OK! Hope you can get it looking like a factory 731 soon!
It looks very good after cleaning, see picture on page 1 in this thread. Apart from the missing F-key it looks almost like new, just a little bit of yellowing.

Re: Not so shiny new MZ

I think it was two of the Swedish letters that swapped place. Long time since I had the computer at hand now. The CG rom might also be special. The high part (the one that wasn't very well documented in the manual) had other characters in the Swedish version. Large letters made for the Swedish Tele...

Re: Not so shiny new MZ

Can you show us a picture of the MZ Jo? I'm interested in how it is going after this time. It looks exactly the same today. I have not had time to do anything else than playing a bit of Star Avenger on it since I got it. There is a bug in the original Swedish Rom, IIRC. I remember I made a special ...

Forum spam

Due to an increasing amount of spam I have activated Admin activation of new users today. This means that any newly registered user will not be able to post anything until approved by board admins. I hoped to avoid this as it makes things harder for genuine MZ fans, but with the amount of spam we're...

Re: [SD2MZCMT] GitHub link

I also want to add a very fast serial transfer between Arduino and MZ to load/save MZF files using the tape signals. Not quite sure what you mean by this. If you want to add an alternative, faster interface, wouldn't the easiest and fastest be to connect it directly to the databus and access the Ar...

Re: MZ700 PSU - magic smoke escaped

I will replace the capacitor with a less smelly one :) Or maybe replace the PSU with a more modern one.

Re: Reviving a MZ-1P01 plotter

I guess I should have done something, as when I tested the paper feed it worked for a few seconds and then the roller stopped. I can still hear a motor spinning, so I guess there's a rubber belt or something that has disintegrated over the years.

Re: Not so shiny new MZ

Yes, that's an option if I can't find a replacement. However, you never get the subtle details right so it won't look very good.
