Compact mac crt swaps?


Recommended Posts

Are you talking about the connector to the analog board or the connector on the CRT itself? I think the late model Classics and all Classic II CRTs have a different pinout to the earlier compact Macs. Perhaps you could swap the entire CRT neck board and splice the wires to the analog board, but I'm not sure about changing CRT sockets.

Why would you need to splice anything? 

 

Unscrew the locking screw, and just remove the whole yoke! 

 

Swap the CRT, put the proper yoke back on, plug the neck board in, and turn it on, check the picture centering, twist and turn the yoke to center it up and lock it back down by tightening the screw... 

 

I have a video on this very thing on youtube.

Nope, the CRT pinout is identical. 

 

Only thing you need to swap is the bare CRT. Save the yoke and etc from the original system.

 

Black and white CRT change-outs between alot of gear is the easiest thing to do in the tech industry. 

 

Color CRTs... WEll... not so much.
