TI Related -- Ebay / Heads Up Notice

Recommended Posts

Also note: the disk controller in that box is definitely third-party, so if you are looking for a DSDD controller, it is a really good buy right now.

Oops—The CorComp card is an RS232 card, so cannot tell whose is the disk controller—Sorry about that--->Not only that but it is clearly marked “CorComp Incorporated” on the part of the PCB extending out of the PEB.

I validated that the disk controller was a DSDD card by looking at the case tabs. That card was designed to fit into the PEB without a clamshell, so it is either a later CorComp (most likely) or BwG controller (very low chance, but still remotely possible). And yes, the RS-232 is a CorComp. Thanks, Lee!

I think these is something wrong most like with the CorComp RS-232, notice the activity LED is lit and its not connected to the console. I plugged my CorComp RS-232 into my PEB and the LED does not come on

Beauty must run especially deep on this specimen....

 

I’ve practiced cutting plastic with a Dremel on beige units better looking than this one.

 

Reminder: www.shopgoodwill.com appears to be the best source for cheap TI-99/4As. They don’t usually have the knowledge to test things well so “untested” mean untested, not like eBay where “untested” means broken.
