Since HP terminals are being mentioned quite a bit lately, here's an
easy repair/maintenance hint for some of the older HP terminals. Not
sure which models are affected, but my 2382A (I think that's the right
number, haven't used it for a while) used to stop working every so
often. From what I recall, the display would become distorted---
displaying much smaller text, etc., and then, eventually, nothing.
Every time this would happen, I would open up the case, take it
outside, blow the dust out of it, bring it back in and reassemble the
case. This fixed the problem every time... that terminal had a great
fondness for collecting dust, thanks to it's fan... apparently it
liked to collect dust as much as we like to collect computers. :-)
