What is ‘recapping’ or the meaning of ‘recapped?

As the Amiga computer age the capacitors will be prone to leaking over time, remember these are 20 plus years old so it’s a good preventative measure to replace the capacitors as once they leak they will eat through the copper circuitry and cause either permanent damage or an expensive repair job.

So in short what issues could cause:

  • Sound problems
  • Random rebooting
  • Guru Errors
  • Non booting
  • Floppy fails to work & then black screen.
  • Slow switching on

To prevent this all electrolytic capacitors are replaced.
