CoCo3! Tandy Color Computer 3 Repair and Restoration #retrocomputing
RetroGuy recently acquired a TRS-80 Color Computer 3 – a now-historic computer unveiled just over 30 years ago, on July 30, 1986 – and it was in need of a slight repair, and a serious cleaning. The video below includes a sneak peek at his then-in-progress retroroom (which was recently mostly finished and he gives a tour of in this video).
One of the few Tandy TRS-80 Color Computer 3 in Europe. I received it in June 2016 but it was in a very rough shape. The keyboard didn’t work entirely and the thing smelled like a pack of cigarettes. Now, after one month with a insulation of my room in between, I managed to get the machine up and running again. In this video I’m showing the way to the final repairs and problems I faced, ending in a working Tandy CoCo 3!.
