    Default A3000UX Preserve, Restore & Upgrade

    Hi all,

    I've finally got to the point of ensuring the preservation of my A3000UX.
    I'd better get started putting it all back together.

    Nice!

    It'll be interesting to see how the rebuild progresses.

    Hello,

    a little tip: use a solution with H2O2 for hairs. Put the front cover, head down, into a box with this solution, for an half hour, then put the front cover, side up under the sun.
    Someone has wrote that this solution is temporary: the plastic reverse to the yellow state. Anyway, you can try.

    Regards
    Stefano

    Hey vibros,

    thank you for the tip. I will look into it. You have triggered my curiosity, I will need to investigate are all Amiga plastics the same?
    If I have something that is the same plastic as the case, I could test it.

    I think no, but they behave the same with H2O2.

    Cheers

    Hi All,

    I've cleaned up the board, preserve. After previously giving away all my monitors that did work at 15khz and being donated some LCD shelf ornaments I didn't have a monitor to test with. Last week I purchased a new Acer V226HQL monitor. (I tested in on the CD32 another project TF330 (I just got it, wow!) with Riser to 23pin RGB via an original Commodore 15pin adaptor, it WORKS!)
    Back on the bench with the A3000, PSU, Daughter Board, Monitor. Red Screen.....
    This will be great if the issues end at the ROMs.....!
