Thread: Kaypro II User's Guide

  1. #1

    Default Kaypro II User's Guide

    The original Kaypro User's Guide is a manual I couldn't find on the web. So once it came into my hands I scanned it.

    The download link can be found in this blog post.

    Not on my site, but I did find a high quality scan of one when I was diagnosing my non-working Kaypro keyboard. It's at:
    http://www.retroarchive.org/docs/kaypro_technical.pdf

    Incidently, Philip Avery's been using the circuit diagrams in this manual to fix his newly obtained Kaypro II. He tells me he's found an error in the schematic. He's away at the moment, so it will have to wait until he comes back to find out exactly what that was. When I know I'll post it here.

    Thank you Tez !!!

    More good news - those on cctalk@classiccomp.org probably have seen the posts on Miicro Cornucopia magazine availability in the past few days.

    Just got a response that someone has obtained the complete collection and will put it on a DVD for the public.

    Stay tuned !

    Tez,

    That may be the schematic error Micro Cornucopia people found that Kaypro made and they corrected, not Kaypro.

    That is another reason why Micro Cornucopia is so valuable to all of us.

    Yea, sorry, A few of my fileden links seem broken I think due to a change at their end. Anyway I do know how to fix it. Give me an hour or two and I'll replace the URL.
