I picked up my A4000 this morning which was generously given to me by sys64738 (http://amibay.com/member.php?u=1125) here:

http://amibay.com/showthread.php?t=7123

I can't thank you enough this is a lovely example and will be a great addition to my collection.

I've booted her up into the installed workbench and she seems to run just fine, will have to click around and try some games.

I've taken some pics, as you can see there has been some battery leakage, it dosen't look too bad but I am going to remove the battery. What is the best way to do that and to clean the surrounding area as there is some slight corrosion on the surrpunding components?

Little update - installed CWB Full to a CF card and got that to boot via the CF-IDE, works a treat but needs a soft reset on first boot. I think thats the CF-IDE adapter though as I tried the CF-IDE from my DivIDE and it was fine with that :)

Strange situation with the Video outputs, I can get a picture via the modulator using composite but I only get a black screen with RGB-Scart, tried two different leads that work on my A600/A1200 so thats weird.

Thanks for any advice,

Steve.

Ok, so I found this (http://members.iinet.net.au/%7Edavem2/overclock/batt.html) page and removed the battery as advised in the last section (since I have no soldering tools)

I've cleaned the area with some meths and its looking ok now.

Is there anything else I need to do?

You need to check out the caps on the main board for leakage and replace if required.

An easy way to check for sound faults is to play 'Worms' and listen out for the different sound effects coming out on the Left and Right channels you can have a bit of fun at the same time doing it this way :D

Set the machine up in the spare room, running great. Simple workbench, WHDload, perfect for some hideaway gaming.

Not sure why the modulator would work but RGB doesn't. Tried different TVs as well as leads?

Considered an IndyAGA or RTG graphics? Both compliment the 'high-end' systems like this! :cool:

Good call! I tried another Scart Lead and this time on the 1084 and its working fine =)

So I guess now I have to set it up properly :whistle:

Got RTG in my A1200T which will have an 060 @80mhz shortly so I might keep the A4k like it is for now and look to those options in the future.

I really wouldn't mind a Cyberstorm PPC though :D

Go Indivison A4000 scandoubler and you can fit a LCD on it, bit expensive but worth it :D

Nice catch, Steve! I was having the same kind of issues with a CF card as you did. Changed to Sandisk card and that fixed the problem. Read about it at EAB (http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=48871).

P.s. If you come to second thoughts about the RTG, I've got one in the sales section. ;)

Thanks Protek, starngely since moving the A4k upstairs its now booting straight into WB every time. Strange eh lol.

I'm sure it'll get the upgrade treatment at some point but I must get the A1200 Tower finished first :)

Oh you have no idea, its an ABSOLUTE DREAM......

My A4000D (Divvy 4000/CD32) right now is driving 51Khz @ 63Hz on a HighGFX Workbench 1024x768 SuperHighres Laced (No flicker).

[edit] @Fitzsteve. That battery has to come OFF now !. I am sure you have done it already, just had to say it :), and yes I agree with the other comment, the other source of horrid component chuck, are the Audio Capacitors. When I had mine done, the person (Loedown on EAB, here in Australia) changed *ALL* the capacitors on the motherboard to NON Polarized, which do not have a polarity (Instead of Polarized that do have a + and - legs.

Nice fit, will also have plenty of space if I use the tall Simms.

http://i294.photobucket.com/albums/mm105/fitzsteve/IMG_9621.jpg?t=1278780459

I like this shot, just ran the card for about an hour, 100% stable and dosen't get very hot. Yet to test the SCSI as the Buddha is driving my DVDRW.

http://i294.photobucket.com/albums/mm105/fitzsteve/IMG_9622.jpg?t=1278780459

Brought it downstairs for setting up, will go back up when I pick up the white LCD I just splashed out on.

http://i294.photobucket.com/albums/mm105/fitzsteve/IMG_9623.jpg?t=1278780459

Damn thats quick!

http://i294.photobucket.com/albums/mm105/fitzsteve/IMG_9625.jpg?t=1278780459

Spent ages setting up CWB OS3.9 then realised I only have 3.0 roms, doh! So back to trusty old ADV SP till I find some upgraded RomZ...

