Hi,

I have a very nice Olivetti Logos 75s, but the blue VFD is broken...I am trying to find a suitable spare part without success. The problem is that it has 14 digits (all "eight segments" per digit, without "M""+-"), which is not common at all, and it is not implemented in other olivetti models...as far as I know.

As possible solution I have found in ebay 16 digit VFD offered from Russia, but I don't know if it would work. The idea is to connect 14 digits, but I don't know if this is feasible. I don't know how this is connected: by digits, by segments? Would it be compatible?

Maybe you can give me a clue about it. It is absolutely new for me.

Thanks for your help!

Kind regards

Ignacio
