hi i used a vishay oled display and installed it last month.

you need to remove screws, then the pins at the header as well as two further connections for anode/cathode and then it lifts away.

i got myself another pin header to solder on to the new OLED board, then on to the EMU EIIIXP Panel board as i knew it would be a cleaner job that way.  I had to snip the pins to shorter lengths. 

I also removed the inverter from the main board.

Let me know if you need any assistance

Thanks, this one used to belong to Midge Ure from ultravox and I was hoping to get sounds off the HDD, or from the floppy library.
However it seems that there are no floppies, so replacing the FDD with an HxC and removing the HDD.

Can I leave the Adaptec card in there, without a HDD, and still boot from the HxC?
Could someone supply me with the boot image file needed for the HxC SDCard please?

I agree.  About the only reason you need the original drive is if you have a custom library on floppy.

Buying a new Floppy Drive makes no sense.
Just put a HxC in it to boot and use a EMuSer to load sounds.

Hello !
Did anybody already replace old display of EMU III XP (rack) by a brand new OLED display ?
Basically I ordered one on eBay (Newhaven brand) that "should" fit perfectly on my beloved sampler. Any instructions (soldering, pins etc..) about the right way to do it would be welcome !!

So I'm repairing this EII+ HD for someone, this has quite a lineage and is well worth the effort.
I've found the reason the PSU got fried, and replaced the faulty part on the Output Board. New PSU is on it's way to me and it boots from my Bench supply. So I'm making progress.

It's been in storage for 20+ years and not touched, sadly, it has rusted a bit.
in particular the FDD and HDD have suffered from Rust.
(I couldn't work out how to upload pictures)

the FDD is a Panasonic JU-465-5
the HDD is a miniscribe 8425

My thoughts;
Get a new FDD
Remove HDD
Install one of the HxC adapters as a second floppy drive.

Where can I buy a new FDD? The one I found on ebay as 174!
Are there alternative FDDs that work? if so does anyone have model numbers?
Are there any HDD emulators that would work?
A few people have installed the HxC adapters, looks pretty straight forward but are there any 'gotchas' to be wary of?

Finally, if I'm removing the HDD, will it boot from a FDD? or will it always try and boot from HDD?

I just sent you an updated file of "OMI_UoS_V1_C06___ACOUSTIC_STRINGS" - it can be downloaded from Zippyshare.

Thanks for uploading it to your Mediafire-account (where links are living a longer life) - and thanks for sharing it with the forum.

(PS! Rapidshare folded business in February 2015. No wonder the link is dead.  Wink )

Hey, it seems this link is dead?  Any chance you can re-establish a link for the forum?  If I can get this I will host it permanently on my premium Mediafire account.
