CPC PLUS new owner
« on: 15:40, 16 June 19 »
Hello guys, I have just bought my dream machine, although with a delay of 29 years....I bought it in this exact condition. I suppose something is missing. I want to know what and where to find it in order I make it work. Thanx in advance. In case someone asks, I found this plus inside a huge warehouse and its owner had forgotten what exactly it was. I have attached a photo of it. Please check it out and let me know.

No idea what is missing from your photo, is it the system Cartridge?

I've never seen a CPC with the greek letters on the keyboard, was that the case too with regular CPCs?

A picture with something missing might help. That's a complete machine, so my answer would be "nothing's missing".

Well perhaps a photo is not needed. You say "I suppose something is missing", but no hint as to why you suppose that.

Guys, I dont know anything about how this machine works. I have no monitor. How may I connect to a TV? How may I power it? The only cable it has, is the one that is attached on it. What should I do?

Then, apart from system cartridge, you will need a power cable and a TV connector. Something like this:

Of course, you may get it from anywhere else...
