  1. I am close enough to Levittown that I seriously considered it, but I just don't have the space for a pinball machine.
  2. Stumbled across this on Facebook Marketplace. Someone in Levittown PA is try to give away a non-working Atarians pinball. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/2628342074044685
  3. It's a cool piece of art, but incongruous to me since I most associate Buck Rogers with the series from the late 70's. I wonder who did this art?
  4. I just ran across this one..
  5. I am not aware of any O2 cart that had extra RAM in it. In theory it should be possible.
  6. Here is a little article on the artist on a web site all about box art. http://www.boxequalsart.com/stevepurcellartistpage.html
  7. I am sure there is an answer to this around somewhere, but I thought I would ask anyway.... We are all familiar with the infamous Intellivision keyboard component. Do we know how many of these are still in existence?
  8. It's location varied. I had a machine with the sticker in that location.
  9. Based on the pictures in this auction, it appears that the auction the op posted is simply the box that goes inside the colorful sleeve. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Atari-800-home-computer-system-48K-Ram-With-Original-Box-UNTESTED/133384720606?_trkparms=aid%3D1110001%26algo%3DSPLICE.SIM%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D225086%26meid%3Dd3d54085d5434ad5b48063ca5bc2ccae%26pid%3D100623%26rk%3D4%26rkt%3D5%26sd%3D402134754048%26itm%3D133384720606%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2047675&_trksid=p2047675.c100623.m-1
  10. The light switch would work fine for the gear shift. The dimmer is a little more complicated. There is more electronics in a dimmer then just the potentiometer (variable resistor) so hooking it up directly would not work. You could potentially use the potentiometer inside, but it would have to be the same resistance value as the one in Pong.
  11. That link will only show you your cart, no one else can see it.
  12. I ran across this video the other day that shows the inner workings of Blip. Really cool piece of mechanical design...
  13. Did you check if you are getting a good voltage from the power supply?
  14. Since you are getting something on the screen the analog portion is probably working ok, so video is getting from the video chip to the TV, so this would leave a problem with the digital part of the system. In any other system I would say start with cleaning the cart connector, but since the internal games don't work either, that's not going to be an issue. If you have soldering skills you could try touching up solder joints.
  15. If you were using a non-Atari printer with the 850 interface module, it made sense to have the printer on the left since the parallel jack on the 850 was on the left, although I easily solved that problem by flipping the 850 upside down.
