  1. Thanks, Thanks to both of you, that's exactly what I need to know.
  2. (sorry for double post) Well, I seem to have found the answer to both questions 1 and 3. Still the question remains does the Expansion Module 1 work with video mods? If the way I type makes me look like a spambot just say so too.
  3. I am considering buying a Colecovision w/ Expansion Module 1 for 2600 games but, I have three questions about it. 1. What (if any) compatibility problems does the Expansion Module have with 2600 games? 2. I've seen that the component mod is a bit hit or miss in terms of working w/ correct colors or at all. Has it been improved since? Is it currently a viable option? 3. If I so choose to get some sort of video mod done, can I use the signal from the mod for Atari games, or will I have to revert to RF? Thank you, for any and all answers. EDIT: Fail on spelling in the thread title. *facepalm* EDIT: Fixed

    Thanks for the offer man still considering. Now on to the other news: My Q,A,and Z keys are dead, or do I just need to clean the keyboard somehow?

    Thanks for the advice! That's likely because the necessary chips to convert the signal would make it over complicated, and/or too expensive, and/or too big, or just impossible. Mainly because SIMMs act much differently from Standard D-ram like the 400 has, I believe.

    Thanks, anyway I swore that only the 800 had the Ram slots but I'm apparently wrong Also will this do? http://cgi.ebay.com/RAMPOWER-32-FOR-ATARI-...93%3A1|294%3A50

    Well, I have no basic cartridge and most 16k Ataris I've seen had a 16k sticker on the bottom which mine doesn't. On the other hand I did find a good deal on a 810 floppy drive, a 410 cassette drive, and a SX express modem so I can dial into the BBSes here.

    Thanks for the advice! I believe I have the stock 8k I did some reading and it really sucks that I have to learn how to solder to upgrade it Yeah I kind noticed the 400 turned off when I opened the lid. I have a really old but reliable AA-powered digital camera, and once again I have only the stock 8k.
  9. Hey everyone, I'm brand new to this forum and have an Atari 400 here that I dug up out of storage recently with no cartridges, no cassette drive, and no disk drive (although there were 3 joysticks). After getting the thing plugged in for the first time in a while I noticed that the switch box used those prongs instead of the standard screw-down coax connectors. So after an 3-min argument with the guy at RadioShack about "Yes the RF modulator is indeed built into the Atari." I finally got an RCA-to-Coax adapter and pluged it into my TV. So now here I am typing this as I look at a blue screen with the phrase "ATARI COMPUTER - MEMO PAD" at the top on my little 13" TV I have next to my PC. So to end this my only question is "Now what?". Because quite literally I have no idea where to go from here.
