  • Hi,

    Today i noticed something with the CA PSU incombination with my amiga 500 plus.

    When i switch off, i can switch it on without the 6 seconds delay.

    On my a1200 this is not possible.

    From a user perspective i dont have any issue working on the machine for hours, so no lockups, or other strange things.

    Just want to check if this can happen or maybe i must have a better look at the amiga?

    My setup

    - Amiga 500 plus (removed batery, no visible damage near the battery)

    - 1 MB chipram expantion

    - ACA500+, one 32 gb CF

    - ACA1233n@40Mhz with mmu no ide speeder

    - RTC connected to ACA1233

    - Indivision ECS v2

    Best regards,


  • I just disconnected everything i dont need to give display, so only the Indi connected

    Then i have to wait again 6 seconds as it should.

    Then i connected device by device and had to wait till i connected the aca1233n

    When disconnceted the aca1233n i have to wait, when connected i can instandly turn it on without waiting

  • I also tested it here, no wait on my A1200.

  • The timer is not a "pure timer", but looks at the remaining charge on both the 5V and 12V rails, If both are completely free of charge, there is no danger in applying power again, so that's allowed then. It's designed to be a safety feature, not an annoyance feature :-)

    In other words, this can happen and doesnt say ,something is wrong (what was my main concern). Thats good to know!

    And yes, it helps me to be more patient :)
