A Black Panther with new PSU capacitors and a 250GB HDD. It comes boxed with a manual, short RF lead, long RF lead, scart lead and a new original remote.

Price 70 including carriage. Save 10 if you can collect from Fleet (M3 J4a/5).

(Please note that this is not a donated Toppy; there will be one of those along shortly).

I have a donated silver 5800 which is a bit of a hybrid. It was originally donated with a faulty mainboard. I have not yet been able to fix the mainboard fault, but then a kind forum member donated a spare mainboard, so I now have a working Toppy to offer. The profits from this will be donated towards the forum running costs, as I've done previously.

The silver one has a new set of capacitors (of course) and comes with manual, remote and short RF cable. It has a 250GB disk, but I can offer other options.

Minimum price is 60 inc. delivery, but higher bids will mean a bigger forum donation.

The silver Toppy is temporarily withdrawn, as I have just used its mainboard to replace one with faulty tuner in a forum member's Toppy.

I will replace the faulty tuner when I get time, so it will be available again soon.

I might be interested in this as my Toppy has just stopped working. Is it still available?

Thanks in anticipation.

Andy (andyfras) can probably fix your Toppy for a very reasonable cost. Hit the PM (Personal Message) button in the signature of his post above to contact him. Andy is in Fleet Hampshire.

MikeyP (Bolton) also provides a repair service for forum members.

The Black Panther is now sold.

I have not fixed the silver Toppy yet (swapping tuners is very time-consuming). I'll post here when it's ready, but feel free to express an interest in the meantime.

The silver Toppy has now been sold.

A donation has been made to the forum running costs. Thanks to BouncyCow for the donated mainboard.
