I'm a happy buyer of a brand new MKIII AGA. It arrived on Monday (super fast, thanks!), but I had time to mount it only yesterday.
Package was solid and not voided in any manner, but as soon as I took the board from its plastic wrap (using extreme care) I heared something rolling on my desk: it was a capacitor.
I did a quick check on the MKIII board and found from where it was. Fortunately, the capacitor seems to be intact, but not sure for its pads (picture).
I also noticed a small dent on the PCB, next to the capacitor pads (picture).
I'm a bit disappointed for the accident but mainly because i still have to wait in order to play with my A1200
No one to blame. Shit happens
It looks like I can solder the capacitor back in place, safely, but I don't want to void the warranty with this operation.
Due to these defects, the board has never been mounted nor powered. Don't know if is better/preferable/applicable a full replacement.
Ask for more pictures if needed.
