Hi,

I want to be able to use my Internal usb and Zaxon drive, any idea how I can do this, I thought all the information was already preloaded for me.

This looks like the problem, it’s rusted at the keyboard base and has destroyed the membrane, I have a spare hopefully

Can’t see anything obvious, but will give it a clean and see how we go

So, after further investigation and sweating buckets, I found out that the ribbon cables from the keyboard are stopping the CPC from starting up!

If none of the RAM chips are hot (small OKI chips), try to replace the Z80 first as it's in a socket, and they can have faults these days.

Ram chips cool to the touch, changed Z80, no difference, changed 40010, no difference. I’m thinking that bloody ROM chip

Held Del key down, no noise. I forget, which is the Rom chip, I’m sure I’ve got spares...
Ok :/
Check if any of the RAM chips are hot, would be first thing that comes to mind, but tbh. I am not sure if it would get to setup the blue colours without working RAM, iirc. it will crash somewhere in lowerrom before that and leave you with a grey screen/black border.
40025 is the romchip.

No 40010 is the gate array.

Does pressing DEL make a sound?
It seems to setup the proper colours with the blue screen (rom chip needs to work for that).

Only blue screen with shorting But the lights and everything turn on... Maybe Rom chip has gone
