Re: gamesTM and the Sinclair ZX81

I have just messaged gamesTM on Facebook - apparently 1st November will be their final issue, so I asked if they would consider uploading the magazines to the internet to form an archive ! I also asked if they had PDFs of the issues you mention.

ZXpand+ Pre-Orders

I see that SirMorris has listed some ZXpand+ units on sellmyretro.com on a pre-order basis. A quick word from SirMorris: Starting a new run of boards is expensive. There is a large initial outlay to get PCBs and components ready. I am using the pre-order mechanism to help with this up-front cost. I ...

Re: Mostly working ZX80

It is probably more a case that the TV cannot pick up the signal from the ZX80 (as it lacks a back porch signal). The options are to fit a ZXVid or ZX8-CCB - you can find both options on www.sellmyretro.com :D However, I would recommend that you wait for advise to actually ensure that the ZX80 is wo...

Re: ZX Spectrum+ 128K Toastrack Repair

Certainly try and see if it does the same without the keyboard - check for debris in the keyboard connectors too - I wonder if it thinks a key is stuck down?

Re: ZX Spectrum+ 128K Toastrack Repair

I initially thought it was the keyboard (I can see it's a replacement keyboard) but the black or pink border around the start up screen is perplexing (almost as though it is trying to load something).. The one thing I did notice is that the PSU is an original Speccy one (UK 1400) - the Spectrum+128 ...
