Hi Fans,

I was registerd but now I'm active and want to introduce me short. I come from Vienna/Austria and I'm a young Commodore, Amiga, Atari collector. But I also show them on meetings and repair them. I try to conserve them and make them clean and complete. I study at TU Wien (technical university). My aim is to get some more Commodore Computers and also expand some of them with HD, CD/DVD, CF card etc so its useable.

I came to my hobby because I had a C64 from the beginning of my live - cool eh? My father had one and I was born after the C64 was bought so I was impressed but later I got a PS1. But in 2003 on a flea market I got a C64G model at 3 Euros and so I played C64 again. 2004 I got my first Amiga Computer - A500 with 1084 Monitor. So I bought some things, mainly to notice: A600HD, C128D and A1200. I'm collecting Commodore since about 2 years, as I got my first A4000 in packaging at 100 Euros.

Since then, I have several Amiga models, including A500, A600, A1200, A1000, A2000, A3000, A3000T and A4000. What would be better as looking for a A4000t? :) Dont forget CDTV (with all extras as trackball, mouse, ir mouse etc, VERY COOL!) and 2 new CD32.

Also I have lot of Commodore 8 bit homecomputers, starting with VC20 to C64 models, C128 and C128D and the C16/C116/Plus4.

Also I'm looking for Ataris, sadly I never got XE series and 400/800 and some other stuff. But Atari is not as important as Commodore/Amiga to me.


Today I have A4000/040 with 16 MB RAM, DVD, 40 GB HDD (with WHD Load registered), 2 Chinon DIsk Drives, and a CF Card on the back.
Also always on my table: C128D CR and CDTV.


I also collect consoles, like Atari 2600 (very cool! -> Gravitar anyone?) up to newer ones. NES/SNES/N64, GameBoy classic/Color/Advanced, SEGA megaDrive/32x, Sega Saturn and SONY: PS1 (5 versions, one missing 5002), 2 PSone (small one), PS2 and I love hacking PSP (CFW) ;)


For selling/trading:
I'm very accurate and don't had problems. Hope you are also happy if you buy from me. In case there is a real problem, I sure will get back to you with a solution. But hope that all will be OK and some other can use the hardware that is lying here doing nothing. Therefor, my collection will get other items that I'm searching for, that I want to use.


DONT Forget: Check out my homepage. Sry, English version is in work, but some pages are ready. If there are mistakes please let me know! FULL GERMAN VERSION, but English version has transtaion on some sites. Ready are most of the Main Menu sites and also Commodore 8 bit computer, rest ist Google translation for now.
ALSO CHECK OUT THE COOL 3D MODELS I VE DONE (Adobe Reader 8.0 or higher)!

Hi,thanks.

I can solder, but SMD A4000 is new to me.

Most common problem on SMD Amigas are:

1- flaky SMD chip connections (CPU, mostly), where a simple reflux solves the issue.

2-Bad electrolytic capacitors. Replacing them is not brain surgery. Swap all of those buggers and the A600/1200/4000(T) are good to go for another 20 years.:)

As Falco sang - "Vienna Calling - Woah oh - Vienna calling, woah oh woah woah woh" :)

Welcome Stefan. I love Austria but Vienna is still on my visit list although I count Salzburg as my favourite European city
