Vintage Apple Lisa 2
Serial No: B08B831590278Applenet No: 00102679Manufactured : 83159
This early Apple Lisa is in good working condition. The floppy drive has been lubricated. It reads, and ejects disks properly. The keyboard is an early example, which includes the pullout cards. It has had all of the original foam contacts replaced. After so many years, the original ones have literally turned to dust. I purchased some new premade keyboard foam pads, and attached an original plastic disk, and contact, to each one. I also cleaned the PCB with rubbing alcohol, to remove any dirt. A few of the rubber feet on the bottom of the keyboard are a bit sticky.
The original I/O board was corroded from battery leakage, which is pretty common. I replaced it with an I/O board from an Apple Lisa 2/10, or Macintosh XL. I then modified the Lisa Lite card, so it would work with the new I/O board. The new I/O board has no battery corrosion. The motherboard does not appear to have any battery corrosion also. I have tested the mouse, and parallel port. I have not tested the serial ports. But since the motherboard does not have any corrosion on the tracings, I'm sure they are fine.There was some corrosion inside the card compartment, and on some of the other metal parts, which I neutralized, and cleaned.
The computer does show some yellowing. The computer also has some cosmetic issues. A corner of the top plastic piece chipped. I glued is back. I included an photo of this area. There is a spot on the top of the computer, which has a rub mark. The plastic piece, which engages the rear power interrupt switch in the power supply was broken, when I receivedthe computer. I reattached it with strong plastic epoxy.
The computer does not have a hard drive. You operate the computer by loading the Macworks boot disk, and then the Macintosh 128k system disk. I tested the computer with the profile drive, and it loaded the Lisa operating system just fine. The reason I'm not including the profile drive is because it will show an error one time, and boot another. The drive is to inconsistent for normal operation. I would recommend using an X/Profile. The original Apple Lisa drives are getting pretty ancient.
I have attempted to describeeverything in detail. Please message me if you would like further detail in other areas. Also please keep in mind that after shipping things might need to be adjusted. For example, the pots that control the monitor might move slightly. In addition, the pots in the back of the power supply might also move.I would like to avoid having to pay return shipping for a minor issue. So, please don't purchase this computer if you don't feel comfortable making minor Lisa 2 with 1MB MemoryApple II MouseEarly Apple Lisa Keyboard with PulloutsApple Lisa 2 Owners ManualApple Lisa 2 Modem ManualMacworks Boot DiskMacintosh 128k System Disk
