CommVEx v15 2019 raffle and other prizes

Post by rbernardo » Mon May 06, 2019 7:52 pm

This year's CommVEx has its first raffle prizes - a Commodore PET 2001 and a Commodore 128!

The PET 2001 is non-working at present, but it's being handed over to a CBM engineer in mid-May in hopes that the engineer can get it fully working!

Stay tuned for the progress on that,

The PET 2001 was handed over to Michelle on Sunday at the Bay Area Maker Faire. Hoping for the best on that machine!

Stay tuned for the progress on that,

Yow, Michelle has spent about 8 hours on the machine so far and has it 80% working! Showing me a picture on her cellphone, she reports that it powers up now, shows a screen, and works well. She replaced a burned-out chip, fixed a trace, and made sure the other chips were making contact in their sockets. On her to-do list to get it 100% working... the semi-colon key is not popping up (it's depressed), and the built-in cassette drive has to have its belts replaced. She doesn't like the look of the black, glossy PET label, saying it's starting to wrinkle, but I told her that duplicating the look of that foil label would be hard.

Whether the machine is 100% or not, I will pick it up in mid-July so that it can be raffled off at CommVEx!

Truly,

Another CommVEx raffle prize! It's a VIC-20 system with the computer, computer box, VIC-1541 disk drive, 1530 Datasette, a cartridge (to be announced), power supply, and serial cable and disk drive power cable (may not have video cable or RF modulator).
