Hey hello
I need to buy complete printer assy for nidek Tonoref I (drawer, printer, cables, etc).
I can not buy it in Nidek, at least in my country. Maybe someone has some hints where to find it.

Or someone is interested in buying Nidek Tonoref I w/o printer as mentioned above.

Do you still have the old printer? Any idea who is (was) the OEM?

Will the Tonoref I accept a stand-alone printer? I notice that Nidek (Marco) RT-5100 printers sometimes pop up on eBay. They appear to have a Centronics (or Centronics-like) connector at the end of a long-ish cable.

I'm also wondering if a printer from one of the later Tonorefs (or similar) could be made to fit?

no, I have scrapped device with all assembly missing. Later Tonorefs have printers beneath screen, my model has printer in a stand. Like this one below

So, if I've read that right, the Tonoref will (does) accept a remote printer. Is there a suitable connector on the back of the unit?

Yes maybe it will be good idea. It has RS232 outputs, now I am looking for printer for trials.
