Anyone by chance have the schematic, or Users Manual for this machine? Specifically with the main board assembly of # 8500-0005.

I should have it somewhere. . .

I need to dig it up for someone else anyway. . . but it may take a bit. :)

Thanks Erik! Let me know when you dig it up. I can then get this beast going.

Take care!

Ah...you must be the bloke that got the one on eBay....that guy started at $899 a few months back!!!

The manual with schematics is online at:

Hi, thanks for the reply! Unfortunately the manaul online at bit savers is for a different level PCB assembly. Also for some reason all the illustrations, except the schematics, are missing. Hopefully Erik has one that will work otherwise I'll keep searchin !

Take care!

Bug me via PM if Erik does not have it, I think I have a paper copy.

Anyone find a copy of this yet? I can't seem to find it anywhere.

I checked hi and lo...could not find it, but I know I had it recently. I must have left it with a friend when we were working to fix my 5-5ad. It will turn up eventually.

What are you trying to do?

I found my docs while digging for junk for this weekend's Maker Faire (http://www.makerfaire.com).

I should be able to pull them out during my post-lunacy clean-up.

Sorry for the delay.

Thanks Erik! Let me know when you have it handy.

Did you ever find the 8500 schematics? I could use them too, I just got an Altos 8000-15A off eBay and I don't get any console output when I power it up. Traced the port back to the 1488 and the pin just stays high.
