Any HP25c schematics?
Hello everyone,
I've bought a "cheap" but heavily bluewhitegreen corroded HP25c and washed and cleaned it. It was so damaged that in the wash process I almost lost a component; this the "big" black transistor on the left of the first (mid) RAM chip (thank you, Harald!): Now, I have to test it (and every component I guess) and to solder it (or a new one) on the board again. But where does it connect onto the board? I didn't find any picture or schematic neither in this site, nor on the PPC DVD of Jack Schwartz. Any help will be appreciated.

Woodstock HP21 HP25 Schematics.pdf (Size: 1.21 MB / Downloads: 141) I've attached an ancient PDF that I had lurking around  hope that might help? I've also got a NASA HP25 program listing for calculating Loran time differences if you want to run and see if it works ok after your major trauma surgery on the calculator. Dennis Denny Tuckerman

If you want to see the last photo in whole go to the website that is shown in the pdf. So you can see the whole hardware displayed.

These formulas are used: \( \begin{align*} \beta_T&=\tan^{1}[C\tan(\Phi_T) ] \\ \beta_R&=\tan^{1}[C\tan(\Phi_R) ] \\ X &= \cos^{1}[\sin(\beta_R)\sin(\beta_T)+\cos(\beta_R)\cos(\beta_T)\cos(\lambda_R\lambda_T)] \end{align*} \) But we can factor out \(\cos(\beta_R)\cos(\beta_T)\) and get: \(X = \cos^{1}[\cos(\beta_R)\cos(\beta_T)(\tan(\beta_R)\tan(\beta_T)+\cos(\lambda_R\lambda_T))]\) Hence we can avoid calculating \(\sin(\beta_R)\) and \(\sin(\beta_T)\) since \(\tan(\beta_R)\) and \(\tan(\beta_T)\) have already been computed. This makes the program a bit shorter: Code: 01: 24 06 RCL 6 C Example 21282.339 π × 180 ÷ STO 5 0.99664767 STO 6 39.1930 →H STO 3 82.0615 →H STO 4 34.034604 →H STO 1 77.544676 →H STO 2 f CLEAR PRGM R/S 2317.7679 Cheers Thomas

While there is much relevant information, the original question seems to still be unanswered: Is there a schematic for the 25c available? Thanks.kby

Did you look at Tony's schematics? HP25C included ...
