Amiga CDTV Monitor [2]

Well, the story ends here for the moment. I tried to swap the contents of the two monitors I had. This seemed successful but in the end, when I wanted to close the back, it didn't fit. The new motherboard is 10 mm shorter and 5 mm wider than the old motherboard. So the sub-D connector cannot reach the connector on the motherboard and I cannot use this monitor. Will try to get a beige 1084S-D2 monitor and try again.

Amiga CDTV Monitor [1]

I have a complete setup of an Amiga CDTV with keyboard, diskdrive, mouse and monitor, all in black color. When I switched the set and monitor on to test the newly acquired keyboard I heard a big bang. And there was no picture on the display. I fear it has some part blown up so I opened her up and I found the reason of the big bang:

An electrolytic capacitor has exploded.

As this monitor didn't produce a nice picture I will try to swap the inner parts with a beige monitor of (almost) the same type.

To be continued.
