    Default Boo hoo my amiga is dead

    So it turns out that the folks at Commodore didn't think the amiga would still be around 25 years on and only made batteries to last 10+ years.
    The result on the 500plus models is as in the pic. The expansion on the older 500s had a battery too.

    Be cheaper to get a new mother board, but where is the fun in that.

    .

    There is a company who have done a run of new 500+ motherboards.

    I found quite alot of info so should be able to repair it.

    I'll post it up here in case it helps anybody else.

    Once its fixed i'll chuck it back in the garage and forget about it for another 20 years.

    I ordered some bits to make a start so lets see how it goes.

    could always put an emulator on the android box that, runs on hdmi too.

    when it turned it on the power light flashes 10 small and one 1 longer flash. According to the internet go to try reseating the agnus......
    when left on for 5 minutes the chips get warm to the touch except the gary, the one near the battery accident so starting there.

    Run your wife a nice hot bath, light some candles & pour some wine. Then you've at least 40 mins on the xbox plus a clean wife.

    Check it out, click on a pin or via and it does a trace on the board top and bottom shows the route it needs to go.

    Well I've got it booting up. Fixed 1 keyboard issue made another one. Drive is pretty noisy,I'll have to show that some love.

    Build a SCART cable

    Hack up a ps2 mouse, you forget how not ergonomic the amiga ones were.

    Buy and reflash a floppy disc emulator.

    The key board membrane has a fault so a few keys don't work. They are available to buy so not the end of the world. Went on a quick recky of my folks attic and found this little lot.

    Happy days.

    While I was in the attic I found some more bits for future fun when the dark nights come.
    Found a c16, a c64, a Kempston interface for a speecy, a snes,a nes and a cdtv. Found some Atari 2600 games too.
