  2. Do the buttons make a clicking sound when pressed? Like with microswitches... I like that sound :-)
  3. Thanks for the replies everyone! It seemed that indeed the RF-cable was the culprit. I tried another one and everything is fine, but still the signal gets quickly distorted when fiddling about with the connector on the Atari side. >I use the gold plated cable with 110% Chinesium they are the only kind that work well with my Ataris. Where can I get one of these? Thanks
  4. Hi all I just bought an Atari 7800 (PAL). The seller claimed that it was hardly ever used and indeed it looks like new. At home I hooked it up to a CRT TV, inserted a Centipede cartridge and turned it on: everything worked perfectly. I unplugged everything to clean up the desk (consoles stackup upon each other you know how it goes :-) After that I hooked up the Atari again, but now there is no image on my TV. When I do a channel search, nothing is found. The LED on the front of the Atari lights up, I tried several cartridges, but nothing... I am not an electronics guy, so I am a bit at a loss as to what to do... Any suggestions? Help is more than welcome!
  5. Thanks for the answers! I found this on gamestudies.org: "However, the production of ‘Made in Japan’ home consoles started in 12 September 1975 with the toy company Epoch[12] and its “TV Tennis Electrotennis”. Epoch made a partnership with Magnavox for the development of the technology, as this console was wireless and functioning through a UHF antenna. It was obviously a Pong clone for the home, and was probably released even before the Atari “Home Pong” which has supposedly been commercialized by Sears for Christmas 1975 (Kent, 2001, p. 242). From 1975 to 1983, until the arrival of the Nintendo Family Computer (Famicom) in 1983, around 125 home consoles were released in Japan, most of them Pong clones and dedicated consoles, including importations of US consoles Odyssey (1974) and Atari VCS (1977) (Atsugi & Mizusaki, 2000; Game Museum, 2005, pp. 5--9)." Is there anybody out there who is knowledgeable enough to confirm that this is an Epoch machine?
  6. Hello all I got this from a collector who got it from an other collector... that's just about all I know. The machine works, but image quality is horrible on a PAL TV. On the top right corner there is a label "2" (shiny metal-like) On the bottom left there is an other label in Japanese (?) Any information is more than welcome!
