  1. I purchased an Atari 130XE on Ebay back in 2001 and used it quite a bit for a couple of years until I upgraded my PC and no longer had a serial port and couldn't use APE as a file server. It has been put up since 2002/3 and when I got it out recently to try out again, I discovered the video is trash. I didn't show the RF video but it looks like the composite photos only more blurry. Below are photos of the Pac-Man title screen and the boot screen in composite and s-video (custom cable using chroma and luma signals) and I have also included the same screens from my Sophia DVI mode for reference. Pardon the "Input out of range" box in the middle of the Sophia photos. My monitor doesn't like the signal. Can someone give me suggestions on why my Composite and separated video look like crap? The chroma/luma (separated or S-Video) video jumps and displays wavy color distortions like RF interference but this wasn't present when I packed up the computer in the early 2000s. Prior to packing up, the composite was the video mode I used most and it looked good. Now it's vertical gray bars. Could this all be due to the RF Modulator going south on me? I understand some signals (composite) come from the modulator but can that also inject color garbage into the CHROMA signal? Boot screen using bad s-video (chroma/luma separated video) (custom cable) Boot screen using bad Composite (should be blue but has gray bars) Boot screen from Sophia DVI (monitor shows input out of range error) Pac-man title using bad S-video/separated video Pac-man title using bad composite video Pac-man title using Sophia DVI (monitor doesn't like DVI signal)
  2. I have some hardware for sale in the Marketplace if anyone is interested: Atari 8-Bit Computer Hardware For Sale
  3. I am selling all the components and the following software as one bundle, unless you let me know what you want and how much you want to pay for a certain item. This was all found in my inlaws home and as of right now, untested. I am going to start testing some items this week. I will take offers as I dont know what it is worth. I dont have the time to separate and list everything by itself. After I get say 4-5 offers, I will sell it to whoever wants it most. I feel here, it will go to people wanting items for their own, not just a reseller although I know you will sell items you dont need. Ok, this is what I found for software. Almost everything has the box, disk or cartridge, and manual. Most boxes are not great, but they are there. Not faded, but just smooshed.

  4. I have a variety of Atari 8-Bit Computer items up for sale: eBay Items For Sale More items going up shortly including: • 400 Computer System (16K) • 800XL Computer System with 6 Game Cartridges • 2 x Trak-Ball Controllers Make me an offer. Thanks for looking.
  5. I started similar topic on Polish Atari Area. http://www.atari.org.pl/forum/viewtopic.php?id=13760 I have crazy idea. What about STM32 cartridge. It will make faster only some of CPU instructions so Atari will stays Atari. For demos or to have hundred sprites on screen...? Why STM32? Its cheaper than ATMEL and more common than PIC. It is 32bit... Bigger EEPROM, RAM in MCU. There will be no new graphics, no new sound. Only massive CPU upgrade but only for some instructions. For example 256 sprites, fast 3d or vector, game with 128 sprites and sample playback on pokey (as you know MOD on Pokey eats CPU). Or I can image pictures in lot of colors (multiple pages switching). So they will be not blinking... I know there is Veronica. It is beautiful but price of 65816 is higher than STM32 (few cents max to 10 dollars). I know there is very nice Tomek8 but as I wrote PIC is not so powerful as same priced STM32... And as bonus you can get STM32 in huge quantities... I somewhere read something exactly same exists for ColecoVision or 2600... For example 6502 emulator on STM32: GITHUB https://github.com/BigEd/a6502 "On that dev board, the CPU runs at 168MHz and the emulated speed of the 6502 is 18MHz." Thats almost 10x+ faster as original Atari. And there is also 180MHz model STM32... Price is 10Euro... for STM32F407VGT6: 32 Bit Microcontroller, Ethernet MAC, Camera Interface, ARM Cortex-M4, 168 MHz, 1 MB, 196 KB, 100 Maybe we can have Ethernet too on that cartridge for multiplayer games. I can imagine NUMEN engine shooter and LANPARTY! like QUAKE! Or DUNE2 / Settlers 2 game !!! Multiplayer / online... This will adds new dimension to our ATARIs... Playing games together. New speed for CPU. Lot of sprites, pokey sample playback etc etc... So it will be turbocard but also will accelerate graphics and sound. Plus online multiplayer gaming or local LAN party as bonus. Bad or good idea? Lets brainstorm this. I can imagine games in hires with huge sprites. Or 160x200 games with ultra fast scrolling (space shooter) for example. Or vector game with samples. Or 3D demo looking almost like from Amiga 500... When price of cartridge will be 20-30Euro. Everyone will be able to buy it.
