OT: Is a nonfunctioning TI-66 of interest? - Peter Murphy (Livermore) - 05-03-2012

I just got a TI-66 Programmable in a batch of "for repair or parts" calculators.

The battery compartment door is missing; the compartment interior is clean and shiny. I see signs of life with batteries inserted (a zero and a "DEG" indicator appear), but keying a digit turns the calculator off.

Is this calculator of interest to anyone?

For your information, an NIB TI-66 was sold for under US$70 on eBay.

I didn't know that. But I see two recent "completed" listings, you know where, for working TI-66s: one for 38USD, another (with stuff) for 55USD.

My question remains: is anyone here interested in a TI-66 that doesn't work?

I suppose I'd be interested in it to someday decap and photomicrograph the chip, but I'm not willing to pay more than the cost of postage.


Re: OT: Is a nonfunctioning TI-66 of interest? - Peter Murphy (Livermore) - 05-04-2012

It's yours for the postage on a small flat rate box, presuming you're USA; that's $5 and a bit more. I'll need your address.

I'd pay for the manuals, if you have them.

In addition, if Eric only needs the electronics, I'd be interested in a new case for my beaten up sample, but it doesn't justify the postage alone.

Thomas, I have two manuals. I could spare one of them.


Re: OT: Is a nonfunctioning TI-66 of interest? - Peter Murphy (Livermore) - 05-04-2012

I've got no manuals. I'm sending the whole calculator to Eric.
