WTB: Xceed SE/30 Harness

Hi all.

I have an SE/30, micron Xceed Color 30 and the original CRT board. But where did the internal wire-harness go? I have NO idea! So, if anybody knows of someone who makes them or have a spare (fat chance), I'm in the market!

TIA,
Anders

PS. The reason the harness is gone, is due to the fact the Xceed and the CRT option has been bought separately - some 5 years apart, actually. Bought the CRT board 5 years ago, and the Xceed only a fortnight ago.

good luck by itself

Anders,

I have an Xceed setup that I've toyed with the idea of parting with, but I wouldn't separate the harness from the card or CRT board.

I can, however, give you information about the harness. I helped another 'Fritterer (in a minor way) make a grayscale adapter, and he had to clone the harness. The connectors are still made and the wiring isn't THAT terrible. I doubt if anyone has a spare harness, but fabbing up one isn't an impossible task.

Many thanks

Hi Mike.

It would be super, if you could help me out with the wiring diagram for the harness - I have a picture of one, but it's hard to see, where each wire goes (top or bottom of connector).

(see diagram http://www.eskimo.com/~dslarsen/Micron/diagram.JPG)

Of other interest to forums users; I have a complete set of technical drawings and documentation for the Xceed Color 30HR card. So indeed one might try and attempt to build a card from new, with these drawings and some patience. If anyone would like these, let me know and I'll fiddle with the scanner and post some .pdf-files.

I have made a few....

Hey Anders,

I have made a few grayscale cards along with the harness... check out my site at: http://micronxceed.googlepages.com. Email me if you would like some help with the project.

I would be interested in the docs you mentioned.

Hi, I've emailed you a couple of times on the email address stated on your page, requesting a quote on a harness. Perhaps we could swap? I'll share the drawing and documentation anyway, I just wondered if one favor is worth another.

I'm off to the States on Tuesday, but I can mail scans of the drawings and other documentation when I return, early November.

cheers,
Anders

good!

You have indeed synced up with the gentleman I was referring to above. He did pretty work on the grayscale CRT board and harness. If I can help any further, let me know.
