Shipping to Romania would cost £2.60 for the built board or £1.25 for the bare board.

You can have the bare board for £3.50 and the fully built unit for £10. I doubt you could build one for less.

I haven't tested it by the way, so I'll need to do that before sending.

So, in the first picture we see it working.

The second picture shows how the board fits directly onto the blue video connector on the PCW's main board.

The third picture shows the connections from the video board to:
  • The +5v line on the second floppy power cable (the ORANGE wire)
  • The video connection to the monitor (the white adapter plugged into a standard phono plug that goes into the TV's composite video input)

Regarding the video adapter, I'll send you one for an extra £2. You then need a phono - phono plug and (maybe) a SCART/Euroconnector as is shown here: http://www.cpcwiki.eu/index.php/File:PCW_composite_video_cable.JPG.

For the avoidance of doubt, the video adapter I am offering you looks like this:

The other parts you need are shown on the linked to picture (phono-phono cable and Euroconnector adapter, if your TV/monitor does not have a "composite video" input).

Wouldn't this deserve its own thread?

Maybe, but it is all in reply to the OP's problem. I've designed, built and tested this mixer board for Radu and as he is not confident with electronics I have tried to explain with pictures how to fit it to his PCW.

Makes sense, but I thought that the answer here was more important than the question (if that even makes sense) :D

What, you mean a wiki page entitled "What to do if your PCW PSU fails"?

No, (though yes, it wouldn't be a bad idea), I meant a thread about the little board :)

It's nothing much to shout about, Gryzor. I mean we're not talking about a "Habi Special" here...    :D

wow, sure i would also suggest to open an extra thread.
The PCW seems to have a lot of potentials when comes to expansion topic.


Did you check what possiblities we have to connect it to a standard VGA monitor ?

What, you don't have a small TV with a SCART plug?

...and it looks like I wasted my time.

You don't need a scart connector any tv or monitor that have simple composite input (yellow RCA jack) will do the job
