I have recently been given a non-working Acorn teletext adapter with ATS 2.58. Everything seems to be working okay aside from 2 things, 1, I can't seem to tune it in and 2, when plugged in and switched on the soldered joints on the most forward part of the power-supply from the middle to the right of the PCB become extremely hot and there is a smell of solder. Can anyone help? I am willing to pay for a repair. I have had a couple of responses to my request for DFS readers for the Archimedes but I am still in the position where I cannot WRITE to a DFS disc on the Archimedes. If you have a program which can read/write DFS discs on an Archimedes contact me and we can arrange something.
