  1. Here's a few suggestions for solving problems if your tape programs don't load. This is a Hong Kong version of the 1010. A chance purchase from eBay. I'll skip the story line for later.... First up ,test as is. Poor loading, most tapes didn't get past a few strings and crashed. BTW you assume that it passed the power up , yes but more on that later. Clean the head, it was very clean to start So no difference. Change the belts, two on this model, as to much is already said on the forum on sourcing belts, I'll add a photo as to what I used. Changed the main drive belt, fairly easy on this model. The other is for the tape counter, left as is. Now an improvement I've got the states and capital tape to almost fully load. Clean the head again, pinch roller and capstan. Not too much progress, breaktime and research. Read up in the Atari service manual found online for the 1010 there are some service procedures and testing, if you have the test tape and equipment etc. Like I'm sure someone does? Lol Next day, (you can rack up some time waiting for the loads) !!! Clean everything again and recheck belts, I diddled around fixing the tape counter, the button wouldn't release after you press it. A bit of clean up and slight sanding of the slide mechanism with a spot of WD40. I'm running the unit less the top cover, so the tape and mechanism is visible. So there's some progress. Also for the heck of it I try a trick that I used to revive old diskettes as a last resort. Clean the media. With a swab and a bit of IPA (not the beer) advance and rewind the tape while holding the swab on the cassette tape,easy to access with the top of the recorder removed Not hardly any residue but did improve the load on some. Noting from the Atari service there is a speed adjustment if you have a scope and test tape. With a marker, I noted the position of the pot. Again easy to access with the top removef. Tweaked it up slightly above the original setting. Now a marked improvement, I keep track of the tape counter when it crashed, the load times are getting longer. There are a few more adjustments of the speed control pot to find the sweet spot. States and capitals tape fully loads. Just for the heck of it I pull apart the main board and remove the capstan/pulley and clean and lubricate. All in all more tapes load. Fairly reliable as I move on to the longer non basic programs. Even the tape that was in the recorder when I received it from the seller works. So now testing continues, that was the reason for getting a workable tape drive. Most ppl inquire why go with tapes at all when the new sio files are available to download. Soon I plan to offer the tapes for sale and some of the older titles, I guess all of them are old, it would be nice to know they work, and the challenge of bringing equipment and software back to life. As far as the belt(s) replacements, I sourced some assorted belts in two widths, one assortment flat style and one square. It used to be fairly easy to source belts during the VCR days, used to have several styles available and I went the route of measuring and ordering each belt for a reel to reel, but it gets expensive. One belt assortment from Ali Express and the other from eBay, turns out they were from the same factory both sources. One other note on the power up, it worked no problem at first,as far as power indication, but by a coincidence, when during testing tapes, smoke rose from the diode rectifier set, quickly unplugged, and a quick check of the power supply, one of my old ones, no output. Luckily, I had another and the 1010 powered up no problem.
  2. Where can I buy new belts for the 1010 Recorder? Also... I'm new in this Forum and I can use some searching tips. I tried searching on all these strings and came up empty. What am I doing wrong? "1010" "1010 recorder" "1010 belt" Scored a 1010 for $20 today! Please read if you can help me with read errors. Thanks! Originally no movement but could hear the motor whirling so I figure just a belt so I offered $20 and the seller accepted. Got it home, Opened it up and could not find the belt!! Missing belt I thought... then taking a closer look the belt is melted onto the circuit board! It was like tar, crazy sticky. Got it all cleaned up nice. I have some replacement cassette belts of various sizes. I replaced the little belt on the tape counter and the main belt. Are there just the two belts? I’m not positive on the belt sizes I had but made sure the tension on new belts was good. All functions now seem to work, RR, FF, Record, Play, etc. However I can’t read or load any tapes. I wrote a 2 line BASIC program out with CSAVE it seemed to work but CLOAD fails with 140 Serial Frame Error or with 143 Checksum Error. Does this point to a wrong size belt or other issue? I did clean the heads. BTW on a game load, ‘States and Capitals’ I can hear some voice audio from the game so the audio channel may be working although maybe with some static noise. The data channel sounds right to me when I wrote out my small program. However, on read the sounds of the data load don’t sound right... sound like deep noises rather than high pitched sounds. It’s been 35 years but I don’t think the sound is right. See other comments on the pictures.
