Where did you get the SCART cable from, and what model of Spectrum is it?

I’m working on assumptions here but I have a grey +2 which works fine, but it’s had some work done on it to correct a common hardware fault on that model.

Now that fault doesn’t cause just a black screen normally, but if it’s repaired and you don’t have one of the SCART cables from Retro Computer Shack or one from Cool Novelties from the last 6 months or so you’ll get… a black screen. If you can solder it’s actually pretty easy to modify any Spectrum SCART cable by opening it up and swapping around pins 16 and 20.
