Could it be that by plugging in the serial cable on the printer while everything was on somehow blew a chip inside the printer?
Did you try turning the printer on with the serial cable removed?Dan...
If you have one, Robert, that'd be awesome.
I'm in Stockton right now and can dig through the storage house on Sunday.
That's a big no-no to attach and remove serial cables when the computer is on. I agree; the electronics of the printer may have been damaged.
I'd have to agree with Robert, removing (or plugging in) the serial cable of a running Commodore is a very bad thing to do
I wonder what Sears would say if I tried to place a repair order for the printer?
They have a website for that now. Try it and see what happens. :laugh:
Robert, I'm sorry if you searched through your storage for one of these printers for nothing, but it looks like I won't be needing it after all. Still, maybe it wouldn't be a bad idea to have a second one for parts, eh?
However, I did find a Comrex 220 (which is the Commodore MPS-801) for another user who wants one at the next FCUG meeting. As you can see, not all was a loss.
The same thing always happens to me when I'm looking for something in storage. I usually won't find the thing I'm looking for, but I'll find other things that I had been looking for but wasn't able to find in the past.

This storage house sounds like a real treasury I imagine a cave with shelfs and shelfs of old Commodore stuff covered in thick layers of dust. Like a place taken from an Indiana Jones movie
Maybe we could sometime see some pictures from this treasury?
You oughtta see my garage.......
