Help! Facit 4042 PT Reader/Punch

   This one was completely dead so I've torn into it. I has two RS-232 interfaces. They're on the 2nd board from the bottom. Found a bad power switch and bad power lamp in this one. I don't know it everything is working properly but it at least makes noises now when I press various buttons. (An operator's manual would be handy about now!) It would interesting to have one with HP-IB interface! I'm thinking about putting this on the HP 1000 that I just got so HP-IB interface would be perfect. I've never even heard of a reader/punch with a HP-IB interface.

   I didn't find much on the net except re-sellers that want outragous prices for their's but I did find this <>.
