    Tut tut - though don't think I haven't considered that as well.

    Be aware that some suppliers are members of the Distributor Take Back Scheme. They make a financial contribution to the DTS which will be used to assist in the development of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) collection facilities throughout the UK.

    If they're a member they can quite legally refuse to collect stuff for recycling.

    If you have any other 500 series - remove the controller (its in the pen tray on the right) as it might not be broken.

    If you haven't - please remove it and post it to me (postage and beer money will be refunded ) so I can try it out in one of my iffy ones

    regards

    Simon

    Hey guys

    I know this sounds wastefull but at the end of the day, it is the schools responsibility to dispose of all electrical equipment under the WEEE Regulations. I'd just call in a WEEE Disposal contractor or telephone the council and see if they will dispose of it for the school and the school will have to swollow the bill. I know it is all well and good to try and save tax payers money but at the end of the day it costs more in your time chasing these suppliers etc then asking the caretaker to call a skip.

    This is somthing I have learned working as a technician, once the item is no longer of use, it might be wastefull to throw it away but your time is also money. I have sent working computers to Africa in the past too so I take no joy in working this way.
