Just joined TI User Forum and have also been a member of the HPCC for a few years. I have 2 TI-59s (one is locked on the P100-A printer) - both card readers won't read or write to mag tape cards However both card readers do a lot of whirring but don't get pulled through. The other 59 locked to the printer (lost key) - 2 different locksmiths have tried to open it but failed (I can hear a number of modules when you shake it).
Is there anyone in the club that could repair the readers please and/or unlock the PC-100A (I'm in Sheffield UK)? Also the other 59'has a missing battery cover lost and both steel battery prongs have been broken right down to the mother. Both 59s will run on external power. The reason I can no longer do fiddly jobs is because of Rheumatoid Arthritis) Thanks Dennis Tuckerman
