Thanks. Looks good them. Leave it on for an hour, but only if you have the time.

Wanted: Zilog Z80, week 17 1982

For originality (in an Issue 1 Spectrum as it happens) I'm looking for a 1982 Zilog branded Z80 that is as close as possible to week 17. Perhaps someone has a socketed one of that date in a ZX81.

Happy to swap for a newer Z80 or to pay a fair price.

I think I remember seeing that at some stage. I expect I'm going in his spam folder. I'll make a donation and will include a message.

What happened to zx81stuff.org.uk ?

I find zx81stuff.org.uk a great resource for ZX81 software and other stuff, but I don't think it's still maintained as over the last couple of years I've sent messages to Simon Holdsworth and have never had a reply. Perhaps I go straight into a spam folder somewhere. Does anyone know if zx81stuff.or...

Re: Poorly issue two Spectrum

Replacing the two RAMs means it now boots fine to the Sinclair logo! Is there anything else I should check before leaving it switched on for any length of time? Presumably something caused the chips to fail in the first place. I think you should be fine (if the 3 voltages are good). The 4116's tend...

I replaced it with whatever should normally go in that socket just because it looked tidier. You don'...
