Last year april I bought a aca500 plus card from someone else selling on an ebay like site (the dutch marktplaats)
It is one of the 2nd batch with big gizmo.
Until yesterday it has always worked fine on my amiga 500 plus.
Yesterday however, while everything was running (so no upside down placement) all of sudden poof, everything was bricked and the amiga was just showing a greyish screen.
When I take the aca out, my amiga works fine, but when I plug in the aca, just the grey screen.
This happens also on my regular amiga500, so the amiga's aren't the problem, they take AR mk3 or A590 without problems on the side extension port.
The aca card itself doesn't seem to do anyhing anymore. All that happens upon powering on is a quick flash of gizmo and a quick purple flash from the led simultaniously.
Th amiga's won't boot, the freezer button doesn't initate any action whatsoever nor does booting with mouse pressed.
Upon removing the card I notice that on the connector side, looking from it on top on the upper side where the three little copper holes are in the pcb, it seems to be getting quite warm/hot. Now maybe this is always so, but this is the first time I noticed.
The person I bought it from didn't provide me with the original invoice unfortunately, however, as it's from the second batch, it's from november 18 at it's oldest.
So now I'm, apart from very sad, really wondering what I can do.
Could you please help me move further from here ?
