Mega Drive Circuit Board Repairs

A bunch of Sega Mega Drives came via the workbench recently, all looking for a 50/60hz mod and region unlocking. Two older Mega Drive 1s were in the batch and the first modded with zero concern. Unfortunately, the second wouldn't even boot... a quick opening of the case saw the reason:

210420175211377

This area of the circuit board is easily accessible from the cartridge slot and I can only assume that a screwdriver (or other sharp object) has been jammed in at some point, destroying a few traces. You'll also notice solder to the left, but that was me in a previous attempt to repair this. I tried again as I now have a USB Microscope and it really does work well for reviewing damage and making intricate repairs!

How not to repair it

I first-up thought I'd be able to use copper winding wire and simply solder to each pad where the IC contacts the circuit board.

210420182616201

From the shots above, you can see how quickly that process failed. The combination of using a soldering iron under a microscope, a large soldering tip and shakey hands meant that solder spread everywhere. Fortunately, solder wick cleaned all that up in no time.

Also how not to repair it

The next method was a little dodgy, but proved successful. From above, I knew i needed more room to solder, so the goal was to create this room by lifting and spreading the pins and running wires to the other end of the traces.

210420184735028

A multimeter found the other end of the traces and winding wire was attached.

210420182842266

Thanks to the tiny tweezers in the iFixit kit, I was able to bend, lift and then straighten the leftmost leg.

210420183049993

From there, the other legs were lifted easily.

210420183502119

Finally, they were all spread out both horizontally and vertically to make soldering as easy as possible. I then connected the right-most as it was only going as far as the local via.

210420185734059

With the wires hideously attached, I considered bending the legs back down... But a blind person could see my dodgy soldering job would make contact.

Instead? Glue gun to the rescue! Finally? Test. It worked!

Kangaroo Liner でGO!

2021's Timetable Revision is full of more surprises! First we had the innauguration of the new Fukuyama Rail Express from Ajikawaguchi to Morioka. Next up we have a new service known as the Kangaroo Liner, run by the Seino Group, from Nagoya to Fukuoka! The train is named after the companies' logo. Something quite similar to QANTAS, but backwards.

Above is the stock image that was sent out with all media online. I was very surprised to see a DF200 up-front... so-much-so that I thought there'd be a chance one would run the service! The media releases indicated that the train wouldn't be full of Kangaroo-only containers and that there'd be space available for other operators to hitch a ride.

Westbound Service

The first train to leave was the westbound service from Nagoya to Fukuoka. At 2012 on March the 29th, the service departed and passed the Nagoya Station Camera not long after.

As you're watching the start of the video, you might be ready to tell me that it's "not the right train!"... but as the consist keeps rolling through the camera, you'll see that the Kangaroo-liveried containers are all piled on the rear. As mentioned above, there was always going to be spare room on the rake of flat wagons and the company was very happy to accommodate other operator's containers.

After travelling west, it then passed the Mukomachi Live Cam with quite a few more Kangaroo containers on-board!

From here, the Shin-Osaka cam picked it up, but it there was less-than-zero visibility. Unfortunately, there's no other cameras to the west to capture the action!

Eastbound Service

Due to this limited visibility out west, the first spot the train was seen was the Shin-Osaka Live Cam. The eastbound service seems to have at-least half a loading of Kanga-tainers.

After a stop-over at Suita, the train passed the Mukomachi Live Cam on time.

And then finally, back through the Nagoya Station Camera.

Looking forward to seeing these in real life... at some point... in the distant future.

Apple eMate 300 – Battery Refurb

Whilst fixing the hinges in my eMate 300, I noticed that there were also links to replacing the batteries. That link shows how to replace with proper cells, but it turns out that you could also use a battery holder.

DSC03021

I bought a full kit of bits to do the latter, but then realised that the installation required hacking out the existing cage for the battery. Not wanting to do this, I fell back to the soldering idea and wished I'd bought batteries with solder tabs instead of just standard AA-style cells.

Anatomy of a Battery Pack

The eMate 300 battery back has a socket with 5 pins/4 wires, a thermistor, 4 cells and a temperature switch at the far end. When replacing the cells, remember to keep everything but the actual cells themselves.

DSC02433

Peel the plastic off and then de-solder or cut all contacts. And keep the temperature switch!

DSC03050

Solder everything back together in the same order...

DSC03030 DSC03033 DSC03035

And then jam it back in the plastic case that it all came in...

DSC03082

If you're in luck...

DSC03094

You'll have a charging battery!

Testing it...

There doesn't seem to be an SSH client for the Newton (although people have tried), so I thought I'd go for Telnet. It seems easy to do over a serial cable, but I want to do it over Wifi! Thankfully there's the PT100v1.1 Client available over at United Network of Newton Archives.

DSC03099

Installing this got me a prompt... but a swift disconnection when trying to log in. But, the battery is still showing full charge after minimal use over two days! Win.

