Hi All

I just purchased an Oric 1 48K to add to my collection of vintage computers.
It didn't come with a power supply but I found a 9V 1A supply that fitted that came with an old broadband router (maybe it's not smoothed enough and is what is causing the problem).
I connected up to a TV and I get the  Oric screen showing "ORIC EXTENDED BASIC V1.0  47870 BYTES FREE   Ready" and a flashing cursor but when I type I get nothing.
I've already taken it apart and pressed in the socketed chips and checked the pins from the motherboard to the keyboard.
Has anyone any suggestions of what I could try next?

Thanks for looking ;)
