When you receive your freshly recapped motherboard back [space_20] Once your board has been returned we strongly suggest testing the board before adding any accessories or putting it back in any shielding (if it was sent without its metal shielding) or case. Many issues arise when the board is then subjected to add-ons being added or put back together without first knowing the board was working in its bare minimum state (PSU, Video/Audio only). We offer 14 days from delivery to notify us of any issues with your recapped board of which we will send you a returns label so we can recheck our work. We do randomly take videos and photos of recapped boards to showcase our work to share on social media and other outlets. Return shipping is calculated at the checkout including £100 cover for loss or damage and we only use tracked services. [space_20] A little bit more about our Amiga recapping service and us! [space_20] We have been recapping Commodore Amiga computers since 2016 and have recapped over 400+ customer boards and 200+ of our own refurbished Amiga units, so you can rest assured that your board is in very safe hands. We use the correct tools and methods for removing old SMD and through-hole capacitors avoiding unnecessary stress being applied to the motherboard or the copper pads themselves. We offer ultrasonic PCB cleaning service where by the motherboard is bathed in a 60 °C deionised water bath combined with a PCB cleaner for 3 mins and then naturally dried for 24 hours. Results will vary depending on the condition of the board. When you receive your board back, you can rest assured your board will be in the best condition to allow you to install any upgrades you have in mind, weather that be a new TF1230, TF1260, PiStorm32-Lite or a simple 8Mb Ram card.
