    I remember someone posted that their amstrad died, and they replaced some components on the PSU to repair it.

    This also resulted in the vertical bars being fixed.

    Could you share with us the exact components you used, and what exactly you did?

    I'm going nuts with these vertical bars, and if the installer doesn't have a pace V2, I'm going to have to give it a go.

    If you fiddle with the PSU, you will invalidate the warranty. If the box is faulty, refuse to accept it. Phone Sky up and tell them you want a working box or you will cancel. Just because it's a subscription service doesn't mean that Sky are immune from the Sale of Goods Act.

    Problem is I'm in from 6:30pm onwards only, and only mon-fri, so I have to get saturday calls, and come here especially....

    If they offer me a pace V1 can I refuse it and then continue to complain? (On the grounds it's an older generation, and therefore not equivalent)

    I'll accept a pace v2 or another amstrad, hopefully one will work, though I'd prefer the pace.

    To be honest, I'd rather have a second-hand Pace, than a new Amstrad.
