Sigh . . . my first TAM! Laughing out loud

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=5106109465

Of course the TAM I buy has some oddball problem, on which I'll probably spend more to fix than a decent TAM would have cost in the first place! Tongue

Anyone know what this buzzing thing is all about? Google-time I guess.

Inverter...

I'm betting its the inverter. If you have a weak solder joint, it might just cause that buzzing. (i have stuck my finger on a live inverter and it started to buzz and the screen went dim while i was being electricuted.)

It might also be the flourcent tube that is driven by the inverter.

Good job on the 317 dollar price tag.

From what I have seen, thats pretty cheap.

You might want to try taking the screen apart and resoldering the joints for the invertor, espc ially the flourcent tube.

learning about TAM . . .

for the last couple of hours.

Out of all the stuff I found, I liked this the best:
http://tam.axon.net/spartintro.htm

Now I'm jazzed all over again about making a "new" TAM out of a TiBook. Laughing out loud

Funny thing, I really didn't expect to win the damn thing! I set a pretty low snipe, and came back a few hours later to find myself the new owner. Yikes!
