Hello guys! im restoring a 3178 Model F keyboard. there's a little socket on the back frame, I assume that it holds the 3178 display station operator reference and problem solving guide.

I want to print a new one and add it as a "Finishing Touch" but i cant manage to find any scan online. Does anyone got this manual? anyone has a scan of it?

Thanks! :mrgreen:

I can't see the image too. Can you please post the manual if you find it? I was searching for one for my own 3178 and there was no use.

I have a couple of those manuals, but they aren’t in very good shape. They have something like oil on the pages, but I think it’s all still readable. Maybe not the best candidate for a restoration?

I've got one, but haven't scanned it. Would be quite a job as it's like 80-100 pages.

Dayum, I wasn't able to find that on my research. What was your process of finding that?

There's a lot of info in this guide. Also, this page:

https://archive.org/details/bitsavers_i ... /page/n325

It says there's such thing as a Katakana version, along with the standard and APL. Has anyone found a 3278 with Katakana sublegends so far?

Hi, no worries. I have seen others link this site before so I just remembered that is all. Our information is collaborative and I learn from the forum just as much as you! It is a good resource of various old manuals to check. For ibm as well as others

General IBM

And there are several 3278 documents
