Apple Service Level I Technical Procedures #072-0062 Vol V (Feb 1986 ed)

This is the Apple Service Level I Technical Procedures #072-0062 Vol II (Jan 1986 edition) binder. It contains troubleshooting, take-apart, and preventive maintenance technical procedures; and illustrated parts lists for a number of Apple disk drives, including the Disk II Drive, Disk /// Drive, Apple ProFile, DuoDisk and UniDisk drives, Macintosh External Drive (400K and 800K), HardDisk 20, and UniDisk 3.5. There was also a section of the ImageWriter technical procedures inserted – probably by mistake, but I included it in this PDF anyway.

Apple Service Level I Technical Procedures #072-0062 Vol II (Jan 1986 ed)

This is the Apple Service Level I Technical Procedures #072-0062 Vol II (Jan 1986 updates edition) binder. It contains technical procedures, take-apart, troubleshooting, preventive maintenance and illustrated parts lists for the following Apple products: SilenType, Dot Matrix, Daisy Wheel and Scribe printers; Apple Color Plotter; Apple Graphics Table (RFI and Non-RFI versions); Apple Numeric Keypad (Apple II/II Plus; and Apple //e versions); and the ill-fated Macintosh Office (Apple LaserWriter and AppleTalk Networking products) – here’s its despised “Lemmings” Super Bowl ad.

*Note: Section 5 of the Scribe procedures is not present in this binder. This may be due to removal as instructed in a previous update or because the shop owner didn’t properly maintain the updates shipped from Apple. There are also a few doubled pages and “jumps” in numbering, also possibly due to update removals. I left blank pages in place where they were essential for maintaining page count order.

Apple on Apples Vol. 1 No. 1 (Undated Version)

This is the undated version of the premiere edition of Apple on Apples, a magazine briefly published by Apple Computer with a lot of white space and advertorial. There was also a version printed for some reason with the date on the cover and a few other minor differences that you can read about on Paul Hagstrom’s excellent Yesterbits blog here.
