- View SourceHI Guys/Girls,
been a reader of the list for some time now (nice and friendly/good info
etc..).. I would join MAUG, but getting to meetings on a weeknight from 120k
away isn't a good thing... plus the price of fuel now makes it worse...
I'm looking for a A3000 mother board in good working condition (with no
battery leakage or the battery having been removed). OR failing that a whole
Amiga 4000 system. (Don't need screen/mouse).
Please email me direct with what you have/photo's etc, and a price you want
and we might be able to do a deal.

- View SourceWas happly playing around with my A3000, compiling a new Linux kernel for the
beast! (It's towerd) After getting a brand new X-Surf network card a few
weeks ago... Leave her alone, and turned off for a few days.
Come back to the system, and she's dead jim! (Star Trek pun intended).
Strip the hole system down to just the motherboard and riser card (So out
comes the X-Surf, Cybervision 64, A2091 [Has my cdrom on it], Cyberstorm MK1

screen with insert floppy.. Coool, things might workout to just be a dead
Couple of days latter (when I had the time to spare), run more test's.. Boot
up with just a workbench disk, and nothing else hooked to the beast... A few
minutes latter and the &^%^%$& thing has locked up frozen (cant
Wish there was someone closer with another A3000 or A4000 to test things in!
Anyone in MAUG good at repair work? (I'll gladly bring the gear to your place
etc, and even through in a Membership to the group for the next year)
I might get a working system one day... Have been sending email's back and
forward to Jean in france... So half my gear might have to take a world trip
just to get board level work done on it...
Then if i'm lucky it's fixable...

Try pushing down on all the motherboard chips firmly with your
fingers. Often a bad contact can cause problems.
Check the backup battery on the motherboard. These are very prone to
leaking corrosive chemicals all over the motherboard, and often do so
after a period of inactivity. These chemicals can seriously damage
your motherboard, so it must be cleaned immediately and the battery
replaced if you see pools of liquid near the battery or fuzzy growths
coming out of the battery.
Where are you located? I am assuming you don't live in Melbourne?
I actually live in Taradale, in Central Victoria, so I may be closer
to you than Melbourne. I'm pretty good at fixing dead Amigas. ;-)

Done all of that to the chips that are in sockets on the hole board!

I replaced the battery withing a few days of getting the motherboard, with a

Good old sunny Ballarat, and I don't know of anyone still playing around with
Amiga's in town.
I might take you up on your offer in a couple of weeks!
- View SourceHi Guys/Girls,
I took a trip to see Doctor Dave today...
The end result is my cyberstorm Mk1 '060 Accelerator board has died (cpu is
So I'm in need of a replacement Accelerator.
Must be able to take 128Mb of ram., so either a '040 or '060 will do.
Or if you have a '060 Accelerator with faulty cpu. I'll take that and use
