This actually relieves the stress i've had as i considered buying the CD drive. Now i'm all set for carts and if we get CD too, that will be awesome. I bought the Jaguar after reading this thread. Wanted it for a looong time but games were not in the budget #292
Of course you can have the 1 key. Are you sure the keyboard is the same as the one pictured? The squares on the naked keys are the 'key'. If it looks the same then you are in like Flynn. Send me an address in email ([email protected]) and I'll send it right along.
BTW, I just refurbished five 800's, so if you want some advice on that, just holler.
I know you bought your's untested, but in all likelihood it will work when you get it or at least after a little reseating of components. These machines are built like tanks.
I would love the #1 key if you could spare that. Just ordered an 800 like what i had as a little kid, but it's untested and missing the 1 key. It should be a fun project.
