Yes... It is alive again.. Problem were the rubber contactdomes underneath the built in joystick and some very nasty soldering of the keyboard flatcable. Someone even replaced the keyboard processor using lots of soldering flux.
I made the keyboard connection with two SIL sockets now so it can be detached which proved to be very handy during the fault finding. Using a rubber keypad from a dissected USB gamepad I could repair the joystick and it works!
The circuit board(s) were cleaned with PCB cleaner and all the missing screws are replaced.
Another unique piece of history saved..

Yes I found it already, lots of useful information!
BTW my Comx35 came with a serial communications adapter, similar to Thermal Printer adapter on that website.

I didn't have the printer adapter, so you couldn't use the therminal printer. One comx had a broken joystick, but the other was complete. Sold them to somebody that used to have a comx35 back then, and wanted one again.

For information: the comx35 website mentioned earlier has been rebuild so all the programs can be downloaded again.
