I got my first CPC 464 on January 29th, 2020, yup, many decades after it was first released. I remember visiting my friend years ago and he had a 464, we used to spend so much time on it playing Jet Set Willy II among other games, I’ve got JSWII on tape and I’m ready to test my first CPC 464.
Pingback: My second CPC 464 | Amstrad noob
I recently purchased a cpc464 with its amstrad colour monitor. The unit turns on, but I only get garbage screens. Would appreciate some pointers on what steps I can take to try and restore it.
if you can post a photo of it here that would be great, but more than likely it could be socketed ROMs that need re-seating (remove them with power off, clean the legs and re-insert). If that doesn’t help clean the motherboard with iso-propyl alcohol and consider replacing ram, I have some videos showing you how to replace RAM and also how to test it first using dandanator diagnostics
