  1. The Bally did this new back in the 70s. This is just how the system was made.
  2. Thanks for looking! https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_nkw=&LH_SpecificSeller=1&_saslop=1&_sasl=holygrailvideogames&_mPrRngCbx=1&_sop=12&_ex_kw=&_udlo=&_udhi=&_fosrp=1
  3. I don't but I might be able to get one. The only reason I thought it might be the power supply is because something is bouncing around inside of it.
  4. I have an Atari 800xl that used to work. It has been modified with a switch on the back. I thought it was an Omniview but I pulled up my receipt from when I bought it 10+ years ago and it says it was modified with an Omniview256. It has been several years since I last used it. I tried it this week and now all I get is a black screen when I try to turn it on. I tried both switch settings. I noticed that something is bouncing around in the power supply. Could the power supply be the issue? I am trying to decide if I should just sell it for parts as is and move on, have someone try to fix it or buy a new power supply and see if that will solve the issue. I don't have time to try to fix it myself. Thanks.
  5. If anyone is interested there is a nice looking boxed Atari 2800 up on eBay. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Rare-ATARI-2800-Japanese-2600-Very-nice-condition-Missile-Command-game/184158971777?hash=item2ae0bae781:g:BusAAOSwKlxeOP5V
  6. Thank you! I like the box even if it is a bootleg.
  7. I don't recognize the Frogger box that was included in this auction. Is this a rare variation for the 2600? https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Lot-of-21-Atari-Game-Boxes-1978-1982-Originals-/333497940616?hash=item4da606ba88%3Ag%3Ab7cAAOSwzG9eL14T&autorefresh=true&nma=true&si=SGZ%2Bo%2BAlvD3bDih9AKSjEMGWX54%3D&orig_cvip=true&nordt=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557

      Happy Birthday Albert!

  9. I have the same exact problem with my unit. Does anyone know of a fix?
  10. I just bought an Atari Flashback 9 Deluxe. I followed these steps and the Flashback does not seem to recognize the SD card when I am trying to upgrade the firmware. I am using the SD card that came with the Deluxe version. I bought this system new from eBay. When I took the system out of the box it sounded like something was rattling inside the system but the SD feature seems to work for saves but not for the upgraded firmware. I already tried the option that you had in the other thread about formatting. Any other ideas as to why this isn't working? Thank you!
  11. I am bumping this back up to the top. I will sell CHEAP! I need to have my basement cleared out by the end of this weekend. Please send me a private message asap if interested.
  12. Thank you for letting me know. I deleted several messages so hopefully I can receive messages again.
  13. I have a lot of stuff to sell but you must pick it up at my home in Wentzville, Missouri. I don't have time to ship. I have Atari 2600 games loose and boxed. A large number of 2600 controllers and power supplies. A 2600 system, Astrocade system and games, 2 Colecovision systems, a modified Atari 800XL, multiple 1050 drives, 2 Genesis systems, Intellivision games and systems, a TI computer and the list goes on and on. Please send me a private message if you want to see the items and buy. I am looking to sell ASAP. I will sell at a discounted price.
  14. Newegg is the reason that I have two systems. I originally bought a system from Newegg two weeks ago when eBay had their 20% off sale. Newegg cancelled the order and my daughter cried and cried because I told her that I had bought her the system. eBay then had another coupon sale this past week. It wasn't as good of sale but it was better than buying locally and paying sales tax. I first bought one from Newegg because they were the only dealer who had new systems available at a decent price. I was afraid that they were going to cancel again so I bought a second one from another dealer when they posted after I purchased the one from Newegg. I never expected to get both because so many systems had been cancelled the week before from multiple dealers. Bottom line is now I have 2 systems and I only need one. It has been a long time since I sold on here or eBay. I am just trying to sell this extra one and be done with it. I now have a full time job and am no longer a game dealer. I have no interest in selling like I used to.
