OK, I got curious and found the manuals. The short answer: you're screwed.

Major parts of the display logic (character generator etc.) are in the
monitor case, not the main box.

Apparently, you need only attach a "turn-on fixture", part 09845-66547,
to the left monitor leg, execute "PRINT ALL IS 0", and press the 'PRT
ALL' key: then you can use the machine with the printer alone... yeah,
good luck finding one.
