I do, albeit not fully

I do, albeit not fully working. It's on my long to-do list.

Have you checked the KB ROM in it? Seems no dump of that exists, and that'll be a major issue if anyone else finds one.

 

It's one absolutely sexy system.

Thats my machine, I need to

Thats my machine, I need to get back to that and try and get it working. Its also on my todo list. I'd like to swap out the power supply with a compact modern replacment, and then go from there.

 

I did end up getting a copy of the keyboard rom, but it still did not seem to work. There was a discussion on comp.apple2.sys, and then i was able to get the rom from here:

power supply issue

I have one of these machines also and it too had power supply issues, mainly with the monitor not working  and then the drives. the only thing that worked in the end was the fan. I also hooked up a replacement power supply and everything was working fine, then shelved it for a few years.

 Looking at it again this week ,  replaced the two 100uf caps in the power supply and it works great.  AUD15 fix. I love it.

Beats trying to fit a replacement power supply.