  6. Looking to buy a working 130XE and STFM-series ST, preferably an STe. No discolored units/keyboards please. Feel free to post pics here and/or PM of what you have. Thanks so much in advance!
  7. There is a 130XE on eBay listed to have a 'Best Heavy Upgrade" and has a toggle switch in the upper left corner of the top of the console. Seller has no idea what it is. I looked on the Best site and found nothing like that. Any ideas?
  8. Hello, I recently acquired a 130XE that works great, the only problem is that there are faint bands/lines on the left side of the screen. I originally used an S-Video cable from eBay and thought the problem was with my LCD monitor, but they also show up when I use my Commodore 1084S Amiga monitor and a Chroma/Luma cable. I can adjust the color/contrast/brightness and that helps until the background color changes and they are visible again. After reading through the forums I found a few posts regarding 9 lines on the left side of the screen on a 5200 S-Video mod being "ANTIC noise during a DRAM refresh" and I am guessing I have the same problem. Anybody have any ideas on a fix? I have the later revision with 64x4 RAM. I've attached pics showing the lines, I turned up the contrast to make them more visible to the camera. Other Topic: http://atariage.com/forums/topic/218246-s-video-mod-9-vertical-lines-on-left-side/ Thanks!
  9. Hi, I recently got a couple of "dead" 130XE's thrown in as part of a deal. The first 130XE only powers the RED keyboard LED, and doesn't output a TV signal (can't be found with the TV's auto-tune). It's also playing dead when I try it with a SysCheck board, so I am putting it aside for the moment. The second 130XE can be tuned in, but gives no picture. When I try it with a SysCheck board, I get U14 marked as bad. So, I need to get some more RAM chips. Is there any reason I should get anything other than 4164 dips? What I'm trying to ask is, are there any mods that involve replacing the 4164 chips with some other chips, giving more available memory? I'm guessing that this would be the ideal time to do such an upgrade, rather than ordering a load of 4164's that I don't need. I should point out both 130XE's have 16*4164 chips, so I would probably order 32 * 4164 to simplify shipping, etc. My plan is to just replace the defective U14, but I don't know if the other bank of memory (the extra 64K of a 130XE) has defects (I don't think this is tested by the SysCheck board - though I think it should be!). I don't think I can test this until U14 has been replaced. Although I have seen a lot of advice saying it's best to replace all the RAM chips, I don't want to do this unless absolutely necessary, as they are all soldered on. On the other hand, if there is a mod that involves replacing them all with another set of RAM chips, this might be a good time to do so (if you see what I mean). Finally, the second 130XE runs quite well with the SysCheck board plugged in (I'm really pleased with the SysCheck board, btw). I was playing Mercenary on it (48K and high res versions) from disk, and the keyboard is fine, apart from the 'H' and 'J' keys not working. I'm tempted to try swapping the keyboard from the set aside 130XE, but I don't want to do too much unplugging/plugging as I have heard that 130XE keyboards can be quite fragile. Any advice on the best RAM chips, and keyboard swapping strategy would be appreciated. Thanks!
  10. A couple of weeks ago I purchased a beaten set of 8bit machines. One of them, a 130XE, booted into an unknown (to me that is) OS: After booting the ROM, the machine doesn't respond to anything, but the RESET button. I've contacted a couple of folks that could know more about this, but that came up empty, hence this post. A couple more shots of the inside of the system with things that stood out (to me): Anyone got some more info on this? I plan on creating a dump somewhere next week, but any info on the ROM is welcome. Kind regards, Senor Rossie P.S. Happy New Year !
