Issue 1 Spectrum 16K, s/n 9197 in need of TLC and new home

Post by Lardo Boffin » Thu Jun 21, 2018 10:54 pm

Hello all

The clearout continues! I had meant to get this one sorted out and working but never got round to it and probably will not now. So if anyone is interested it is up for £100 plus p&p.
It is in I would say very good physical condition - just the white Sinclair rubbing off. I will post some more photos taken in the daylight tomorrow.
Unfortunately it doesn’t work - it gets to the (C) Sinclair prompt more often than not but then the picture goes blocky. RAM issue maybe?
Regardless I would not attempt to fix one of these myself - not enough around to risk one (only 15,000 made of the issue one I have been told) and don’t really have the cash to spend when I have a working one. It may be an easy fix to those who know but that is not me. :oops:

PM me if interested!

Oh, it comes with polys (not brilliant), PSU (never tested as it has no plug and I always use my modern one), aerial lead and cassette leads (also never used... :oops: ) and the Introduction guide. :D

A few more photos in the daylight. As can be seen there is a little scuff near the Q key but that is about it.
