Comment on Repairing a defective Olivetti M21 by Jannie van Zyl http://www.nightfallcrew.com/23/02/2014/repairing-a-defective-olivetti-m21/comment-page-1/#comment-147864 Jannie van Zyl Mon, 06 Feb 2017 15:35:17 +0000 http://www.nightfallcrew.com/?p=10449#comment-147864 Hi, Do you, by any chance, have a service manual for the M-21? I want to repair one but am looking for a service manual specifically around opening and disassembling the M-21 case. Got a very clean model so don't want to damage it when taking it apart. I do have all the electronic diagrams but can't find a service manual for the hardware itself. Thanks in advance. Hi,

Comment on Fixing a Radio Shack TRS-80 Model 1 by Michael Weare http://www.nightfallcrew.com/12/10/2012/fixing-a-radio-shack-trs-80-model-1/comment-page-1/#comment-147862 Michael Weare Sun, 05 Feb 2017 11:09:16 +0000 http://www.nightfallcrew.com/?p=8337#comment-147862 Hello, recently acquired a TRS-80 model 1...works well apart from the space bar not working at all. Previous owner says it was working fine, but when I received it (well packed Aussie Post) space bar doesn't work. How would I determine that the keyswitch itself is faulty. I'll also need to put a meter on the ribbon cable to ensure that there are no issues there...they certainly look a bit frail. All other keys work fine. Appreciate your help.

I have two HX-20 but both do not run with power supply (6V) attached. Is it possible to run the HX-20 only with power supply or is a fully functional battery required? I think the battery is defective. Best regards Mathias Hi,

In former times i used 64Copy alot to convert and copy between different file-types. In my opinion it`s the best tool for C64 file-formats. Will try 4.46 out. Great news, especially for SD2IEC-users.

I was wondering however why you did not choose to grab +5V and ground from the pin of the removed chip on the mainboard but instead took it from somewhere else? Is it 12V that goes into the 7805? @Jordi
