Thread: TRS-80 Videotex

  1. #1

    Default TRS-80 Videotex

    I just got a TRS-80 Videotex in the mail! It will need some restoration work. It has a switch installed on the top and a RCA connection on the back. This connection has "MON." in marker pointing to it. Interesting mods. Any ideas what they are for? This is a planned restoration after I get some others done and off the bench.

    The Videotex came out before the coco. The "mon" must be a monitor output. I have not tested it yet.

    Yes, thank you.

    I am trying to find some information on the two modifications that were done.
