Anyone know anything about these carts?  Found them in an Atari batch from an estate sale.  One is labeled 2.6 DOM and the other says Kluge Signal Tracing.

 

Any info would be appreciated!

Service center carts, missing the joystick plugs (usually blue).  One is the test cart and the other one is well, a Kluge cart.

 

Search for "Diagnostic Cart".

Cool, thanks for the info.  I found info on the 2.6 and I was able to test it.  The Kluge cart only displays a blank screen.  Is that normal or is it not functioning?

Yes, it does not even have a ROM on the PCB.

I have 2 4.2 chips for diagnostic testing for the 2600 and have never gotten either to work is that the same idea as the 2m6 or do I need a special board to run them?

The board you need depends on what kind of chip they are (EPROMs or Mask ROMs) and what size.

Also, you'll need test plugs to actually use it to diagnose a faulty console.
Here are schematics of the plugs for the 2.6 version. Hopefully the 4.2 uses the same ones, but it might not. (The 2.0 prototype rom uses different ones)
