I am new here, so first let me introduce myself quickly: I'm Thomas, 34yo, living in the south of France. I have recently acquired an Apple IIe, after giving away my father's one to a museum 15 years ago... something that I deeply regret today!
1. Identifying it properly
I'd like to have some help in trying to identify it more precisely. I wasn't aware of all the "e" variants: IIe, IIe + enhanced kit, //e, etc. Mine is a PAL model sold in France. The references printed on the motherboard shows that it is supposed to have a "standard" un-enhanced 6502 CPU. However its boot message says "Apple //e" so its seems like it is a 65C02 CPU. The keyboard LED says "65C02" (as it was on Apple //e sold with such CPUs, if I understand correctly), not "enhanced" (like the sticker sold in the upgrade kit).
I have gathered the relevant part numbers:
Model Number: AS2064F
Serial number: 2A2S2 322547
Motherboard: 820-0073-B (© 1982)
PSU: Serial A2M0030 n˚ 517018
PCB data: / installed chip:
CPU: 6502A / NCR 65C02A (609-0380113)
CD ROM : 341-0135 / 342-0304-A
EF ROM : 341-0134 / 342-0303-A
Keyboard ROM : 341-015X / 341-0326A
Video ROM : 341-016X / 342-0274-A
AIIE 80COL/64K card : 820-0067-B & 607-0103-(F)
It came with a 80col/64K memory expansion, a Super Serial card, a mouse interface, and a UniDisk drive.
The body features a switch under the keyboard to toggle the character set from US-ASCII to the local (french) one. Could it be that the casing has been replaced by an enhanced model?
2. Quirks to fix
The 'V' key doesnt' work: it doesn't produce anything. I believe the soldering might have gone bad, I will try to re-solder it.
If I type too quicky, sometimes incorrect characters are added (I can reproduce it): typing POUR writes POU*R. Weird!
If I power cycle the machine, the screen shows garbage. I have to unplug it and wait at least 10 seconds, and it starts working fine again. Maybe it was normal? I've read about capacitors issues and Rifa components that should be replaced. I'll have a look inside the PSU.
