Good morning from Sussex

Postby okeydokey » Thu Oct 26, 2017 9:45 am

Hi Folks
I've just acquired a BBC B with fd drive a selection of tapes, manuals and it came in a HUGE black marked BBC box 28x21x5 inches approx.
I was told the psu had popped with smoke/smell and have replaced the 3 capacitors per ebay purchase but don't know to proceed any further - lights come on so the psu works . I think it might have keyboard issues. Anyway I will post a helpme in another forum. Any BBC geniuses in Sussex please let me know :)
regards all

Welcome! At the risk of impinging on your repair thread try unplugging the keyboard and then switch it on. If you hear brrr beeeep and then just get a flashing Mode 0 cursor it could well be the keyboard.
