Hi, if anyone is interested in the Sharp running on FPGA, Ive written an Emulator for the MZ series (currently MZ80K/C/1200/A/700) under the MiSTer project. This is a hardware based emulation/simulation, details are at

Look at the MiSTer wiki to find out more about the platform.

Hi, I just thought I'd mention that I recently made a game for the Sharp MZ-80A, and that it is currently available to buy on cassette (or download for free). It works on the MZ-80K and MZ-700 too.

Check it out at

Hi folks,
One of my first PC's was an MZ80K purchased in 1979/80 which I still have, A few weeks ago I found the PC in it's original box and thought I resurrect it. After a small explosion I spent 1 a week or so rebuilding the PSU and checking the main board over (some corroded contacts and re soldered joints later it fires up with *SP-1002 Monitor* - or something similar. Sadly the basic tape seems to be missing, I have a Debugger Tape and a Reclocator but no basic! SP2025 I think was shipped. I never had drives for this PC. I have downloaded from your site but how to get it onto a tape? - or can somebody supply me with a copy to get me going? I'd love to see it fire up again! Many thanks, Bill Cooper

Just a thumbs up.
I'm so glad that this site still exists!
May it never be shut down. It is a great place to find detailed information about the good old Sharp series.
And a nice place to be nostalgic and read old adverts about the new era.

Keep up the good work!

I'm trying to recover the old MZ-80A SUC disk library. has the disks contents converted to tape format; but has anyone preserved the original disks collection or has been lost forever?

Kind regards to all Sharp fans!

I've made a crude LaTeX package that lets you typeset documents using all the characters in the MZ-721 character ROM provided on this website. To have a look, go to

and download


I have used it on Linux and Windows (and cygwin) without any worries.

after not finding an emulator for the MZ-700 running on Android, I started coding some of the old games as a retro-reminder...

The app is called RetroRunner MZ and can be downloaded for free from the Google Playstore:

I'd be happy if you like the games... So farMan-Hunt, Painful Man and Land Escape are included.

I have tried booting up my old Sharp MZ700. Machine powers up but the boot screen is corrupt. All just letters and numbers and various colours. Where do I start if I want to repair? Any repair guides or help would be appreciated.
