  1. Hi, I'm new to Atari 2600 gaming but have to say I love it. I managed to get hold of a rainbow 2600jr a year ago and AV modded it successfully and it's fantastic fun. A few weeks ago a friend gave me an all black 2600jr that he didn't want and I thought it looked awesome so I thought I'd add it to the collection and mod this one. I found out that this one is pretty rare and that made me want it even more. However, I've run in to a snag. I've modded this one exactly as I did the other one and everything is perfect apart from the sound. There is none!! There's a tiny bit of statistic but nothing else. I've re-flowed every solder joint on the board and nothing still. The board itself is in really good condition and I can't see any corrosion at all or leaked capacitor's. This is a revision 2 board and I'm desperate to get this working. I want this to take pride of place in my collection. Please can anyone help, I'm at a bit of a loss. I'll send as many pics as possible. Thanks in advance. Also, I have heard that sometimes the bottom right capacitors (if they are capacitors) might need changing but I can't find there value. Is this correct??
  2. I have a cartridge of Space War that has a different pin cover from all the other games I have. It has just one long slot instead of three smaller ones, and you can push it in just by pressing it down, which you can't do with the normal covers. I thought it might be one of the 7800-era rereleases by Atari Corp, but it says 1978 Atari Inc, not 1986 Atari Corp, so it seems to not be. I put some pictures of the game, and a picture of what the normal pin cover looks like for reference. Does anyone know anything about this?
  3. Hey guys. I was told you guys are the best place to get help, so Im here asking for it. I have a 5200 with UAV and S video installed. It did not come with a power supply. I went to my local retro gaming store for one. I plugged it in and the red light on the console lit up dimly a few times than went off. I brought the whole system and power supply back to the store. They tried another one. No dice. Longer story short, they sold me an AC Atari computer power supply, not one for the 5200. I have no idea where to start. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  4. Hello, I just bought two retro Sega handheld consoles recently but I just realised that both of their screen are burnt as faulty. So I am look for an experienced repair for new LCD screens to replace them. I will happy to pay for LCD screens from websites like Ebay, Amazon, etc. I will pay you for your service to fix them. I will happy to drop them in Sydney metro but I don't mind to post them in only Australia as well. They are Sega Nomad Genesis and Sega Game Gear consoles. See pictures of them attached.
  5. Hello! I have a probably stupid dilemma, but no matter how I look high or low, all I can find online is how to connect a 2600 to a modern tv. Well, I don't want to connect it to a modern tv. I have a 2002 pk 4184 tv-radio I want to use. Ports on it? Simple question: it has exactly one; an "Ex Ant" (presumably external antenna) port. There's also an onboard antenna of course. Is there any sort of adapter that can connect the RF cable that came with the atari to it? Or am I just going to need to get an antenna box for the atari and find it's "station"? I feel like it would be better to hardwire it if I can. Here's an image of both items:
  6. Hello, I'm currently a newbie to Batari Basic and Visual bB for the Atari 2600 and had only begun to set up both programs. I installed both Batari Basic 1.5 and Visual bB build 568. So far according to the Windows 10 installation method I had extracted both zipped files and placed them together in a folder labeled "Atari2600". From there I launched the Visual bB configuration wizard and ran the install_win batch file. From there I am able to launch the Visual bB however I get error windows claiming to be script errors. I'm able to skip or ignore these messages and go into the program, from there everything appears to work as normal and I'm able to compile my code which at the moment has only been a playfield. When I test my code in the built in emulator, I'm then presented with an error regarding the file which will not allow me to run the code. Could I have possibly made an error while installing both programs or made an error with the configuration wizard? Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated!
  7. Hey guys, so this time I messed up bad, no excuses here. Simply how can I fix this. Also will the product pictured below which is an conductive epoxy help? The game is Zelda for NES.
  8. I’ve had my odyssey for a while now and it’s worked perfectly since purchase, I’ve been using it on a ‘94 or so CRT and just recently bought a Curtis Mathis ‘81 to better fit the era (believe me i looked for a 70s... impossible) but now that it’s hooks to this older tv, it’s grainier (not the main issue) but now the wall won’t show! I’ve heard this being an issue before but it was never one for me so I never knew how to fix it. Also there are so many dials on this tv that I have no clue what they do I’ll attack some images if anyone could help me out
  9. I was thinking of Modding my 2600 JR to output AV video. I did a mod to my JR around a year ago, and i ended up killing my board when i tried changing the jacks on it, and i can't find the original posting for the mod i Did. I saw this AV mod for the JR, and i was wondering how well it worked. https://atariage.com/howto/composite.html I think i remember some people saying the video quality wasn't the best, but I am just looking for something that is reasonably good enough to use. If the link does not work just try googling "atariage 2600 jr av"

  11. Seeking any information on: (Suche nach Informationen:) Wulf Becherer Eugen Baumgartner and software 3D-World. Towards the end of the retail support for the TI99/4a, I purchased - at full retail price- a copy of 3D-World. The documentation I have contains no maker or distributor name but the software contains the above two Germanic names with Copyright in 3D-World claimed by Becherer in the program code. I have found a little known commercial offering by AMERISOFT of 3D-World, and the manual I have and their manual are clearly from the same source, with the same weak translations and spelling errors, but theirs has added a copyright AMERISOFT note. Could this be a European program that has been "lifted" -officially or unofficially- by an American company? Amerisoft do not seem to have built a major presence in the TI World- but sadly neither do Becherer and Baumgartner. If anyone can help shed light on these gentlemen or on the circumstances of the program, I can add a note to the English manual I am recreating for the software. The Amerisoft disk is on wht. thanks S
  12. Somehow my computer doesn't want to build DASM and I don't want to change my setup risking to break other projects. Can anyone create a DASM Windows executable from the latest source code for me?