Fukuyama Rail Express でGO!

The Fukuyama Rail Express is an express rail-freight service run by Fukuyama Transporting Co, Ltd. Regarding rail-freight, they previously only operated a service from East-Fukuyama to Tokyo.

Here's a shot of that service from my travels in 2019, running past Shin-Osaka Station behind an EF66.

As of yesterday, a new service has been innaugurated from Ajikawaguchi (Osaka) to Morioka!

Service 60

Thanks to Japan's love of live-cameras, I was able to follow the service in both directions. Actually, as I start to write this post, both trains are still running both north and south. Anyway, let's rewind and check out what happened.

Light Engine to Ajikawaguchi

The northbound service started at Ajikawaguchi, just next to Universal Studios Japan in Osaka. To get the rake of beautifully-shiny containers out of the port, an engine was needed. EF210-156 was sourced from Suita and sent to Ajikawaguchi at around 1930 on the 23rd of March, 2021. Here it is passing the Shin-Osaka Live Cam.

It then passed the webcam near Fukushima Station.

Ajikawaguchi to Morioka

With the loco in place, the next step was to run the service! The consist ended up passing the Fukushima Camera around ~4 minutes behind schedule thanks to a late-running Haruka Airport Express.

Back to the Shin-Osaka Live Cam, it was nearly impossible to see it pass... but the audio is awesome in the night air!

Next up, it passed the Mukomachi Live Cam, amongst all the other freights and services.

A while later, it passed through Nagoya Station. Note the Shinkansen track vehicles working away also. That's a huge Tamper!

There's a great cam between Fuji and Shizuoka (which I've discussed before, recording times) and the train was seen passing through.

As that the train took the Niiza route through Tokyo, we couldn't see it on the Akabane or Shinjuku Cameras. Therefore the next and final camera was the Omiya Camera. The EH500 would've been swapped on at Shin-Tsurumi.

And that was it for the northbound. Congratulations Fukuyama Transport! Fortunately, we still had the southbound to stalk.

Morioka to Ajikawaguchi

The southbound left Morioka on the same night at 1908. It therefore passed the Omiya Camera before the northbound at around ~0450.

Whilst waiting for it at the Fuji cam, the northbound original Fukuyama Rail Express from East-Fukuyama passed by!

A little while later, the southbound was seen passing.

Next up was Nagoya Station.

And another guest came through an hour later...

And then again at Mukomachi Live Cam, right up the back, top-right, look really close!...

And since we're still waiting for the Fukuyama Rail Express to get to Mukomachi, here's Doctor Yellow passing Torikai to Shin-Osaka.

Whilst 'waiting at Mukomachi Live Cam', an EF65 passed towing a DD200!

And then, the main event at Mukomachi Live Cam.

Back through the Shin-Osaka Live Cam.

Through the Southern-Side Shin-Osaka Cam, one minute earlier if you believe system clocks... Also, this camera was down the previous evening when the inaugural service ran...

And then the final shot of the day! Past the Osaka Loop Line at Fukushima.

And that's a wrap!

Power Mac 6100/66 DOS Compatible – MIDI Out

After building the 'hydra cable' for this DOS Compatible machine, I quickly found out that the Joystick port could not be used for MIDI input/output. There were numerous hints online, and they all resulted to the fact that we'd need to solder a pin on the Vibra16 IC to get midi to the port. Here's the module removed from the DOS card. The CT2501 IC nearly takes up the entire board.

DSC02950 DSC02956 DSC02958

I was able to re-wire all of the below as I created my own hydra cable. I wouldn't suggest trying to modify an off-the-shelf cable as they're a sealed unit and have many pins incorrectly wired at the joystick-port-end.

Determining the correct pin

I'd asked online for help from someone who'd already worked out the solution, but hadn't received a quick answer. After rummaging through my junk boxes, I realised I didn't have a card with the correct CT2501 chipset, so I asked a few friends also. No one had the exact model required, so I considered purchasing one on eBay. They were averaging about one-hundred-dwollar shipped, so I decided to try and find high resolution photos online instead.

It turns out that dosdays has a fantastic library of information on the SB16. Included are high-enough-res photos of the rear of the board that allowed me to easily trace pin 12 (MIDI OUT) back to the CT2501 IC. Pin 15 (MIDI IN) wasn't so easy as it disappears under the 74-series IC in the bottom left of the top-side of the board. Fortunately, my main goal was to just get DOOM II throwing MIDI out to my SC-88.

sb16-bottom sb16-top ct2500-close-up

After sitting in Paint.NET for a while, tracing traces, I came to the conclusion that MIDI OUT was Pin 30 of CT2501. In the pictures above, I've traced this in RED on the underside-shot of the board and YELLOW on the zoomed in CPU picture. MIDI IN is traced in BLUE on the underside-shot, but then disappears on the top half under the IC. Images from the web don't provide enough detail to allow me to continue the search! I was happy with just MIDI OUT, so I then started the quick hack-job to solder on a test wire...

ct2501-close-up ct2501-close-up-2 ct2501-close-up-soldered

In no time at all, DOOM II was outputting its soundtrack into my headphones.

