My one can generate all the letters, numbers and punctuation marks so fingers crossed the EPROM is OK.

OK, I'll try and read the EPROM. This might take me some time, but I am keen to
do it as there is very little technical stuff about the MW4 on line.
I might try and disassemble the code too (but I don't think IDA has a 1802 option!)
