Why did the 9V adapter fit into the 5V socket?


It was not he original Power unit anymore... I used the C4cpc Flashdrive so I took a 9v alternative unit, unfortunately it was fitting in both sockets

Because Amstrad stupidly used similar sockets and didn't even bother labelling them!

If you use an 8pin din to scart and 5v supply you can remove the risk of this happening, alt remove or cap the 5v input.
