  1. So I just got stunnel working on my pi so I can now read my gmail on my Macintosh Plus using Eudora Lite 1.x! There is one problem though, I cannot send emails because of what I believe to be a security problem. I am not sure what's wrong but I get this error message (see below) when the mac tries to send emails to stunnel. I think stunnel is expecting the messages to already be secured or it is expecting smtp authorization. I am not sure how to fix this as I have very little IT background, hopefully someone here smarter can help! Thanks. PS: I also attached an image of my stu
  2. Hello I have a bunch of Sony MFD-51W 800k floppy drives that I'd like to put back into my Mac Plus computers so that I can sell them. Fortunately, I was able to get all their eject mechanisms working properly, thanks to James Wages' terrific instructions! But many of the drives have the same issue: Their heads do not move from the zero position to attempt to read the disk. I have only one drive connected to the computer at a time. If a drive works, the computer boots just fine and everything is great! But these drives in which the heads don't move from
  3. Hello everyone, this is my first post on the 68kmla so hopefully I did everything right! this is my formerly rusty Macintosh Plus that I restored to (almost) former glory over the last few months. unfortunately, when I currently turn it on I get a distorted chime and various screens like this corrupted checkerboard, corrupted white screen or thick black vertical bars. I confirmed the RAM to be working by swapping out parts with a working Mac Plus, I also found that one of the ROMs was bad but changing it for a good one didn't fix my problem. The analog board
  4. Being that it is very rare to find hardware upgrades for a mac plus, is there any programs/extensions that anyone can recommend to improve the speed or memory of a 68000 mac or am I just dreaming? I have heard of things like RamDoubler but do these programs actually work? I am trying to get the best performance out of my mac plus that I can. I already have 4 MB of RAM and am booting off of a SCSI2SD. Thanks!
  5. My Macintosh Plus has many hardware issues, but I would like to address this one today. This checkerboard appeared one day and alongside that, the sound stopped working. I already replaced electrolytic capacitors on both logic board and analogue board. I recently upgraded my Macintosh from 2.5Mb of RAM to 4Mb of RAM and the checkerboard changed. I would appreciate some help with this problem because I tried many solutions and none have worked. Before 4Mb upgrade: After 4Mb upgrade:
  6. Good afternoon (for me), I decided to write this thread apart from the other one about this device because I don't want to divert the attention from the main thread. So to put you in situation, I have a Macintosh Plus with an Apple 20SC HD that originally came with a 20MB MiniScribe drive. I love the sound of that hard drive and I'm looking to get it back. The original drive has mechanical problems and stopped working many years ago, but I thought the logic board was working. This drives are surprisingly expensive nowadays, so I found this one on Ebay and thought t
  7. I've been having A/V problems for some time now, I asked people on r/VintageApple and they said I should recap logic board. I already replaced all cylindrical capacitors on the analog board and a professional replaced the capacitors on the logic board, but alas, there wasn't any change, I still get this checkerboard on startup and there's no sound at all (except some occasional faint screeches). I am getting really desperate for solutions because this is a very specific problem that has not been (probably) documented yet. I really want to make my Mac Plus work again, but anything I've tried di
  8. So I went to start my Mac plus this morning and a bunch of weird things happened. The Mac didn’t recognize my SCSI2SD (which usually works) and the power light on my Asante EN/SC wasn’t lit. I rebooted it and all worked fine. Until... The printer (an ImageWriter II) started printing a bunch of random characters while the computer was booting. I thought that maybe this was because AppleTalk was selected in chooser. I changed this and rebooted. The printer stopped the crazy characters. But the weirdest problem of all that I still can’t seem to wrap my head around is the f
  9. Does anyone know where I can find some sort of accelerator for my slow Mac plus? I don’t care how small the improvement. Is there a possible way to build one like a brainstorm?
  10. Hi everyone, I have Macintosh Plus, the screen disappears after some time and I usually just slap the side but now it doesn't work the screen Is completely blank (yes I turned the brightness to maximum amount alas nothing changes). Does somebody know how to fix it or what causes it?
  11. I have recently have been looking for a boot disk for the Macintosh plus and stumbled across a post of someone using a SCSI IOmega zip drive to download System 7 and boot a Macintosh. is this possible? And can someone explain it to me? and is it easy?
