Can anyone please tell me the diameter of the centre pin on a 1050 disk drive please? I've bought a couple of new 3a 9v AC transformers and the plugs supplied are slightly too small and i'd like to see if I can get a small adapter for the plugs instead of cutting them off and soldering on new one's
You have a 1050, so you can see it's approximate size. I would guess 1 mm. I don't have a micrometer to measure it with.
Cutting off a 1050 AC adapter plug would be straightforward. You don't have a stock1050 power adapter to get the plug from.
Wait.. you have a busted 1050 power supply, Using that would be easier than getting an exact plug.
Does anyone have a 1200XL that shipped with the rev 11 OS? Both rev 10 and 11 have the ATARI splash screen, but rev 11 has the trademark ® to the right of the "I". Rev 11 has bug fixes, but I have never seen an actual stock 1200XL that shipped with rev 11. Rev 11 is way more compatible with 400/800 games than rev 10 and its almost identical to the 600/800XL OS. I think Atari gave up the splash screen for PBI capability in the 800XL OS. Just wanted to know if Atari ever shipped rev 11 or was it fixed but never made it into production since the 1200XL had such a short run.
My 1200XL has the (tiny R in a circle) to the right, next to the "I".
What difference is there? Different OS?
Has 83S DA 0 25206 153 on the bottom.
( I see the R in a circle is for the splash screen, not the label on the bottom)
OK, mine doesn't have an 'R' in circle on the splash screen, just the rolling rainbow 'ATARI'.
