  1. After a diskette completely jammed in the floppy drive, I was forced to pry it out with pliers. Unfortunately, such a procedure is far from delicate, and the top drive head was damaged and put out of place. (Actually, I managed to damage the head before even attempting the pliers; they were simply a last resort..) Attached are photos of its current state. Shoulda-woulda-coulda, the deed is done; is it repairable, or is it time for a replacement? I should say, the drive was never ejecting properly in the first place, even after cleaning and relubricating, as well as repl
  2. Today I powered on my Mac Plus and I heard really weak start up beep and there was this weird pattern on screen for a few seconds, then the missing disk screen showed up and it booted into a system as usual, except there was no sound. Second time I powered on the Mac there was no sound (not even quiet beep), also there wasn't any audio output from the audio jack on the back.
  3. I need to get in my macintosh plus to fix the floppy drive, can someone send me instructions on how to get it out, ive been haveing a hard time finding them. Can you also send me instructions on how to diacharge the crt
  4. I am having issues with my Macintosh 512k. The machine will usually boot with the checkerboard pattern shown in the pictures. Sometimes it will make a very distorted sound on boot. The issue is not with the crt as it has been tested with other boards. Occasionally the checkerboard pattern will change. I suspect the the issue is with the roms installed. I have tried cleaning the roms but this does not change the issue. I am curious if any one else has ever had a problem similar to this.
  5. Hello, I recently bought a 128k Mac (non-functioning) and the seller told me that he thought that the 74F253 Ram Multiplexers were bad. But after replacing them with new Motorola ones, the screen still has the same issue. Here is a photo: I have no idea where to got from this point and a google search came up inconclusive. Please Help!!
  6. Dear members This is a PDF that I obtained from the archive.org. If you are considering taking apart your compact mac please take special care of CRT safety, this is a very good, short PDF on the topic that I hope you can all enjoy while working on your mac safely. Originally from, AppleCare Service Source http://service.info.apple.com/safety/safety.html#ESD Safety.pdf Topics covered: ESD Damage Prevention Follow these guidelines to reduce the risk of electrostatic discharge (ESD) damage to equipment.

  7. I'm new to this forum, if I do anything outside the rules let me know and I will correct my postings as appropriate. I recently acquired an SE/30 with 8mb ram and 80mb hard drive. It is in decent physical condition, and even included an ethernet networking card. ]'> Gentleman shipped it to me, I unpacked it, plugged it in, and used it for 5 minutes. It ran great and the display was bright and sharp. Audio was fairly quiet but working (its max was about the same as my SE FDHD's mid level I suppose) I then proceed to open up the case to put in a new battery. Luckily the origin
  8. By posting this inflammatory thread I know the flames will rage high! So let it burn! Ha! Lets throw hats and chew the fat, discuss about experiences and techno-babble, and explain why it is to you. I surmise that the SE\30 will rank high, though it is not without its problems: Recapping and Cap Goo Trace Rot being the worst of them. But the SE does not have these problems though they have most of the same components. Then you have the Classic and Classic II. Though the Classic will rank well along with the SE as a 68K machine, the Classic II is another issue altogether. Then there
  9. Hi I have been fixing a Quadra 630CD I recently acquired from eBay and was having some issues with it's 3.5" internal manual eject FDD. After a general clean up of the machine's innards including an air pressure clean of the FDD (without disassembling the FDD) I tried a few test formats with some 'new' floppies. It seems that the FDD couldn't generate 1.44mb (less a small amount for file system) sized formatted disks - as it seemed to be losing space (bad sectors?) during the verify pass after the format (some down to 1350kb, another 1422kb). More worryingly, it seemed to damage one of
