Hardware News   Hardware News : USA - A4000 repairs, RGB video adapters, Video Toasters and Flyers
   posted by logicalheart on 30-Nov-2007 19:20:50 (4593 reads)
The company "Video Lab" offers the following services:

Amiga 4000 motherboard repair.
(audio repair, battery replacement, and more)

Sales of used Video Toaster 4000, and Flyer.
Each unit costs between $100 to $300 depending on condition.

New custom made RGB encoders $125.
This connects to the Amiga's RGB port and encodes to 3-way RGB component output. This is handy for many new HD monitors and televisions with component inputs.

Video Lab - Ed Jeffries
6909 Johnson Dr.

Mission, KS. 66202
Tel: 913-403-0045

I am posting this for Ed Jeffries who does not have an Internet connection. I've sent him motherboards for repair, and always get good service. He also used to do repairs for Software Hut.

How long to get one of the RGB encoders? Are they available now?

There are 2 RGB encoders in stock. Additional quantities will take a few weeks for parts to arrive.

I want to be clear that these do not output HD signals (of course), they encode the existing 15-khz signal to work on the newer televisions which have the RGB component input. It certainly is a great way to preserve an RGB signal instead of going to composite. I've not seen them in action, but will be buying one myself sometime to try out. - Lars

Any pricing info estimates? I'd love to get my 4000 back up and running again. It won't boot, all I get is a black screen. Except when I pull the Chip RAM, then I occasionally get a 'green' screen... Well I think it was green. It's been a while since I futzed with it.

Please let us know how well it works. I might be interested in on eof them for connecting to my Panasonic plasma TV.

I have 2 A4000 motherboards that were repaired by him. Both had sound output repaired and one had the clock replaced. He has the original Commodore Amiga diagnostic hardware and has reasonable repair pricing. Back when I had my mobos repaired he had a number of refurbished A3000 boards, but that was several years ago.

@Xenic Thanks for the information about your experience.

@ShadesOfGrey
The motherboard repair costs vary from $50 to $200 plus shipping costs.
I sent him a motherboard before thatt cost around $100 to repair.
I sent another one this week and he fixed a simple audio chip for $50.
When it's shipped back to me, it's going into an Elbox tower with CyperPPC and OS4.
Yay! - Lars

But the Amiga RGB port IS 3-way RGB component output. Has screens suddenly started coming with sync-on-green again, or is it really YPrPb we're talking about here?

Using "voltage" instead of "potential", which leads to inventing new words like "amperage" instead of "current" (I, measured in A) or possible "charge" (amperehours, Ah or Coulomb, C). Sometimes I don't even know what people mean.

$125 is a bit darn steep, but by RGB do you mean component? as in those Red, Green and Blue connectors on the back of DVD players and TV's?


if so this is awesome! I want one! you can get HD through the Amiga, just put the Amiga in
Superhires mode (1440 x 480) and put the TV in widescreen mode.

this is with AGA
