Identify my 6128
« on: 14:15, 21 December 11 »
Hi,

I just bought a 6128. It come from France and it lacks the FDD stickers.




I read this on the wiki :

Quote
French 6128 with QWERTY keyboard (english 6128 bundled with french manual & french sticker on FDD - this unit was sold in a french shop, when AZERTY keyboards were out of stock)



http://cpcwiki.eu/index.php/File:PV250X_French_CPC_6128_-_Qwerty.jpg

On the wiki photo, the sticker seems to be damaged -> bad quality.

On mine the text near the Amstrad Logo is also "128k Colour Personnal Computer" and not "Ordinateur Personnel Couleur 128k" like the classic Qwerty french model.



So my 6128 is maybe one of those "french cheap stickered" model ?

I'm currently trying to remake a new sticker in Illustrator  8)

I got a french QWERTY CPC and the plate is black.
I buy it in 1986, before the AZERTY version was released.


Done  ;D
You don't got it with a better resolution for printing? :)

And what's the text near the Amstrad logo ? "128k Colour Personnal Computer" or "Ordinateur Personnel Couleur 128k" ? On mine everything is in English ("on" near the red led and not "en marche", etc.

I don't remember... (shame) I have to check this saturday.
But, if you got all in english, it will be nice to add a black english plate too...  8)

Difference can be screen frequency : 50Hz or 60Hz, in france it was 50Hz. And wall power-plug ^^

Well, those would be bog-standard UK CPCs, just with the metal sticker removed and another placed on top of the drive, so no identification issues really...
I'd suggest going to a professional printer and taking a look at the options. Especially if they've got any leftover materials it may be very cheap to produce; others charge by the square meter which would sent you back €20-50 depending on material and quality.

You could have a batch made and sell the others to people that need to a replacement.

Arguably more useful, but a bit over the top? :D
