I was looking at the 2600 FAQ here on AA and noticed that some sears models were made by Dimerco Electronics and the labels said this:

Mfd. for Atari Inc. by Dimerco Electronics in Taiwan for sale to
Sears, Roebuck, and Co. Serial # 82077230.

Mine is similar but does not say "for sale to Sears, Roebuck, and Co."
I don't know where there are pics of these labels but here is mine:

It's on a standard 2600 light sixer

Mine has the same sticker. I would also like to know what the deal is.

A quick Google search for "Dimerco Electronics" doesn't reveal anything interesting, so I guess the company isn't around anymore. I always figured it was a contractor in Taiwan that handled Atari's manufacturing for them. I've had 2600 consoles with "Manufactured by TRW Electronics" stickers, also made in Taiwan.

Wow, is AA a great place, or what?

I mean, post a question, wait a while (3-and-a-half years in this case), and someone will eventually respond! :D

Interesting (or not) that the original post was on April Fool's Day, 2007? :?: :!: :ponder:

Wow, I didn't even notice the original post date, but the label on his Atari is the same as mine, so I'm sure it wasn't a joke. Just coincidence.

I just came here looking for info on my own Dimerco Electronics made 2600.

Actually, I just saved it from my Dad's storage and looked to see if it was a Sunnyvale or what.  My serial number is much lower I noticed.

Also, there's a number "340" between the label and the power socket.  What does that mean?

​Mine says Dimerco also.  Never noticed.
