These are the items that I don't know how to price, or that will be
recycled soon if I can't find a home for them. They might work as they
are, or with minor repairs - I have tried my tricks to make them work
and they are either beyond my ability or my interest. Make me an offer!
(I'm very hard to insult so don't be shy ...)

And on this page:
This was an incredibly advanced modem at the time, often used with
the AS/400 mini-computer. It is capable of asych and sync
communications, has loads of customizations, and can connect to strange
network types that I have never used via the LL (Leased Line) and PSN
Switched Network) ports on the back. POTS (Plain Old Telephone Service)
is also supported, of course.
This unit powers up but it is not working correctly. You should be
able to press the front panel buttons to get its attention, but it is
not responding. I used it in the mid 1990s with a 386-40 PC to connect
to my employer's
network as part of a home terminal program, and when that program was
terminated I was able to buy the modem. And it really irritates me that
it "almost" works now because I would have liked to have played with it
again. This might be just a matter of old/bad capacitors.
Included with the modem are the original IBM tagged phone/network cables and two wrap plugs that are probably used for diagnostics.
This is a classic Hayes Smartmodem 1200 from the early 1980s. It does not power up. I examined the only component that looks to be a fuse and it is intact; there is no other visible problem on the circuit boards so I have no idea what is going on. If you can diagnose it and fix it then you can have it! Or if you just want to use it as a prop in your office it will do that too ... This might be just a matter of old/bad capacitors.
This is sold without the power supply - I have my original personal Hayes 1200 and I used that power supply to test this one. (And yes, the power supply is good ...)
Extra pictures are attached so you can see what you are up against.