  12. So I recently got a Mac plus with only a mouse and was wondering if there was a way to solder a adb cable to a standers rj10 cable to use on the front of the mac plus
  13. I have been trying for months to get my rare Asante EN/SC to work with my Macintosh plus to no avail. I have the adapter hooked up to a 10BaseT hub and I can even receive packets in the troubleshooter. But when I bring up Macweb it acts as though there is no connection; error 500. Any help is greatly appreciated! -Justin
  14. I need to replace a couple PRAM batteries in my 512k machines. Have any of you made a purchase recently? I see this EN133A/523 on Amazon for $6.60 + $1.99 shipping. You will also find an "Excell" brand for a higher price. To me, even $6.60+$1.99 is rather expensive. I'm curious if there's a quality difference. Most likely they are both made in China, but even in China the quality can vary. Thanks.
  15. Hey! I'm trying to find the software that is featured on the cover of the first edition Macintosh Plus manual, which can be found here! It looks like a spreadsheet/charts application, but I can't seem to find anything about it on the internet. Thanks everyone!
  16. Hi 69kmla community! Having some trouble figuring out how to format and initialise an external SCSI HDD (GCC Technologies UltraDrive 45) with Apple HD SC setup 2.0.3 on a Macintosh Plus from 1986 with 4MB of RAM. I read elsewhere that i need HD SC setup version 3.0 to recognise non-Apple SCSI external HDD to boot on it the system. And that 3.0 version work with System 7.0. I have System 6.0.8 on a DD Floppy Disk. The external 45MB HDD use 50pins connector with a passive SCSI terminator. The lights blinks when Mac Plus boot up and trying t
  17. I recently got a SCSI2SD V5.1 and have been having trouble setting it up with my Macintosh Plus. I have it setup to emulate a single 1 GB Seagate drive and am trying to use Lido 7 (booted off of floppy emu) to format the drive. I have already edited the 3 special setting for the Macintosh Plus in the util.exe program. When everything is booted up it doesn’t even realize there’s a SCSI device connected. Any help is greatly appreciated!
  18. 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
  19. I recently found a Mac Plus that someone was planning to throw away. After bringing it home, it turned on and worked perfectly, except for the lack of a startup disk. After getting the startup disks and trying to put them in, I realized the floppy drive wasn't taking them. Fast-forward a month, I opened it up, took it apart to down to the drive, and cleaned and fixed the floppy drive. When I put the whole thing back together, it started making this clicking/ticking/chirping noise, with no startup sound and a black screen. I've been through the whole thing, and can't im
  20. So I have a macintosh plus 1mb 120vac from 1987 and I have had some problems. so I picked this mac up at savers for $2 back in December and it looked like someone had it in a garage and also had put some bottle with some fluid on it that had leaked into it but had dried. When I turned it on it constantly made the start up sound and would some times respond with the floppy drives, no picture on the screen. The reasons I did not clean it first was to test the before and after affects so that I didn't damage anything in the process, and the other reason was I'm 16 and my dad wanted to only give i
  21. Hi, got a Mac Plus for a great deal but all it does is make a pop kind of noise, sort of like my Mac SE did when it was working well, I believe this is the CRT turning on, it also makes a tiny little whine, some of the large caps on the left look like their heat shrink has been pulled downwards. No picture, no chime, logic board looks great though. Can someone point me to a 220-240V Macintosh Plus analog board recap list? Could the PSU and flyback transformer be an issue too?
  22. I picked up a Macintosh Plus the other day. It boots just fine, but the mouse that came with it (model M0100) doesn’t move vertically. Horizontal movement and the button work, though. I cleaned the mouse thoroughly inside and out and confirmed continuity of the mouse wire and circuit paths on the mouse board, per this post. Swapping the X and Y wire pairs resulted in the capstans controlling the opposite directions as expected but vertical still didnt work, while horizontal still did, so it’s not the sensors. Now I’m at a loss where to go from here, since everything on the mouse se
  23. 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.
  24. Hi everyone! I have an Macintosh Plus with analog board U.S. version and i have this error code 01FA00, I can not find information about this error. I opened the computer and only found a burnt capacitor (C 39, 0.1uf - 250v). already replace it but the problem still, any ideas?
  25. I just opened up a new-to-me Plus and found a MaxChill (piezoelectric fan?) glued to the side of the floppy cage. I had to rip it off to get to the screw. Can someone explain to me what this does and why I need it?
