Re: Odd problem with IBM Model F

Apologies for the late reply - I've not had chance to look at this until a week ago. It appears that my PCB was actually faulty. I managed to source another PCB on eBay and replaced the board and it now works. I have done away with my shoddy wiring and as you suggested, wired directly to the Teensy ...

Re: IBM Model F XT 83 restoration

Great restoration. I'm currently coming to the end of my F XT 83 restoration, and I'm glad it's not just me who has gone through the sticky rotten foam, ridiculous amount of clamps, newly scratched paint and the scattering of flippers over a wide area when the plates slip. In fact I seperated mine w...

Re: Odd problem with IBM Model F

Cheers for the replies guys - it's much appreciated.

I'll take it apart (again) this weekend and take a couple more photos. Great idea about the internal USB conversion. I'd not thought about doing it that way.

Agreed that my soldering isn't the best which doesn't help matters! :lol:

Re: Odd problem with IBM Model F

Here are a couple more photos. The white stuff on the pcb was some remnants of the old foam which I have now removed.

The other photo is of the Teensy running Soarer's converter and connected to the original cable using a 5-pin din socket.

Re: Odd problem with IBM Model F

Correction - soldered to the Teensy is a 5-pin socket! The original 5-pin din plug is then plugged into the socket.

Re: Odd problem with IBM Model F

Thanks for the reply guys! I have the original cable with the 5-pin din. Soldered to the Teensy is a 5-pin din plug, and I have simply plugged them together. I was a bit precious about cutting the cable to solder the wires from the block connector to the Teensy! I will take some closer photos this e...

Odd problem with IBM Model F

Hello, I hope someone may be able to point me in the right direction with a strange issue I'm experiencing while refurbishing my IBM Model F. I have stripped it down completely, cleaned everything, fitted new foam and re-assembled. I am using a Teensy board running Soarer's Converter and it all work...
