A proble some new Oric owners and some that might who might have had theirs a while is if you any problems with the ORICS is is there in their respective countries any recommended repairers I have googled the UK sites and seen two that stand out one in the south of England " Mutant Caterpillar " I think it may be called and another in the North East whose name I don't know ? , any English Oric owners have any experience of repairs done by commercial companies and is it the same in Europe ?

My Atmos is currently with Mutant Caterpillar for repair. I'll report back on the service once it is repaired.

Thanks for your feedback , professional repairers are thin on the ground for. ORICS I think it nice to know your Oric can be repaired instead of being thrown out !

Update. So it has been repaired. Apparently, it was a motherboard quality issue. No component needed replacing but careful soldering was required. Ian socketed the important chips, just in case.
