    Default amiga 512k expansion problem

    Hi,
    I have this memory expansion (see pic) that works but only after 5 min (aprox.) after turning on the A500.
    It has a switch to turn the memory on/off, so if I turn it off, the Amiga works, if it's turned on the Amiga keeps rebooting without completing the self check. After 5 min the Amiga gives a guru meditation screen and upon rebooting it works fine.

    Things I've tested:
    - re seating the module
    - re solder all the components in the module

    I think the problem lies in some component in the memory module, any ideas?
    TIA

    Have you tested the switch itself with a multimeter? It could be dusty/rusty and not give 100% connection all the time?
