    I just recently picked up a Blueberry iBook which completes the set for me. Love them! Keylime I thought was one of the hardest to find but it was my first one. Blueberry I thought would be the most common and was the last I found. Keylime, Indigo, Graphite (and white), Tangerine, Blueberry and Graphite (with silver).

    The hard drive has failed in the Indigo and the backlight has failed on the Tangerine, the others work and no missing CD drive covers (small miracle).

    ooo iBooks! I have a blueberry one but its not that great cosmetically unfortunately!

    Edit: Confirmed, it's IDE so any cheap $5 IDE to SD adaptor that fits will work.

    Yeah sorry, two separate statements - SCSI adapter and just shameless showing off re the iBooks. I'm actually looking the for SCSI to IDE adapter for much more vintage Macs of mine. Would love to get an SCSI to SD adapter into one of my Apple SCSI externals for use on the Plus and SE's.

    And yes for sure, the iBooks are definitely IDE but thanks all the same for the IDE to SD adapter link, could be worth getting one to try out as my PM5500 now has a dead HD, they're IDE too. To be honest though I'm not hugely concerned about the dead HD in one of the iBooks, they're just on display anyway. Four of them work perfectly anyway! What a flashback it was using OS9 briefly again the other day.

    Now I've got the set, I have a few spares - a Blueberry with a broken hinge and a missing leaf, a Tangerine with a cracked LCD and a Keylime with a missing CD drive cover but otherwise excellent. The amount I've spent on iBooks I will probably have to send them to ebay to recoup some $.

    Would you be interested in the Blueberry though, what does yours need?

    I added the two free 8GB micro sd cards too.

    Hmm yes those CD drive coveres are problematic. I'll have to check exactly what I am missing! I'm getting forgetful :O

    1st one installed in my LCIII, came with Mac OS 7.5 installed but tomorrow I'll install 7.6.1.

    I used the old upside down metal stand off trick screwed in from they underside of the HD chassis and two more stand offs on top acting as nuts.

    Just a word of warning, even if the caps look good, they're almost definitely leaking and its only a matter of time before they start causing damage.

    Chaps, I got a new battery for my LCIII and have reset the pram but it still won't keep time when off or store the memory settings etc.

    Any ideas?

    Have you checked that the connections to the logic board are ok? Is the battery faulty? Its possible that its not holding charge for some strange reason - a doa battery for example.

    It's one of those 1/2 AA batteries and goes in the cradle on the main board. I made sure it's installed correctly and this is the second new one I've tried.

    That would eliminate the DOA part then hmm.. Maybe the connection to the cradle is faulty?

    Have you tried resetting the PRAM?

    I've got a third battery to try which I just tested and correctly reads 3.6v so I might try that tomorrow morning.

    The first one I tried was either doa or the main board drained it before I had a chance to test it properly.

    Yep, I reset the pram straight after installing the battery. The cradle connection did seem to be good and snug.

    Argh I made a closer inspection of the board and found the pram battery cap is leading badly and it had clearly drained the battery flat.

    Time to recap the board, bugger I hate smd stuff!

    Oh goodness I have so many boards to do, yet so little skill and so little money to get someone else to do it :P
