Two Commodore 1084 monitors - Christchurch Pick up

Postby manuka on Thu Feb 20, 2014 1:07 pm

Hi we've got two Commodore 1084 monitors, one a 1084 and the other a 1084s. both are non functional so either works in progress or parts machines. Must be picked up from Molten Media 205a Wordsworth Street Christchurch Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm.

First to reply gets dibs.

Yours. I was assuming you'd want them. No hurry just when ever you can get in.

Thanks for the monitors :D

I was able to make one good monitor from the two, here it is powered up
Image
(Picture shows my C64 running Dolphin DOS ,it can load 200 blocks in an incredible 5 seconds)

That monitor in the image is the one that had the power cable cut off and the Video port was filled in with glue :shock:

I used the PSU (with cable still attached) from the dead one, and dug the glue out, I saved the socket from the dead
one and I will solder that in place later as the port is still a little of a tight fit, but almost there.

The last owner had gone to some lengths to make sure no one ever powered it up again :!:

its received a second chance....
