Entry 14th August 2018: Post 01: Better Days

Better Days - Amiga 2000
So I dusted myself down after yesterdays failures and kicked off
the blues and set about putting matters right. First up the Amiga
2000 with the GVP 030 that just refused to do anything yesterday.

Amiga 2000 030

Case off.

Record the cable and wire connectors.

And this time I need to take the whole
computer apart and check things out.

Record the ribbon connections.

Remove the 030.

Lift the cradle clear of the motherboard.


What do we have here?

Interesting !!

Answers on a postcard.

The board was so so dusty.

Strange wiring to the controller port.

Very clean battery removal.

I cleaned the motherboard, reseated what
I could and made better connection with
the stirrup on the GARY chip.

Dusted off the 030. Reseated and checked
the ribbon connector.

All back together and I get a green screen.

Very promising. CPU failure.

Pulled the card and booted off the floppy.

No problems with the motherboard. So I
cleaned the connector and reseated the
GVP 030 card firmly.

And like magic she sprang back into life.

Such a welcome sight.

All working with no issue.

Even Clara is back to her old self.

So there you go..
