This one is probably not for you steve. I have no idea what the fault is, it doesn't have a power supply ive only tested it with a psu from a 48k+ and it showed no signs of life. Ive been told 128 draws more power than a 48k so with the correct psu it might work fine.

Thanks for the reply, since I have the repair skills of an Ameba I'd best pass up on this one.

Best of luck with the sale (y)

Steve.

Thanks for the info Pedro, I might have a +2 PSU in the loft. I think I'll take the gamble. Whats the total with P&P?

Can go with the DC Scart lead I guess in the same box?

Ok ive weighed it and guestimated the total weight including lots of packaging and it looks like the P&P would be £4.50 less the £1.50 you already paid would be £3 pllus the price of the item gives a grand total of £29.

Postage is quoted sending standard parcel 3 day del.

A 48k psu will not do the job, and the 128k will not power up.

That’s interesting JLPedro because the one I sold you powered up with a 48K psu even with a DivIDE+ attached. Have you tried it with a 48K psu? Hope you managed to sort out the sound chip.

Really :blink:? 48K+ psu is low on Amps, on the 48k+ it's 1.4A and the 128K is 1.85A both 9v dc (actually 12v, a 7805 regulates to 9v).

I still don't have a replacement AY chip, apart from that the 128k is working fine.

Now i'm feeling guilty about misleading fitzsteve... if the 128k does powers up with a 48k+ psu, only two possibilityes left, or the 128k is really faulty or the 48k+ psu is faulty...
:(

I’ve just been and checked the psu I last used with the 128 and it’s rated at 1.8 amps. Looks like I’m the one with the red face, sorry JLPedro.
Hope it all goes well for Steve.
