Hello everyone, I just wanted to reach out and introduce myself here since I've been asked by some of the Amiga owners I have done services for about other systems as well. My Name is Paul Rezendes, and if you follow the Amiga scene you may know me fairly well. I do a lot of upgrades and repair work in my free time on classic systems, consoles, vintage home audio gear at times and several other projects. I am located in the USA in S. California.
I haven't added much to my web site about non-Amiga related items just yet, but I do them quite often by word of mouth. If you're interested in getting recaps done on any of your machines please feel free to ask. The only catch is it may take some time to complete due to the nature of my full-time job. I work as an Engineering Tech and travel quite a bit, so this is done on my spare time. I usually get recaps back fast, but repairs can take quite a bit of time to diagnose and return. Just please be understanding of that and I can take good care of you.
Here are some examples of some recent work I have done and some of the prices I charge. I've heard I am very reasonable in prices asked.
My web site is located at http://www.acill.com(Its a work in progress and I hate the Shopify service so it may close and change soon)
Typical cost for a recap on the A600 and A1200 is $58 and the A4000 is $68. I use Panasonic Hybrid caps only and this adds to the cost. I have done some for less when the owner insists on sending a cap kit from Amikit. In that case it usually is about $38.
Replacing simm sockets is $25 each which includes the new socket.
Battery circuit repairs on A4000 can run from $120 and up depending on the work involved.
CD32 recaps using hybrid caps is about $80 depending on current price of the caps. This is because of the high nimber required.
A4000T complete recap is $100 which includes the main board and three modules.
Buster replace/upgrade is $38
Socket replace is also $38 each.
That should give you a good idea. Here is also a list of recent work with some good quality pictures.
