  1. It must have been back in the day. A Sampo tv with a built in pong game I take it would have been like how super nintendo and sega genesis was common but to find someone with laser active or a jvc xeye. Unheard of for most the people at the time.
  2. Quite a steep learning curve taking on a tv even with all the documents. I think for right now, just having a paired set is good enough. Just appreciating is where I need to settle on right now. Down the road I'll either tackle it or try again to find someone who can handle the task. I wonder if you can do English subtitles to get an idea of what they are saying. I do have another portable TV by Sampo that has pong built into it. Came with the manual but no box. Only other TV that kinda fits the built in pong variety is the magnavox 4305 that had pong built in also.
  3. The TV came with 6 or 7 booklets with schematics on all the boards and what is on each board. I fear the cost for restoring and going through the TV will be pricey. I dont see too many TV restoration places online and I fear trying to mail the TV anywhere.
  4. Here is my example of my Heathkit GD1380 pong console. This pong unit uses a special connector to hook up to certain Heathkit model TVs. ( The later GD-1999 pong unit uses a standard connector and hooks up to any television). As luck would have it I did come across this Heathkit GR-2000 model 25 inch color console TV that is one of the few models that is compatible with the GD1380 pong unit. The TV needs to be restored and gone through before I attempt to power it up and try everything out but being able to pair it up and have it the way it would have been back in the day. I hope one day I will have everything restored and working like it was back when it was new. I doubt many of these combos survived but I figure Id share this with everyone.
  5. Looking to see who has some harder to find atari home computer carts they are willing to part with. Feel free to let me know what you have
  6. Thanks. I dont regret many items sold. Basically just this one. Sorry bout your pain with yours. Just sucks.
  7. It boots to rescue on fractalus So this one is a prototype before a name was picked out. BUT im hoping I didnt wait too long to get it back.
  8. Does anyone on here can help me locate which member might have my atari 5200 prototype cart labeled as #3. I guess a good start is who here is a big 5200 collector or prototype collector? I sold it years ago and still regret it . Here are some photos of it. Maybe someone will have information that will lead me to a sale to get her back home. I might be willing to do a reward for the person who has the contact info for me that does get the deal done . I dont know how much i can afford. I hope someone can help.
  9. Ive dumped all the eproms that had anything on them. ( some look like a few character blocks had something but not be complete). In all 28 BIN files. would anyone here be interested in helping me decode them and see if we can figure out what is atari hcs games , atari hcs hardware chips, and which are for other atari consoles? I know one is for the 7800 in the form of a Maria Graphics chip in eprom form.
  10. Hey defender ii I'm trying to send you a message about said topic but you arent taking messages. Please send me a message if you get this thanks
  11. Preppie, Ive been kicking around with that . I cant copy and paste the code so im working on how to get the code over. and yep windows 7 pc
  12. Can someone recommend a good decompiler for the atari 8 bit computer BINs that i get through dumping roms? I can get to hex level but i need to break that down to english so i can read things. Any ideas?
  13. I order more from facebook and ebay. I hit up local stores that I know keep things clean to start with. A solid cleaning habit will be cleaner when they need to step things up. Outside of that yeah online mostly now.
