One of the best parts about having retro gear pass through your hands is the ability to perform preventative maintenance on hardware. What’s the easiest preventative maintenance that can be carried out? Lovely little through-hole capacitors. Here’s the list for the Netcomm Mega-i-Modem, aka CD2004. There’s a few models of this fellow. The one I came across was a very late 2008 (!) model.
The last number on the list is the Element 14 / Farnell order number used. Baby sushi denotes that the capacitor is quite small and not needing to be measured. I think they were 11mm (h) x 4mm (w) from memory.
On the underside of the modem it reads:
CD2004 Mega i 56K Modem
Power adapter used is a 9VAC 800mA
Netcomm Mega-i-Modem 11 capacitors 470uF 16V 12mm (h) x 7mm (w) 2760329 470uF 16V 12mm (h) x 7mm (w) 2760329 470uF 16V 12mm (h) x 7mm (w) 2760329 470uF 16V 12mm (h) x 7mm (w) 2760329 470uF 16V 12mm (h) x 7mm (w) 2760329 100uF 16V 12mm (h) x 5mm (w) 2760325 100uF 16V 12mm (h) x 5mm (w) 2760325 100uF 16V 12mm (h) x 5mm (w) 2760325 1uF 50V Baby sushi 2346264 10uF 25V Baby sushi 2217568 Upgraded to 50V 10uF 25V Baby sushi 2217568
On other fronts, it’s been a busy past few months with life continuing to tick on getting in the way of retro videos. I have parted with almost all of my retro collection now. I am now fully invested in the MiSTer project, powered by the Terasic DE10-Nano. Looking forward to the Saturn core work being done. It was unfortunate to lose the Playstation core being developed. That’s OK, we can always look forward to it being completed one day. Not today, maybe not any time soon – but one day. Thanks laxer3a for your work! 😊
