Greetings! From Charlotte, NC USA

Hi.
I have a LOT of amigas... none of them working as they should.

It’s been quite a while since I was using them, and the old original amigas (1000’s) are a tad grungy.
My 2000 is fighting for life from the farts leakage
My 3, yes 3 1200’s are without workbench disks, and the drives are missing key files to get them working as they should.

I have the new 3.1.4 os, but as yet haven't been able to setu a pin SD card to get me running.

I am owner of an HVAC/ELECTRICIAN company, currently without employees... and an old computer nerd...

Welcome!


I have been working on my two A1200's, A2000, A2500, A500 for a while since I brought them back out. The first thing for the A2000 is cut out the old motherboard battery so it doesn't get worse. I just put 3.1.4 ROMS in my one A1200 and installed Amiga Dos 3.1.4

I have a lot to do.

Welcome, Vstech! I'm up in Greensboro myself, and there are a handful more of us in NC who I've found across social media. I'm not particularly skilled in repair myself, but feel free to drop me a line if you ever need a comrade

Glad to have another fellow Amigian. I pulled out my A500 and A1200 and are trying to work them back to health hopefully.
