I just unpacked an A1200 today, and after pulling it apart, cleaning it, re-trimming the metal shroud since it was hacked badly by whoever modified it previously, reseating the AGA Indivision board, and re-assembling with the hodge-podge of screws with three missing, I booted it up to test to make sure it was working. All seems well there so far.
Then I pulled apart my ACA500+ case and removed the ACA1233n from it and carefully seated it into the A1200. It would not boot up at this point. After that Indivision power on banner it did nothing.
After some double checking I was beginning to suspect that I have an only partially working A1200. So I decided to put the ACA500+ and 1233n back together in their case for safe keeping. However, the 1233n wasn't lining up with the bolt hole in the case. After some inspection I discovered that the female card slot connector appears to have had an internal failure of some kind, which is rather odd as I've never seen a pin fold up like this inside of one of these connectors.
Now, the question is: do I ship this back to Individual for a repair job, or can I simply get a replacement connector shipped to me. I'm comfortable with desoldering and soldering on a replacement and have the tooling to do so. Whichever works based upon the warranty of the card.
