Hi,

I am located in Sydney Australia, and am willing to provide repair services to residents of Australia only.

Background: Professional electronics design engineer with years of experience designing, assembling, re-working and repairing high-value (non-consumer) electronics. Long term Amiga user!

All work will be performed using professional grade equipment and high-quality components sourced from top-tier suppliers. This is not a hobbyist operation.

I offer the following services, but if you need something not listed please ask:

- Capacitor replacement on any Amiga (CD32/A600/A1200/A4000 etc), Commodore machine or peripheral

- Repair of Amiga or Commodore machines due to electronic failure or battery leakage (memory, logic chips, audio circuit, CD32 power switch rebuild)

- Repair of motherboards due to damaged tracks

- Removal or replacement of damaged connectors such as the CD32 CD-ROM connector or the A600/A1200/A4000 IDE connector

- EPROM/GAL programming service for any type of GAL, EPROM or other DIP package programmable device used in an Amiga, Commodore machine or peripheral (A3000 GALs, A2091 ROMs, etc)

- Assembly of TF330 and other Amiga DIY kits (PCB and parts may need to be supplied)

My repair services are offered to help Australian Commodore/Amiga users and will be offered at my discretion only and subject to my terms and conditions. I do not offer free technical support via e-mail unless I have previously performed a paid repair for you.

If you live in Sydney you are welcome to attend a meeting of the Sydney Amiga User Group (SAUG) where you can receive free in-person technical support and advice from our members. Note: Entry fees to cover our room hire costs apply.

Please see http://saug.org.au for more information.

That's true, I meant to say that it won't work for non-Australian VPN's .

Due to the Australian government's policy on metadata collection from Australian internet providers, I don't know if an Australian based VPN can be considered to offer the "privacy" that people usually associate with a commercial VPN service..!

Thumbs up

I would like to give two thumbs up to rvctech for repairing my CD32. This was not just a recap but involved troubleshooting and replacing a few faulty ICs with like for like components, resolving tracks that perished thanks to electrolytic goop as well as removing a frankenstein toggle switch some clown decided should be located on the front of the unit after soldering it in with a blow torch with the kind of switch the CD32 was born with back in the proper spot.

Communications were clear and friendly, I found the pricing very reasonable and the service outstanding. Definitely recommend you reach out to him if you are located in Australia and need some Amiga work.


I most likely see if he will service my A600 nce I pry it back off my brother.

I recently purchased an Amiga 2500 from the states. Unfortunately it has some bad traces because of the dreaded Varta battery leakage. I removed the 68000 processor socket but there are at least 3 to 4 via's that need replaced. Any suggestions?

First of all, make sure you clean the motherboard with isopropyl alcohol.
If the vias are completely damaged, the only way is to re-establish the missing connections by welding some AWG28 or AWG30 wire from one side to the other of the motherboard.

Hi Keith,

It is possible to directly repair damaged vias and tracks (not using wires), however if you have no prior experience doing this, I would suggest that you check whether a local repairer can do this for you.
