A1200 Brightness

Hi folks,

I noticed randomly yesterday when running both my 'original' A1200 and Amiga Technologies at the same time that the video output on the 'old' machine is much darker. I'd say as much as 50% (subjectively). Both running on identical setup.

Does anyone know whether this is by design? Or could it be something like capacitors creaking?

Might have to get it seen to if its ageing :-)

Yep, could well be a difference in capacitors since their capacitance changes over time, even before they start leaking. If they haven't been changed before, do it as soon as you can!

There could be some slight design variations between the motherboards that could also explain the darkness, but it shouldn't be that big a difference.
