Full Version: An HP-97 sacrificed to the altar of the knowledge.

I hope this won't be a sacrilege for most of you, but it's my opinion that this could be a reliable method for bad-component finder, for HP-97 (all IC), HP-67 (ACT, some ROM and CRC controller), Woodstock component (ACT) and HP-41 (82104A Card reader).
Do you agree with me?

Very nice done. Great step to understanding how to repair our loved 97.

I have done that with an HP41CV board with faulty RAM IC's. I used to test ROM, RAM chips and other components with it. I decided to keep the main IC in place, but I am willing to place a socket there, too.

Nicely done, indeed.

Ignazio, that was not a sacrifice, it was an heroical "geste"!
