Have a 4-port that won't completely boot, 2 standard controllers, TrakBall, RF switch, power supply, and 3 carts.  PacMan, Space Invaders, and Centipede.  All three have their overlays.


There is an original box, but it has a rectangular cut-out piece in it (was there a contest / coupon on the boxes??!?!?), but if I have to ship it I'd rather pack things better than they fit in there.


Let me know; I paid $10 at a garage sale for it, and don't have time to troubleshoot it.

Have you tried other games?  Or is it just one specific game?

This is tempting for the Trakball alone, but I really don't need more junk hardware in my house.

I'd like to pick this up, see if I can fix the 5200, then sell em working and keep the trackball.  Did you have a price in mind? Also where are you located? shipping from outside USA would be deal killer for me if the lot isn't cheap enough.

Does it have the controller bay door on it still?

Sorry for not being around, fellas - been working odd hours, and now I need to jam to Vega$ - Mom's not telling me she likely has cancer, and it's time to kick her ass just in case she doesn't...


ALl 3 games splash, then it freezes up and don't load.

Someone had it apart before I did

I swapped RAM chip locations and re-seated everything else.

BRoke my DMM, so didn't measure supply voltages (sorry).

YEs, it has the cover, 2 controllers, trak-ball etc.


I am in SoCal about 30minutes South of Disneyland.



I leave for Vega$ in 30 minutes.

If someone wants to meet there, I can stuff it in the Jeep and drag it along for the ride.



Gotta catch up on PM's though, I think I have a couple messages.


Price?  Make an offer - it's more important it goes to good vs. the scrap heap!
