White screen of death

So after a year or so being in storage, today I powered up my ZX81 again, and would you believe it, the white screen with no 'K' cursor. I then plugged in my ZXpand and I saw this. IMG_6140.JPG Certainly looks like the 'ZXpand commander', minus any text. I could move up and down, select something, a...

Re: Why cant I flash my ZXpand?

That helps a lot.
100% working, and I upgraded the firmware to v2.2 and the ROM to v6.6 just to be safe.

Thanks for the awesomeness.

Re: Why cant I flash my ZXpand?

Found this thread:

viewtopic.php?f=6&t=576&p=5134&hilit=pr ... pand#p5134

talking about formatting as FAT vs FAT32. This fixed my problem.
Now I'm going to look into how to get Commander to auto run.

So I want to run the Commander program on my ZXpand, so after rereading the threads I upgraded the EPROM using my burner to v6.0, and I put the zxpandfw.bin file in a newly formatted 4gig SD card, plugged the SD card in to the system and powered up. All I get it the ZXPAND ...

Hi everyone, I wanted to let you all know that my new retro computing site, neoncluster.com, has finally gone live. It's still a bit of a work in progress, and you may come across some bad grammar, spelling mistakes, and the new look and feel still needs to be applied to some blog sections, but all ...

Re: Chooperdrop 3000...I'm confused!!!!

I emailed TheMrCerebro, and he was kind enough to fix the link on his web page, and I was able to download it and play it. The game actually turned out to be a Windows version of my game, while retaining the original graphics, which I think is totally novel. The major difference is that the elements...

Re: Souped up Zeddies

Here is my hacked zeddy, and soon to be for sale ;-)

Actually, it's even more hacked now than it is in the photo as it has a switchable multi ROM.