DSC02980

Usually I'd pipe the audio-out from the SC-88 back into the soundcard of the computer that it was connected to, but that's not an option here with the Power Mac 6100 as it only has Microphone In! Oh wait, can I also wire-up Line-In for the DOS Card? I don't think that'd be as straight-forward as I'm sure there'd be a DAC and other components on the path.

External Connections

The port at the back only needed to be one wire, so I initially used an RCA socket.

DSC02986 DSC02992 DSC02999

I then realised I had no spare RCA plugs on-hand, so I switched the socket to a 3.5mm mono audio jack. This looked nicer anyway.

DSC03017

From here, a headphone cable was wired through with one of the channels running to pin 12 on the joystick port. This was then plugged into the SC-88 and DOOM II WAS PLAYED AT FULL VOLUME!

Power Mac 6100/66 – DOS Compatible + MIDI

I couldn't resist this over-sized-pizza-box when I saw it on Facebook Marketplace. I never really check that area of the web, as the interaction mechanism is too loose... half the time you never even get a response from sellers and it doesn't feel real-time enough to trust if anything is actually available. Anyway, I threw a curve-ball offer and the seller responded (6 hours later)! The unit was picked up in short time, well actually... I had to wait for Victoria's 5-day lockdown to end. Yes, that was a while ago! It's been sitting in the junk room waiting for a video adapter cable thanks to it's HDI-45 video plug.

DSC02866

It's a beautiful unit. A much larger pizza-box than the LCs and it's even DOS Compatible!

Period-Correct Screen

By the time the video adapter cable came from America, I was ready to test the unit. I'd actually recently picked up a Trinitron monitor from the tip shop and it also needed testing! After a good sanitisation all round, everything was plugged together. To connect the Mac to the Monitor, I needed the HDI-45 to DB-15 adapter and then another DB-15 to DE-15 to get to VGA standards. With everything connected I got nothing... just a black screen... but I did get a startup bong! Myoldmac has a great reference on the video adapter settings and I had to use this as my adapter seems to have lost its packaging and the settings sticker on the actual unit. After a miriad of tests, the correct answer was to have 'separate sync' configured.

1614851778804

Ok, with a picture showing, I could now configure resolutions... only up to 832x624? What gives? Oh, This machine has 640kb of non-upgradeable VRAM limiting my choices. There's a good write-up here describing its system limitations. Turns out the AV Model has a separate card with 2MB allowing more resolutions on an external monitor. That wont work for me though... I have a DOS card in there!

MIDI By Roland

Before we get to DOS, let's just get my external SC-88 going. It's got a serial connection and I've always wanted to test it. Firstly, grab a game that'll support it and get that installed. Actually, there're too many options to choose from there. For fun, I'll load up DOOM II as, well, it has the easiest gameplay and a great soundtrack!

Picture-1

Grab a standard serial cable, make sure you choose a port that's free (i.e. not in-use by AppleTalk as you won't get a single message and it'll just not-work) and plug it all together. Make sure the SC-88 is set to "Mac" and that it has been power cycled since that switch was changed. Then power up the Macintosh. Don't expect anything to be hot-pluggable! But even then, nothing would be visible in the Quicktime Settings.

At this point in time, you can look over here for hints and then here for cable wiring and then here for the Roland manual and keep guessing why that Quicktime panel doesn't work... but don't bother.

No amount of cable-foolery got the basic Quicktime Installation to enable the General Midi checken-boxen. Instead, I software-foolery'd around until a version of OMS both extracted and installed. Note, if you've just installed MacOS, do not use the version of StuffIt from the Internet Utilities folder. It's archaic and will fail to extract things. Make sure you get a recent version installed first!

Picture-8

Picture-13 Picture-11 Picture-14

I need to discuss the middle shot above. It's telling you that, if AppleTalk is enabled, one of your Serial ports might be in use and the CPU will also be under pressure. Fortunately, our AppleTalk config is over Ethernet, so no Serial ports are in use! Is this software version for Macs with zero Ethernet capabilities? Eek... Anyway... auto-detect away!

Picture-15 Picture-16 Picture-17

Picture-18

Haha.. it found 16 Roland SC-88s... If I was a rich man? Must download some Beatles. After this, many duplicates were cleaned up until there was only one. From there, I scrolled down to check the other port...

Picture-19

The Yamaha MU80 didn't fair as well... it itself threw an ILLEGAL COMMAND error and the software decided it was a shitty Modem.

DSC02935

So.. just force it in the settings...

Picture-21

And then try again...

