    I havn't seen the inside of mine. However, with a flip of one of the
    dip swicthes on the back you can turn it from a CBM printer using the
    CBM IEC or into a IBM PC Printer (centronics). The printer contains
    the PETSCII and PC ASCII character sets which is set by the same
    mentioned switch.
    I'll have to dig the manual out but you can't use it on both modes at
    once or something bad will happen (if I recall what the manual said
    Other then that it's a fairly good printer and easily still can get
    ribbons for.
