector out of the motherboard - so these are not MagSafe attachments!!
  20. Anyone got a copy of this software? it's mentioned in an Apple Technical procedures manual at http://www.brutaldeluxe.fr/documentation/manual/atp_applepc525drive.pdfas a companion software for the Apple PC 5.25 drive (A9M0110) or see http://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/apple-service-mactest-ii-diagnostic-132610403 for an old listing.
  21. Bump. Anyone actually removed one of these connectors?
  22. Refurbishing a few iMac G4s and finding the TMDS connector attached to the motherboards are hard to disconnect. What's the trick? Should it just lift up or is there a catch / pinch needed?
  23. I have an issue when I have 16mb in Bank A and 4 mb in Bank B with my Mac iifx. Both sets of memory work fine on their own in Bank A but when both Banks are populated they don't work - could it be different ram speeds and Mode 32? (NB: I originally added the 16mb into Bank B with my existing 4mb in Bank A,and got the bad chimes, And I noted the Mac II manual tells you not to do 20mb that way, but even flipping it round to Bank A 16mb, Bank B 4mb, didn't work either so maybe it's ram speed?)
  24. ScutBoy, I believe the cables are: (per Apple flyer for portrait monitors) 590-0574 Cable DB25/DB25 590-0615 Cable DB15/DB25