DSC02938

Music! Doom II sounded amazing.

DOS Compatible

PC Setup was already installed on the hideously-themed OS. I tried to boot it up, but the screen just went black! Turns out that unlike the previous Power Mac 7220, this one needed an external cable to route the video through. Googlin' around, there were a few options/schematics, but unfortunately this specific Power Mac had the HDI-45 Video port and therefore needed a hydra cable containing a different pinout. Thanks to the internet though, someone has already done the build and the pinout was available (and more over here). Here it is again for safe-keeping:

25 3 (CSYNC)
26 10 (SENSE2) 10 (SENSE2)

Each of the three plugs coming off the main plug need 13 wires each! I don't think I've ever had a standard 'round' cable in my arsenal that had more than 8 wires. Maybe I should trash a printer cable? Maybe I'll just heat-strink single-strands? If I cut the heat-strink up enough, it can 'telescope' down when I'm soldering and then I can slide the pieces up, bit-by-bit? Looking a bit like bamboo? It won't be too flexible though!

DSC02822

I started chopping up wires to use for the individual pins... until it occurred to me that pins were shared across all three secondary plugs. How does one share a wire succesfully? I'd actually need to construct 1-to-2/3 wires that split out into the differing plugs. At the final plug end, they can bridge all the pins they need to, but they need to get there first, without causing wire bridges 'outside' the initial plug housing.

DSC02834

So, with this in mind, I twisted two or three wires together where the ground feed needed to be distributed. I even used resistor legs to shift the major solder blob away from the plug solder pins.

DSC02836 DSC02839 DSC02842

Somewhere around the middle photo above I went slightly insane... and slept. Soldering and routing that many wires was a nightmare!

DSC02859

IT WAS EVEN WORSE ONCE A SINGLE END PLUG WAS ON!

DSC02862

But finally, a hydra-sorta-styled cable was assembled. All wiring was double-checked and then it was plugged together:

DSC02888 DSC02892 DSC02899

No way. It worked. I re-loaded the DOS image hard disk file from the original installation of Mac OS and found a copy of Win95B with an app that seemed to be a collection of "The Age" articles. Who-the-fxxx would want to have a source of that trash?

DSC02901 DSC02903 DSC02906

Unfortunately, it seems that all the data was on CD! So I shut it down.

DSC02907

Shiiiit.. haven't seen that in a LOOOOOONG while. I then tried to shut down the actual Macintosh... after Apple-Return switching back to MacOS...

DSC02915

What dat? Does this thing have an actual physical clicky power switch? i.e. non-atx-style soft power off? I pushed it and it did indeed click! I never noticed when turning it on!

MIDI via the DOS Joystick Port?

I was really hoping to hook up my Roland SC-88 to the joystick port, but no go. A quick google of pinouts shows that MIDI TX/RX signals are on pins 12 and 15 and these are tied to +5V and GND, which means it's actually REALLY DANGEROUS to hook up any MIDI device to this joystick-only port. Actually, I blab a lot on here, so let's just re-make that point...

Power Mac 6100/66 DOS Compatible Card Warning

DO NOT plug ANY form of MIDI equipment into the Joystick Port of a Power Mac 6100/66 DOS Compatible Card.

Looking at the cable pinout table further above, it shows that we also don't have any spare pins on the 26-pin plug from the DOS card to squeeze MIDI through, so no wonder they prioritised video over the game port. Interestingly though, couldn't they have possibly spared two of those ground wires to pass MIDI data through?

It then occurred to me that we might be able to route the MIDI data through the Macintosh' Serial Port. To do this, I first connected my SC-88 (which has a very convenient Macintosh Serial Port on it!) to the Printer port and configured PC Setup to route COM1 to this.

From here, I downloaded and installed softmpu. This driver loads into RAM and intercepts all calls to the IO of the MPU on the Sound Card. The DOS Card fully supports the MPU, it's just that the output pins are literally un-wired! So, with the virtual tap, we can send the MIDI data out to COM1 instead, which is then virtually connected to the Macintosh Printer Port which is then hard-wired to the SC-88!

But it didn't work... softmpu just froze up the DOS side whenever executed.

Can we wire up the MIDI Port?

I then did a bit of Googlin' about those missing traces from the CT2501 Vibra 16 chipset. It seems that many have discussed it before, but each time it's ended in silence. Macintosh Garden's Comment Thread even tells me that it would've never worked and half of me wished I'd read that at the start as I probably would've not even bothered to wire up the port!

In 2019, BaldGoldEagle brought up the exact topic again on Vogons and got a good amount of detail, even after a direct bit of abuse from someone who didn't quite listen at the start (yeah, I'm talkin'bout you derSammler). The basic answer was to find a PC soundcard that has the same chipset (CT2260, CT2810, PB3110, CT3110, CT3930) and trace the pins to the port to work out what we'd need to build. The thread ended with a user offering to do so, but then the usual silence... I've just replied to see if anything came about!

