So how does one know if theirs is an NTSC or a PAL?

Isn't NTSC North America and PAL is Europe, or something like that?

Hey I don't think that's a valid serial number? They usually end with a letter if it's NTSC.

 

Do you have pics you could post?

PAL units are just numbers for the serial number, usually 5 numbers.

NTSC serial numbers end with a letter.

 

NTSC is USA. PAL is UK.

Oooh good point! I'm so used to every one knowing the difference between the two, lol.

I've updated the original post with an excellent video explaining the differences between the two.

 

 

IndyJones1023: Could you post a pic of the front of the unit so I could verify if it is a light 6-switch? If so I'll provide you with a link to the light 6-switch forum on here. Thanks!

MFG Location: Sunnyvale, CA

Owner: BalloonFighter Location: Central Florida, USA

A/B Channel Slot: Yes

A/B Channel Switch: No

I'll add a pic of the Serial # sticker as soon as I can.

Where it says "Owner", it refers to the current owner of the system, not the previous/original owner. So in this case, you are the owner.

I think I might have either a “Taiwanese” Heavy Sixer or possibly a refurbished model.  Externally it appears to be a Light Sixer, but when I cracked open the case; the guts appear to be a Heavy Sixer . . .the shielding is definitely bigger and heavier than what is in my "Darth Vader" model. 

 

The sticker on the bottom appears to be silver, serial # 070090 and says MFG in Sunnyvale, but inside there is a “Made in Tawian” sticker.

 

NTSC
Serial # 070090
MFG Location: Sunnyvale on external sticker; Taiwan on internal sticker
AtariAge ID: Ragno
Location=Sacramento, CA, USA
A/B Channel Slot (Yes/No): Yes
A/B Channel Switch (Yes/No):
Functional (Yes/No): Yes
Notes: purchased from eBay
Refurbished (Silver Label) (Yes/No): Maybe
