This is an NTSC 800XL. Notice the Warner Communications text is absent from the label. Could this be an Atari Corp. version?

There are also no socketed chips on the motherboard.

My S/N are here : 




All my XL or XEs are PAL by default, except 1 secam 800XL, all XEGS are SECAM.

Wondering if there's a larger/updated list of 800xl serials anywhere. This topic was the best I found when searching, but one never knows...



I was just trying to figure out when I got each of my 800xl's back in the 80's and started digging through stuff...


My first 800xl had serial 114106, D-374, made in taiwan, has Rev B Basic.  Based on date code, sept '84, I assume I got it late '84 or very early '85.


My 2nd 800xl has serial 338710, D-524, taiwan, Rev C Basic.  This one has the receipt in the box....I mail-ordered it direct from Atari, Sunnyvale, in June of 1988 (totally forgot about that....I guess they had an 8-bit warehouse clearance??  Other than to test it, it's never been used.)


a 3rd 800xl has serial 4105134 and was made in hong kong, has rev B Basic.  Was gotten at a computer swap meet in 1989 for $35...and it had been upgraded with a 256k Rambo.




Now...moving off-topic, but does anyone have any info on 1050 drive serials? Haven't come across any useful info yet, but my 4 drives have the following #'s :


48445 473

04836 015

10483 344

80231 234


all have prefix code of 7VDFF and were made in singapore.

The last three inked digits are WWY.  So "473" is 47th week of 83

Got an NTSC Chelco 800XL. hunmanik asked if I'd post the serial
number on this thread. I tried to take photos, but they came out too
grainy/blurry, I'd be embarrassed to post anything that bad (plus
you really can't read the serial number or board revision). It
looks *very* similar to kheller2's Chelco 800XL found here:

Bottom of the case has a black label, with white text. Says:


Has an Atari Fuji logo plus a Warner logo and tiny text reading "A Warner
Communications Company"

Serial number is 7YJ HA 105853 164

(16th week of 1984, perhaps?)

Screened onto the board, partially covered by a couple of "Burn-in passed"
stickers, it says:

Chelco 1983
P/N: 1508000011
REV. A2 800XL

A further oddity: this 800XL has the chroma line connected... but
somehow incorrectly: composite video is fine, but luma/chroma gives
almost no color saturation and the palette is wrong (greens come out as
brown/orange, etc). There's a whole topic about it here:

I'm not sure if anyone is still looking for these, but the thread got bumped when Urchlay added his/hers, so I'll add mine.


72RHA 137321 (D-39 4) - (Atari/Warner made in Taiwan) - bfollowell
