Title: What exactly do I need to run a 6128+ with a new monitor (non Amstrad)?
Post by: banana on 12:38, 19 February 21
Hi everyone. I want to run my 6128+ with a SCART monitor. From what I gather I need another power supply and a cable, is this right?Anyone know where to get these?

Hi,


I'm using one of these for a 6128 Plus and it works fine:

For a PSU I'm sure someone else here will advise you :)

I use one of these. 2.5mm internal diameter with a spring to reduce down to 2.1mm if you have the need...

I'm using these for the Plus: https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B00DELCYP6 (https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B00DELCYP6)


and these for the CPCs (with internal Gotek):

And then a good USB-Charger with 2.4A on one Port.
