  1. Hey everyone, my apple IIc monitor is not working right. It's hard to see in the picture, but the whole screen is green with lines through it. Also the left side of the screen is dark. No amount of messing with the adjustments in the back has done anything. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Thanks everybody! I'll probably be getting discs through Ebay at some point.
  3. Just getting into the IIc and I want to use ADTPro to burn disk images so I'm going to need blank discs that actually work. If anyone is looking to get rid of some I would take them off your hands. If anyone is looking to get rid of ANYTHING IIc related, I might also be interested. Thanks!
  4. I am new to the vintage computing world, and I have finally gotten my IIc's disc drive to work. I often get the message "unable to load prodos." Is there a remedy to this situation? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Thank you very much for your responses. I will look into some of these solutions and see what I can do, because I really want to get this system up and running. I am completely fascinated by it. But being a college student doesn't help since I don't have much money[emoji23] Any insight into why the monitor is acting the way it was in the photo? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Thank you for the advice! I don't want to spend a ton of money so buying a new Apple //c might not be the move right now. How would I go about burning the code to a new ROM? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I just opened up the machine and did a dumb thing by unseating the keyboard rom chip and breaking two of the legs by mistake Now when I boot I am only seeing bars across the screen. Is there anywhere I can buy a new chip?
  8. Hello everyone, I was able to find an Apple IIc computer from a garage sale with tons of classic game floppys, the original monitor, external disc drive, power supply, mouse, and video modulator. I have never had any experience with vintage computing, but I am more than willing to learn. It's in kind of a rough state with plenty of dirt and grime, but I am having issues with the hardware functioning. First, the monitor is faded out on the left side so that I am unable to see anything typed there. There are also green lines extending across the screen. Secondly, every time I insert a disc into the drive, the message "check disc drive" shows up at the bottom of the screen. I have even tried triggering the external drive using the "PR#7" command, and it will do one of three things. First, it will simply say "check disc drive" again. Second, it will click and whir for a second, then the internal disc drive will start making grinding noises at a timed interval. Third, the disc will continue to spin, but there will be a series of characters at the bottom of the screen that look like this: X=XX (with the X's representing some letter or number). Any help finding a solution to these problems would be greatly appreciated. I would love to be able to use this machine for classic gaming, and to learn about classic computing. Picture of the issue are added:

    That would be extremely helpful
  10. It is very likely that I will purchase other items from him in the future
  11. Update: received my order yesterday and then rebuilt the controller today. What a HUGE difference it made. I am extremely impressed with this upgrade. Everything works perfectly and I can finally play my Atari 5200 the right way. I will definitely be placing an order for controller 2 in the future. Thanks everyone for your input!
  12. If anyone has either or both of these, I need them
