After buying a fully working Commodore Amiga 600 on Friday evening, I received this free Amiga 600 motherboard and bottom half case from the same person today. Unfortunately, it's not working, black screen problem. I think it needs the caps replacing. Future project, maybe?

Thanks for your reply, commandeur. That sounds like a really good idea. I suppose it's better to be safe than sorry. I'm not very good with a soldering iron, so I will send both machines off to a repair shop to be recapped. Thanks again.

To save myself some money, I've decided to keep the working Amiga 600 and get it professionally recapped and sell the non-working board (pictured above) on eBay @ www.ebay.co.uk/itm/392942675767 - This will hopefully help me raise some funds towards the recapping of the working one.
