Refurbishing a ZX Spectrum 16K (Part 1)

I came across a ZX Spectrum on an auction site that was listed as not fully working. Video out was working but the keyboard was not working.

Since I already wanted to try my luck at repairing a ZX Spectrum I decided to buy this unit and see how I would fair in fixing up this old puppy.
