I have a Philips VG-8020-00 or VG-8020-20, I don't remenber, but I want to separate SOUND IN lines towards audio OP AMP between the two cartridge slots and probably I'm going to kill it in the process. Evil
Happy that I have another MSX machine: Panasonic FS-A1FX whose RAM was upgraded to 512KBytes from previous owner. This is a MSX2+ but it lacks MSX Music. At the moment I does not work with my Panamusement FM PAC. Quite sad about that. Sad
Funny that I use another MSX machine that I don't own: a Panasonic FS-A1ST whose RAM was upgrade to 512KBytes. I'm used to go with this machine because it has MSX Music inside and it runs just fine. MultiPlay-X version 1.12 is the player that I use the most, I know that there's a last MultiPlay-X v1.13 version, but I couldn't find it yet.

Bonus here

Just my good old childhood NMS8255 which is still in its original state except for the VDP which I have swapped with a V9958. The other one is a Turbo-R ST which I bought for testing purposes but I started to love the turbo-R so the good old NMS8255 is catching a little bit of dust. I did a lot of maintenance on the turbo. Repaired alot and put some extra RAM in. Ohw and there is that one MSX that I do not own Wink

Apparently these 12:

  • Al-Alamiah Sakhr AX-170
  • Canon V-20
  • Panasonic FS-A1 (MSX2)
  • Panasonic FS-A1ST (turbo R), 512k
  • Philips NMS 8245 (MSX2)
  • Philips VG-8020/40
  • Sony HitBit HB-75P
  • Sony HitBit HB-F1XDJ (MSX2+), 256k
  • Spectravideo 728
  • Toshiba HX-10
  • Yamaha YIS-503 III R (MSX2)
  • Yashica YC-64

At some point I bought them because I wanted to test compatibility, but some are just the result of reckless hoarding.

I have but a small herd of MSX:

  • Daewoo DPC-200 (MSX1) : my original one, still at home, but only because I sold it to my cousin back in the '90s and then got it back a few years later (otherwise I would have sold it along with all my MSX collection back in '95). A survivor.
  • Spectravideo SVI-728( (MSX1) : my very first computer was a Spectravideo SV-328, which I was convinced was an MSX. Needless to say I was bitterly disappointed ... I bought this one to have the 'feel' of that 328, and the real MSX deal. A bit like correcting a wrong 30 years later.
  • Sony HB-F9P (MSX2) : I wanted an MSX2 without disk drive (I don't remember why). And I like its look.
  • Panasonic FS-A1WX (MSX2+) : I wanted an MSX2+ or a TR, in order to have all generations represented. The TR were too expensive (and quite pointless, I think), so I went for an MSX2+ with a nice look.

I still have two lying around: The Philips VG-8235 I (or more precise: my father and I) bought in 1986 (which was upgraded with a 720Kb drive, 256 KB RAM and MSX2+) and a Sony HB-F900AP (which is still fully original, except for the extra 512 KB which was easily build in, as it already had a socket for that). Both suffer from the problem that some keys are not responsive. Any (easy) solution for that, as I'm certainly no hardware wiz?

Bas Kornalijnslijper once told me that it's quite easy to repair (at least) a Sony 500/700/900 keyboard in case keys don't respond anymore... Maybe he can repair it for you...
While at it you could check for the 8235.

Poltergeist, just be super careful if you want to open your VG 8235! It's very easy to break the casing sides under the keyboard when trying to unclip them. You have to put your keyboard in lower position first, and not apply too much pressure to unclip, that's a bit tricky. You'd better ask for some help with that if you don't feel confident.

Once your computer/keyboard is opened, it's usually quite easy to clean the connectors (usually 2 plastic sheets) and keys.