A little more googlin' brought up a beautiful post dishing out on all of the DOS cards as they were built. Hilariously, the Houdini cards were mentioned as supporting MIDI! That was quickly corrected in the replies and the same result was reached: crickets.

I'll post again about MIDI once I've worked on it all a little more. (This now works! More information here!)

Arcade1Up Hacking

Thanks to some heavy coin-pusher usage at a local amusement center, this unit was 'won' and dragged home on the train. Pretty funny watching everyone watching me carrying a box'o'arcade machine on public transport!

20210122 194927

20210122 195931

In no time the machine was upright and SF2 was being played. All very nostalgic from both childhood and ... exactly 10 years and 10 days ago when I built MAME controllers from MS Keyboards.

20210122 211203

20210122 211301 20210122 212935 20210122 213844

20210122 215418

The unit came with 3 versions of SF2, but it was never my intention to keep it stock. The unit itself would provide a perfect base to build a fully-fledged arcade machine with all the games of my childhood!

The Base Hardware

The unit has an AllWinner ARM SOC built into a case mounted behind the screen. It's a tiny board that wont be easy to flash or extend. This actually means that there's a ridiculous amount of free space in the bottom of the unit as the actual electronics are tiny.

The ARM board would be difficult to re-flash and would also be limited with storage, so the decision was quickly made to replace the guts. Fortunately I could still use the screen and controls.

The New Hardware and Software

To use the screen, I had to purchase a controller board. It seems that the Arcade1Up guys have used a screen that's popular in other actual LCD monitors and therefore the boards are easy to come by. I found one on eBay... just search for LCD Controller Board For HSD190MEN4 M170EN06 17 inch D2K4. Pretty cryptic, but it's the model of the LCD.

s-l1600

With this unit swapped in, I now had VGA/HDMI/DVI access to the LCD! From here, I grabbed the nearest motherboard which happened to be an AMD Sempron X2 with 16GB RAM. I initially tried to use a GTX970 as well, but the compatibility with retro Linux distros wasn't up to scratch and therefore just stuck with the onboard video.

The controllers were wired in with USB Joystick Interfaces from Jaycar. They both were really plug-and-play and it meant I just had to unplug the controllers from the current distribution board and plug them into this one.

Choosing an OS can be difficult as there are a few great options: Lakka and Recalbox. I can't remember why I didn't enjoy Recalbox.

Slow Boot

I had initially installed a spare 1TB SSD, but found out quickly that it was unhealthy. I hadn't guessed it was the issue to start with, until I enabled SSH and reviewed dmesg.

Eek. Seems my SSD is faulty! I switched to another drive and that solved the issue seeing the machine boot in a few seconds. It turns out that other humans have added kernel boot params to get around the issues with the old drive, but I really didn't need all that space!

Controller mapping?

Here I was expecting a standard for RetroArch, but it seems everyone has their own ideas. And you know what?, I'm cool with that... It allows me to customise everything on my side also... just means a bit more configuration-work. I started with SF2 on MAME2010 engine (assuming the latest was the best?) and quickly found out that P2's keys weren't fully mapped. 1,2,3 and 5 were, but 4 and 6 were missing! No varied kicking in SF2! I hit TAB to check out the configuration inside MAME:

DSC02804

Ok, so it's BAY along the top buttons and XLR along the bottom. This all matched to the Lakka config, but the buttons still just wouldn't work. A quick google saw it to be an un-fixed issue. Switching back to mame2003 fixed it! But then introduced another issue: You need to switch the default controller to digital and make sure the input is simultaneous (keyboard + retropad):

DSC02805

The above shot shows how to get to the config... press F1 when in-game and scroll down to Options. It's a bit daunting, but works fine for all games after the settings are adjusted.

Extra Buttons Required

So, the standard machine has 6 buttons, a joystick and a 'start' button per player. This is great for Street Fighter on free-play, but not so good for a machine with multiple games. To get around this, I bought some arcade buttons from Jaycar and designed+printed a piece of plastic to house them off the side of the machine. I also had to but longer screws as the provided four only bit in about 2mm with the standard controller face.

DSC02800

The goal was an ATX power power switch (using the LED inside to act as the power LED), a coin button for each player and finally a reset-to-menu button. The final button's LED was also wired into the HDD activity LED.

DSC02820

This provided all the buttons required to play everything in the system. The Power button also nicely worked to shutdown the system, as a single press whilst the machine was running would cause a soft power-down!

Playlists

Lakka defines a playlist as a group of ROMs linked to an engine, under an icon in the main menu. It tried to guess all this by itself when you do a full directory scan and it's gotten it wrong every time I've used it. Your best bet is to dump all your ROMs over in one hit, run the scan directory, then jump back on the network share and merge the lists.

lakkalists

You can see above that I had Final Burn up there somehow as well? All the ROMs I introduced were just for MAME, so I have no idea how it CRC-matched them to another system. Anyway, the merging is simple as the file-format is JSON. Once done, delete the old files and restart retro-arch.

