1. well I have to build a scart cable for an amstrad cpc464 that someone donated to me I dont have a modulator or a screen for it so a scart is the way to go I have a 5volt adapter somewhere so I should get it done don't know if this machine works but if it does I will probably donate it to the recycle bin or something I didnt really want it but I could always de solder the ram chips but it would be a waste

2. Repair more c64's
3. Tidy up...


edit edit edit

I forgot

4. fire up that 4000

@shem

You sound like a guy with lots of spares around the house....

I'm looking for a Ricoh RP5C01 RTC Chip for my A4000, (was used on A3000 too).
If you could keep your ear to the ground for me I would appreciate it.

Cheers
TC :mrgreen:

BTW....tip don't use the Words "Fire up" when discussing retr0 gear mate, it tempts fate far too easily :LOL:

@TC

yep looking at the IC now just getting some datasheets

Looks like the ricoh and oki m6264 have the same pinout although I havent studied the datasheets too much

but I guess it's the same story the crappy batt has P****d itself leaving nothing but death and destruction in its path

I do have an old A4000 board which works but there is no rtc function due to that very thing happening to me but the IC you're after seems intact
I just have to de solder it

sorry if this against the rules but if you decide to get rid of that cpc464 i may be interested. I've wanted one of these since i was a kid and my dad got rid of ours.
