|Recovering a HP97 printer|
Message #1 Posted by Jose Goncalves (Brazil) on 17 Aug 2003, 6:37 p.m.
I've been busy trying to revive the printer of my HP97. The main problem so far is a nylon gear some 10 mm in diameter, 30 teeth, that is turning into powder.
I'm sure it doesn't have to be nylon, may be nylon was chosen to porvide a smooth movement. Have you been trying other type of material for this gear ?
Where can I find a replacement for it ? I'm sure the printer in my HP92 will display the same problem when I start to work on it.

Hi Jose Ernesto,
Iīve read somewhere that the nylon gear can be destroyed if you try to operate the printer without a good battery pack in the topcat calculator. I am not 100% sure, but I guess I did this to my 97.
BTW, your 92 and 97 are Made in Brazil ?
Letīs talk later this week ? Iīve got some new machines.

Thany you and Katie for your help.
My calculators (HP92 and HP97) are Made in Brazil items, yes. In fact, because I live in Brazil, the access to Brazilian made products is probably much easier and several of the calculators in my colection were Made in Brazil.
Letīs arrange something by phone, Renato
