In 2022, the Spectrum was 40 years old. It was originally released on St. George’s Day, 23rd April in 1982.
So what are the most common problems with the first two models, the rubber-keyed 16k and 48k model (shown above) and its successor, the hard black-keyed Spectrum + that also has 48k of memory?
These PopeyMon Technical Articles look at the common problems in four parts:
- Part 1 – The Keyboard Membrane
- Part 2 – The TV Display
- Part 3 – It Will Not Start Up!
- Part 4 – Broken Components including Electrolytic Capacitors and Power Circuit
