Full Version: Manual of HP92198A
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.

I recently purchased in Ebay an HP92198A HP-IL to 80column video interface made by Mountain company. I would like to know if someone can send by email the scanned manual of the HP92192A. I have both the hpmuseum dvd and the TOS dvd, but the manual is not available.
Also, what SF? or CF? command must be input to the HP41 in order to get every key you type appears in the monitor? I donĀ“t remember the SF sequence.


Strange I thought I had sent it to the MoHPC. Anyway this is the manual for the MC00710A.pdf which is the machine the Mountain company produced before OEMing it to HP.

Anyway, here it is, I am also uploading to the MoHPC ftp site.




SF 15 for Trace mode.

Thanks for your help!
After 30 min. powered on, the plastic case of the Mountain interface gets very hot (due to the power regulator metal dissipator), but the screen remains stable, an almost imperceptible flicker shows up from start (when the interface is cold) and after 30 min. (plastic case hot). It is normal this behaviour? It seems to me that the flicker is due to the monitor (Hantarex 9 inch. monitor) and not the interface.