Played some Doom, thats very smooth indeed, time to try out some other games.

I picked up my LCD TV today :D

However its not 100% Amiga friendly, was disapointed to find the TV will not work properly with the Miggy's via RGB Scart, it only displays a flickery black and white picture in all modes, I also tried another scart and then moved onto Composite which had colour but such an awful picture I was about to cry :(

So I thought I'd try the VGA input via an RGB/VGA connector (not expecting anything) and was astonished to find that the VGA input will accept the native amiga screens :blink:

Its a crystal clear picture, amazing in full screen & AGA modes but there is flicker in the Interlaced modes which is a bummer since I'm using Classic Workbench ADV SP. (Soon to change to CWB OS3.9)

So I guess I have to get a flicker fixer or RTG for the workbench screens, I did see nice Picollo RTG card at Amibay but changed my mind due to the seller wanting a bank transfer, didn't want to send my cash to a zero feedback seller with no paypal protection.

For now I can use it as it is, just at High Res without Interlacing, I was going to go the Indi or RTG route at some point anyway...

Oh, almost forgot - some pics :thumbsup:

http://i294.photobucket.com/albums/mm105/fitzsteve/IMG_9690.jpg?t=1279747554

Sadly I can't show it working as the cable to the left has come away from the solder point

Although I was careful I must have knocked it when installing so once I've resoldered I'll report back...

Next time some hot glue goes on them cables to make them more secure!

Yessum, will be a wonderful machine - almost finished tweaking my new A4k, had lots of fun. I am thinking of posting a software/hardware tweaking guide (sucker for squeezing out every ounce of performance) when I am done).

Oh, and P IVs overclock nicely, remember to use the O/C feature of P96. :)

To be honest I just love happy ending stories =)


So for the techies that wanna know -

replaced the LS174 (flip-flop), the F245 (octal transceiver) and the two 47uf feedy caps =)

The patient can now use a full deck of 16MB FAST RAM without yellow-screen of memory assertion failure =D


My only regret was not having time to take hardware pr0n shots =(


Although its still in the A4000 chassis ;) (daughter was giving brian the lion a beasting =D) -- for testing purposes of course lol.

By the way guys, will this all fit?

To start going to have:

A4000 + CF-IDE on the native IDE (will do SCSI once I find a SCSI HDD)
My Apollo 4040 as the heart of this beast!
I'll have the DVDRW runing off the Buddha IDE (Top Zorro slot would help my cable routing)
I'll have the PicassoIV (is the bottom Zorro slot the one I need? (With Video slot))
I'll have the Tocatta in another Zorro Slot
I'll have the Z3 Fastlane in another Zorro Slot

Will I have enough slots for all these goodies? And should I think of some kind of extra cooling?

Also is there a particular order they should be in, i.e top to bottom?

I've got a hold of a full set of 4mb Simms for the Z3, so until I get an extra 64mb of Ram out of it until I play with SCSI.

Thanks guys - really looking forward to finishing this build. :D

Good call, I'm using the stanard PSU, can I use ATX PSU with an adapter in my A4000 or does it need modification to the chassis?

Maybe I'll leave out some of the Zorro cards for now, just start with the PicassoIV and my IDE setup, get that working first.

Cheers!

13th September 2010, 19:11
The A4000 have only four Zorro slots. You'll have to skip one board.

I recommend you to ditch the Buddha and grab a SCSI bridge for the DVD and possibly another for one large IDE HD, as it is simplier than grabbing an unknown SCSI that may not be the right type and will also require convoluted termination scheme.

