Commodore Amiga A570 Restoration.

I have received two retro things in very bad conditions.

  • 1 x Floppy Drive CD-1411
  • 1 x Commodore Amiga CDROM A570

… but for now we are talking about the Commodore A570.

The Commodore A570 have serious problems that i list below:

  • Outside case is very dirty, yellowed and broken in several parts.
  • The Caddy Guide Tracks has been destroyed.
  • Damaged screws thread.
  • The metal plate under the CDROM is bent on one side.
  • Many rusty parts.
  • Main PCB with traces of water/limestone and rust.

Works that have been made:

  • Fixed the CDROM CADDY holder, it was not easy because all the metal guides are bent, now it works.
  • Main PCB cleaning on both sides with the Kontakt PCC and toothbrush.
  • Cleaned and grease the two rails of the laser head.
  • Cleaned the head lens of the CDROM.
  • Fixed the bent metal plate under the CDROM.
  • Cleaning outer casing.
  • Fixed with the glue the two pins for closing the case with the screws.

Work still to be done:

  • The bottom part of the A570 CDROM is very rusty, i need to sand down gently and at least give a hand of anti rust.

Aesthetically is very bad but at least works.
