IBM P70 PS/2 Type 8573-061

Hello all:

Thanks for your suggestions on my machine! The floppy issue seems to be 
something related to the speed (rpm) of the diskette in the drive as it's 
being read. With the cover off and the drive spinning (in vain) trying to 
read the disk, a light touch will most always get it spinning at the "right" 
rpm and it will read properly.

The platter on the bottom seems to have a magnet at a position on the 
platter which flies past a transistorized sensor (black in color ,toward 
bottom front) which I assume measures rotational velocity? Whatever the 
case, this "sensor" has an adjustment, which I plan on playing with. The 
unit, while new, IS 17 years old and I assume things could easily 
deteriorate over this time period.

I am more concerned with getting my HP LaserJet 4 (with a HP JetDirect card 
installed) to be able to talk via TCP/IP to WFW 3.11, which I currently have 
on this machine. I fear this topic is for another newsgroup, though!

Scott

IBM PS2 P70 Type 8573-061 and RS6000 SCSI
Hello: Remember the conversation some of us had about my P70 and the SCSI controller on eBay? Well, everthing arrived and (before putting the SCSI controller in) the machine ran WFW 3.11 with great power. What an awesome system design! Nevertheless, I cannot get the machine to update itself once the SCSI card is installed! I've tried the ADF file at http://www.gilanet.com/ohlandl/IBM_SCSI/SCSI-FW.html#FW but the system displays an error message while reading the ADF file off the Ref. diskette I'm using. It says something about an error while reading the adf file for the adapter card in port two. The light on the card itself http://www.gilanet.com/ohlandl/IBM_SCSI/SCSI-FW.html#LED_Flash_Code stays lit during this whole process. Memory, for now, is a no-go. I purchased four old SIMM's from the parts bin at a local PC shop. None worked (as did not the ones I had in my possesion). Some are even IBM-branded, but all are above 2MB (I think) and that doesn't help. Thanks for all suggestions/help! Hi "Woody"... Sorry, couldn't resist...

IBM PS/2 (Type 8535, 8540)/IBM ValuePoint
Applicable to: World-Wide Symptom: The 8535, 8540 or 6384 diskette drive fails to read, write or format. The failures may be intermittent or solid. The diskette drive diagnostics run without error. Problem Isolation Aids: This tip applies to IBM Non-Micro channel systems with EMM386 and a Busmaster adapter installed. This tip does not apply to ValuePoint 6382/S or 6384/D with flash EEPROM level 51A (L6ET51AUS) or higher. Either of the following methods may be utilised to determine if there is a compatibility problem with EMM386* memory manager and the Busmaster option adapter: 1. Removed EMM386 or 2. Remove the Busmaster option adapter. If in doubt as to which adapter is a Busmaster. Remove all option adapters. If the diskette drive failures continue after removing EMM386 or removing the option adapters, this tip does not apply. Note: Other memory manager software which operates similar to EMM386 may also require the Zero_DMA.SYS driver. Fix: If the diskette drive functions correctly after removing any Busmaster adapters or removing EMM386, the customer should install device driver ZERO_DMA.SYS. The device driver should be copied to the root directory, and the following statement should be added as the first line in the CONFIG.SYS file: DEVICE=ZERO_DMA.SYS ftp://ftp.pc.ibm.com/pub/pccbbs/valuepnt/zero_dma.zip http://ps-2.kev009.com:8081/pcpartnerinfo/ctstips/876e.htm ...

IBM PS/2 Model P70 (luggable)
Hello folks, Am looking for a replacement floppy drive unit for my luggable. Currently has OS/2 installed on a 60MB ESDI drive. I want to wipe the drive and install an alternate OS but need a good working floppy. Does anyone out there have a replacement to offer? We live in MN. Also, if someone can help with where-to-find a SCSI adapter so that we can upgrade to internal SCSI drive, that information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! Martin Adams on ebay has 8555 floppies which are an exact fit. You can use 2.88MB floppy drives, but be careful which model. The floppy cable isn't all that long and the floppy connector on the drive should be on the side towards the case. I recommend a Future Domain MCS-700 or the IBM SCSI-2 controller (FD MCS-700 OEM'd for IBM) http://www.gilanet.com/ohlandl/SCSI/MCS.html#MCS-600_700 Mason Storm wrote: > Hello folks, > > Am looking for a replacement floppy drive unit for my luggable.

IBM PS/2 P70 purchased brand new!
Hello: I just bought an IBM PS/2 P70 "sewing machine" case PC on eBay in it's original box, UNUSED! (eBay item# 5226052089) For this, I bought: IBM MCA 92F0160 SCSI-2 Card (from an RS6000 server) (ebay item# 5179496534) and a card edge cable, eBay item# 5199812189. Hopefully these will work? I have an early-to-mid nineties IBM 1-gig SCSI drive that I'll be using to upgrade the system along with the card and cable. For comunications, I got a 3Com Etherlink III MCA 16/32bit NIC Card 3C529-TP (eBay item# 5796220874). I'm confident this will work. As for memory, my bank account is rather low after buying the mint P70. I did, however coem across some old SIMMS in a static bag from either a 386 or 586 system my family owned. (I'm obviously hoping for the former case). Is there a way to tell how much is on these chips? I know my PS/2 will take 72-pin SIMMS at no more than 2MB's each for a total of 8MB's RAM. Is there a way to tell how much memory is on the SIMMS I have. They have 72 pins, with for large chips, two medium and one center, small Texas Instruments chip. They seem to be Samsung modules, number: SEC KMM5362209AU-6. There are four of them, which meks me think that these were either 4X2MB's for 8MB's in or 386 system or 4x4MB's for 16MB's in our 586 system. Any guesses? Does it matter? Will it hurt to try them? Thanks, and, by the way, nice newsgroup! Scott ...

IBM PS/2 P70 MEMORY and SCSI HDD upgrades!
Hello all, I found some memory for the PS/2 P70! Look here: http://affordablesurplus.com/search_results.asp?txtsearchParamTxt=IBM+92F0104+&I1.x=0&I1.y=0&iLevel=1&txtsearchParamType=ALL&txtsearchParamCat=ALL&txtsearchParamMan=ALL&txtsearchParamVen=ALL&txtFromSearch=fromSearch I also purchased an ACTUAL PS/2 SCSI adapter: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=6741870578 I'm kind of rusty on the whole SCSI termination thing- anyone think this card has a chance of being the "automatically terminating" type? I've read one or two ways of upgrading to a SCSI harddrive (from OEM ESDI). I'm a little timid about approaching the power connector hookup. Could somone point me to a specific pinout of ESDI power to IDE power? I'd hate to fry my SCSI drive or, worse yet, my PS/2! Thanks, Scott Scott Hi Scott...
