ATARI ST PSU CAPACITOR & UPGRADE INFORMATION

Work I started in 2012 and spanning now 5 years later. I have been researching and offering replacement kits and advise to people with Atari PSU's.

STFM REBUILD OVERVIEW OF BASIC CHANGES

We need to know exactly what your machine is, how you connected it up, things you have tried or tested etc. Please also note that if you ask for ...
