I've just bought a partially defective HP9816 (aka HP9000 model 216) on
E-bay. Let me emphasise from the start that the seller declared the
problems in the E-bay listing, so I am certainly not complaining.
Anyway. one problem is that the power-on diagnostics mention an 'Alpha
Video' failure, and then give a memory address/data failure message. I
think the address is in the text video RAM area (it would be on a 9826 or
9836), so I suspect one of the 2K SRAM chips on the text PCB (the larger
one standing up next to the CRT). I will do some more tests.
Another problem is that I am missing a keycap, I think it's the left hand
shift key. I have the small, compact keyboard.
So a couple of questions.
1) Does anyone have a 'junker' keyboard that I could buy a keycap from.
Or any ideas as to making one
2) Does anyone have the service manual (or is there a scanner version on
the web, Google found nothing, and I couldn't find it on the usual sites
). Yes,. I know it'll be a boardswapper guide, but I might was well
read it if it's available.
. What's up with http://www.hpmuseum.net? I get all sorts of 'SQL
errors' when I look at the doucmentation index, and most of the manuals
are no longer available :-(