Finally, don't expect everything to work...

Just dragging and dropping ROMs from your downloads to the game machine, scanning and running will work with limited success. When you're acquiring things, make sure you check the hierarchy on some sites as they show you that, more-often-than-not, parent ROMs are required. Some ROMs are just old dumps with internal files missing in the ZIPs, so get ready to merge and re-test.

One note with Lakka is that it doesn't easily tell you what the issue is. Usually you'll just get a "Failed to load xXX". When this happens, SSH into the machine and type the following:

Apple iBook G3 – Keyboard Refurbishment

This thing was found at a flea market in very poor condition. The CD tray was hanging out and wouldn't latch back in, every open orifice was caked with dirt and there were zero accessories. Fortunately, the iBook G4 I'd previously revived had the same power supply, so I knew how to build one.

DSC02446

After a very superficial clean, I soldered the required 2.5mm jack onto spare wire and applied power. It chimed and presented a dude-where's-my-hard-disk screen... not surprised at all as there was absolutely no sound made from the HDD corner. Fortunately, these are standard-issue replaceable parts, right? Just a few screws?

A Full Tear-Down

I started pulling the unit apart and felt like I'd fallen down a rabbit hole! Keyboard out, top shell off, bottom shell off ... but still no HDD... it was under metal shielding... what is this? An Amiga 1200?

DSC02462 DSC02465 DSC02467

DSC02473

I thought I'd check iFixit to see if there were any tutorials and found that I've made it up to around step 33 and that there were 11 more steps to go! WTF... why so hard? The HDD showed no signs of life when the machine powered up, so I needed to continue. I'm sure I could work out where all those screws went later.

DSC02476

Finally, the HDD was out. It's a stock-standard 2.5" Laptop IDE HDD and I had a junk box full to replace in. Unfortunately, the first 10! that I tried also showed no signs of life. I then tried a Seagate (these scare me the most with regards to reliability) and it booted... it was also 20gb larger than the 40gb prior HDD, so... let's do it.

Which OS?

Finding an OS that would boot/install was the next challenge. These units supposedly came with both OS 9.2.2 and OSX 10.2.1 installed? I'll stick with just OS9, but there seems to be a large selection of installation media available. There's an iBook G3 restore CD there, but I just kept getting the following crash... and it didn't seem to have the correct display drivers.

DSC02513

So, I opted for the OS 9.2.2 Universal ISO over here. You'll need to sign up, but it's worth it for access to their amazing library of old OS installation media!

DSC02495

DSC02554 DSC02557 DSC02564

DSC02563

Very nice, we're up in full-colour and functionality! Note the open-cdrom-surgery... it works perfectly fine when taped down to the table to keep the tray shut! Nice to see it spin/seek when loading.

Pink Screen Artefacts

Screen still had hints of pink... some said backlight, but has to be black channel missing on ribbon cable?

DSC02491

Popping the screen open isn't so hard... four screws and then a little encouragement around the edges. Looks clean enough inside.

DSC02532

Let's just tinker with that LCD ribbon cable anyway...

DSC02542

Haha... a little force, pushing the plug back into the socket, totally fixed the display issues!

Cleaning the Keyboard

This is a serious undertaking. The membrane has LEDs like the one I ripped off the PowerBook DUO 230, but instead of just popping keys off, you need to unhook them with a lot more care!

DSC02570

DSC02579

Underneath each key is a scissor-lift style mechanism that's clipped at both ends under the key face. One end is easier to un-clip and just needs a bit of force between the back of the key and the arm of the mechanism to pop it out. Once done, the other end un-hooks.

DSC02595 DSC02603 DSC02611

DSC02613

With all keys off, the devastation was real. This poor keyboard needed a lot of love.

DSC02632

The top keyboard membrane is non-electronic and just holds the rubber buttons in place.

DSC02637

The second is multi-layer and does the actual key contact. It also has the ribbon cable that runs down to the motherboard.

DSC02639

Finally, there's a metal plate underneath which is actually two metal plates combined.

DSC02634

DSC02641

Don't bother trying to peel off the rear instructional sticker as it wont help you remove the metal shielding.

DSC02644

If there's dirt then just grab a brush and some detergent and give it a good once-over. I had initially thought that the sticker underneath had provided a sticky surface for gunk to adhere to, but it turns out that something must have been spilled on the board. The gunk was just sitting on the metal shield that was exposed through the holes in the main metal plate.

DSC02665

A lot of isopropyl alcohol and que-tips (ear buds!) were used to clean up the membrane layers. I didn't want the chance of any moisture getting into the plastic. Also, as per the previous PowerBook, watch out for the LEDs! You'll rip them off if you apply too much pressure.

