FOR SALE: Repairable Mega STE motherboard

Post by mikro » Sun May 17, 2020 8:59 pm

Hi guys, would be someone interested?

It's my oldest MegaSTE, honestly I don't remember what happened to it, just one day around 2000 I'd put it into box and never opened again. It doesn't boot (just white screen) but it does boot into diagnostic cartridge -- keyboard works, display works, ROM reads OK, ... so there's a good chance you can repair it. Blitter tests hang so this could be a good hint where to start. SCSI adaptor included, RAM (4 MB) included, IF I find the original TOS 2.05 GER ROMs, I will include them too. NOT included: PSU, floppy drive, case, keyboard. Actually, if you desperately want keyboard, I can offer you some (I have spare both MegaST and MegaSTE ones).

Price: 75 EUR + shipping, if you are someone contributing to the scene, I'll let it just for the shipping.

Located in Slovakia, Europe.

Our postal web isn't exactly super helpful but from what I could read it should be about 25 EUR.

I posted it also on FB (as the first thing) so that's where the buyer comes from. Initially, nobody reacted so I posted it here because I thought only hardware geeks are going to be interested. My mistake!

But I tried to be fair - I compared reply times from all parties, the guy on FB really did reply first.

@mikro It's ok - while it would be nice to get a MSTE (and that was offered for a very good price) I'm not wanting to cause any ill feeling or anything.

Maybe it would have helped to mention that it was listed elsewhere as well (to avoid any misunderstandings). These things are always much clearer with hindsight! ;)

Maybe next time...

@Steve Thanks for the moral support! :thumbup:

exxos even added a smilie for just these cases... :awwww:
:lol:
