Those drives are great, both IEEE-488 and serial IEC in one unit. Some have a copy ROM in it to do unattended copying, though kinda rare to find one so equipped. > Tractor Printer 4032. > > All for the grand total of $25.00! terrific price! > Unfortunately I neither have the IEEE-488 cables needed to hook all the > peripherals to the computer, I think I can part with a PET->IEEE and one IEEE->IEEE cable reasonably, contact me if interested. > and nothing comes up on the screen.

If it sounds like a 'jingle' type sound, that's a good thing, that's the bell sound. blind type ? chr$(7) (assuming the keyboard is clean) you should get one 'jingle'. Sorry not an electronics tech... :( Though I recall the PET monitors were being cleared out by liquidators as TTL compatible; that might help. Also if you are near a decent TV repair shop, it wouldn't hurt to ask if they work on monitors, if they have anyone with TV experience I think they could handle the PET display (assuming it is a monitor problem and not a logic problem.) > Oh yeah, curious enough, it doesn't appear to have a standard set of > ROM's in it.

Oracle is Delphi's Oracle later renamed as 'the Consultant' a very decent flat-file commodore database. Paperclip is a word processor also by Batteries included. Both of those ROMs are the copy protection for their respective programs. > If one of you PET people could help, I'd be happy. > > Yeah!

That's normal, all the PET monitors I've seen have glowing tubes in them. -- 01000011 01001111 01001101 01001101 01000100 01001111 01010010 01000101 Larry Anderson - Sysop of Silicon Realms BBS (209) 754-1363 - 2400 baud Commodore 8-bit page at: http://www.jps.net/foxnhare/commodore.html 01000011 01001111 01001101 01010000 01010101 01010100 01000101 01010011 - This message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list.