  13. Hello, I’m wondering if anyone can identify the wood type the Magnavox odyssey uses on its woodgrain patter, I want to duplicate the pattern with another odyssey inspired project. Does anyone know the type or at least a good substitute? It’s a darker woodgrain
  14. I have been a pixel designer for about 10 years now and will guarantee to give your 2600 game the best graphics I possibly can. Any and all graphics in game I am willing to flesh out. Any serious offers can email me at [email protected] and we can talk further in depth. Thank you.
  15. Hi all, When I was a kid I used to go to the local arcade hall and play a platform game that played out in an asia / oriental world where a little guy shot balls in different colors at the enemy creatures. I wanna show it to my kids - but I cant recall the name of the game ? Help !!! =)
  16. Hi guys its been a while since i posted on the forums however, My sound (monitor output sound, don't have rf box) is not working. I did a couple measurements with the multimeter on the POKEY and it seems that it does have voltage output at pin 37 (read that on forum where someone had the same audio problem with their 130xe) Personally, I have a hunch that it's not the POKEY chip itself rather it's a capacitor or resistor in the sound circuit since I'm pretty sure POKEY handles I/O and keyboard scanning (both of which work tested the disk drive with emulation with aspeQt/SIO2PC, however cassette playback does not work.) So I guess my question is should I just skip trying to get a donor POKEY and attempt to troubleshoot the sound circuit (potentially just shotgunning the entire circuit and replacing it all until it works)? I would gladly accept any advice from anyone! Thank you! I have the schematic of all the resistor/capacitor values here http://www.jsobola.atari8.info/derelit/xefsm.pdf
  17. Hy there. I got my very first Jaguar today. Hooked it up and it seem to work fine. Can't test much because I currently have no controller. Now comes the strange part. The start up screen has sound but is missing the growl when the Logo comes up. The music in the startup plays fine tough. Cybermorph starts up with sound effects but no music an no voice samples. What could be my problem? I am aware that the game could have mutet the sound by the previous owner but the partial missing sound seems fishy!

  19. I finally got one of those co-axials in the mail today. I've had a 2600 for a while, but I'd never had the chance to play it until now. I have one of those six-swtitch Ataris, and I plugged its' video/audio plug into the co-axial, which I then plugged into the back of my TV, but I'm not getting anything. Only static... I've noticed that whenever the channel is set to three there's a birght flash when I turn the power on, so I assume that's the channel I'll want it on to play, but there's only static on-screed. I'll supply any other info needed if that's not enough. Does anyone know what else I'll need to do to get this working? P.S., I'm sorry, but you guys probably gets topics like this a lot... EDIT: Also, my TV does have a plug-in for the Atari's AV plug, but it didn't work when I tried plugging it in, hence the use of a co-axial afterwards.
  20. Hello, I recently purchased an atari 2600 junior and i have one of these: And was wondering if i could use this for hooking my atari up. Thanks, Archedhydra
  21. I just picked up a 1010 today and after setting it up it didn't play atari tapes. I thought the belt was broken until i played a music cassette with POKE 54018,52. So than I started fiddling with it and I noticed whenever you press the advance button it gets stuck and the 1010 produces a stuck hum like sound. Any suggestions? -EDIT- fixed. Was bad gear.
  22. So I just downloaded the Atari 800 emulator Rainbow 2.2 and I need some help. I downloaded a Donkey Kong rom to play on the emulator, but I can only use the ctrl button to make Mario jump. What keys do I use for walking? And are keys customizable?
  23. After having Highlander for going on twenty years I finally decided to give it a real go. I have probably only played it for about 30 minutes combined before and never even made it out of the village. After spending some time with it and beating it, I think this is a pretty good game and I would like to see whatever was done with the sequels some day. I do have some questions that I thought some of you might be able to answer: I picked up the Wooden Plank outside the front gate of the village, but I never found a use for it. Does anybody know what it does? If you put in the code to get all the items then you get a Heavy Key. Does anybody know if you can get this in the game normally and if so where it is and what it is used for? This might be the key to open the gate at the end of the canyon that you get off of the gate guard, but I cannot remember what is was called. Is there any way to kill the snipers in the secret canyon path and in the energy dome? I just ran past them after my attempts to kill them with the gas gun proved ineffective. There is a gas gun and some food in the canyon behind the tank. Is there a way to get those without getting shot to hell by the tank? I figured it is a trap, but thought there might be a way to get them. Okay Highlander experts, let's see your knowledge.
  24. Recently my trusty switch switch quit working. It had occurred after moving the difficulty switch from A to B (in space invaders) and an odd screen appeared. Afterwards I turned off the Atari, re-turned on and all that appears is a black screen with two slightly colored thin bars on both sides. I checked the power supply with another Atari and it seems to be working, the cartridge is not an issue of course, and after looking around online I would assume that it is the power/voltage regulator? Any advice would be appreciated- it truly saddens me when such events occur, a light six switch simply isn't a heavy one
  25. i got an atari 2600 recently at a thrift-store, then got a replacement cord. i cleaned the contacts repeatedly, and all i get is a black-screen when a game is inserted. sometimes a flash of the title screen, and without a game i get random stripes, sometimes buzzes, and sometimes black-screen. what do i do? its the wood-front model
