Re: Where can i get my VAX fixed?

I know, I thought the same as I saw the title in the New Posts. But, sadly I only thought about this "after the event".

Good to know I'm not the only one who thought about that kind of VAX :-)

I spend years on PDP-11, VAX then Alphas and I never had to change a bag during all that time.

Re: Where can i get my VAX fixed?

sorry for the delayed posting I gave up on this thread. I am taking the "carpet cleaner" back with me to the UK in November to get it fixed.....was warned about posting questions on here...should have listened..coz I am sic of the "told You So`s". if I wanted to feel this silly i would still be married, but thankfully I am not and I am also still of an age where I may associate the name with a computer but that's as far as it goes. Have a great week and enjoy the cooler weather.

Re: Where can i get my VAX fixed?

well, it depends on what is wrong with it.. Mine lost suction and the shop in UK told me the seal has gone BUT as it is SO Old that they no longer has the spare for it, so I just have to get a new one. This is a hoover repair shop.. I got annoyed with this, so I got some window draft excluder form and cut them down to size and replace the seal and it worked.. So it depends on what the problem is. Great if you take it back to UK but simple things might just need some thinking to get it sorted.

you can tell I am bored . PM if you like with the problem and I might be able to have a go at it for you.