Decided to takea break from the PPC and work on my A4000 since I've got the motherboard back today (Thanks again Zetr0 :thumbsup:)

Rebuilt her and took er for a test driver, everything ok so grabbed that PicassoIV, man its a damn big card! And OMG its imposible to fit, I think a good hour of cursing and swearing till I finally got er in the slot :shocked

Fired her up and nothing, nadar, black screen :(

Not sure why but to get her to boot I have to force Zorro 2 mode even though its an auto sensing card and I thought I had Zorro 3 anyway? Oh well its up and running and fully setup now, I'll never tire of the auto switching graphics, AWESOME :D

As always I took a couple of pics...

Thought I'd updated this, progress has been a little holted for two reasons. Firstly the SCSI HDD I bought arrived DOA and I'm waiting for a replacement and secondsly I need a Super Buster 11 to use the Z3 fastlane.

I might have a go at installing the Tocatta Soundcard over the weekend though. For now however she is all setup quite happy with the A600, I've been thrashing out some games on the new Arcade Fight Stick which I'm very pleased with.

She might be moving downstairs though as we have some space in the dining room and I'm thinking of getting one of those nice corner desks and setting here up on that.

Anyway for now - this is the happy couple chillin out! (Don't worry they're fully covered from the nasty light when not in use!)

Irony is now I have PCI for that puppy with a nice choice of Audio cards to choose from.

still that does look a monster in that thing - remember 16bit recording direct to drive is quite nice - and a great way of creating sound files for use with MakeCD =D

@chiark I'm running Classic Workbench OS3.9 and play CD games such as Doom/Genetic Species/Gloom and WHDLoad. Also like to mess around in workbench as the 040 @40mhz really makes its way round the OS very fast indeed.

Looking forward to having some fun with the Tocatta, I like the idea of the 16bit recording :D

There's some software bundled with the card that I want to take a look at.

First I tried to install my X-Surf that arrived earlier in the week but it just wont boot with the card inserted, probably another Buster9 issue so I've started a help thread here (http://amibay.com/showthread.php?p=108997#post108997)

I have already asked missus Fitz to get me a Buster 11 for my Birthday so will just have to wait on that...

Here is what I was trying to setup:

http://i294.photobucket.com/albums/mm105/fitzsteve/IMG_0335.jpg?t=1287239038

I've already configured the gaming adapter for my wireless network, so in theory if the X-Surf was working I should be able to get online via WiFi with the Sana2 Driver and MiamiDX, but today it wasn't meant to be, shame because I wanted this ready for the R3tr0 R3play event.

Finally tested the Tocatta though! WOW - What an amazing card, I had my little A600 playing some mod files plugged into the 'Line In' and recorded them on the Tocatta in 16bit right into the RAM (this is where 140mb+ of Ram comes in handy!) They played back perfect and it only use 20% CPU whilst recording and playback.

What a great card, look forward to more fun and games with this. I'm guessing I can use it with AHI as a souncard for games and such? Will have to play with the settings a bit and get my head round it - but I'm still staggered by what this baby can do! :cool:

Good Times.

After playing some more with the A4000 I decided to make a little video of the Tocatta recording some Mods, enjoy!

ps. I know I have no idea what I am doing LOL :D

---------- Post added at 17:12 ---------- Previous post was at 16:33 ----------

OMG I just found out you can pass the A4000 Paula RCA output straight into the Tocatta 'Line In' and the sound is played back through the Tocatta, even WHDload games :blink:

I played back some MP3's/Mods and recorded them this way as well, also wasn't expecting my 040@ 40mhz to play MP3's so well or is this the Tocatta helping out?

Awesome stuff - well pleased!

What a machine you have there Steve and very white too and for free! :blink: What a find! Nice work with the upgrades too ;)

And Genetic Species! I forgot all about that game, its in my collection along with Naplam, Earth 2140 with mission pack, Nemac IV, Quake with Malice, ADoom and Foundation, just to mention a few of the late games. Have not played any of these since my 4K decided it needed a "rest".

