Re: ZX80 video improvements

Thanks Mark. I will wait for the Chroma 80. I really don’t want to make any changes to this one.

ZX80 video improvements

Hello all I am finally the proud owner of a ZX80. :D It works but the output on my telly (even an old CRT) is predictably poor. Are there any non-invasive methods of improving the output?

Re: Broken +3

I eventually sent this off to be repaired. It turned out IC4 was faulty but my diagnostics software didn’t show it. Hey ho. Working nicely now thanks to Mutant Caterpillar Games. :D

Very nice condition ZX81 up for adoption

Hi all I have a very nice condition ZX81 up for adoption. I fairly regularly buy zeddies on popular auction sites to refurb and sell on to help pay for stuff I want to keep. Sometimes I come across interesting ones and put them on here first. This is an issue one but is in very nice condition indeed...
