MrDBug - I am not all that skilled but the A1200 is quite easy to disassemble and reassemble. I took mine apart easily enough so I was just left with what looks a bit like a PC motherboard and then took it to a local TV repair place who charged me £10 to remove the capacitors I had identified thanks to the information someone in this (and probably other) thread(s). It was money well spent. Having a "professional" do it meant the job was done neatly and gave me peace of mind but more importantly it worked! I sold my ACA1230/28 on so I could get the ACA1231/42 which is really good but the 28 is still a great card.
