Re: ZX81 generates high pitched sound on CRT

Thank you for your replies about a faulty flyback transformer. There are maybe 2 things that indicates this is not the problem: I don't know the age of the monitor, but I have just bought it, and has never been used before. I unwrapped the package.

Re: ZX81 RAM Disk Operating System

You can look at SIMDOS2 which is a RAM-disk for ZX81.

I use it when I need to join lines from different programs. Great software.

Re: Splash Scree

I think both EightyOne and other emulators support recording the screen to animated GIFs. I've used it my self to demonstrate my programs.

Re: ZX81 generates high pitched sound on CRT

I havn't opened up the monitor.

I don't feel so comfortable with an open monitor turned on, and sticking my head near, trying to listen, when it's turned on. I think of the high voltage of the CRT.

Re: Splash Scree

Cool.

An easy way to look at the source is to add these 3 lines:

Code: Select all

50 FOR X=1 TO 9999
60 PRINT A$(X)
70 NEXT X
Then you type GOTO 50 to show a screenfull of source code, and CONT to display the next etc.
