M-Tec AT 500 Megabody - Cracked Solder Joint
Previous Image | Next Image
Description: This is a close up of IC9 on my Megabody IDE controller. I purchased this card as working, but work it did not. Here's the culprit - a cracked solder joint on the front right leg. If you notice, you'll see that the whole IC slants down to this corner and there is damage to the IC casing on the same corner. With the other marks on the board visible, it can be seen that the previous owner was quite heavy handed when removing the CPU. Also note the melted plastic to the right of this IC. Had someone re-soldered it before me?
After repair, it is now working. I am going to hopefully put together a nice retro A500 with Kickstart 1.3. I am currently testing other components for the build.
