    Macintosh Classic Making weird static sound

    When it was recapped, did you thoroughly wash the board as well? I'm leaning more towards there being some crossed signals on the logic board

    Repair service for Mac 128k/512k?

    Does it come to life it you hit it on the side? These were notorious for cold solder joints on the wiring harnesses. And repair shop capable of novice soldering can handle that

    Replacements for 'blowing' rice-paper capacitors on Osborne1

    You should replace the secondary electrolytics as well, 3 of the Osbones I come across all of them were all dried out (2x 1 and 1x Exec)

    Osborne 1 Debug

    Maybe the membrane(s) sags and makes contact in places from being idle and the heat tightens it back up?

    Osborne 1 Single Density Boot Diskette

    I was able to make my floppies from downloaded (TD0) files with a PIII machine and its onboard FDC, and Epson SD800 combo 1.44/1.2 disk drive. TeleDisk seemed to want to work and the O1 booted from the disks up to a point (logo) but then filled the screen with garbage and froze (reset button...

    An industrial programmer running CP/M-86: Siemens S5 PG 685

    I didn't see any rule restricting to Z80 but this little guy runs an Intel 8088 @ 6MHz (I think) with 512KB RAM and a 20MB HDD on a backplane system. I could not find any Siemens software on it other than the licensed CP/M-86, and S5 PLC design files. I suspect maybe the designer/programmer...

    ca. 1985, it has an Intel 8088@4.77MHz, 256K RAM, a built-in printer, a 20MB HDD, and a plasma screen! I didn't research the machine before buying it, and no photos of it running were offered so I had no idea it would be plasma. IBM DOS 3 is installed, along with DEC GEM/3, Norton...

    ACME Portable PII/III, an industrial luggable
