Quote from: rolandahoy on 13:29, 05 August 21To someone with CPC tech insights..Tried to resurrect a CPC464 (tall keys) and expand it with the M4 device (with the classic edge connector) at the same time... I was probably to eager, and connected the M4 device upside down ! Now the CPC seems completely dead, is it fried? Can this problem be corrected? Eg. replacing some components! Hopefully the CPC is not beyond repair!! Greetings from Rolandahoy!
Quote from: Duke on 20:07, 05 August 21How does it behave now when you turn it on without the M4 ?The LED comes on? - It shows something on screen ?Did you use an Amstrad Monitor as power source?
Quote from: rolandahoy on 00:36, 06 August 21Hi Duke The CPC is current completely off, even no light in the power LED, which worries me!First I used an external psu, with the Voltage and Amp specified in the wiki, the CPC worked (video out to TV via scart) - well some static in the loudspeaker - but what to expect after ages in a basement, even loaded some old tapes...Then I tried to connect the M4, but apparently I was to eager and first turned the wrong side up! The CPC failed to switch back on .... I assumed it may be the power supply - but after trying an old Amstrad green screen - still nothing happens! What happend - hope you can advise...Greeting from Rolandahoy.
