New here, but old Amiga fan with a 4000 to fix.
« on: May 02, 2016, 12:38:06 PM »
Hi all. 40 something old Norwegian here. Got my start with an Amiga 500 way back when. I think maybe 1988. That soon grew with 512kb extra RAM and an extra 3 1/2 inch floppy drive. Which I still got.

Come late 1992, I sold it to free up some cash to get the new A4000/040 in early 93. That machine served me well for many years. It got close to 2000 before I went ahead and bought a PC. Still used the Amiga on occasion, but its' use dwindled.

Now it (and the accompanying CBM 1942 14" CRT) have been sitting powered off for at least 13-14 years. Opened up the Amiga the other day, and discovered it have had a battery-leak. Doh! So it won't be powered up quite yet.

I will restore it though. So I figured I'd register here to tell the tale of how the restoration is going. Perhaps I'll add a few bells and whistles to it along the way. I'm sure I'll get a CF reader for it at least.

Anyway, I am awaiting a few tools and parts. Once those are in house, I'll get to writing up the situation report of the Amigas' current state, and what I intend to do to it. In a nice step by step fashion.

I am no stranger to the soldering iron, besides it'll be fun :)
