Paid a small fortune for it only for it to arrive 'broken'. Probably caused by damage in transit.
Whats the issue? There are lots of regular faults with X68ks, a lot of them easily fixable.
Thanks Oli but my x68000 is gone for good i think.
When i got it, switched it on, loud bang and smoke started to come out of it. There is now a large burnt patch on the motherboard.
Don't really know what happened? I think that something may have came loose in transit?
The seller is ok. I've dealt with him many times before and since.
My own stupidity really. I should have checked it out properly before switching it on.
Hindsight is a wonderful thing?
