During a bout of frantic trading, I've come across a lovely boxed Inter-Sheet package for the BBC, which comes on 2 ROM chips and has a manual. I no longer have a BBC (puff of smoke, bad smell and a small fire in the engine room), but if anyone wants to trade/buy this, I'm open to offers?
There used to be a bloke called Steve in Hull who advertised his Beeb PSU repair service on Ebay, Shaun, but I haven't seen his ad in years now, so maybe he called it a day. I'll keep me eyes peeled, buddy.
coolio. i had an xbox 360 psu go bang on me a while back and when i looked inside it was a mess, not worth fixing.
the varistor was shattered and on the underside was black soot. cleaned it off a bit and the main cap legs wernt even connected to thier solder pads so just binned it and bought a new one which os made in china and not an official one. its on borrowed time as well i reckon, when i first got it it stank of overheating. opened it and the fan was facing inwards instead of out the vent! one of its fixings was broken so sorted it and its ok for now. But at least your BBC survived since the early 80s, i will be lucky to get a year out of the xbox psu!
