Re: Zxpand to sell?

But YannFr should be first in the line, as it's his topic. I'll have it though if he doesn't want it.

Re: Purpose of this Save/Loading device?

I thought that you'd found details of a very similar device online somewhere, not that you'd created the circuit details! I'll open it up again and will let you know about the resistor and cap values.

Re: Zxpand to sell?

I am, but I suspect I'm not the only one.

Re: Timex sinclair computers and 1 TS2040 printer for parts.

Shame US only, as I'd certainly have those (perhaps without the printer as a bit bulky and faulty). I suspect the shipping is a fortune though, but I'd certainly offer US$80 with shipping to Germany, if that's any good?

Re: Purpose of this Save/Loading device?

Excellent, it certainly looks exactly like that (without checking each connection yet). I'll feed it with 5v and a cassette and see if it makes any difference.

Re: Russian PCB ZX80 clone problem

I'm following this more intently now, to see how you get on with yours. I was inspired to get mine to a working state, so popped the chips on, added a power socket and with ZX8-CCB Video, plus a 2732 ROM with the correct data on it, all I get is a plain white screen (a little flicker, then white)! I...

Re: Russian PCB ZX80 clone problem

I have a Chinese EPROM programmer and before I started putting the sockets/resistors/caps etc on the board I thought I should probably check all the chips as their age and source was unknown (I wasn't bothered about the Z80 as I have some known good spares of those). I was able to use the same progr...

Re: Russian PCB ZX80 clone problem

I bet the EPROM is empty for a start! With mine I also got a couple of wrong 74XX chips, so also check those are all correct.

Oh yes, I have those alternate EPROM connections on mine too, never noticed that! Well, in that case, that looks ok.

Re: Purpose of this Save/Loading device?

Here we are. Back is marked with the transistor positions (both are BC239C) and C for capacitor, R for resistor.

Any idea why the circuit is broken where those two wires come out next to that resistor at the bottom?

Re: Purpose of this Save/Loading device?

Yes of course. I would have removed it all, but it looks like I'll have to remove the switches and 5v socket to get the board out. The CR-TB switch just choses between 2 different resistors and neither position seems to make contact so I'll take everything out and clean it all up.
