Question for Luiz Vieira and other Spice fans



#7

Luiz,

You posted this sometime ago about 32E's and now the link to your great photo is gone:

http://www.hpmuseum.org/cgi-sys/cgiwrap/hpmuseum/archv013.cgi?read=38022

I'm sorry I didn't save a copy. I was looking for the same information for a 34C - that is, does anybody know which jumpers on the power supply board control the radix selection - I currently have a European unit I would like to convert to a US decimal point standard.

Thanks in advance.

Hello, Randy;

nice reading your posts. I miss this sort of subject...

You're right about the image. I actualy placed it back there, so I think you'll be able to see it again simply oppening the page again or updating it. Anyway, I place it here, too.

Everytime I am mentioned about this I think I must credit the very person from who I was told about this: Katie Wasserman. She posted about this sometime ago, I just replicate her information.

The fact is that the site I used to keep my images had all its files purged (erased, cleaned, wipped out) for at least three times, so I gave up keeping them there. It seemed to me some sort of "cracker" was having fun destroying a defenseless "e-place". What sort of fun does it take destroying sand castels by kicking them?

Sorry "ranting" this way... Randy, I hope this helps you already.

Best regards.

Luiz (Brazil)

Howdy guys,
that post from Luiz was a clever figure-it-out and very fine detective work.

Knowing that you can't trust Bill Gates any further than you can throw him, I printed that out on PAPER and stuck it in my file cabinet under "HP-34C" .

Not surprised that the files went south, knowing how things go in computer-land. Glad Luiz was able to square you away, Randy.

There are two electrolytic capacitors on the circuit board. Electrolytic caps are often seen to last a very long time, yet the electrolytics do dry out.... the best ought to be to replace them with dipped tantalum. The value aren't popular.... probably a special order from a distributor.

Just to send my regards to Captain Zener. And for you as well, Norm, of course...

"Analog" cheers (never sampled at its origns), Norm Hill.

Yes, but it took a minute as the jumper was in place and it still had a comma radix.

Turned out to be an open trace on the flex connection, so I jumpered it on the logic board side and all is happy.

Many thanks my friend!
