it would be kind to tell me how far I came. Something like :MISSION 0.2% COMPLETED
could you please add this to your "nice to have"?
Kind regards Paul

Re: WANTED: Large quantity of 2x23 Card Edge Connectors

Ah, I don't add a key but bend over the back two pins together and solder them so the feathers can't be pulled out. If you design your own pcb you can solder them to the PCB as well. Then I solder a little piece of wire across the two feathers which acts as the key. Main reason for soldering the key...

Re: WANTED: Large quantity of 2x23 Card Edge Connectors

I buy from the producer. They are not NOS but hey those connectors in the 80ies were awful quality. Bent and broken feathers or broke plastic everywhere, even with otherwise top products like Memotech. These are brand new, best quality I ever saw! The twin feather contacts go around 360 degrees, a f...

Re: TS1000's (ZX81's) black screen

In case you want to sell the broken TS1000, Zxkim81 is searching for one. You could send it to me, I repair it and add a working rampack and send it to Zxkim81.
Maybe this way we can get a reasonable price for Zxkim81 .

Kind regards

Re: TS1000's (ZX81's) black screen

Hi dessony, pin 17 is the NMI. if this is open circuit or 5V then your zeddy should run in fast mode always.If it's alway low your zeddy wont show anything as its constantly executing Adress 66h in your ROM. In doubt just don't insert pin17 into the socket (bend it a little) for tests. If Pin 6 (CLK...
