  1. I leave the cover off and put it in a safe place so it doesn't break.
  2. Crossbow is right about the plastic. I keep the plastic port cover off. I never have 4 people at one time interested in playing a 5200 game 😂 Space Dungeon and Robotron are my favorite 5200 games so I do need the second port from time to time.
  3. The 2 port cover area does come off. It looks like that cover might have been cracked and repaired some point in the past. I think I got a good deal, a 4 port with a 2 port power supply, the best of both worlds.
  4. I have a similar 5200. 4 port with a 2 port power supply. I bought it without the box. I didn't suspect it was different until I got home and the second joystick didn't work. I did some trouble shooting and took of the plastic from cover, and Boom! there were four joystick ports. I don't think the guy that sold it to me knew. He listed it as a 2 port, and that's why I bought it, so I won't have to use the power, video box thing, and I wanted to get the 2600 converter. I still never bought a 2600 adapter to test with it though. I posted about it when I got it, a few years ago. Its cool to hear that someone else has stumbled onto a similar system. I think its funny that the previous owner had no idea it was a 4 port.
  5. Wow, I love the look of most of these watches. I didn't know TI made watches. They need to bring some of these back. I'd buy them.
  6. Can you add me to the list!
  7. I actually tried to do this and burnt my board attempting to replace my first capacitor. 🤷🏽‍♂️ It would be cool if someone still offered this service.
  8. Super excited about this. I just plugged in my 5200 for the first time in a while and bought an adapter from @ikonsgr yesterday. I can't wait to get it and to have a reliable controller for the system. If it all works out I'll be buying a few more.
  9. So here are the pictures of the keyboard. I did see that Beast Electronics has them for about $36 once I figured out the type of keyboard. Thanks for the info!
  10. I recently bought a XEGS. It works well but is missing the space bar. Anyone have an extra? Any idea if this space bar is standard and what keyboard I may be able to steal one from?
