Re: PRYNT, POKU, bad ROM or ULA in TS1000?

Sounds like you're on the right track with corrupt ROM or ULA. The string that gets echoed from the one-byte PRINT command code is actually " PRINT ", or space-PRINT-space. Same idea with POKE. That mapping seems to be partially corrupt, and the echo strings contaminated. I'll leave it to the smarte...

Re: Improving Timex/Sinclair Tape Loading

I am concerned about our friend in Texas, gammaray. He was a regular poster on this forum, but hasn't posted anything since February. I hope he's all right. Does anyone know of a way to get in touch with him? Of secondary importance I am saddened that this "project" (a kit so we could all build a wo...

Re: Improving Timex/Sinclair Tape Loading

That's a cool idea, but I'm not sure I'd want it inside the case. I use mine as a "sometimes" device for direct dubbing one tape to another, and the rescue of the odd tape that "just won't load". It might be possible to cram it in there; I'm just not sure it's worth the trouble. Any luck with the PC...

Re: NOOO.. My just arrived TS 1500 is flakey!

I recently discovered a power supply in with my ZX81 stuff that was capable of running a bare bones ZX81, but was not up to the job of a ZX81 with memory pack. Screen puke of various description. (Tossed it out of there of course.) Try another power supply unit, just in case.

How to Load a Program

There has been much discussion of late upon the perils of loading a decades-old Sinclair ZX81 program from cassette tape, and the best volume control setting etc. to use. I humbly feel that the following method, developed after years of research, yields the most consistent results: Invent a time mac...

Re: Programs on tape

Sorry Jørgen, but actually both programs are missing the beginning of the file. I can do nothing with incomplete files.

Biorytmer looks like it may have been an accident in re-recording the clip to the computer. If so, then you can try that one again.
