Greetings from Edinburgh

Post by gebes » Sun Dec 09, 2018 10:35 pm

So having a various collection of retro systems , from my first computer an Acorn Electron , through to Commodore 8 and 16 bit series machines, Spectrums etc. I never had an Atari in my collection .... Until today :)

I now have an Atari ST 1040e :D

I do not know it's working condition, as all I got was the machine itself, no video cables or anything else was given.

I'd like to ask where to begin with this model please , such as

Recapping - Does the Atari ST like the Amiga benefit from being recapped ? If so , can anyone recommend who to contact that I could send this machine to who can inspect it, and advise on it's condition , what would need done to service it et

Upgrades - What are recommended upgrades for this model of Atari ?

Many thanks in advance and look forward to any replies :)

:welcomewave:

All about the ST PSU can be found here http://www.exxoshost.co.uk/atari/last/ PART 6.

Also my webshop has a lot of Atari ST stuff https://www.exxoshost.co.uk/atari/last/storenew/

I can't help with machine repairs anymore though unfortunately, but I am sure there maybe someone else who may be able to help if needs be. But the PSU recapping is pretty much mandatory these days.

Hi

My Atari 1040ste is now away being overhauled, and would like to ask where to obtain the 32mhz booster https://www.exxoshost.co.uk/atari/last/V1STE/index.htm from and how much it costs please ?

If this isn't available, any recommendations as to what boosters are available and where to purchase them from would be appreciated.

Thank you :D

Edit : Have seen the posts about this, so any booster recommendations gratefully appreciated

The V1 Was replaced by the red board V1.5 which was plug-in, but there are just too many ongoing issues that I am unlikely to be making them again.

I'm not aware of any other STE boosters, at least not any which are likely to be in production right now.
