Help needed

To all my readers :
Every day i’m happy to see how many of you are visiting this website. Thanks !
I hope you discover here some new informations about your favorite pocket computer. I’m french and then culturally chauvinistic (lol)… but in facts i’m not and the goal of my website it to remind the world story of the Sharp PC-1500/1600. After one year i’m still discovering each week new informations, news little stories… and hope this will not stop but this takes me hours and hours… But i’m sure you know some stories too, isn’t it ?


You can support my website by many ways and be actors in its story.
May i suggest you some ideas about what i need ?

  • Articles written by my readers (with pictures, software, schematics…)
  • Contacts from all over the world (Sharp employees from 80’s, companies, authors, club members, users…)
  • Informations about Sharp or pocket computer user’s clubs and their publications.
  • Advertisements in all kind of languages
  • Magazines with articles about the PC-1500/PC-1600
  • Books
  • Professional or amateur software
  • Pictures of your extensions (Professional or amateur)
  • Informations about industrial use (hardware/software) of our favorite computer
  • User manuals that i may not already have
  • Generous donors (materials, books…) like “Xavier Fojud”, “Lukas Zeller”, “Oscar Rysdyk”, “Ledudu” or you !

    in1985 (“beeing in the best years”) I bought a PC-1500 in Tokoyo – using nearly all my money at a buiness trip. Now, thirdy years after that, it works further in run-mode, but refused in pro-mode: Error 13 : CE-155 defect.
    Who knows,where to get a new one (or an old) – the grandchildren want to learn!
    With many thanks

    Good afternoon!

    Do you have any of the CE-158’s left?

    I’d be interested in any other accessories you might have for the pc-1500 or pc-1600.

    If you do could you provide price with shipping to USA ZIP code 50266?

    Thank you.
