Please check the list of Amiga rework services offered below.

Recapping Amiga boards is a MUST, and not an option. It's seen on many boards that leaking capacitors have damaged the PCB copper tracks (check pictures below), causing difficult and expensive repairs. It's not a question of whether the capacitors are functioning or not, recapping is a PREVENTIVE measure. Electrolyte is a translucent liquid and can't be spotted (the damage is under the capacitor - hidden), until it's too late. It can damage the IDE port, tracks, surrounding components, especially in the audio area. The cost to recap is MUCH lower than the cost of repairs. The endangered species are: A3640 CPU cards, A4000D, A4000T and its' port modules, A1200, CD32 and A600. Old barrel batteries should be removed from any models ASAP.

There are several places that offer recap services, BUT what I guarantee is that you get absolutely correct, professional quality, IPC production level work. I've seen many recap jobs where connectors, pads and components are burned or badly soldered, this does NOT happen with boards I work on. I use professional tools and supplies, and brand capacitors (Panasonic, Nippon Chemicon, Rubycon etc)