  3. A long, LONG, time ago, on a computer, now dead, and another, and another, and 2 laptops, and finally on a USB drive, also now dead, I put together an instructional guide to taking apart a 410 drive, with emphasis on simplicity, and allowing for a couple improvements and repairs. It has been months since then, but the effort to put the guide out never died, and now today, I can release the guide in a photographic step-by-step format, in numerical order, with sudo-progressive sections, featuring a new solution to drive mechanism stuttering, a comparison of an old, used model, and a new-in-box, old-stock model drive, an electronics repair and problem-analysis section with documentation, and a more condensed, re-assembly guide. I would like to do a complete analysis of the head alignment procedure, and electronics replacement\upgrade\repair with my new oscilloscope, as described in the official documentation, which is included in this guide, and I had intended on making a version of this guide as a video, so I will combine them, but free-time is short right now, so it will have to wait. IT SHOULD BE NOTED THAT NEW BELTS WORK BETTER THAN OLD ONES, SO IF YOU CAN AFFORD IT, YOU SHOULD GET THEM HERE: http://atariage.com/forums/topic/260645-atari-cassette-belts-now-available-1010-410-xc12/ You will also note that the older model drive in this guide is using a few elastics in place of belts, this is not a permanent solution, and should only be used in a pinch, or in a testing situation where the belts would be subject to considerable use, for the sake of your precious belts! I hope it helps at least 1 person, then my effort is worth it. You will need 7-Zip, or another archiving program to extract the files. There are no programs or viruses in these archives, only pictures, text, and pdf. I take no responsibility for what you do, or fail to do, with this guide. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK! And enjoy! http://www.4shared.com/archive/LlNW5P2uca/Final_Cut.html http://www.4shared.com/archive/UonUWLLsei/re-assembly.html http://www.mediafire.com/file/dzd8ks7j7o38boe/Final_Cut.7z http://www.mediafire.com/file/wpjqbzpa34qlj8x/re-assembly.7z

  5. Hi all, I've downloaded several 1010 field service manuals online, but none of them have the silkscreens or the schematics included. I'm trying to repair a couple of the 1010C decks, and it's tough when you can't get any part values. Does anyone have these schematics that they could scan in or link? Thank you in advance!
  6. Just unearthed these two beasts/beauties too. Have no PSUs but the 410 comes built in with an SIO cable. Just a fiver each, please - £5 each or take both for £9. Postage expected to be £4 UK, rest of the world somewhat more - please mail me for a quote together with your location. Note - totally untested as I don't have PSUs for either. That's it - thanks for looking and all the best. BAZ
  7. I recently bought a 1010 cassette player with all the cables etc,. Plugged it in, it played fine/fast forward, rewind, etc,. But the problem is it wont show any video!

  10. Hello everyone, I'm new to the forum, but like pretty much everyone else, grew up on ATARI and haven't ever really left it. I have alot of software on cassette, but my 410 program recorder has given up the ghost recently. Anyone out there have a working ATARI 410, 1010 or XC11/12 cassette drive that they're willing to part with? I've checked CL & ebay of course, but every ad is for a non-working (for parts) or "untested" unit, which I have to assume means "not working". I am willing to pay (not top dollar) of course, as long as you can confirm that it does work (load and save programs). Please let me know if we can work something out. Thanks!
  11. Is it possible? I remember I had a "cassette copier" program which read the cassette data, kept the data in memory and then dumped it to another cassette. I would like something like that , but instead of writing to another cassette, write to a disk file. Another, (very ugly) solution I was thinking about was to load the cassette and use the headphone output of the speakers to connect the my PC to record the sound. The problem is I don't have access to any cassette player, except the Atari 1010. And I want to send a backup of Wordrace to atarimania I've being checking thrift stores for month for a decent priced and working cassette deck, without luck. Thank you
