I just picked up a Kodak Diconix 150 Plus portable inkjet printer. No
power supply or documentation, but it works fine. It appears to be a
variant of HP's Thinkjet (it certainly uses the same cartridges) tweaked
for portable use. Looking inside, it's full of Chinon ICs, and was
apparently made in Japan (from the baseplate).
This one needed some parts on the DC interface board resoldering, but
after that it worked fine.
Which brings me onto my question... Does anyone have any information on
I'm mainly looking for a DIP switch table (annoyingly, it won't produce
a config print - just a test page). I'd also love to find some details
on the control codes, emulations and character sets it supports.
I checked and I have a Diconix 150 (not plus). I took photos of it should
that be of use to you. I took a picture of the switches as they are on my
unit, assuming this is the "normal operations" setting for a USA IBM
emulating printer, if that's what you're looking for. There are 9 posts, 6
is up the rest are down. Mine is a parallel printer (you can tell by the
port on the side not the dip switches)
Also IF and this is a conditional IF, the 150 plus is only "plus" in some
other way other than switches here is the non-plus 150 switches' meanings:
(I posted a copy to my site as well)
The last three switches pertain to the country. USA is all down. 6 up
means IBM emulation.
Thanks for the tip about the HP 51604A as a replacement cartridge. Not
sure if it will work on the 150 non-plus but it's a clue.
