Just how it left the factory. I haven’t cleaned this at all!
I do see one major issue that needs to be addressed quickly. I had already bought replacement capacitors before I opened the machine, and now I’m glad that I did. I don’t see any damage to the board, but this one needs to go as soon as possible before bad things happen. Of course, this is the only one that I couldn’t get at the local electronics shop, so time to order one.
Over on the left is our original C64. The right, our original Vic-20. Both currently work (after being stored for 20+ years in the attic), but are in need of a really good cleaning.
The Amiga 500 I scored last year (my first Amiga — FINALLY!). Came with 1084 monitor, external floppy, printer, and a few disks.
The Amiga 600 I picked up before Christmas of last year. Currently has an IDE to SD card adapter, 10bt ethernet in the PCMCIA port, and a serial connection to another host (my BBS) so that I can “dial” out. The other 64s were rescued at various times. I was amazed that I got the silver label 64 for $10! Everything works, again just needs a cleaning. Behind the 64 is one of Ray Carlsen’s power supplies. It’ll run a 64, 128, or Amiga (one at a time). Nice clean power instead of dealing with those ticking time bomb power supplies that came with the machine originally. Worth every penny.
I’ll get more listed as I go.
Just my first entry. Nothing fancy yet. Trying to figure this out.
