Apparently this was refurbished and recapped. What did they use? A MIG welder?


Holy cow... that looks like something I would produce at home!

LOL yeah same. Don't know how that could be considered "refurbished". A refurbishment would mean having to correct that awful work.

Ouch, make me sad that people don't respect the motherboards of Amigas and repair them profesionally instead... As the thread says, Amiga prices are only going up from here on...

$500 for "rare" A3000 motherboard that's missing RAM, Buster, Agnus and maybe the SCSI chips.  Seriously?

The 3000T motherboard... might be worth it. ;) Although the guy does say he's taking offers.

Not crazy, but it's amazing to me that people still manage to find stocks of NOS AGA chips for sale.

Not to mention the boards are battery damaged.  The Agnus alone is next to impossible to find for the A3000.  The guy went to a storage unit auction and found those.  Then went to the Amiga facebook group, asked for a "valuation" since he "knows nothing about the amiga" and got his head all filled with what the boards are "worth" by people there.  The chips being removed is enough to make anyone think the boards are dead and were just kept after the chips were scavenged for another system.


EDIT:  Looks like some fool spent $995 on the 3000T motherboard.

I made 3 offers on this, and he finally countered. eBay doesn't show you what the final price was - we settled on $500.

It took me a few days but I managed to get it to work and as a result now have a fully functioning 3000T again - worth every penny. :)

The damage report: it had two broken traces where the battery was (D9, D15 signals to the ROM), two blown fuses on the +5 outputs for the joystick and DB23, was missing a Paula and all zip ram which I filled in, Denise was inserted incorrectly, missing the SCSI controller chip. It also had the 8375 Agnus which doesn't allow the pal/ntsc jumper so I replaced that too. I also gave it 3.1 ROMs.

Well I hope my 4000T motherboards are worth more than that :).

The 3000T is probably more rare.  Anyone have the production numbers handy?
