Hi Tom,


Quote from: Overtom on December 30, 2005, 08:59AM   

It will be my pleasure! But I already removed it. If you don't have it yet, I can reinstate it for a day or so.

Thanks, but I already downloaded it...

I hope you realize it's in Spanish ...

I missed the beginning of the thread  then it will wait a bit to appear on my site because I would have to modify my code to handle a new language...

Thanks,
Best regards and happy new year,
Alain

Hi Tom,

if you want, I have a lot of space available

Do you allow me to put this manual on my site ?

Best,

Alain

Hi Tom,

On behalf of Dilmar, thank you so very much! I downloaded the zip file so you can free up the space now.
That was fast!!! You're a lifesaver!

Mike, I agree with you. I think we somehow have this call of duty to help others keep the machines going

Best regards,

Ismenio

Ismenio,

I scanned the (Spanish) manual and uploaded the file to:

    http://www.xs4all.nl/~anana/KasTC2100.zip

Could you please notify me when it's been picked up. It occupies 20MB, almost half of the space I have available there.

Thanks in advance and with best regards,

tom

The Travel Champion 2100 manual is in six languages including Spanish. If Tom does not have it I will be able to help.

As to the hardware problem like most others I would try changing the batteries and using the reset switch under the machine, even with various combinations of keys to try to hard reset it. If this does not work could it be a loose or corroded battery terminal? or loose wire between the batteries and circuit board? Beyond this I would be at a loss.

Keeping these old machines going is becoming a hobby in itself.

Folks, I'm trying to help another chess friend. He needs the manual for the Saitek Travel Champion 2100, preferably in Spanish or Portuguese but if you have it in English I think he will take it.

He's also having problems with it. Recently the computer is locking up. When he resets it and starts a new game, it locks up again. From what he's been able to check with help from some tech folks, it seems the keys are OK.

Any ideas?

Regards,

Ismenio




The picture seems to show the Saitek Mephisto Expert. As to the Travel Champion 2100, however, I must have the manual in Spanish somewhere. In one or two days I hope I'll be able to get it through a scanner and send you the resulting file. I'm afraid I can't help you with the hardware problem. It would be the first hardware problem I ever managed to solve.

With best regards,

tom
