Your best bet is amibay.

They'll snatch your hand off if you offer it at it's value, I'd say £35? But you must give a price there.

The A500 I'm disposing of, is now working. I removed a small board in a compartment on the underside of the machine. and now I get a pic on the screen, Amiga work bench v1.3
I've got about 20 disks, but they all make a horrible noise when inserted into the machine, so can't test it any further.
The mist is clearing, I see a road ahead, offers, ebay, skip. To be honest I couldn't skip anything retro, even an amiga, maybe freecycle.

May have been a Ram upgrade? ( the board )

i might consider having it, the A500 I have works, I am sharing PSU between it and an A600, and I have no modulator for the 500 either..... or much software.

That board underneath is a 512k ram addon plus clock. Clock battery has leaked and killed the board. So you've only got the built in half a meg of ram.

That horrible noise is the discs, not the drive. But after you've tried them it probably needs a clean with nail polish remover.

...I tell you what, would you take a postal order? I offer £20 for everything but the duff disks. Buying to refubish, not to scrap.

I'm a good home for it, I swear! I'll hug it and squeeze it and feed it and love it and and and :lol:

Can I see some pictures?

A500s aren't worth that much tbh so it's really the condition people pay for... let us have a look!