DSC02671 DSC02674 DSC02708

In the end, make sure that everything has a good chance to dry. Use a USB Keyboard if you need to type in passwords or play Sim City 2000.

DSC02713 DSC02716 DSC02719

DSC02724

Putting it back together was a pretty straight forward process. In total, cleaning that keyboard took a good 4 hours all-up and ... budget for it. Don't rush as those key mechanisms won't suffer too much torture.

DSC02730

I was really surprised that I didn't make a mistake that would've trashed the whole keyboard! Meanwhile, the lighting is terrible in ALL of these shots, now that I look back over them. The keyboard really did end up cleaner!

Internal Optical Drive

So, this laptop was picked off the ground at the flea market and the optical drive was just hanging out the side. I straight away tried to push it back in, but there was no latch and it sprung out again. Being an apple, there's no eject button and, as per all laptop CD drives, it's spring-loaded so that it pops out enough, but not too far, to allow disc extraction/insertion.

Whilst the keyboard was drying above, I pulled apart the CD drive to see what was going on.

DSC02480

Immediately obvious was the jagged edge on the plastic strip where the locking mechanism is meant to be caught. The actual actuator that locks/unlocks the drive is the in the tray itself and it is meant to latch onto a notch on the side rail inside the drive housing. With no notch available, the drive wont latch shut and therefore wont spin up. I successfully used tape to keep it shut and install software, but that was never going to last long.

DSC02675

For fun, I grabbed my oldest external USB CD drive and popped it all-the-way open to see what the notch might look like. I had no idea if this drive would have matching internals, but I tried anyway. Little would I realise that the drive was a 99% match with the actual unit in the Mac! The data plug fit, the screws even lined up!

DSC02685

The only thing that didn't match was the external bezel... and no amount of mushing would get the Apple bezel to fit. Instead, I trimmed off an edge on the PC drive and installed it in the iBook. Worked like a charm! From here, I'll try and measure-up a plastic piece to print and install into the original optical drive.

Apple eMate 300 – Fixing The Hinges

After pulling the eMate 300 apart and finding two faulty hinges and a punctured ribbon cable, I outsourced the hinges to a friend who is very handy mechanically (Thanks Andrew!). They were returned this weekend past looking fantastic.

20210228 122843

The basic idea was to pull the clutch springs off each hinge, put the stem in the vice and unwind the coils. Due to repeated folding of the laptop, the springs had wound themselves around the hinges and shortened far enough to lose contact.

20210228 123344 20210228 124205 20210228 125342(1)

The springs had been lengthened once again and screwed down tight. The stiffness was also just hard-enough, but it'd be difficult to tell how it'd perform until the entire unit was back together. I was eager to get started on the re-assembly, but the ribbon cable had to be dealt with first.

DSC02395DSC02397 DSC02412

This was also simple enough. Scrape back the coating on the tracks that needed to be bridged. This happened to be the two right-most tracks and fortunately they spread apart as they turned the damaged corner. Note that, as the ribbon turns the corner, it is split in half and doubled-up. When applying heat, you'll want to put a divider between the ribbons so that you don't cook the other side!

I just happened to have a receipt from a recent trip to the post office which worked fine. One interesting note is that the receipt turned black, thanks to it being made of thermal paper, as I applied heat when soldering.

The ribbon was then complete and tested quickly with a multimeter. Not easy, as the pins at each end were way too close together... but I was happy with the result. From here... get it back together!

DSC02416

The only real notes are to make sure you have the PCMCIA and Serial covers in first before the motherboard. Also then make sure the LCD ribbon is clear of the stands top-left and that the volume and contrast sliders line up with the controls underneath.

DSC02418 DSC02421 DSC02422

Once together, everything was tested and, somehow, it all worked perfectly!? What's next? Rebuild that battery and get AppleTalk over Wifi working properly.

Sony VAIO PCG-Z505R – Booting From The PCMCIA Drive

This has always been on the wish-list and one appear on a Facebook group recently. It came with an external CD drive, but no power adapter. Fortunately, third-party adapters are easy to find on eBay and one arrived in no time at all. A port replicator also then arrived as someone was selling one for cheap and, honestly, there's no competition as no one else has a Unicorn laptop that needs one!

DSC02310

Such a nice design. The colour instantly tells you it's a Vaio.

Cosmetic Issues

The unit wasn't without its flaws. Both screen hinge covers were loose in the packaging when it arrived. The main issue is that the tab/lugs have been partially destroyed. The bases where they're meant to click in are also unhealthy.

DSC02312 DSC02316 DSC02318

The right pillar between the main base of the laptop and the screen hinge is also in a bad way. The plastic shell has actually been glued down as, presumably, the clips holding it down have also been erroneously removed. It also looks like a washer or coin was sitting on the speaker and the unit was then closed, creating a circular impression in the plastic. The speakers are also a little distorted on low volume. I must admit, the seller never mentioned any of this. Finally, the unit, all around, has dints and scratches... but, well, wouldn't I just do the same damage to it if it was in my care anyway?

