That's interesting. I know Commodore had PC cases that looked just like the A4000 case. Maybe it's one of those?

I guess if it's otherwise 100% compatible to the A4000 case, then you could just...

I don't think the Rev3 A500 board has a software-switchable low pass filter. Like the A1000, it's always on. You'd need to wire up a switch and turn it on and off manually.

Corrosion doesn't have to drip from the battery- it can travel in the air around it, and even come from other things.

Plus, it depends how it was stored when the battery started leaking.

If you don't have tools or time to diagnose it, just replace the few electrolytic caps on the board and clean up anything they have leaked out. 9/10 times it will fix the problems.
