Is there any market for them?

The original works fine; the second model did have lighting lights when I dug it out, but no longer. Battery makes no difference.

That means that I will get rid of them as a pair. Anyone interested here, or should I do eBay?

Dunno. Try posting it in Classifieds.

IIRC they sell on eBay for $25-50 or so, Tim.  Which one works---white or black?  :D

IIRC the last one on eBay was white and sold higher than I expected it to. There was a link in the interesting items somewhere.

White one, the original, works just fine.

Thanks for the info johnhuck.

The pair I have are definitely available for the best offer...

The white one shows it's age in that the clear plastic label is ag-curling a bit.

I am surprised to see that one go for that much. I have seen them beofre go for far lessd than $75.  As a matter of fact I have seen them go for less than $20 IIRC.

No worries. I'm going to auction them a GenCon.

I didn't mean to imply that I thought it was a realistic price.  If you look at the bidding history then I would say it could have gone for £25 on another day.

I've seen one other UK listing in the last year which went for about £15.

At GenCon, with a provenance, I would think they might command a premium.  Pure speculation though.

In case you want to try to repair it here is the patent for it with component description and schematic:

For some reason, when I go to the above site, I cannot get the images to load. Does anyone else have this problem? If not, can someone be a pal, and email the images to me?

Please :)

The images load fine with the QuickTime viewer/plugin/whatever in IE 6.029, but won't load at all in Firefox 2.0 (even with my QuickTime plugin updated).

Loading the Opera-tested plugin at http://www.alternatiff.com/ worked fine for Firefox 2.0 after I closed and restarted the browser.

That's what I needed. It seems that upgrading my IE also needed the active x control for TIFF files.

Thanks Grodog
