  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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!
  4. 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?

    Atari XEGS Space Bar

    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?

  7. Ran across a Sega Neptune for sale. Wasnt it a prototype? Is this just a Genesis mocked up to look like a Neptune? https://articulo.mercadolibre.com.mx/MLM-622729874-sega-neptune-_JM
  8. Where can I buy these Venezuelan games?
  9. Im officially now a member of the Channel F club! I picked up a boxed system and 2 boxed games for $50. It was an hour and a half round trip but I figured it was worth it at this price. The system was untested. I took my chances and got lucky,it works perfectly. I did notice that sometimes there is a blue line on the screen which goes away if i reinsert the cartridge. Is this normal?
  10. I just found a Channel F Model 1 for sale locally. It’s in good condition with a nice box. It’s only $60. My question is, what are the chances of this working? The guy says he doesn’t know how to test it but it did work 30 years ago.
  11. I ran across this today about a guy making a steampunk Sega SMS system. One line in the article stated that he tried to find a way to load games via phonograph. I dont think he was successful. Just curious, since 2600 games are so small couldnt this work on an Atari? The supercharger uses cassettes, but couldnt smaller games run off a record? I dont see why youd want to except to show you could. Just am interesting thought. A steampunk 2600 or 7800 would be cool 🤔 https://kotaku.com/artist-turns-sega-mega-drive-into-the-steampunkiest-con-1831617855

    Consolized Lynx

    Just ran across this video of a consolized Lynx. It looks super amazing. HDMI output, optional HD. Makes me wish I was more handy and could build one. I thought I'd share. Below is the 3rd video. Fast forward to the end and you can see it in action. The first 2 videos show the build. https://youtu.be/VT7PHMNbB2o?list=PL61EQ6eXcOzEpHyANvyq2SJlwqlmU-X4R Can anyone here build and send me one? Name your price $$$
