I have that same model, and I've been experiencing some condition for the past 10 years (which discouraged me from using it).

You know after you get that black screen with the options, where you choose either paintbrush, editor or basic. After I choose basic, The screen display shrinks to 8 characters width (instead of the entire span of the screen) and the text color is PINK (instead of white), the background is still blue.

Can you help me with this? How do I fix this?

SCREEN 0: WIDTH 80: COLOR 15,4,4: CLS: SET SCREEN

The last command (SET SCREEN) should save the screen settings into the clock chip, but as Jipe pointed out, you'll probably need to replace the battery for this to work. In the mean time, just use the first 4 commands after boot-up.

Also, if you hold CTRL while booting, it goes to BASIC directly, and doens't have Arabic in BASIC!

If the diskdrive is still working, maybe you could try to dump the roms of this machine, so it should be possible to emulate it.
