The one problem that might be the case that I though of is... what if
the problem is that the EPROMs are losing their bits after 20 years...
not impossible. What if there are no listings or backups?

Still... one could recode it from scratch for a lot less than 3 millon
Euros. I'd be happy to do it for a cool million, too.
