Untested Amiga 4000 - to sell or not to sell?

Hi,

I need some expert advice. I've got some Amiga 4000 stuff and was wondering if it was worth enough to put on eBay.

My question is: Sell or trash? Should I sell it as a whole or should I sell the items seperately? how much would you pay for the whole system, or individual parts seperately, considering the above below?

The tricky thing is, the items have not all been 100% tested. In short, because I didn't get a good image with (TV) monitor I can't guarantee it works.

Here is a list of the stuff:
-Amiga 4000/040 with cables
-Keyboard
-Prisma Frame Machine card with Electronic Design PAL genlock box and cables
-1084S monitor

Let me explain why the items are untested. I found this box at my old work, a large commercial broadcasting cooperation in Belgium. They had used it for an old TV quizshow. When the show was over, the Amiga and its accesories ended up in a box. I found the box and asked if they were using it, they said I could have it. In the technicians lab they normally had the policy that if something could not be fixed, it would end up in the trash. Unless ofcourse they could use parts of it or think that one day someone could fix it. Nobody could tell me for sure, but they said it should still be working, they just have more modern hardware nowadays to do the frame grabbing / digitising stuff.

I hooked up the system but never really got far, because the monitor was not displaying properly. Perhaps a sync problem in the monitor or the graphics card. I made a SCART cable for the amiga, but when I hooked it up to a working TV monitor the image was skew (probably because the Amiga uses a different H-sync and V-sync frequency). However, I did manage to distinguish some Workbench image and get the keyboard to move the mouse and reset the Amiga. It sounded fine and looked like it was handled well, almost like new. So I got a good feeling that everything should work properly and took it home with me.

After keeping the box for several years know, I've decided that I'll never really try to fix it again. All I wanted is to run some games. I don't want to spend time or money fixing it. And if I want to run games, I'll use an emulator. It is time to either sell or trash the lot.

I'll post some pictures up soon sometime if your interested.

Let the market decide.

As long as you are up front in the auction, People will decide if they want it or not.

My 5c is DON'T TRASH IT, put it on ebay
