  1. Hopefully, this would come in handy for anyone curious about the PCMCIA module made for the PowerBook 500 series. I've posted as many pictures from various angles of the board assembly and parts (in case anyone has interest in planning modifications and how much space is inside the module) as I don't intend to open this up very often. If at all. There are three hex screws, one plastic tab, and a sticker holding my Rev C module together. I didn't have a hex bit of the correct size, but a Torx T6 proved a snug fit that allowed me to remove the screws. When I depressed the plastic ta
  2. Yes, even 400K floppy drives need to be recapped. This video walkthrough holds your hand through the process. I show a few clips of Epyx Winter Games at the end. The bootable 400K DSK image I created yesterday is now on Macintosh Garden. https://youtu.be/71Lz9OjJFe8
  3. Just uploaded my Apple Hard Disk 20SC recapping video, which also covers the 40SC, 80SC and 160SC since they all use the same SONY CR-43 PSU. Check the text description for a Mouser Cart and useful info. At the end, I do a boot test with a 2015 15" MBP.
  4. I finally kicked out my Apple TechStep video today. This has been long in coming. Be sure to check out the text description beneath my video on YouTube because it contains a link to a SIT file containing Disk Copy images of the two included floppies, one of which has a pretty neat HyperCard stack.
  5. Hey, all! I've been lurking around here for a while, enjoying all of the acquisition posts and knowledge from the different subgroups of this community. Reading about the stories posted here really got me excited about vintage hardware from one of my favorite tech companies. I wanted to make sure my first post would be on the "Apple" of my eye. I've been hunting for a PowerBook 550c for a few years, and lately, the time has been ripe. I recently acquired one on Yahoo! Auctions, which had the 100Mhz (or 99MHz?) PPC upgrade and 32MB module installed. I also found a PCMCIA Rev C modu
  6. I recently had one of my Apple Color High-Resolution Monitor Video Color Board ‘B-board’ re-capped. One of the large capacitors (22 µf 250 V ) had started to erode. The video was slightly improved, and the occasional shutting down issue seems to be gone. However, the H-board has a broken dial, and it is hopelessly awkward to adjust the horizontal centering ‘H.CENT’. So where can I buy this little dial (marked with magenta in the picture) and what is it called? Thanks! /ktkm
  7. Quite possibly the last vintage Mac I plan to collect. I've been looking for a boxed 2400c/240 for a little while; it has only become my Holy Grail after I acquired my 550c. So, for me, a significant conquest. Final Bid price: 30,500 yen (272.99 USD current) Shipping/Fees charge: 14,192 yen (127.03 USD current) Auction Linky I found this set on Yahoo! Auctions Japan late February. I also bought an extra set of restore software about the same time, and had them consolidate shipping, so you'll see the software actually shrinkwrapped with the computer box in the
  8. There were two variants of the ADB G5431 Mouse as shown in the photo below: The left is the original and the right is a newer version. Not only is the color of the ball different but the size as well. QUESTION: Which of the two is considered better overall (rolling performance, accuracy, durability, etc)?
  9. Recently imported a couple of CC ii, they both worked initially. The second one I acquired started right up, but had a "sparking" sound every time it was booted, and every time it shut down (CRT off). I noticed the fan was not working, and the back casing was not flush against the front casing. I took the back off and fitted it flush with the front, screwed it back down. Fan worked, and initially, there was that "sparking sound" but no video. Took it apart again, and this time I noticed that the grounding harness was loose, and detached from the left side bracket
  10. Just ordered a LaCie MO 230 drive, looks like it is for the PowerBook 190/5300. It says 230MB on the label, but I have no idea what it means by that; looks like a floppy drive to me. Anyone know anything about this?
  11. Hi, I bought Macintosh Plus (with 2.5Mb of ram) with CMS external SCSI hard drive, i also bought sealed and new system 6.0.8 floppy disks, i installed them on CMS external hard drive; when i open scrapbook or control panel or file manager, co-processor not installed error pops up, it keeps happening every time i open scrapbook or control panel or file manager. Please help me.
  12. Hey everyone.. Wanted to know if anyone had a couple of the blueberry and tangerine apple leafs or even the full logo to spare? been on the search and i can't find any.
  13. I'm currently in Pennsylvania right now, and I came across something very worthwhile - I went to a vintage computer store today, but I only got an ADB low-power mouse there. Even though there were Macintosh IIs and Apple II Pluses as far as the eye could see, they weren't in good shape and they were kind of pricey. But that's only a taste of what happened. On our way back to the house, we stopped by an antique store we usually visit on these trips to the state, and I found...(drumroll, please) a boxed Apple IIe, with hardware enhancements, a good supply of cards inside, an Apple IIc mouse, an

  16. Hi everyone. I recently pulled out my Macintosh Classic from the closet so I can play around with it. I acquired it on a eBay auction a couple of years ago. The Macintosh has a 500 mb hard drive with 4MB of RAM installed. The little machine runs great but lacks sound. No startup chime or anything but boots right into System 7.5 that I installed fresh less then an hour ago. I go into the Control Panel for sound and it still plays nothing even though the volume is on max. I've plugged in my external speaker and it makes very little sound. I've even tried out the Control Panel for sound as well w
  17. Hi all, I've just had a new / vintage macintosh arrive at the lab See the following video on my Youtube channel to find out what it is, have a tour and do some gaming Hope you enjoy, Steve https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=__yarkfWf_Y
  18. This is just a quick appreciation thread for the Apple QuickTake 150 digital camera. I've had a QuickTake 150 (in box, with the battery pack, the docs, the software, and a few other neat bits) for a bit over a year. Some number of months ago, I put some time into cleaning some battery acid out of it, and just tonight it occurred to me to hook it up with some batteries and shoot some stuff with it. I'm installing the software onto the PowerBook 180 right now. I've long wanted to take a look at this because the idea of PhotoFlash is pretty intriguing. One day, I might like to grab a
