On the Mailstation circuit board there appears to be a wire jumper about 1/4" long. It is near the speaker on the board closest to the keyboard and is encircled with gold. Has anyone removed or cut this jumper to see what effect it has on the unit?
Also, has anyone with one of the white units compared the circuit boards to the Cidco unit?
Are you referring to the large metal probe that comes in contact with the aluminum plate underneath the keyboard? Those metal plates and all of the little points that come in contact with it look like a grounding system to me... I doubt there would be any short-term effects by cutting that prong.
After you have opened the Mailstation and removed the four screws that hold the CPU board in and removed the two screws for the speaker your can lift the board and flip-it over so the the printer port is on the right side and facing towards you. Immediately ahead of the printer port is a cut-out in the circuit board, then a capacitor (C110) and then a crystal (X102). Directly above the crystal is what appears to be a wire jumper or a very fine solder trace. On my board it seems to be outlined in gold.
It may be just a jumper for the crystal or something unimportant, it just seems strange that it appears to be highlighted so that someone in the Orient would know where to make a modification.
