I have an old but useful "mutoh" pen plotter that has blown it's power supply,
complicated six different outputs switch mode thing. Any friendly Mutoh/OKI
service engineers or manuals out there ?
Don't know about Mutoh, but pen plotters are getting pretty thin on the ground.
We have an A0 size Oce and an HP 7475 (A3/A4) and are buying pens up all over
the place as Pentel are stopping production of their ceramic CXP pens, and OCE
stopped supplying pen plotter stuff some years ago. HP stuff isn't too bad, but
as Pentel made a lot of pens for other manufacturers, the situation is not good.
There are a couple of newsgroups for CAD, and ebay does have a fairly busy
number of auctions for the older stuff.

Yes I know, my pens have been recycled loads of times, but no way can i afford
an A 0 inkjet plotter !. This is all my own fault for not keeping the thing in
a properly dry environment. Condensation has rotted some capacitors & even
though I've replaced the obvious failures it won't work. Actually my last
message on this NG was about a rusty chuck due to condensation, must get some
more insulation & poss a dehumidifier !
