HP PRINTER 82143A
Message #1 Posted by JEANETTE on 11 Apr 2007, 4:41 p.m.

HELLO THERE - I HAVE A BOXED HP PRINTER 82143A WITH POWERPACK, HANDBOOK, PROGRAM CARDS AND HOLDER ALONG WITH A HP41C/41CV QUICK REFERENCE GUIDE. BEFORE I PUT THEM IN CLASSIFIED FOR SALE, I WONDER IF ANYONE COULD ADVISE ME ON AVAILABILITY OF THIS ITEM AND HOW MUCH I SHOULD ASK FOR. MANY THANKS IN ADVANCE.

most people would look at the unmentionable auction website for a few weeks to get a price.

or if you are registered with ebay, do an advanced search selecting "complete listings" and you get an idea of the sale prices in the last, I believe, 1 month or so.

Good luck, Thor

I think the completed only goes back a couple of weeks. I just did a completed on TI-83 calculators as there are millions of those on ebay. The oldest one I could find had a Start Date of March 18 and an end date of March 28. I don't know how ebay chooses exactly if it is based on start or on end; I think end date.

My goodness you don't need to shout!

I have an 82143A printer with box, power pack, and manual. It conked out on me after a few months and my tinkering made it worse so I got it serviced. I paid $50US for the printer and $30US to have it serviced. This doesn't count the shipping back and forth. So I am into this printer for $80US plus shipping costs. But it works beautifully now and I am delighted with it. That said, the more bargain savvy around here will probably suggest I have spent too much. I am not very good at DIY stuff, so I need to pay a bit more for stuff that is fully functional, and when I mess it up and I have to pay to have it fixed.

On eBay an 82143A in a box and accessories should go for $50-60US tops, and if you want to sell it in our classifieds you may need to go $10-20 less than that. If it is in good shape and works that helps. If the battery still holds a charge that is sweet indeed, since replacement packs go from $27 from waterhosko to $36 at FixThatCalc.com (I have one of each). Can't use this thing without a working battery pack, even off of AC.

The HP41 QRG may be worth a few bucks to a true collector, but a perfectly good facsimile of the card can be had for free at The Other Site. I would have to know more about the program cards and holder before hazarding a guess as to potential value.

HTH. And please disengange the caps lock!!!!

Hi, Les;

once we had another 'shouter' here. His (maybe hers?) explanation was that he/she was using kinda 'dummy terminal' with no lower-case letters. Well... at least we had an explanation.

Just my O.T. 2.

I just noticed by your email that you are from Britain! Make sure you price out overseas shipping if you sell to an American customer!
