I have an AG 1980 that just needs the video heads replaced. Everything else has been fixed. If someone wants a part of this PM my account. You would need to send another AG Unit so I can pull the heads out. I have done about $500 worth of work restoring this machine so that would be the final cost, plus you pay for shipping. This is the best deal I can offer it would take like 2 days to flip the unit and ship it back.

Replacing 200 caps for $60? The person selling that service would have to be crazy. That takes hours.
The video cards on all these units need to be rebuilt, the power supply and all the boards replaced with new capacitors and resistors.
The AG-1980P are better units than the AG-1980. Plus on the standard 1980 you have a metal plate board which was soldered in to the machine. Which is almost impossible to work with.
It took years to learn how to fix these units and my methods did change a few years ago, now I rebuild the entire unit and that is everything in it.
The machine I have here has worn out heads and that is why they need to be replaced because the picture is only medium and over time will be crap. Most of the broken down Ebay
units, which in my opinion they are all pretty much broken, rarely have bad heads, unless the machine was used as a work horse back in the day.
