Vintage Sinclair ZX-80 Computer System with all original parts - very rare. Is a great little computer designed by Clive Sinclair.This was the first affordable computer widely available to enthusiasts. Official Sinclair USA AC Adapter. Official Sinclair Monitor/TV RF Cable. Official Sinclair Tape Recorder Cable. Original Sinclair ZX80 Assembly Instructions (includes parts placement and schematic).
Original Sinclair ZX80 Image Computer Products Catalog. Game Switch to connect the ZX80 to a vintage TV (twin lead connection). Copy of a few of the Sync magazine ZX80 Basic programs. Cassette tapes to record programs. The computer was last used over two decades ago and was completely operational then.
The computer has lived in a pet free and smoke free home. The top is attached with nylon screws and nuts (see the photo). The nylon screws allow easy access to the circuit board (later models used plastic rivets).There is one modification an earphone was added inside the computer (see the photos). This earphone allows the user to hear the tape as the program is being read into the computer. I do not have access to a vintage TV so I cannot verify the operation. An oscilloscope shows the expected SYNC waveform is present. Therefore I anticipate that the computer does work with an appropriate vintage TV.
Removing the top cover shows the condition of the chips and other components. The circuit board and keyboard is in beautiful museum quality condition. This is a vintage item.
The cabinet shows some wear, scuffs/scratches, discoloration, etc. Note the circular scratch on the bottom panel.
The visual condition is seen in the photos. Please review the photos before purchasing this computer.If you have any questions, please send a message. Thanks everyone for checking out this wonderful piece of history! Although this computer was operational about two decades ago, I cannot verify the current operation (I no longer own a vintage TV compatible with this computer). This computer is over 35 years old. Please feel free to ask questions. NO EUROPEAN, ASIAN, CANADIAN OR AUSTRALIAN SALES. Thanks for looking and check out my other listings for additional vintage items.
