    Default Newly-acquired Model 100, needs a few parts

    Hello,

    I'm 100% new to the Model 100 (I'm a Coco user by heart though)

    I've just acquired a Model 100 (I don't even know how much memory is in it). I don't even know if it is in working condition, once I get a power source running.
    It is missing the battery cover, and power adapter (if they even use one. It's still the back of my car, I haven't taken it home yet).
    It came with a floppy drive but no interface cable nor power adapter.


    1. Where can I get a replacement battery cover ? Has anyone 3-D printed these yet?
    2. There is a little corrosion on the spring terminals, what's the best way to clean this?
    3. Where can I get the interface cable and power supply to the floppy drive?

    Is there a concise guide to bring one of these to a working state?

    This M100 came with a lot of SW in the original Tandy packaging, I suspect any media is no longer viable though.
    I believe there is a service manual in the boxes too. (I have a lot to look through when I finally get home)




    Thanks

    Check out the Club100 site. Lots of info and perhaps help for the pieces you're missing.

    - I believe the battery cover has been printed
    - The AC adapter is 6V DC but with a negative center pin.
    - Cleaning battery terminals depends on battery type; try vinegar with a toothbrush, else try baking soda.
    - The disk drive cable is more than just a cable.

    I recommend joining the mail list at http://bitchin100.com/ and asking your questions there.

    Be careful with the software; you may have some rare stuff. Also, open the door on the bottom and see if there's anything in there.
