What are these A2000 pins?

probably a dumb question, but I was curious. Thanks! I can't find anything that tells me a simple answer.

A2000, Rev 6.2 board (might as well be a 6.5 now - has full ECS)

Subject: Amiga 500 RGB problem

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Recently I have come into possession of an Amiga 500 (NTSC REV 5). At first the machine worked very well. However, just the other day I ran into a problem.

When I fired up the machine the colors were all messed up. It appeared to only have red and green colors. Then shortly after only green was present. Just to be clear, this is not the "green screen of death", I can still play games and load programs just in a completely green hue.

I have tested this on a 1084 monitor with original cable, and through an OSSC with VGA and SCART. All show the same problem.

Is there anything I can do, or a resource you all can point me to, in an attempt to remedy this? Thanks for any help.

Subject: How to "convert" a lha file to ADF

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

I frequently stumble upon questions asking how to "convert" lha to ADF. File formats are very different, so this is not precisely "conversion" - but I wrote some instructions on how to do it nonetheless.

Subject: A500+ not reading disks

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]


I have just bought an Amiga 500+ from eBay. When I turn it on, it powers up fine and shows the main screen:

photo-2021-02-14-19-17-06 — ImgBB (

I can even get to the advanced boot options:

photo-2021-02-14-19-17-07 — ImgBB (

photo-2021-02-14-19-17-06-2 — ImgBB (

But the problem is, if I put a disk in nothing happens. No noise, no light... nothing. What could be the issue? I don't want to take it apart because I might have to send it back at this rate but what could the possible causes be?

Thank you.

Subject: Did I fry my A1200?

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Hi all, hope you can shed some light on this...

I got his old a1200 off eBay. It was dusty (especially the disk drive) but the motherboard (1d4) appeared fine apart from that, no visual signs of corrosion or anything like that. Strange thing was that it wouldn't recognize my brand new A1208 memory card from Amigastore (didn't even show up in the boot menu). Also, I attached an Amigastore RGB->VGA converter plus VGA cable and tried a couple of TFTs. no luck. But there was, in fact, really nothing. They just went into sleep mode and didn't give off any message like (out of scan range) or anything. For the rest is was fine, I played a couple of games off disks and could boot the internal 3,5" HD. Used an old flat screen TV for that (composite & SCART both worked).

Should have maybe left it alone. Bit I didn't.

Opened it up again, blew most of the dust out with my 'hand grenade' blower that I use for my cameras. Did not put the RF shield back in as it was very hard to get positioned, seemed bent somehow. I installed mentioned A1208 mem card and a Cloanto prefab SD card adapter+reader with WB3.1 on it. Booted with no problems.

Then I got this external Scandex scan doubler (attached to RGB port) to attach the a1200 to my work HP display. Switched on, blew the PSU. Took mem card & SD card out. Got another A500 PSU, now there's several issues: no boot screen most of the time, disk drive doesn't work anymore, SCART cable to TV that used to work just gives a white screen, CAPS LOCK light flashes intermittently and sometimes stays on for a while.

Oh, brand new PSU is no improvement, now the power led doesn't even come on:

Al this is not encouraging. I hope someone knows something I could try.

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

I know from using my best friend Google that the A2000 case uses M4 screws, but I don't know what the lock washer types are, does anyone know what the Amiga 2000's lock washer type is?

Unfortunately due to COVID Home Depot only has curb side pickup so I cannot walk in an had a look. So I am limited to Amazon ATM.

These guys buy genuine old Amiga systems - out of curiosity - they don't know anything about them - and then they blow them up. 

And they could have just bought a MiSTer or a V4 and they would have had a *better* Amiga for less money. Honestly. 

It drives me fucking nuts. "It has to be the real thing! Not emulation!!!" 

It isn't emulation. It is the *real* fucking deal. 

Fools and their money...

Subject: OSSC vs Pi Zero HDMI out for an A500?

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

I've gone through two fully loaded A1200s over the past 6 years but ended up selling both. Partly because the whole CF flash/whdload wasn't quite the nostalgia I was looking for, partly because now that I live in the USA, getting a PAL machine sorted over here with a more modern monitor is a pain in the backside.

Instead been looking at an A500 and putting my favourite games and demos onto floppies, and then trying to figure out getting it playing nicely with a modern display, since I don't have the room for a CRT and would ideally use it on something I already have. (Did get a Dell 2001FP but the constant need to fiddle with the display drove me mad.)

So now trying to decide between the Copperdragon RGB to HDMI conversion - its comparatively inexpensive, $40 or so for the adapter and another $15 for a Pi Zero, or go with the OSSC which now that the Chinese sellers on ebay got a hold of it, is also relatively inexpensive but still double the price - $129 shipped, plus finding a 23pin to scart cable.

Has anyone who's used both got a side by side comparison?
