Bad weather for the 68K socket cpu cards

Weather conditions are warm and moisty, so both of my A600 won't cold start. The furia equipped need 30min of endless reset until it's warm enough to boot. The ACA020 one rest in black screen waiting for the winter.

Both get a pin cleansing, this time cleaned with iso first, used contact-60 after that to prevent further oxidation. It's somewhat crazy that both machines are able to run for ours with demo as load or playing pinball fantasies with vibration from the keyboard. But cold start seems to be a no go.

But wait, is there a (hardcore) solution?


At the moment i have no idea, do the A600 with cpu board technically need a soldered M68K on the pcb? Such socket with golden pins will allow better contact and it's possible to place a PLCC-DIP adapter to drive the DIP M68K on it.


Ideas? Someone every tried that out?
