I would like to offer the following services to members of the USA "retro" community. I'm not discriminating against other countries in any way, but, shipping outside of the USA has gotten to be prohibitively expensive, even using the US postal service...

Capacitor replacement on SMD Amigas
Capacitor replacement on THT Amigas
Removal of the onboard RF modulator of the A1200 and A600 (to make space for a VGA/HDMI port install, such as for the Indivision, in this spot).
Recap of C64, SNES, NES (including those inside the RF box), Colecovision, PSX, original Xbox systems.
Colecovision composite video mod (instead of having to use the RF output).
Modchip installs on classic systems, xbox 128mb RAM upgrades, xbox TSOP flashing, xbox HDMI mod install, PSIO switchboard installation on original Playstations
NESRGB installs on the NES/FAMICOM
Replacement of broken ports and pins
Replacement of broken sockets (IC, SIMM, etc)
Reflow of cracked solder joints
A500 RAM upgrades to the Rev 6 motherboard (giving you get 1mb chip RAM)
Assembling any of the various small DIY projects created and sold by other hobbyists (like Amiga RAM expansions, accelerator cards, etc.) - you provide them and I'll solder them.
In summary, I do various upgrades and obvious, minor repairs. I simply don't have the time to sit down and diagnose already non-working hardware.

All repairs conducted at an ESD safe work station, using the proper equipment and materials. I am a dentist by profession, and work on everything with a steady hand, and under high magnification. This is a hobby for me, that I do in my limited spare time, so it might take me a week before I can get started on your hardware, and, probably longer if I have to order parts. Drop me a line here if I can help you out with any of these services.

Always good to hear of another source in the US for this type of work.

Whereabouts are you located exactly?

I live about 50 miles north of New Orleans, Louisiana, in a town called Lacombe.

I will vouch for him here. I have been helping him out and teaching him techniques in soldering and repairs. He has become quite the skilled tech now.
