Hello all,

Taking some time off to play.

Restored, that is dis-assembled my working FX-1 to repair some bouncy keys. Of course this means a full PCA cleaning as well as shell.

All functions work perfectly but the card reader status is unknown. I have some new cards arriving from England soon. In the mean time I have been writing some programs for the calculator. I do have an fx-201p which I have restored earlier this year so messing with the coding (semi FORTRAN) is fun.

In any case, three things:

1) does the card reader record data registers along with program coded? It would be helpful, especially with programs requiring many constants. That would save loading constants beforehand into the requisite registers.

2) does anyone have a calculator manual for the fx-1 in PDF format that they are willing to share. I have the fx-201p manual but it does not discuss the card reader do’s and dont’s.

3) Does anyone have the program manual in PDF format that they are willing to share?

Cheers, Geoff

Will probably do a YouTube video on the fx-1 as well as my HP 29LP IR.

Here are the card reader instructions. Make sure you follow the instructions in the Special Note!

Thanks Tom!
I guess the AC and MAC on the special note before recording answers the: “ is data in the registers also recorded” question!

Cards arrived today and the calc reads and records and without the gummy wheel problem!

Here is the calc working and some of Andrews Menadues’ cards which I labelled with transparent label stock. Sticky on ones side and translucent. Very thin, thinner then paper label material.

For cards with programs and labels made up so far:

Right! No wheels so no gummy wheels! Make sure you don't have gummy hands, though. Smile

Those cards are so cool!

Your cards look wonderful. What kind of transparent labels did you use?
Standby, i am away from home but will post the Avery product number when i get back Thursday.

Cheers

Email me and i can send you the photoshop file correctly sized. Will be reproducing the back side next.
