Ladies and Gents,
I'm trying once again to resurrect my A3000 that suffered an untimely demise in 1995 (!). Following a battery leak, it doesn't boot. I get an immediate yellow screen, and 9 flashes on the power LED, then reset. Rinse, wash, repeat.

Tried reseating everything, tried new denise, paula and what few chips I have to spare from a "sold as seen" a3000 motheboard.

All no good.

It needs to live. The 3000 is the most beautiful machine commodore made, and it needs to be whole again.

Any known working components on the motherboard would be so, so much use... Happy to pay a fair price if we can work out what a fair price is nowadays!
