Hey. I finally found some time to pick up a 2001-32B w/ 8050 and 8023 printer yesterday, which I had been kindly donated (Thanks, Ruud!). All seems to be working (except for the keyboard of the 2001, which probably needs to be cleaned badly. However, I don't have any experience in cleaning B-keyboards; they're totally different than the keyboards I know..). The 8050 however is giving me headaches. It worked as a charm when I turned it on after some cleaning and a visual check. However, halfway during a backup from drive 0 to drive 1, a thick white smoke came out from the small shielded area behind the power supply. I've opened it up, but there's no visual damage whatsoever, and the unit still works like a charm. So, my question is (What's that for an introduction :): Does the 3-pronged AC socket used in the (European) 8050 (and probably in all other PET-alike devices...) have a line filter? In that case, I know what happened.. The thing makes a 'nice' "twang" when turned on. I've got a a 3032 with similiar sounds at startup, and I'm beginning to see why. -- Martijn van Buul - Pino@dohd.org - http://www.stack.nl/~martijnb/ Geek code: G-- - Visit OuterSpace: mud.stack.nl 3333 Kees J.
