In the mean time I got this nice piece today. It’s a Takeru ROM. With the purchase receipt (dot matrix print out!). The game on the EPROM is Shogi by Ponyca. My guess is the EPROM was blank inside the vending machine and burned somehow on purchase after selecting the game. Really cool piece of MSX history imho!

The FS-4600F is indicated as FS-4600F in the wiki, the FS-4700F is indicated as FS-4700 (no F), the FS-5000F2 again is indicated without the F2, both the FS-5500F1/F2 are indicated with the F1/F2. I think the FS-4700 and FS-5000 pages should be updated to include the F for the FS-4700F and F2 for the FS-5000F2.

All is based on the mentions in front of the 4700 and 5000 machines, not on the mentions on the box or on the label. No "F" in front, contrary to the 4600F machine.

The differentiation is required for the 5500 machine, because there are two models with the same mention in front.

There was even an Event to celebrate the 30th anniversary in 2016.

I think the "CF7700B" chip (as for me I see CF770 plus two other characters unreadable) in the Sanyo MPC-2300 is probably a controller for the serial network interface. Sanyo MPC-2300 and MPC-2500FD are the only ones with this serial connector and perhaps with this chip. That is not on the motherboard of the Sanyo MPC-2500FD but it looks like there is another PCB which was not photographed. Anyway I don't think it's a chipset.

sdsnatcher73, do not hesitate to add the images that you discover in the Wiki!

Regarding Canon T-22A (and T-22 probably). I recently got one of these printers and it came with a thermal paper roll installed. The roll was laying loose in the compartment which actually has two holders for the paper roll and the left one can be pushed a little to fit the roll tightly. Now the roll that came with the printer was 210mm wide (the width of A4 paper and commonly used in European fax machines), but this roll is not wide enough to be stable (it falls through between the two holders). I suspect (quite certain actually) that 216mm rolls (which are US letter size) will fit much better. I will try to get 1 in the coming period.

Does anybody know where the 207mm maximum width mentioned in the wiki originates from?

Info for msxholder: gdx has removed '- specific 60-pin version' for the Yamaha SX-100/Victor HC-30 cartridge slot (in the connection part for these machines) although this was based on your info " This cartridge slot is a 60 pins version with extra names A,B etc. to F for slotselect and sound.!!" that I had added as remark on the MSX Cartrige slot page....