Now after reading your thread, I miss mine even more :(

Anyways, nice Steve, very nice :D

Hopefully you'll have yours up and running again soon.

Its been a while on this one! But my A4000 is back up and running :D

I got my new daughter board today and as soon as I re-built the PicassoIV was working fine.

So I tried with the X-Surf again and she still wont take it, flashing power light.

And after removing the X-Surf the Picasso stopped working again (the scan doubler) :blink:

The problem seems to be that the X-Surf is too big and pushes the daughter board out of line, I think this may have done lasting damage to my old daughter board. As soon as I realized the problem the X-Surf was out and I re-built the machine again.

Thankfully the PicassoIV is working fine again, and I really hope it stays that way now :whistle:

Screws are back on and I'm not opening the machine again unless I really have to!

Screws I`ve heard of them things hehehehe
think only one PC here has case screws one nearly every machine has easy access, that is no case screws :)

if it is pushing it out a bit, try taking the plastic runner of the back see if that gives it a little bit more room,
If you think that card is over sized the gvp 040 for the a1500 deff is !!

Wow, has it really been that long since this project had an update :oops:

Don't worry this A4000 is still much loved :thumbsup:

I recently bought her a little upgrade:

http://i294.photobucket.com/albums/mm105/fitzsteve/IMG_1323.jpg

Finally got round to installing this little fella last night and tested this morning as I had the wrong files. I used the Siron stack first but realised it didn't support USB Mass Storage which was one of the main reasons I wanted simple USB on this A4000, the lack of a PCMCIA makes file transfers a bit of a PITA and I hate burning CD's etc... Also I'll get the benefit of USB Networking when I find a suitable adapter.

Well here she is, the card was a little too long so didn't fit at first - I had to take out the screws holding the backplane in place, but its secure enough.

http://i294.photobucket.com/albums/mm105/fitzsteve/IMG_1438.jpg

And my little USB Flash Disk plugged in :)

http://i294.photobucket.com/albums/mm105/fitzsteve/IMG_1441.jpg

And some shots of it up and running :cool:

http://i294.photobucket.com/albums/mm105/fitzsteve/IMG_1439.jpg

I get this set address failed error on first boot - but a restart fixes that, weird eh?

http://i294.photobucket.com/albums/mm105/fitzsteve/IMG_1440.jpg

There we go USB working and Flash Disk detected :D

He he, it took me a while to find it in your pic!

Yes I was just thinking whilst upstairs an extension cable would be an idea from SCSI-IDE Device to CDROM, then I can mount the device elsewhere.

The copy was nice and quick, she's booting up fine off the SCSI - short delay for the IDE check but thats all.

Need to mess with some settings, getting 4.4mb/sec which is over 2x the native IDE but I'm sure I can get over 5mb/sec :ninja:

You can also order whatever extension/male-female/40-44pin from AmigaKit!
You can get a lot better results from SCSI with tinkering a bit the SCSI config of Cyberstorm. I can send ya some screenshots of how to mess with them a bit.
I get 9.6mb/s on my BPPC and 16GB CF (Transcend 133x) mounted on an ACard.

Probably, but why not just buy a known-working-with-A4000s one from Amigakit? That's what I did. It'll probably work out cheaper, too. :D

TheCorfiot
14th June 2011, 16:51
Should be OK Steve, I would recomend just using a very short 40 pin cable connected to a CF card set as non-bootable which will also give you some extra backup storage if needed

TC ;)

PS - As Andy says I think the Amigakit ones are better value, on the other hand ask zetr0 to modify a 40 pin socket for you, it's only a diode between 2 pins.

