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".
