    7800 Qix

    I'm in for a cart let me know.
  2. I have three consoles all three worked with Pacman Collection. One was very fidgety with it but did let it play - maybe the unit was warm by then.
  3. Atari 7800.... to a wii... I did Gaming PCs though in between, also picked up a trs-80 because the one my parents had disappeared at some point.
  4. I'm fine we lost power for about 12 hours - and after the storm at that- no big trees on the house or anything.

      Glad you're okay!

      Well, tell Jen that I'm bringing over Twister (the movie, not the game) and not to drink ALL of the coffee. Wait, I have another call.

  5. Would you Like a picture of mine on boot up... it really looks JUST like the JOUST except the red line. I promise ... 20160823_215647.mp4 It's NOT upside down on my TV- the AA messageboard picture handler does that... I don't know why.
  6. This is the board end, the other end has no pictures but was worse. most of the damage terminates at the D9 plug at the transformer- Also pictured is the board where the melting plug pulled a header pin.
  7. So J101 was 1 pin off the previously repaired connector was NOT keyed so he didn't notice, 13Vac was hot shorted to 9Vac ... the result was the two 13V wires fusing and dead shorting from the backboard to the transformer. So I'm down 1/3 of the wiring harness (only the blue-white wires cooked, and possibly a WPS transformer for Whitewater... *sigh*
  8. My husband friend the WhiteWater... We did the lithium conversion to the battery- he tested it before screwing the board all the way in, it worked.... then- THEN... a screw fell out... he picked it up and put it in the wrong hole - (Near the hole by j202) He shorted the machine replaced fuses F105, F106- and we got verticle lines on the DMD and we lost music and voice... Pulled the boards - took pictures looked them over... put everything back in and had nothing, no power past the Power controller board (LED 7 lit) and the Topper chaser board (2 leds of some # lit) THEN J101 MELTED!!! Aaaaahhhhhhhhhh
  9. Anyhow- the JOUST intro is normal except the red line on the far left- that might be a TV issue...
  10. cart/I have a 7800 combo that glitches- choplifter -you can find it in the search
  11. ...Husband fried my WhiteWater pinball machine...

  12. I swore I read everything, I must be getting old and missed the price...?
  13. Based on your info it's the connector and you need to tighten the contacts (ever so slightly)
  14. put in the cart and tilt forward, if that works great. if not tip back (still holding) if that works great... one of these directions should work and it means the connectors in the 7800 are 'squishy' and not tight enough- there are tutorials for fixing that.
  15. Put that nonworking one back in and have it pushed forward (or back) and power on- if it comes up and stays you have a squishy cart connector. Try both forwards and back- I have over 400 carts and only one was 'bad' (it got a salt water or soda bath in it's distant past)
  16. http://www.atariguide.com/ left side of the screen '7800 power supply' I have one form them and it's perfect. They have expensive controllers, look more here.
  17. Check heat issues- either something is heating up and shorting closed or ??? I have a 7800 that cannot play Choplifter... the 'warmer' the console the quicker it would fail to play... I have one that only plays 2600 games ... I guess Maria died... and I have one that plays perfectly even the 'sometimes non-compatible' ones
  18. That was YEARS ago- still have it though... um...I'll look back and try to find it. um... here's one in GBP... I'm sure they can be found http://www.juzee.com/t-shirts/space-invaders-grey.html Google: "Space Invaders" "Don't Shoot" shirt Here's another style: http://www.use.com/Hell_Yeah_Space_Invaders_Dont_Shoot_T_Shirt_4579b8fb957550633a33#photo=1 I may have sent someone money for it a long time ago that was local to where they were being printed. neotokeo2001 comes to mind... Why are all of them form GB? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/DONT-SHOOT-VINTAGE-80S-ARCADE-GAMER-NERD-FUNNY-T-SHIRT-/221200135402
  19. Apology accepted, That was -me- as a Travi host years and years ago- I'm one of the handful of female Atari enthusiast- (I also game both TT and PC...).
