Re: +2B RGB output

Yeah all the pin moves I have talked about are all at the DIN pin. I got the sound working this morning by doing the wire move so the cable works now. My new cable from Retrocomputershack arrived this morning and worked from the get-go. I’m not sure what happened with the other cable maybe someone h...

Re: +2B RGB output

I bought the +2/+3 cable for this machine. Managed to get the cable working last night by moving the 12v wire to pin 1 ( it was on pin 3 ) there is no sound yet but the audio wire is connected to pin 5 and not 3. I bought this cable from Cool Novelties and it's the first time I have used them. :evil:

Re: +2B RGB output

Changed to value of R44 to 470 Ohms and nothing has changed so maybe the cable is the problem as the TV normally switches to RGB itself. Tried it on two Televisions with the same result. So waiting on the new cable arriving to see.

Re: +2B RGB output

+2B RGB output

Hi Just bought a +2B and it was a bit problematic at first but seems okay now and the self test ROM passes the main tests. Problem I am having is with the RGB output it is very dark almost black/negative with no sound, the RF is fine. I brought a new lead and have no reason to suspect it is faulty, ...

Re: Elite - Firebird original 128k bypass the lenslok?

Yeah I am pretty sure the 48K first issue with the Lenslok I had wasn't compatible with the Toastrack I had back then. It would just crash. I do remember getting another version that had no Lenslok and had "48K/128K" on the box a bit later so I think that you would need to stick to the 128K version ...

Re: Day one games

I had bought The Hobbit, Horace & the Spiders and Manic Miner in the weeks leading up to my Spectrum arriving on my Birthday. So they were my day one games. I remember looking at the cassettes counting down the weeks before I could get to play them.

Re: Issue with ZX Spectrum +2 keyboard

My first suggestion would be to open the Spectrum, remove the keyboard from the top half of the case. Pop the metal backing plate off the keyboard and have a look at the keyboard membrane. If you bought it off eBay there is a good chance inside is filthy and the membrane is covered in gunk. Clean it...
