  1. So this will be like a multi part post and Im sorry for all the reading ahead of time! So basically Im been doing some thinking and I feel like being 25, I want to only collect for a few systems. So I decided to focus on Atari systems and sell my odd systems. It basically boils down to I want to get back into collecting for the Jaguar, though I sold my system a few years ago and now its so expensive! My local game store as one CIB for 250$. Is that a decent deal? Id also look into trading my entire collection of Dreamcast or my Intellivision collection for a Jaguar (message me if interested in trading!), I feel like if I sell them Id make up the 205$ back easily (I have like 40 games for both systems and both systems are modded). You think I should buy the cib haguar or go the trade route? Also Id love to buy the classics like tempest 2000, defender 2000, or breakout 2000 though I know there kind of rare. Any ideas on where to buy them?
  2. Im looking to see if someone would trade my entire Dreamcast collection or my entire Intellivision collection, for an Atari Jaguar system+games and whatnot. My Dreamcast I have like 30 games including resident evil 3 and sonic adventure 1+2 and tons of others or my Intellivision 1 thats professionally rca modded with like 20 boxed games and like 15 loose carts. (Message me to ask what games for both systems)
  3. Up for free is 3 items I dont need/have extras off. Mousetrap I think works but cannot 100% guarantee it. My Rules: You pay for 100% of the shipping cost Any and all items you take will go to a good home (thats all I ask). See photos of items/message me if you have any questions and whatnot. Shipping from Maine, 04578 zip. No international please! Item 1: Intellivision NFL playbook manual/booklet. Poor-fair condition. Item 2: Celecovison Mousetrap cart only. I believe it worked the last time I played it but Cant garentee if it works (95% sure it does though) Fair/decent cart condition. Typical 30+ year old average loose cart condition.
  4. Thanks. I’ll see if I can send him an email. Do you or anyone know of someone who can service my 1010? I’m not that technical so I don’t dare do it myself
  5. I placed a wanted ad in the wanted section but no one answered so I figured Id have a better shot asking for help here. Im trying to fix the stuff I already have to save some money instead of paying for new things. Im looking for someone to service my Atari 1010 player and my Atari 1050. Can do both or just one or the other. Im asking for help with it being fixed up, like change the bands, clean the head, maybe an alignment on my 1050 if possible etc. Id pay for shipping, pay for the bands and whatever else youd need and the agreed upon price for your services. Its the Sanyo version for the 1010 and the tendon version for the 1050 if that matters. Thank you ahead of time.

  7. So Im trying to save as much money as possible lately because me and girlfriend are saving up for our first apartment together and even though I really wanted an 800xl or even a 1200xl every little bit helps (she talked me out of it! Haha) My 800 was getting a little iffy(door was squeaking etc) So i thought Id do a little cleaning on my old 800. And I thought you guys would like it. Its a late model 800 with 48k. I opened it up and took it completely apart. I used soap and water on the outer case, greased the hinges and canned air sprayed and dusted the entire motherboard. There was so much dust and even some cob webs in the case! I soaked the keys in soap and water for an hour too! I put it back together (made sure it was dry!) and it seems to work a lot better even though I dont want to jinx it. The door hinge doesnt squeak anymore, I think it runs cooler after removing all that dust from inside of it and the machine smells like soap haha. I tried to get rid of some gunk on the outside of it and I got most of it! Here are the better and after photos! The one hooked up to the tv was after I cleaned it to test it. Now I feel like I dont have to upgrade my 800 anymore! Im quite proud of myself I dont normal do anything like that (not the most technical guy). Has anyone done something similar recently?
  8. Best sells the belt for 6$ And if everyone is saying its relatively easy and simple Ill probably do it and just go slow. As for the alignment disc and the oscilloscope, I wouldnt have the slightest idea on how to use them. Ill have to pay someone to do it for me. Anyone know of anybody who can help me with that? And I didnt know I could hook my Atari 800 to the internet. I dont know how.
  9. Thank you for helping. The metal shielding is still there. Somewhat dusty though inside. I cleaned it all out and the belt is OK, it has a little tension, though it is somewhat stretchy if that makes sense. The 1050 does work, though some discs work flawlessly while others just give me boot errors. Is it really easy to change the belt on the drive? Im not the most coordinated to be honest but if anyone can do it Ill just go slow. Do I need anything besides the belt itself? Is there a video or step by step guide to follow for replacing the belt?
  10. I opened it up to see what was going on. The caps look ok. I took a few pictures to see if you guys thought otherwise though I know its kind of hard without seeing it in person. It also had those numbers on the side I dont know if they mean anything though. Does best electronics sell the diagnostic disc?
  11. I wouldnt know how to begin to replace the capacitors. To be honest Ive never soldered anything before. And I assume both my 1050 and 1010 is stock. I honestly dont know if its been serviced after they left the Atari factory. Would the 1050 diagnostic disc let me know if it even needs service in the first place?
  12. I was wondering if someone knows how one goes about getting these both serviced now adays. Like getting my 1050 aligned or having someone change/fix the belts for my 1010. To be honest when I have some extra money I was really looking into getting them fixed up. They still both work but they are also almost 40 years old and I dont know how bad they are on the inside (parts and all). I could ship them out to people too and get them serviced if I had too. I was just wondering what everyone else has done with their machines.

    Wanted: 1200xl

    Looking to buy outright(wed decide on the price) or trade+cash my 800 computer for an Atari 1200xl. Message me if interested. The 800 is maxed out for ram, overall decent condition for something 40 years old too, and works great.
  14. Bump. Im very interested in a 1200xl. I could trade you my 800 and Ill give you cash on top of it (wed decide how much). The 800 comes from a smoke/pet free home and was always well cared for!
