Got an another Apple II+… but a-c-c-e-l-e-r-a-t-e-d. I got this for spare parts but it’s quite ok condition for it self. Nothing fancy otherwise, just basic II Plus, luckily with the “good” keyboard.
Board : 820-0001-07 and serial : 8014. Feels like this board have been swapped later on? Most of the IC’s on board are from 1982.
8-2-1982 case date.
In previous life this Plus was in some public place… no wonder it didn’t get stolen heh-heh.
Power supply by ASTEC AA11040 that luckily had the 115/230v switch.
Added some stickers so i know it’s been switched. Just for safety.
Added some legs that happened to suit it quite well, just the color being wrong. I have correct, black coming that i’ll swap when they arrive.
The keyboard. All other keys worked expect the spacebar. I took it off the unit and.. nasty 80’s Cola-Cola or Sugary-Coffee was spilled all over it… that took some time to get it off there. Nasty nasty stuff.
Looked like some traces were bad but after good cleaning and measuring i was amazed they all worked, expect the Spacebar. Measured the switch and it was dead. Thought already to swap the switch that i happened to have one extra of (thanks to Eduardo!). Cleaning with lots of IPA and lots of pressing the switch made it work however.
…and finally it did work again.
Got also a accelerator card with a UM6502C (4MHz) prosessor installed. Seems to be clone of Saturn Systems Accelerator II-card. This works in Apple II and II+ only. The next revision by Titan Technologies (formerly Saturn Systems) Accelerator IIe worked with as the name indicates, with the IIe as well.
