Hello! New restoration project underway
« on: 16:41, 07 February 21 »

Hello,
Just wanted to say hi as a new uk based member!

I've started a repair/restoration of a CPC-464 (MC0044D) with spring/membrane keys) and looking forward to sharing how that goes/lessons learned along the way...and maybe for some advice from the experts if its needed.
This particular CPC was saved from being junked by it's previous owner; it has some rust (but nothing terminal),  tape deck doesn't work properly, video output is a bit unstable and it's very, very dirty...but pretty sure this is something that can be rescued.  It will be the first CPC464 i've worked on, but I spent last year learning how to fix & repair various gameboys, megadrives and the like - so surely this can't be that much harder...right?
