Amiga Hardware Issues and discussion / Re: Amiga 4000 power supply
« Last post by darksun9210 on October 21, 2019, 10:46:23 AM »
Sure thing. Sorry i didn't consider this to be picture worthy, and the PSU hasn't arrived yet so still running the PC-to-A4k umbilical for power at the moment - so it's not pretty.

What i have got, and it's actually a bit of an excellent bonus, is the original PSU was modded by Motorollin' years ago.
so i still have the original PSU case, although it's been cut and finished into more of an open box frame, with a flex-atx PSU fitted inside, and a mesh grill on the back with the original PSU power plug still in place to feed whatever is fitted inside.

this makes cable routing a lot easier, and maintains the hard disk mount-plate screw holes.
also lends more structural strength to the back plate supporting the top case of the machine as a whole.

the one thing i AM going to add, though, and i didn't really think about it when all i had in here was an 030, is either a 92, 100 or 120mm fan on the back blowing out the mesh. as the A4K's only source of airflow is, or was, the PSU fan. I'd like to be able to put the lid back on at some point, even though i know the most normal state for most running amigas is with the lid off. ;D

anyway. will post up some shots as and when.  :)

oh yeah, amigakit basicly "next-day"'d the A4k-ATX adaptor over to me so shout out to those guys  8)

That's like saying Amiga - Who in this day and age needs that? :)

I agree - I use serial port literally all the time - as that's where the console for the raspberry pi is :)

Amiga Hardware Issues and discussion / Re: A1200 Composite video out dead?

Yes it was recently recapped.  I'm not sure I've ever tried the composite video even when it was new.

It 'maybe' the 1000uf cap thats the issue, or it missing the signal from the video circuit, im going to ask, has it been recapped?? if not it maybe down th leaking caps thats eaten through a trace...

Amiga Hardware Issues and discussion / A1200 Composite video out dead?
« Last post by rljacob on October 20, 2019, 08:39:50 PM »
Hello,

I've tried to hook up the composite video out to a couple of monitors (A 1084S and a Vizio TV/monitor) and there is no signal with either one.  RGB out works fine.   Is there some way to tell for sure that the output is dead or alive?  Use a multimeter?

Thanks,
Rob

What did it take to fit the new power supply?  Anything special?  Pictures would be nice. I think my A4000 will be needing one soon...

I too have quite a few IComp items, most of it old stuff, all generations of catweasel, as well as Indy AGA, various IDE boards, clockports adapters, ACA1221, memory expansions for A600 etc. I have been lucky and nothing broken. Software support for the Indy has not been too impressive though. But I just don’t see why I would want to buy another IComp product, as other offers are now much more appealing. And for support, I’m talking about his general reputation, anecdotes go both ways, but increasingly in the wrong direction.
