after 22 years I finally have an apple ][e again thanks to ebay. The motherboard was made in 1984, PAL version (the aux slot is below the C3 slot, not over next to the PSU as in NTSC boards) and as far as I can tell its a revision B board so it should be capable of 'Double Hi res' mode.
Now not having had one of these for so long and this one not coming with any user manuals or software I have a couple of questions.
Firstly what does the swich on the bottom of the front bevel do? I think it connects to a header on the motherboard labeled J19....
and secondly the return key is a bit dodgy, how do i go about fixing it or getting a replacement?
Thirdly, there is an 80col/64k memory expansion/ video card in the C3 and Aux slots, if i plug my monitor into the rca connector connected to this card I get no video, currently I get video from the standard vidoe out from the motherboard.
It there any benefit from taking the video from the expansion card and if so how do i get it to out put video?
Thanks in advance
