You will need a new ribbon. You can try the ribbon I brought with me,
it's not installed but will show you what kind you need. I also
left the manuals and everything for hooking up to a Commodore
computer. Sunday if you don't have time to work on it, please put
everything in a box so that all the parts stay together. I left
everything sitting on the table, there is an adapter you need to attach
the printer to the user port don't lose that.
We didn't try the printer.
I assume that this means that
Bill Degnan brought a Star NX-1000 printer for use with the Commodore 64
and Print Shop ? We can easily order ribbons for this on the
internet very cheaply.
