    ...there are also schematics of the thing around on the M24 site.

    Wow, when did that manual get uploaded?
    Yeah, that's all the trimmings in there. The schematics start on page 241.
    I'm going to skim over this but if anyone sees anything I'm open to suggestions right now.

    Yes, but to be fair, not a lot of people realize the 6300 is an OEM'd M24, and furthermore, a lot of Olivetti information online is in Italiian. I've owned a 6300 for decades and I only found this manual a few years ago.

    - Documentation and original distribution disks for: Panasonic Sr. Partner, Corona PPC-400, Zenith Z-160 series
    - Music Construction Set, IBM Music Feature edition (has red sticker on front stating IBM Music Feature)
    - Any very old/ugly IBM joystick (such as the Franklin JS-123)

    Alright, as an effort to eliminate a few suspect components I am going to desolder and socket the nine IC's that were also in the path of the leak and do the same on the loaned M24 so I can swap chips back and fourth until I see something fail. New sockets are on order but given the time of year and my short-sighted decision not to use digi-key we might be ready to test again in a month or two, depending on sea conditions in the Pacific Ocean.
