There were several versions 48k 48k+ 128k 128k+2 etc.
which version do you need the power supply for?"
Aha! Now you've caught me out Fruit Bat! I'm afraid I'm not sure which version it is, but I'd hoped the details on the power pack would have identified it for me. I put my name down for it as soon as I saw what Sinclair was launching, and didn't get delivery for something like 9 to 12 months as it was still being developed, so I presume it was the first version of whichever. I rather think it was the 128k, but I'm not 100% certain. The power pack has packed in and I'd like to replace it.
Just noticed your hyperlink Fruit Bat, and you've confirmed that apparently the same power pack was used by both the 48k and 128k. My duff one is marked as stated in the article:
Power Supply: Part no. varies. Input: 240V AC, 50Hz Output: 9V DC, 1.4A
Which seems to indicate the same one was used by either. I seem to remember that the date 1982 came up on the screen, and I bought it by mail order. It soon broke down on me and I returned it -- it was replaced by a complete unnopened box with a new machine. The same thing happened with the replacement, but I was so attached to the new one that when that packed in I asked for it to be repaired, they did just that! All without any extra cost. In the end I had manuals galore as you can imagine -- all bar one passed on the the needy!
"Useless 1 i hate to but in on your thread but what was sinclair launching?"
It was the Spectrum, 'introducing us to an affordable colour computer' -- or words to that effect. I was itching to get my hands on one, but they had all kinds of problems in the design, which meant we punters had to lay out our money and WAIT! It seemed to take forever, though fortunately I had good friends who'd lend me the spares they had from time to time. (Not Sinclair ones though). It was a whole new and fascinating world for me!!
