I've scrapped several LA100s and may even still 
have a complete one somewhere, but I should at 
least still have a PCB with the ROMs. When I find 
it I'll dump them and email them to you.

Note that there were two versions of the LA100: 
the LetterWriter (with full keyboard) and the 
LetterPrinter (with only a small control panel); 
mine are/were the RO LetterPrinters.

I should also still have the complete maintenance 
docs. I checked Bitsavers a few years ago to see 
if they were worth scanning and I could have sworn 
they already had them, including the print set, so 
I forgot about them; don't see it now so the 
senility must be getting worse.

I'll have a look but if/when I find them I don't 
think I can scan the print set; IIRC the pages 
were longer than 14".
