Title: CPC PLUS new owner
Post by: Misel982001 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?

Do you want me to post a clearer picture?

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?

Take some pictures.


As far as I know Plus machines don’t have any cable that is part of them.

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...

Forget the system cartridge, and ask gerald if he can sell you one c4cpc.

c4cpc can load every system cartridge


As example this is the original spanish system cartridge.
