  1. Happy to report my new 600xl has been fully repaired. I used the logic probe with the 800xl/600xl charts and aided my troubleshooting with an atari 5200. I ruled out gti, 14806 and pokey with the 5200. 14806 was bad. After replacing it, I was still getting black screen. I had an extra Rom and basic chips, which I tested. Both ok. Then I checked most of the small ic’s, all ok. I finally got to the pia Ic, it was bad. Machine boot up and is working great. I cleaned it. Cleaned the keyboard and recap it. Thanks all and good luck! Al
  2. Hi, thanks for your response. I do not think there is a SAM’s for the 600xl. It is definitely not in Atarimania. I think can correctly identify each ic based on schematics on both models. Map them correctly. I would like to know if I should expect to see the same readings on the logic probe if I follow the logic chart for the 800xl in the 600xl. The atari 600xl field manual is not very good to troubleshoot. So I am trying to find the best way to find what is wrong with this machine without doing the Swapping dance.... I do not have a scope in my tool box. thanks a lot!!! Al
  3. Question: I also have a 600xl with black screen. Would the Sam’s logic chart for the 800xl be valid for the 600xl? I want to check all the main IC’s with my logic probe to determine the issue. Thanks a lot! AL
  4. I think I am going to be right behind you. Only 8 intv roms no vault updates yet, zero extras so far (6 months into the membership), no news on the secret games........$125.00
  5. Hi, has there even been confirmed tan SIO2SD works in a 400 48k? I have tried all possible settings, including no turbo and no top drive. I am able to get it to load to the menu, then it freezes. This SIO2SD works perfectly in my 800XL. thanks!
  6. Membership includes a secret game (still a secret) and extras. I would be happy to sell my membership extras and secret game and only keep the vault to recover $75, likewise on the intellivision membership extras and secret game. ($75). Raise your hand if anyone is interested, we may be able to get a deal.
  7. Your timing in delivering your promises, vault and communication have not been great. It was probably my mistake in joining both clubs very early on before knowing/understanding both vaults(cv/intv) would become available for $150 to single membership. I have admitted it.. Let us leave it here, it is settled. No need for any further action. I will be expecting the exclusive vault updates, special secret great games and lots extras (?) whatever they are. Hopefully before the annual membership expires Let us move on.
  8. Not at all, I know you from way back. I believe this is a welcoming retrogaming community, where most of us come to have fun and share our hobbies. I apologize if offended anyone unintentionally or my inquiries sounded as unwelcome complaining. I paid $275, I have received the same games as you have. Hopefully you can see the difference now. I will address my situation with the club mgrs. privately. Thanks a lot to all. !

  10. Guys, I was one of the first supporters of both clubs back in December or January. Thanks to your replies, I now see my problem. I overpaid or was overcharged for the content I will receive, vault and games. My case is different than yours, please do not pre-judge. I was just truly trying to understand the content. I am sure my specific issue will be addressed by the club fairly once they review my account.
  11. I just wish all these rules would have been identified upfront clearly and transparently. Here I am 4 months into the year and after payment, still no clarity on what It is I purchased. Only questions, no concrete answers.
