Hello from Auckland, New Zealand.

Postby ChalkyNZ » Sun Aug 18, 2019 9:20 am

Hi everyone, I've been a member for a while, but this is my first post. I'm trying to repair a Rev 5 QL, am off to find correct forum to post my Minerva ROM questions!

I'm a hobby-grade electronics repair guy, grew up with Sinclairs, Segas, and Commodores. So much more enjoyable than the business computers I work on these days!


Cheers.

A warm welcome to the forum! I don't suppose you had the SC-3000 Sega computer?

Yeah for big bucks. Try to get a broken one, usually RAM issues, or blown video circuit transistors.

Welcome to the group!

I hope you find your QL. I you duo find one you will most like need a new keyboard membrane. The Microdrives probably don't work. I just replaced 2 in mine. And your neighbor Charles sells the Drive and VMAP that work great as new micro drive. I have become adept now and replacing and installing micro drives snd VMAPs in the QL.

Anything I can do to help just let me know!
