Re: LF: IBM 701C(S) Dock and battery

I checked my stock and I thought I had more batteries. I have one complete with the cap and the extra I thought I had has the plastic mounts for the cap broken so no go. I did find a screen back in good shape. Plastic not broken and not sticky. You would have to transplant over your screen latches b...

Re: LF: IBM 701C(S) Dock and battery

Let me see what I have and pick out the best I still have and can part with. Will let you know Saturday when I have time to go through my stuff. I am sure I will have these items, however.

Re: LF: IBM 701C(S) Dock and battery

eBay....years of buying parts units....in many cases what I have now is stuff I replaced with better some time ago but always kept the old ones.

Re: LF: IBM 701C(S) Dock and battery

The batteries I have are intact but the leads are covered with that green stuff. I will look for a plastic cap which I am pretty sure I have a few of and can spare one.

Re: LF: IBM 701C(S) Dock and battery

I don't have any bezels. They are very thin plastic and most have deteriorated to where they are as fragile as paper. There are also at least three distinct bezels out there and you have to get the right one for your screen housing. The 701C and the Cs have the screw that holds the panel into the sc...

Re: LF: IBM 701C(S) Dock and battery

I looked at my stock and only have 2 docks so I cannot afford to part with either. I have no available full screen assemblies but I do have some working panels. I do have some batteries and motherboards.

Re: LF: IBM 701C(S) Dock and battery

If I have the third dock. I will look tonite and if I do yes 125 would be fair as the battery would be rough and the board would need work.

Re: LF: IBM 701C(S) Dock and battery

That pretty much looks like my collection of stuff. I seriously have collected that much over the years but there is not enough in that collection to make a working unit. The additional necessary parts are impossible to find so having the collection does very little for you. I have a system I still ...

Re: LF: IBM 701C(S) Dock and battery

I have 2 or 3 docks but they are bringing crazy prices so not going to sell cheap. Odds are your problem is the CMOS battery on the motherboard or the motherboard itself.

If you wait for something pristine it might be a while. Half the fun is bringing them back to working condition.

eBay steered me to this which says it is working:

Re: WTB: ThinkPad 770E, ED, X, or Z

I am trying to kick my vintage Thinkpad habit but this one caught my eye and might be worth a roll of the dice at this price:

Re: 701c lock up when booting to 16000MB RAM starting

Likely but no certainty. There is a little green battery in a pigtail thing down by the modem. That is not what I am speaking of. Its the coin battery soldered into a little metal clip on the backside of the motherboard by the memory slots. Without a working battery there, motherboards exhibit all k...

How is your CMOS battery? Do you get a time and date error booting up?
