WHAT'S INCLUDED?

Complete case disassembly and thorough cleaning of the keyboard and the case.

Replacement of all electrolytic capacitors with high quality axial Vishay caps to retain the original look of the motherboard.

Fitting a heatsink onto the ULA to prolong the life of the Spectrum

Cleaning the Edge Connector and ensuring compatibility with new generation jumper-free SD card storage devices (divMMC Future).
PLEASE NOTE: Even though most Spectrums will work with old generation SD card storage devices (models with jumpers/dip switches), we can only guarantee compatibility with the jumper-less divMMC Future model.
Ensuring compatibility with old generation SD card devices can be arranged at a special request (charges may apply)

Carrying out the following modifications/improvements:

  • Providing proper RGB switching signal for the SCART lead. Lack of this modification may result in an unstable picture or risk damage to the ULA chip
