Default Re: My 500+ Project

Damn that is a lot of acid damage to the mobo... its crawled its way to many IC and sockets so sad to see a A500+ in this condition.

The Gary chip should be okay, the socket might clean up well without needing to replace. A thin stiff brush and alcohol to clean away all the mess. The resisters on the right hand side of the removed battery look bad, maybe if you going to resolder a Gary socket you should replace these as well.

Best of luck! Hope you can revive this poor Miggy

Completely useless? I can always be used as a bad example
