Hi all, noob here!
I have been hunting high and low for a case badge for an original shape Apple ][.
I've heard NOS labels sometimes pop up, but I've not seen any for sale.
Does anyone know if repros exist?
I had just purchased a set of Integer ROMs from dorkbert when another set dropped on my lap for cheap (way less than half the going ebay rate). Anyway, I don't have a working keyboard now so can't go very far, but I did install the ROMs and power up. I have a couple of questions.
A friend just gave me an old //e that had been sitting in her garage for a couple of decades. It has the older white keyboard and an "A" revision motherboard. (And it has a populated Ramworks II card in it, so...score!)
It seems to work fine with a standard //e enhancement kit. Aside from the purported lack of double hires graphics, are there any drawbacks to the Rev. A motherboard?
Good Morning All,
A little bit ago (about 30 minutes), I decided to pull down some boxes to see just what I had placed in them.
To my surprise I found my 3.5 inch Super-drive (with the Controller Card) and an AE RGB Card.
Now these boxes have been up on the shelf for at least a year and I have not touched them.
Guess I had it coming.
I realized I had the materials to make my own keyboard ribbon cable to replace the broken one that came with this A2S1 keyboard. No problem - followed the wiring schematics I had.. etc. But, alas, didn't work. So I switched back to the cable from my II+ and to my horror, none of the keys were working except Ctrl-Reset.
After finding which key was sticking on my Apple II e sprayed it with electrical contact spray to loosen it up. No luck. Not sure now if it is not so much stuck as broken. When I hit the key it makes a spring sound and the stem vibrates on release as seems very wobbly. What can be done to get my computer operational again?

I'm guessing this one must have had its board replaced. Very, very low serial number. Silver power supply like a regular II, but the board, I think I can make out the silkscreening on the left somewhat. So must be 820-0044-xx or something? Probably should be a Rev 03 or 04? Wonder what it'll hit.
Just a general interest question. Recently I learned that even within revisions of Apple II motherboard, there were sometimes mini revisions.. like the black slots on my Rev 04. I'm wondering if there are also notable changes with the other revisions that are of ajy significance? Thinking I might keep this Rev 04 board and start trying to collect all the variations I can.
