Computer Repair Tools, Tips, and Manuals

An informational resource for technicians and users to repair computers, with specific info about Apple Macintosh computers and other products.

These are PDFs of Apple's "Service Source" documents, which were historically distributed only to Apple-authorized repair shops. They offer step-by-step Mac repair information for do-it-yourself technicians who want to repair old Apple Macintosh computers. These documents also include Apple technical specifications, memory configuration information, and more. With a few common tools, these repair manuals are what you need to become your own Macintosh Repair Technician.

Note: Visit this site's general howtos section for additional information, including How to Reset the Configuration of a Used Apple LaserWriter 16/600 Printer as well as an old Mac networking FAQ and information about PHP/MySQL on Mac OS X.

Macintosh 128k overview page

iBook G4 and PowerBook 12" DVI added. The iBook G4 file previously listed here was actually an Apple Developer Note; it's been renamed, and this new file is actually the repair manual. (thanks to babyap2002 at yahoo dot co dot uk -- AGAIN!)

NEW iPod User Manual added January 6, 2005.

NEW MANUALS ADDED August 19, 2004.

"linked files" now available November 10, 2004.

2 NEW MANUALS iBook G4, and a link to iMac G5 -- November 17, 2004.

MAC MINI MANUAL ADDED January 23, 2005. Thanks to Dan Szwarc!

Power Computing info added February 1, 2005.
These are Classic applications, one called "PCC DriveGuide 1.0" and the other "PCC Logic Boards".
They are Stuffed and binhexed together here.

NOTE: If any of these links are broken, PLEASE email me and tell me which ones.
I created most of this page with Perl and grep, so there may be a few errors that I've overlooked.
If you download something and it won't open, try adding .pdf and see if it works then.
Email: webmaster AT whoopis.com.

HOW TO USE THIS PAGE: Sometimes the filename starts with, say, "Power Macintosh" -- other times, "PMac" -- other times, "PowerMac" -- etc. You get the idea. If you don't see what you're looking for, try a "find" (command or ctrl-f, usually) and search the text of the page for your machine's model number, or part of the name.
