  1. Thanks for all your help, was able to boot it up night before last! The Help key wasn't working so I couldn't do the self test that night, but after reading some of the posts here about fixing the mylar I was able to fix it last night and everything checks out! Next I'll be working on trying to load roms from my pc using my arduino uno as a bridge, have seen several different related projects around here to get me started. Thanks again!
  2. Thanks ACML, u fortunately I discovered that for myself when I ripped one of the feet off. I did try connecting it to a crt and got nothing.
  3. Thanks doc, managed to mangle the case off the psu and sure enough the fuse is not conductive. Looks like I need one of these: https://www.amazon.com/Qty-Fast-Blow-Fuse-250v-GMA5A/dp/B004HLV372 Appreciate the diagnostics!
  4. I am 90% sure, but not just in case here is how I had it set: One thing I thought was a little interesting was when I set it for resistance (with the buzzer) it went off when I connected the prongs... tested some other psus and they didn't do that. But not sure if that's always the case, just seemed odd:
  5. I'm hoping someone here can help me. I apologize if this has been asked elsewhere but I wasn't able to find it. Cleaning out my garage I found an old 1200 XL in the styrofoam from my father-in-law. I plugged it in and tried to turn it on and got nothing, no lights no nothing. Pulled out the multimeter stuck it on the Atari end of the power supply ... nothing. So my questions for you all are #1 is there anything I can do to try to fix the original power supply, I'm fairly comfortable tinkering with electronics/soldering etc. #2 if the answer to number 1 is nope, will this one work? 9v 2a guitar pedal psus on amazon Any help at all would be greatly appreciated , if you need any more additional information please let me know 🙂 Here are some pictures of the original Power Supply if that helps :
