Re: My ZX81 has died

I just found out something strange. If I move the PSU cable, the 81 comes back on, but a small movement of the cable, and it dies again. That means it's the PSU?

Has anyone figured out a way to use an external display?

Just wondering as technology has progressed so much since the Z88's launch If anyone has figured out or found an aftermarket device to offer a display out?
I know the Z88 itself doesn't offer much in expandability, but just wondering.
