Questions regarding the Amiga computer: I'm familiar most with software issues, but will do my best to troubleshoot any hardware problem you've encountered. If I can't answer a specific question, I will do my best to direct you to someone who can.

Experience in the area

I certainly don't know everything about the Amiga, but having been a user of several different Amiga models for about fifteen years, I'm willing to share what I know.

Hi Tomaz,    Not being a hardware expert, I can only make a pooly-educated guess, but I would suspect some of the hardware within your Amiga 500 is at fault. You could also ask on the old Usenet newsgroups

Hi Fred,    Is the flash red light coming from the monitor or from somewhere else, such as the Power LED?    If it's the monitor, you likely have a bad ROM (Read-Only Memory) chip that needs replacing
