Repairing the Datacorder on YOUR Sinclair 128k ZX Spectrum +2 (Grey) or +2A (Black) or +2B (Black).
2 in stock (can be backordered)
This is a service offered by PopeyMon to repair and refurbish the disc drive on your Sinclair 128k ZX Spectrum +3. The service applies to the Sinclair ZX Spectrum +3 only. I also offer a service to refurbish the tape drive (Datacorder) on a +2.
The disk drive can stop loading and saving. It can completely jam up. It can damage disks.
These problems can be caused by dirt, dust, heat, corrosion, physical damage to keys, the drive belts, the mechanism, poor PCBs, bad repairs and so on.
The disk drive repair service works like this:
- You buy the service from this website, which includes the return postage. After checkout, I will send you the address to send to.
- You package up and send me your disk drive by extracting it from the case, or you can send me your whole Sinclair ZX Spectrum +3.
- I carefully remove the existing disk drive and fix it.
- I put the repaired disk drive back in to your +3, or if you have sent me just the drive, to one of my +3 test machines. I test it.
- Optionally, I can perform repairs or other improvement work as requested by you. These services cost extra – please see the services I offer below.
- I send the disk drive or +3 back to you, carefully packaged.
The costs are:
- £20 to repair the disk drive on a Sinclair ZX Spectrum +3. Return postage cost is added at Checkout. The postage to send to me will be met by you.
