The second machine is not shrink wrapped, but then they weren’t, even when
sold. It is taped closed, with TI original tape. If anyone’s interested,
let me know. No idea on functionality.
The first one powers on, and generates a grey screen, via RF modulator.
Via my homemade composite audio/video cable, I get no video, but a single
tone on audio. I’m going to fix that one, but I was hoping that someone
here had repair experience.
