My TI99 smells
Hi. I bought an in box ti994a with all its manuals and cords and stuff at a yard sale. When I got in my car I realized it smelled really bad. Its got this moldy mildew smell to it. The box doesnt seem to have any discoloration from water damage and I dont see any mold or anything. I stuck it in a large box with aome dryer sheets for now but I was wondering if anyone has any experience with this and if there is any way to get the smell out or clean it.
Does it really smell like mildew and not just old electronics?

I would take everything out of the box and let it air out in a corner of the garage for a week and possibly stick it out in the sun for an afternoon to tame the odor.  I've got three or four consoles and don't recall ever having an odor issue, though.

If you find mildew on anything paper, best to consider tossing it and buying a new replacement.  On the console, you can wipe it down with rubbing alcohol and it will be good as new.
