RUBBER KEY SPECTRUM 16K / 48K REFURB

If you want us to refurbish your ZX Spectrum, simply buy one of these "items" and we'll get back to you with instructions on what to do next. Before long it'll be back with you like new!
Average turnaround takes 2-4 weeks but we appreciate your patience at busy times.

WHAT'S INCLUDED?

  • Enabling composite AV output for TV - improved video quality with no need for tuning (Suitable TV lead will be supplied). If you prefer connecting the Spectrum via RF let us know and we'll keep the display original.
  • Replacement of all electrolytic capacitors with high quality blue Vishay caps to retain the original look of the motherboard
  • Fitting heatsink onto the ULA to prolong the life of the Spectrum (Please note the ULA socket will be removed and the chip will be soldered down directly to the motherboard to allow sufficient room for the heatsink inside the case)
  • Complete case disassembly and thorough cleaning of the rubber mat, faceplate and the case
  • Replacing rubber feet if missing or damaged
  • 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)
