COMMODORE AMIGA A1200 COMPUTER/CONSOLE IN VERY GOOD COSMETIC CONDITION (IT IS AN ORIGINAL WHITE ONE, NOT YELLOW!)
COMES WITH POWER PACK, MOUSE, AERIAL CABLES (NOT VERY GOOD)
PLEASE NOTE I HAVE POWERED UP THE COMPUTER SUCCESFULLY BUT WHEN LOADING SOFTWARE I SEEMED TO ONLY GET A BRIGHT RED OR BRIGHT YELLOW SCREEN
I PERSONALLY THINK THIS IS DUE TO A BAD AERIAL CONNECTION

Maybe it has been mounted in a boeing 747? :-)

It may be one of the very very first A1200s produced, these had a problem with the modulator. I had one of these very first ones and used it with an RGB monitor. When the modulator news broke and I checked mine, sure enough - terrible 8-O
These were the days of "put in your own HD and you void the warranty". I had and did, so I had to haggle to get the motherboard replaced rather under a third party warranty.

I was going to say that you would hope that no-one would fall for that crap but I just looked and it seemed that no-one did! It seems a shame that people who don't know better can be fooled by such scams. Not much can do, though. How pissed off would you be?!

what does the code red and yellow mean anyways? what chips are busted?

Red = ROM Error
yellow = CPU error
Green = chip RAM
Blue = custom chip error
ROMS might be loose.
