This Spectrum was sitting unloved and forgotten about in a dark cupboard for so long, I don’t even know where I got it from. It’s been sitting there since before I even started to care about Spectrums – dark unfocused days, back when my life had little meaning…
Initially I was going to sell it but as soon as I looked at it again after all those years, I knew it was a keeper.
You will never know but this was proper dirty before I cleaned it.
Doesn’t show in the photo but the white plate is actually shiny!
In case you wonder if it’s normal to find small cardboard bits inside the keyboard – no, it’s not. But it is common to have Speccy+ keyboard not working as it should, maybe this could fix it?
Nothing to see here, keep going…
So the surface below the keys is of the same texture as the rest of the case – as in not polished like most are.
Issue 6A. (The ULA is by Ferranti, not SAGA)
Yellow caps, like on a Toastrack! And fairly late lower RAM datecodes, too.
The Eprom is the Spanish version of the Spectrum ROM
That bit of wire probably doesn’t belong on a beeper but I noticed it after taking the photo.
This photo is just a filler.
Bottom of the case
If illegible, the serial number is “113721”
Made in Spain
Old foam pads have disintegrated so I took the liberty of fitting new ones. You can get them here
