Wanted: A4000 mainboard

Last week my 4000 seems to have finally died
All I get from her now is yellow, green and black screens..
I've been having trouble with this system for quite some time and even the picassoIV I spent a fortune on a few months ago wasnt running 100%..

UPDATE:
I'm just after a working mainboard now.
Managed to get hold of a PSU and HD floppy locally.

Hope someone has one

Update II:

Due to a stroke of luck I've managed to aquire another rev B mainboard, with a buster 11 as an added bonus

I cancelled the HD drive order though as it had a modified faceplate..

If anyone has a working HD drive with it's faceplate I'd love to hear from you. Thanks

Yep thats the one.. apparently all thats missing is the chip right next to the battery, which I have on my old board.
Fingers crossed that this is the only problem..

Yers it doesnt look like I'll have much luck getting this board running..
Once it comes in the mail I can chop n change a few things like the buster, memory and kickstart chips.. I guess there's a slim chance one of these could be a problem with mine.

Chain: Sure mate. I'll be in contact once I know whats going on.

Finally the dead board arrived.

I tried the memory and buster11 in my board and it changed nothing.

HOWEVER.. I plugged the dead board up and to my surprise it's doing the same thing as mine - green screens etc... I know for a fact the dead board was at least passing these startup tests..

This only leaves the power supply!! At least I'm getting somewhere..
I'll start a new thread for my new request..

Chain: I'm going to hold onto the dead board for now incase I need it myself. I'll let you know if I'm through with it.

Why dont you hack up an AT PSU for testing???

Got a spare dead C= or Amiga PSU?? I axed up an old Commodore PC10 and the PSU plug was identical to an A4000D plug.
