I am now offering a new service to Amiga A500+ owners who have been plagued by corrosion due to leaking batteries. A new main board has been reverse engineered and produced by Rob "Peepo" Taylor to replace the corrosion damaged board in these computers. Boards can be purchased directly from Rob, but for those who don't feel confident enough with their soldering skill (there are a LOT of solder joints to make - over 1800!), I can offer a full service build using a mixture of orginal parts from the damaged board and new parts where needed.
I would generally fit all new resistors, capacitors, IC sockets, transistors, and most of the logic ICs. From your original board I use most of the connectors and main ICs, together with a handful of obsolete or difficult to obtain parts such as the oscillator, crystal, line filter etc. All ICs are socketed for easier fault-finding / replacing in the future.
The A500++ board has jumpers to select whether the internal or external drive is DF0: and uses a replaceable battery rather than the old Varta one.
My price includes a new board (ask for a discount if you already have an A500++ board), assumes that all main chips are working and that the other parts to be taken from the board are in good condition. Should any parts not be suitable I will contact you as soon as practicable to discuss options.
I would normally expect to take between 2 and 3 weeks from receipt of your original board until the replacement board is ready. Please note that the price for this service assumes you are sending the A500+ board only, no case, disk drive, keyboard, power supply etc. Please contact me if you need extra work to be done.
Price includes return shipping (UK Only).
Please note: This is a repair service for your Amiga A500+. Your computer main board will need to be sent to me for this service.
