You may also want to consider having your ‘dead’ board repaired. The vast majority can be brought back to life.

Yes, thanks.
I am actually going to take a look at doing that myself but figured I would just put the feelers out and see how much and if anyone had one.

How did you get on? I'm on the lookout for a dead board so I can remove every single component and hang it on the wall in my office as a piece of industrial art. Obviously, the less components on it the better 🙂

Have you considered one of the remake boards? They're only available in blue at the moment, but I think there may be a run of green ones later on?

I've seen the remake, an interesting idea, I toyed with the idea myself, but not to make a 1:1 replacement as there are still tens of thousands of BBC Micros knocking around and unless someone's whacked the board with an axe, I can't see a board being unrepairable. For a new PCB I would have added Transputer link support and as I've got plenty of the old school INMOS RAMDACs I'd add 24 bit colour to a video ULA remake, rather pointless now as the RGB2HDMI can work solely in the digital domain. Nope. I just want an old, original BBC Micro PCB that has been given up on so I can turn it into a bit of objet d'art 😀
