What is Refurbished?

The Atari STFM mainboard has been professionally recapped deep cleaned using a Ultrasonic cleaner, bathed using deionised water and professional grade PCB/Flux cleaning solution. Once completed it is dried and a full diagnostic test is completed. Each unit is thoroughly inspected and tested including:

  • Full Keyboard check.
  • Floppy drive read and write test.
  • Sound checked.
  • Video checked.
  • Case and keyboard is stripped and cleaned.

We also perform the following mandatory Atari STFM fixes:

  • PSU Recapped.
  • 10K pull up resistor network to the DMA databus.
  • 1772 Pull up Resistors added.
  • STFM video circuit recapped.
  • STFM Reset fix 22uF added across C100.
  • Bus resistors replaced with 2.2k resistor arrays.


What is Ultrasonic cleaning?

Ultrasonic cleaning is a process that uses ultrasound (usually from 20–40 kHz) to agitate a fluid, this fluid is made up for this specific job which is to clean and remove any flux left over from recapping. We use deionised water (deionized depending where your from) and professional grade PCB cleaner.
