It seems there are two different printer circuit boards used on HP-97 printers. I think there are two different boards because HP changed the HP-97 CPU board later in production. Does anybody know a way to make an older printer board work with a newer CPU board? I hope this question makes sense to someone. Thanks.

You should just be able to swap them between machines. I just tried it and could swap printers from an old machine and a new machine (the one with the pads for the 97S I/O pod) without any problem.

Thanks David. You are right. I thought the printer circuit board was at fault but it turned out to be the PIK chip on the main CPU board.
