Re: HELP i was trying to replace caps now i have issues!

Do you have a multi-meter? If so use the continuity checker to see if the tracks are actually broken. If not then get one. :D They are cheap and extremely useful! Did it work ok before changing the caps? Did you change all of the caps in one go or did you do a couple and then test, and repeat until ...

Re: White screen and no cursor at all

Just checked my order history on Sell My Retro and it appears I have fitted 24 like this! I have not had to move R1 much from there on any of them. I believe PokeMon sets them up for one ULA type before sending them out... So you should only need to adjust them slightly if using the same ULA type. ...

Very useful when it gets wors...

Re: White screen and no cursor at all

Isn't that mini-pcb supposed to go into the modulator can? :? (after you rip its contents out). That would very much tidy up the wiring since all signals / power supply you need is right there. :oops: I always do it like this:- 8E420FA4-54FA-4B78-8AB2-7F9080AE92B7.jpeg The brown wire goes into the ...

Re: Very nice condition ZX81 up for adoption

Hi, Do you have a 16K expansion? Is the PSU included, you did not mention it? Yes, I am still interested. Thanks Rgds Hi It is for the computer only - no PSU or RAM pack etc. I am afraid. I can add in a cassette lead and RF / aerial lead. They didn’t come with the computer but I have some spares. S...

Thanks!
Hi

Are you still interested? If not I will let it go to Papalapa.

If I have not heard by the end of Friday 24th I will assume you are not interested.

Thanks.

I’m sure a moderator will be along to enable your PM but in the meantime I will look at postage costs from the UK to Hungary. :)
