I can trade an amiga 500 to an philips nms8250, but in the nms8250, the startup password is enabled. The seller says its easy to remove the password........ can anyone confirm that?

And the plug on the keyboard cable is damaged, is it easy to replace. I have to drive about 100 km to get it, so I want to have things sure, when I make the deal.

Thanks!

Press [GRAPH]+[STOP] and you will not see any password Wink

then in BASIC type

SET PASSWORD = ""

Allright, thanks!

And the plug, can it easily be fixed?

yup, and most of the time it works quite well with minor damages. Otherwise you can always grab one of these keyboards (or two) from any random MSX Fair Smile
