Entry 14th January 2019: Post 01: Spectrum 16K - Stage II

Spectrum 16K - Stage II

Previously on scuzzblog I had opened up the rare 16K Spectrum I
have to discover that she was an Issue 2 and with just 16K. Sadly
in opening up the case I managed to crack the connector to the
keyboard. In truth I think it was partially broken anyway. May
even been subject to a bit of tape repair. So I hopped over to
trusty Ebay and DataServe and purchased 2 new membranes.

They arrived and I set too again carefully heating up the keyboard
face plate and gently easing off with some plastic mobile phone
tools. All went without issue and in no time I had the new membrane
installed and she was working no problem.

Such a thrill and a joy to have a 16K Spectrum working again. Anyway
I just checked this HTML document and its size is 20K. Just to give
some idea of how small the memory was on the Spectrum 16K.