@TC I did think of that but I'm running out of spare CF's with all these Amiga's :Doh:

I tried my 256mb Radeon in AmigaFun's A1200 and it didn't work in his either (he has the Mediator 1200TX) so I guess the card is the problem :(

I'm waiting for my new SATA card to be delivered so will update on that when it arrives. Since I returned the Saphire Radeon to AmigaFun now I'll be sticking with the Voodoo for now :roll:

Hi,

The HDD is connected to the SCSI-IDE bridge, I currently have no jumpers set (they were loose and fell off :o) It seems to make no difference lol! I did have ID1 and SCSI2) jumpers set before.

I've used it before with CF cards via Blizzard PPC SCSI so it should work for you but IIRC one CF adapter didn't work so I had to try another.

Hi!

Glad you've enjoyed the posts, it makes it all worth while when you get this sort of feedback :thumbsup:

Truth is the Wife 'tolerates' it :shhh:

When I first got into Amiga's I sold all my retr0 gaming stuff to fund it and since then I've kind of been trading up so the monthly outlay hasn't been too bad!

As you probably guessed I don't get out too much with the 3Dimensional people and I don't smoke/gamble/etc so this is my main hobby.

Anyway I hope to keep you all included in my Amiga journey although its going to slow down a lot now unless I find a job soon! :coffee:

I have IDE-SCSI Bridges in all my setups and works great with one exception.

Under OS 4.x... CF-IDE Adapter+IDE-SCSI cannot works fine on my A4K's PPC...

As you know, I have....

SCSI ID1 => CF's to boot with different 3.x

SCSI ID2 => HDD to Boot under 4.0 (still fighting with 4.1 Classic and my FastATA MK-V :()

Not tested my new BPPC 603+ but I think must be the same.....

Just a very little update, I got some new toys this week that I have been playing with, useful to all my USB setups :)

I got an ICY Box external HDD enclosure which has a nice new 20gb ATA HDD inside, of course its also perfect for prepping up disks in WinUAE.

I've set this one up with a couple of SFS partitions to share between my Amiga's, on my Deneb its pulling 5.7mb/sec which I thought was pretty impressive :cool:

In the pics below its on the Thylacine in this A4000 so only USB1.1, I got a little Powered USB1.1 Hub of eBay for peanuts and its working a treat plus ideal as the Thylacine only has 1 USB port...

At some point I'd like a Deneb for this A4000 too :D

Hi!

I got a nice addition to this project to share with ya'll!

Its a CDRW with built in USB Card reader :)

http://i294.photobucket.com/albums/mm105/fitzsteve/IMAG0081.jpg

Its quite a large unit, but I managed to fit it inside by raising the HDD to the upper part of the bracket (else I couldn't push the drive all the way into the bay)

http://i294.photobucket.com/albums/mm105/fitzsteve/IMAG0079.jpg

As you can see, still some room for the 060 to breath :D

http://i294.photobucket.com/albums/mm105/fitzsteve/IMAG0080.jpg

The USB connector fits a 5pin header and will be ideal if I get a Deneb for this machine, for now I used a converter to standard USB - A connector and ran the cable outside to my Hub as the Thylacine has no internal headers.

Hey peeps,

Got some updates to this project! Been having a bit of a switch around since getting the A4000T (sadly the Elbox Tower has to go) so using some of the bits here...

First change is I swapped out the PicassoIV for my CV64/3D, since I have a PicassoIV in my A4000T I decided to take a different route with this project for now, of course if I ever find a CVPPC for the Tower the Picasso might find its way back here :whistle:

Since I have lots of Ram in the A4000T I decided to use the Fastlane Z3 in this project, and since this is Buster 9 I'm not limited to 1 DMA master I can have the Fastlane Z3 and Deneb running in DMA mode!

Also happy to see no conflict with the CSMkII/SCSI or CV64/3D which can be a known issue in this configuration!

I also decided to switch the CDROM for a shorter DVD drive and also replaced the tall HD Floppy with a new FDD and USB Reader, plus custom adapters via USB2 Hub going into the Deneb.

As you can see everything is working! (Not expected on the first attempt but it did!)
