Hide information about Commodore

Commodore International is a US electronics company, founded as early as 1954 by Jack Tramiel.  It is commonly known as just Commodore, or Commodore Business Machines (the name of its Research & Design operation).

Originally making typewriters, the Company moved to calculators in the 1970s, and then computers.  Their first computer was the Commodore PET (1977), aimed at the business market.  The move into the home market was made in 1981, with the VIC-20, Commdore 64 and finally the Amiga in 1985.

Versions of the Amiga continued to be produced up to 1992, when Commodore International decided to move into the dedicated games console market with its CD32 console.

Over the years, Commodore released over 20 different computers and two games consoles.  This must be something of a record.

The company revived in 2005 after a few mergers with Yeahronimo Media Ventures Inc., SATXS Communications BV, and Tulip Computers, and had moved into making PC compatible computers.

Although our roots are firmly based with the Sinclair QL, we supply a wide range of second hand and original software and hardware, for both the QL, ZX Spectrum and Commodore 64.

Over the past few years, we have been instrumental in getting the DivIDE Plus compact flash interface for the ZX Spectrum built, along with replacement ZX81 Keyboard Membranes, 48K ZX Spectrum keyboard membranes and ZX Spectrum faceplates.

TERMS:

All prices quoted are for labour only (except for re-capping services where standard capacitors are included in the price) - any parts used (except small parts costing less than £3 in total) will be invoiced extra at prices ruling on date of installation. Where part are not available, or where the price is not acceptable, I will fit a socket wherever possible and the normal labour cost only will apply. Customers can then fit their own part at a later date.

If I am unable to repair any computer sent to me (except for the reasons above), I will refund any money paid less return shipping costs. This applies providing a previous repair has not been attempted. Where machines have had previous repairs, or where corrosion from leaking batteries or spilled drinks are present then I reserve the right to make a minimum charge of £25 in view of the fact that I need to spend more time cleaning boards and / or checking previous work.

WARRANTY:

I have been asked a few times about warranties on my repairs, so here is an explanation of how I work. In the 1980s I started my own business repairing and manufacturing computers. I worked primarily on Spectrums, C64 and BBC Micros, but also on other home computers and PCs from IBM, etc. I did this for some while, then worked in technical support roles until retiring in 2004. I am now a hobbyist who enjoys repairing old computers and the like, not a business. I sell and repair machines from time to time to help fund my own collection of computers, test equipment, tools etc. and as such I don't make large profits and am unable to offer the sort of warranty you are likely to get on new items. Also, due to the age of the computers I repair, there is a larger risk of component failure than with new parts. Accordingly, in the event of any failure of a repair that I have undertaken (other than cosmetic), I will further repair free of any labour costs for at least 3 months from date of original repair. I would expect you to pay shipping (both ways) and the cost of any parts used. After 3 months I will work on a case-by-case basis, but will try and be as flexible as I can.
