Well, that's better than what I have for a response so far (nothing.)
I guess now that the underside of my platen has some dust on it, and I've
noticed that WinXP is not supported (just 2000; the 1394 device stays
unrecognized, generally, (a 6700)) it's time to have a good look for the
obvious JTAG port or such here.

On the other hand, an Australian named Wilfried may actually understand
English or one of the easily e-mailed romance languages.... :)
