potatohead Posted May 8, 2011 Share Posted May 8, 2011 Recently decided to purchase a IIe Platinum off of e-bay. Almost never use e-bay for a whole lot of reasons, but it made sense to get one of these machines. Paid $40. Not unhappy with that, nor the shipping effort, which was actually quite good. Somebody cared about it getting there. The cost for shipping was more than I would have liked, but they did work for it. No worries on that. Seller claimed it was guaranteed to not be DOA, and it was. Did all the usual things before powering up. Looked for loose screws, seated things, and it powers up, with some video noise, and on power off, with all cards removed, power stabilizes long enough to get the boot beep. I believe I need a new power supply, and or potentially to fix the one that's on the machine. Question here is, what to do with the seller? I've sent them a note detailing the DOA condition, what I did, and asked for options. What say you all? (And does somebody have a power supply, or source that's cheap?) Got a disk with it. Where does one get a small supply of floppies? I don't need many. Would like a test DOS disk, and a place to store a few development efforts, and one for a player disk for Ultima V Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
