Apple II Clone found in poor condition, with some unknown to me assemblies
Hi i am Thomas from Germany.
I was a week ago, i caught the Apple fever than I could accidentally buy an Apple II clone favorable.
Unfortunately, this has been experienced with some modifications, as a layman I do not quite understand at the moment.
I made a couple of photos showing the condition of the Apple II when he came to me.
For more accurate look at me too many errors on a few terms of the ability to function.
The power supply was only a click by itself, and it lacked some operating voltages,
as it turned out was a burnt resistor of the reason why the power supply was not possible.
Right now I've changed the resistor. And I could make the first attempts with the Apple II.
When I plugged the FDC then let nothing go first because of the Apple II probably stuck in a routine depends
on the load I can not cancel because I do not know which key on this keyboard triggers the reset.
I pulled out the card first and partly filled with ADTPro ProDos and Dos3.3. That went pretty well over the audio input.
Now I wanted to format a couple of floppy disks and reloading the systemfiles on it.
Which unfortunately did not go because I have not got it to work the FDC.
I do not know exactly how I find out the shortcut for the reset?
The Char Rome has been replaced with German character set on an EPROM (2732). Either I'm building now a keyboard adapter for PS / 2, and burn in a 2716 or 2732 EPROM the American character set. Or I find another way. My questions are:
How do I solve a reset without the original keyboard?
Who can tell me what these are all for plug-in cards on the pictures?
For what are the Eprom sockets on the motherboard F8, E8, D8 provided?
These are not fitted for me.
I hope someone can help.
Greetings from Germany
