The inside of a rubber key Sinclair ZX Spectrum with 48k RAM.

PopeyMon Games and Fun has extensive experience of refurbishing and repairing all models of the Sinclair ZX Spectrum. The Spectrum range goes through all the models, whether 16k/48/+/128k/Grey +2/Black +2/+3.

These machines are over 30 years old, with some now nearly 40 years old – 1982 is the anniversary of the birth of the Spectrum.

So many will have gone wrong over the years, or developed faults or stopped working all together. And so some Spectrums need some work to get the working properly again.

This service is for initial testing and assessment once you have sent your machine to me, and covers the first hour of repair work. I will contact you if it needs more work and will not do any more until I have OK’d it with you.

Depending on the issue(s), it may be that it can be fixed in the first hour.  Now there is such a wide range of models in a great range of conditions.

And there can be many possible causes of faults.

So please get in touch to discuss your situation, and I will give you a quote for some of all of the work. In some cases, I will need to see photos and then I will need to make a more detailed assessment when I receive the machine.

The base price of £29 covers the testing and assessment, a report back to you and the first hour of work. As said above, I will not proceed any further until I have spoken with you.

You meet the cost of the postage and packing to me. The postage cost included in the service is for the return of the board to you. If you want an enhanced postal service, then let me know and I will invoice any extra.

If the repair is going to take longer, I will be in touch about further recommendations and cost. Rest assured that I will not carry out any work until and unless I have discussed it with you first. When the work is complete, I will invoice you for the work, parts and the return postage.

I also offer a range of specific services, repairs, refurbishments and products. Please see the rest of the PopeyMon shop. I also offer packages of services at reduced rates for the bundles.

I also sell fully refurbished SInclair ZX Spectrum computers, and games, joysticks, joystick interfaces, power supplies, tape players and leads. It may be cheaper to buy a fully refurbished machine, instead of repairing yours. Or you can do both!

I can also put together a custom bundle for you, if you contact me. Please see the article at this link here for more information. I have many happy customers that I have put bundles together for.

Thanks for shopping at the PopeyMon Webshop.
