Help needed to bring A200oHD back to life
« on: May 09, 2022, 06:37:28 am »
Hey Amiga crew,

I’m needing some assistance getting my Amiga 2000HD working. It powers up ok, but the hard drive and floppy drives don’t appear to run nor does it output any video signal. I’ve removed the battery and it didn’t appear that corrosion was too bad.

Also, my 1084S monitor power button won’t stay on. Seems like a plastic pin inside the mechanism may have perished.

I’m in Brisbane, happy to bring it to an expert to work on.

Thanks in advance.
