Just wondering if there was a PDF out there of the 1200XL field service manual?

I just checked my PDF service manual folder and I do not have it. Still possible someone might though.

I can't find a PDF of the service manual, but I did find a collection of 10 GIFs that claim to be the schematic. Anyone interested?

Absolutely! If the manual ever turns up it may be missing the schematics, so they would be helpful...

I hope you're not talking about me - there's a difference between being polite and clueless.


Still looking for the manual if anyone has it...

Noooo... keep it all in my head.

Really isn't much difference between the XL manuals, anyway. Just the schematic. Who needs a copy of the silkscreen? Schematic is really poor, by the way.

Hey Bob!

I've got a 1200 that sometimes fails to show the snazzy ATARI logo on startup. It works with a cartridge every time, but without one it usually goes into a green-tinged coma...

Sounds like the MMU... Do you have any spares?

Will one from an 800XL work?

On the 800XL the MMU is at U3 -- what's the location on the 1200XL?

I can scan it in this weekend but it's really not that useful. I can do the 130xe as well.

Still looking for the rev 2 800xl service guide.

That would be much appreciated. Does that have better schematics included?

The schematics are tiny and visually poor. The 130xe ones are pretty nice.

The MMU for the 1200XL is only for a 1200XL. Last two digits are 09, sits in U14. The two ROMs at U12 and U13, and the MMU at U14 are all 1200XL specific. There are instructions for replacing them with an 800XL/600XL ROM and MMU, but that may be more work than it is worth. (requires soldering and such) I have a ton of old MMUs and ROMs, if you want me to send you some.

That sobola schematic site has been there for over 10 years, and most of his schematics have some serious omissions and errors in them. You'd be much better off using the original hand-drawn schematics from the atari FSMs or the large extended schematics in Sams Computerfacts books (you can still get them in electronic form from Sam's site, or even request a printed copy for very reasonable prices)..

Hi,

Did a quick google. Didn't find their website. Do you have the url?

Thanks

Found www.samswebsite.com but nothing listed for the 1200xl. Do you know of another source?

1200XL FSM and 1200XL Schematics from the FSM. Warning, the schematics are tiny poor and horrible... but still better than 1450 ones.
