If you haven't read my other post i wanted to get a list going on 6'ers serial numbers to see who here has the oldest. I found out that it was going to be a little more difficult than that, seeing how nobody really knows what the suffix letter represents or what letters were used. So it was suggested that it might still be a decent idea if for no other reason than just to see what suffixes were used.

Just post what the # on your 6'er is and any other pertinent info (i.e. Sears or Atari console, Taiwan made or anything other info you think would be useful). I will try to update daily and rearrange according to company and suffix letter.

I will start the list in my second post with my own two that i currently have.

My Lable is not there but I know that on the inside there is a reciept for a repair dont to her in 81-82? How can I locate my serial number w/o the lable?

 

That's likely to be the factory inspection tag. It may or may not have been repaired - from what I have read, some service centers would just add the repair date to the existing paper, while other shops would remove the original paper and put a new one in.

If there's no label on the bottom, there is no way to know the serial number.

I also have a Sunnvale "light" sixer, has heavy sixer internals (no channel select switch) and the standard white Sunnyvale serial # label.  It might have been a repair, but if it was they took great care in moving the label over.  #73146N

 

They probably didn't move the label, more likely they put old-style guts in a newer case, or replaced a broken case bottom (assuming it's possible to break just the bottom of a heavy sixer case - I have no idea how anyone could do that without destroying the whole thing or at least damaging the top too). Does your case top have open slots for the speakers? The speakers were deleted before production began, but heavy sixer case tops had slots for the sound to come out. AFAIK, only heavy sixers had the slots open. By the time the case bottom was updated to "light" sixer style, the mold for the top had already been reworked to close the slots.

EDIT: I have since learned that many light sixer and 4-switch "woody" units also have the open speaker slots. Some even have one side open and the other side filled!

Geo only has one non-lettered, 5-digit serial. Also, several long serials that are not identified as to what style they are or if they are PAL.

Thanks for all the support guys, keep them coming. If I make any mistakes let me know, I usually get to the forums after work and my concentration isn't always the best ( 12 hour shift).

You want the list? It's Here.


I was directed to this list already, but it didn't appear to have been updated since 2002. Plus I wanted to make this an AA thing so that if we can find out what the suffixes represent then we will know who here has the earliest Big Sexy.


Sure you don't want PAL heavy sixer numbers too?


After thinking about this I decided that the more examples of 6'er Serial #'s we have the better off we are. So feel free to post them I'll add a heading for them as well as one for other consoles that don't fit anywhere else( i.e. Light Sixer case with Heavy internals or whatever)

I'd like to thank all that participate again, I'm not sure what will become of this list or when I'll be able to get down to serious research, but all of your help is appreciated. Having a good list will make things easier when I do have more time to devote to research. Also if anyone has more info that they think is pertinent please post it.

So there are PAL H6s? Were they made in Sunnyvale or Taiwan?

I'd like to know too. Could someone who owns one provide some pics of the sticker?

There are pics here and here.

I have one with a similar sticker, and another on the way. Both made in Sunnyvale, neither with FCC conformity declarations on the sticker.

Cool thanks for the pics. No suffix on those either. Would you like to add your PAL 6'er S/N to the list?

My Heavy Sixer is S/N T0016613. I guess I am one of the unlucky few with a Taiwanese built Heavy Sixer.

It looks exactly like someone put the old-style guts in a newer case. Hence my repair theory... unless you are suggesting it came that way originally? Also, I don't think it would be the bottom that broke, as whole case is a "light sixer"... AFAIK, the parts are not compatible. So the whole case would have been replaced if either the top or bottom were broken, which made me think repair & moved label. But I'll post some pics, maybe I'm missing something obvious.

Does your case top have open slots for the speakers? The speakers were deleted before production began, but heavy sixer case tops had slots for the sound to come out. AFAIK, only heavy sixers had the slots open. By the time the case bottom was updated to "light" sixer style, the mold for the top had already been reworked to close the slots.

 

It has open slots; but I am certain I've seen open slots on other "light" sixers...

Thanks for the info re open slots, I stand corrected. I guess there was some mix-and-matching that went on, or possibly the slots in the top were closed after the "light" case bottom was introduced.

I still don't get your point about the light sixer case with the heavy sixer guts. What makes you think the serial sticker is in any way connected to the circuitry? Why couldn't it just be a case that already had its own sticker (and circuit boards beyond repair), and only the boards were swapped?

I have a Sunnyvale PAL light sixer. It did have heavy sixer guts, but I had to replace the guts as it was not working properly. I have attached a scan of the serial number.
