So I decided to test out my never used ADAM and smoke billowed out smelling very much like capacitar's

 

White smoke, thick smoke.

 

I am confident that despite feeling dicked over this that I can fix this.

 

I will refrain from telling you the cost or the name of the jerk who decided to "FORGET" to tell me that the unit although being advertised as never used was also not complete despite the premium collectors cost.

I also called him directly so he did not share the asking price with EBAY yet he still...

 

Despite all of that...

 

Can someone with a really good copy of ADAM Schematics, the main board showing the caps and test points.

 

I have the originals that came with the programing book from 1984 but they are jacked.

 

So I wanted to check with the community first because a lot has happened since 1984.

This is a revision 80 board with the diagonal pinned Digital Data Drive.  The last version released from what I can tell.

TIA

Thank you, but I was referring to something better and more professional.

These are dated for the most part and I know that there are people out there that have created a Colecovision and what not on a bread board and brand new versions.

 

Someone has redrawn these and printed them out with parts list.
