Shame, as it's starting to get way beyond our expectations, already we have a person who has booked a table for the bring and buy. Amongst his stuff to sell is a fully working towered PPC A1200 Amiga machine. Very Nice indeed. Bet he has his hands bitten off for that.

Sounds like a dry joint somewhere. Have you looked underneath?

We won't be fixing A1200's I don't think, but, ask around at http://www.amigaworld.net someone may meet you there and have a look at it for you. We are having an Amiga Medic area, you could try your luck there. Or alternatively, I am sure someone will have A1200's for sale (second hand) for little money in our bring and buy area.

Addition:-

I know of one user, Robert17 who has an A1200 to give away to anyone who promises to give it a good home, use it, and not sell it on at profit. He will be doing so at the show.

I have a Blizzard 1230-mkIV (I think) that died on me......which is why I don't use the Amiga nowadays (what with OS3.9 I can't start it properly without the FastRAM).

Would people there be willing to have a look at it? I'm sure it's just some smaller stuff needed to fix it
