Lol, who'd have thunk it!!JezC wrote: ↑Tue May 04, 2021 10:42 pm@rubber_jonnie I managed to collect that NC100 from work today...powers up OK but so far not managed to get any of the keys to respond (but to be honest, that's what the original listing said, so no real surprise there).
I suspect that my first task will be to open it up & see how the insides look - no obvious battery damage for either the CR2032 or the 4x AA, so that's a promising start.
Edit: And to think that my 1000th post is about an Amstrad...
My bet is on a disconnected or broken keyboard ribbon. There are two of them, mine seemed pretty robust if I'm honest.
Be interesting to see if you have had the power fuse replaced or bodge wired.