Installing Win98SE

The unit came with XP installed, but it wasn't running as quickly as I'd like. The unit only had 128mb RAM, so I opted for Win98SE. The CD started booting from the external drive, but the base OAK/ASPI drivers couldn't find the CD-ROM! I then realised that Sony's PCG-CD51A External PCMCIA CD-ROM Drive is proprietary (not really surprising for Sony!) and doesn't work with generic drivers.

Instead, use this boot disk and burn it to a CD as the boot image, with the win98 folder as the guts. If you try to roll your own, you may get the following error:

DSC01561

Just for search results, let's represent it as text:

The following file is missing or corrupted: VA16CD.SYS
There is an error in your CONFIG.SYS file on line 3

VA16CD.SYS Corrupt or missing!? The file is on the boot disk, and when booting from a USB floppy with the standard PCG-CD51A boot disk, it'll work fine. Once you try to burn that img as a boot floppy to a CD image, it will fail miserably.

The point is that, as soon as you load the VA16365.SYS driver, it re-initialises the PCMCIA bus and throws A:\ in the bin. A:\ was virtual anyway, being the boot floppy image on the CD, and so when the boot disk then tries to load, A:\ is no longer accessible! Instead, I hacked around with CONFIG.SYS and AUTOEXEC.BAT to load the drivers later.

Going into a little more detail, VA16CD.SYS needs to be loaded in CONFIG.SYS and requires that VA16365.SYS be loaded first. Of course, if you do that, A:\ disappears and then CONFIG.SYS fails trying to find VA16CD.SYS as it continues to load. I tried a lot of things to prevent VA16365.SYS from trashing the boot-disk access, but nothing worked... it really seems to want to re-init the PCMCIA bus.

I then managed to find a work-around! I crafted a boot image that uses DEVICE.COM from QEMM to load the SYS drivers later. With the SYS driver files skipped in CONFIG.SYS, the boot process gets to AUTOEXEC.BAT and the standard RAM drive is initialised as per the Win98SE boot disk. Once up, I then copy everything from A:\ over to it, switch to it and then proceed to load the SYS files via DEVICE.COM and then MSCDEX.

DSC02304

It works, but there's a caveat! You'll get errors that A:\ is missing as it's still in the path... oh... maybe I should unset it from the path. Anyway, the image above will let you boot from the Sony PCG-CD51A PCMCIA CD-ROM. Just hit F when the failure message comes up and switch to D:\ or E:\ to start the install.. fdisk... file-copy, etc...

I installed Win98SE from C:\WINSETUP. When it booted, all the drivers were missing, so I tried to install Red Hat instead.

Linux for a PII-366 w/ 128mb RAM

I found a link to another Sony laptop where the user had installed Red Hat Linux 7.2 with a CDE-style WM known as DeXtop. Of course, trying to find Red Hat Linux (not Enterprise!) nowadays is a pain since they chose to rename/reuse the name/numbering for the new versions. I first checked Winworld PC, but they only had v5.0. Looking closer, you'll see a link to Red Hat's Linux Archive and from there, you can find the ISOs for Red Hat Linux 7.2. But those links don't work, so get the ISOs from here.

DSC02330

I then failed to get it even installed as it seems the laser in my external PCMCIA drive is failing miserably. Somehow, I had another PCG-CD51A in my PCMCIA junk box! Same CD error though!? Let's re-burn with a different CDR brand and the slowest speed.

Finally installed, why is it trying to initialise ETH0 on each boot? Oh shite, there's actually an ethernet adapter inside, but I'm missing the dongle?

z505r-ethernet

There is no actual option to disable it in the BIOS, so we'll have to disable it at startup script located in /etc/system/network-scripts edit the ifcfg-eth0 file and change ONBOOT to no.

Next, no sound. Video was nicely initialised, but audio just didn't work. Turns out this thing has a NeoMagic 256AV Sound device and people already have workarounds. Turns out all it actually needed was for me to run sndconfig!

Finally, I tried a PCMCIA Ethernet card. I had a Laneed nearby, but there was no off-the-shelf driver, so without networking I gave up on RH7.2 from there.

I was about to just give up, but then tried to configure WiFi. I had already purchased some really old/compatible cards for the eMate. These should surely work with Red Hat? One is a legit Linksys/Cisco Orinoco/Wavelan, so it must just work... Supposedly I can just run the neat command and set everything up?

DSC02363

It worked pretty well. The first was a Linksys WPC11, but it just wouldn't associated with my guest network access point. The eMate did though! Maybe this thing is way too old, being a REV 1. I'll have to do some more digging and work out how to correctly set up WiFi. This can go back in the box for now.
