Hardware: Spectrums

ZX Spectrum units that have been fully repaired and refurbished by us.

At a mimimum we will have completed the following:

  • Replaced the electrolytic capacitors with new Vishays. These are high quality to ensure they will last for many years and have a similar blue colouring to the originals.
  • Addition of ULA heatsink (removal of ULA socket and soldering of ULA directly to the motherboard).
  • Fully dismantled and cleaned, including the rubber key-mat and case. (Full dismantle; Clean of case and key mat in warm soapy water followed by deep clean - particularly of the rubber key mat - with isopropyl alcohol; clean of motherboard and connector)
  • 'ZX Spectrum' white paint touchup.
  • Full diagnostic ROM check, keyboard test, soak test for minimum of 1 hour and game load and play test.

If you cannot see a unit available then please contact us, as we may have a suitable unit in stock and awaiting work. We mostly have 48K rubber key models, but also some other models such as the 48K plus and 128K +2 as well. If you are after a particular issue or model then please get in contact to see if we have anything suitable: we'll be happy to reserve one for you and prioritise its' completion.

Depending on condition, completeness of accessories etc and amount of work completed cost of hardware will be approximately as below.

  • Motherboards £30 - £50
  • Unit only £60 - £80
  • Unit with cables, PSU and manuals £70 - £100
  • Boxed unit cables, PSU and manuals £100 - £150

WARRANTY:

Retro Revival is a hobby business that I run in my part time because I enjoy repairing these computers and bringing the joy of the ZX Spectrum back to those who don't have the skills or time themselves. I don't make large profits and am unable to offer the sort of warranty you are likely to get on new items. In addition, due to the age of these computers, there is a larger risk of component failure than with new parts.

I offer a 28 day returns guarantee - if you are unhappy with your purchase for any reason you can return it for a full refund provided you let me know as soon as possible (via email on sales@retrorevivalshop.co.uk) and ship it back to me within 28 days of receipt.

In addition I offer a limited warranty, that in the event of any failure (other than cosmetic), I will repair free of any labour costs for at least a year from date of purchase. This does not include the cost of shipping (both ways) and any additional parts required.
