Best way to clean a very dirty CPC464
« on: 16:57, 26 March 20 »
Hi there


I recently acquired a CPC464 (an early big key model - don't know if its a PCB or single foil keyboard yet as I have not opened it). The unit is very dirty and smelly (previous owner must have been a heavy smoker).


Any suggestions from the group please on how best to go about cleaning it (what cleaning products to use, best techniques for stripping the machine down - especially getting the caps off the keyboard)?


Thanks
Chris

Here's a video I did recently that involves cleaning a 472 (close enough for the 464). Hopefully that will help some.
