Thread: MAC 128K sad MAC code question

  1. #1

    Default MAC 128K sad MAC code question

    I am getting a "sad MAC" 041800 error upon boot up

    I understand that you break theses codes into class codes and subcodes. The first two characters in the code is the class code. 04 represents a "mod 3 test" memory errror (something I presume is wrong with RAM), but I cannot identify the meaning of the subcode "1800" - is this meaningless?

    I have found sources on the web, but none pertain to this specific code. Or I am having trouble interpreting what I have found.

    Please help! I am trying to identify the bad chip.

    Default answer - I need two Apple 4264 RAM chips.

    04 = class code = memory test mod 3
    1800 = chip identification codes, in binary combination
    1000 is bit 12, chip G9
    0800 is bit 11, chip G8

    ..anyone have these for sale?

    I was running a bunch of memory chips through my chip tester the other day and I came across a number of 4264s but didn't test them because I was looking for 4464s (which tested good).

    They aren't Apple, so, I don't know how important that is.

    Just to be sure though, what are the specs you need and what is the chip layout? They are 41256 equivalents, aren't they?

    I don't know, but I'd have to assume that they are the same thing. Probably you can use the 4464's too, but of the major manufacturers I am least experienced with Apples (but working to do something about it

    Interested in selling me a couple of tested 4264's? The old ones would need to be desoldered from the board / new ones re-soldered so I'd only want to do the job once. On the other hand I could install two sockets.

    Ok, what's this going into?

    Give me the exact chip numbers and I'll do a little research and test up a couple of chips if they are the same ones.

    Sell? No, but, if it turns out they will do the job, I'll give them to you.

    Ya know what I would REALLY like to come across? Either a unit or a schematic for something that tests 16K x 1 DIP RAM. My tester doesn't go back that far.