  11. I have revived a recently acquired 130XE that needed memory swaps, keyboard mylar fixes, and extreme de-yellowing of the case and keys. Previously it was ready for the trash bin, now it's 100% functional and looks terrific! Here's the only issue... the "ATARI 130XE" badge on the front/top of the case looks really crappy on the left side (where it says ATARI in red and has the silver Fuji logo). It looks badly faded/discolored for about 1/3 of the length of the badge (just past the word ATARI ) and the rest of the badge is fine. I have been attempting various ways to replicate the badge and none of them have yielded anything even close to acceptable yet. Again, this thing went from looking like a total piece of non-working junk to working and "almost mint looking" with the exception of this darn badge issue. I saw some threads here related to badges but they were quite old, so I thought I'd put out the request anew. Does anybody have a working solution for a really good Atari 130XE badge replication process? Or even better yet, does somebody have an extra 130XE badge (perhaps could be taken off of a parts machine?) Or, even a 65XE badge could work because I could splice it since the 130XE portion of the badge i have looks fine. Appreciate any help on this matter. It's the last piece of the puzzle to get this machine "fully restored". Thanks! -Eric
  12. Folks, I have a pile of trade/sale fodder that needs to hit ePay or trade for other stuff I do not have. I am open to offers for cash and VERY open to trades. The only thing I have a definite price range on is the 7800 as I need to *try* and get what I paid for it. I have a LOT of stuff to put up, so I will slowly add to this post and, hopefully, edit as stuff gets sold/traded. I have attached photos.

  13. Need some troubleshooting advice. Just re-socketed Pokey on my 130XE, since I replaced the square pins on the stereo board with round ones (the board had previously been pushed into the subsequently ruined machine socket). Work on the stereo board went well, and I replaced the machine socket on the motherboard with a nice precision one. No lifted traces or any other nasties... very clean job. However, when I came to test everything after reassembly, the keyboard's stone dead. Well - not quite: pressing either shift key actually registers as the "Break" key, which is rather disconcerting. All other keys - apart from Reset - are totally unresponsive. I've tried different keyboards, but the problem's definitely on the motherboard. Checked for shorts, continuity, etc... found nothing. I'm wondering if the Break / Shift thing offers a clue; maybe one of the support chips gone? I've very closely scrutinized the keyboard scan pins which are connected to the 4051s... no visual or continuity issues there. Seems everything I touch turns to s**t at the moment, but I'd like to get this fixed as I put a hell of a lot of work into this machine.
  14. I took a chance on an 130XE on eBay no video cable or power supply. I have tested it with the power supply I made for my 800XL and the video cable from the same that only has composite video and audio. If I buy a cable that has separate luma and chroma, that should improve the video, right? Thevideo is already better than on the 800XL, but since I need to buy a cable anyway, I want to get something optimal.
  15. Hi everyone I now have a reason to really smile Just got a great deal on a 130XE, which unless my memory is fading, is the first one I ever owned. I was too cheap to buy one when they first came out, and at the time was buying up all the 800XL's for $99 from ToysrUs before they disappeared. Any way I was doing my normal semi-daily check of Ebay items for sale, and stumbled across a deal that at first I couldn't believe. It was an almost brand new looking 130XE with all the accessories still in its original box with all the original Styrofoam inserts and inner packaging. And it came with a good power supply plus an RF switch box and cable. And probably the best thing of all it powered up and works like a charm. Total cost with shipping came to $102.00 Came with one of the better Power Supplies. Yep still has the protective film over the name plate. And I was very surprised how nice the keyboard felt on this guy. Has a pretty solid feel, not mushy at all The Serial Number on the computer matched the one on the box (A1 541111608 M). It's in such great condition I don't want to mess with it . I'm afraid no TransKey is going into this baby. - Michael
  16. There is a lot of good advice on the forum about fixing 130XE's with broken memories. When mine failed I found all the information I needed here and here, but there are many other good posts too. Thanks to everyone who has posted on this topic. I'm not very experienced with hardware, and there is no way I could have repaired my machine without your guidance. Just for the record, here's a description of the fault and repair in pictures: The machine starting booting to the ROM/RAM test. Case opened, showing the 16 RAM chips on the left hand side. Original chips. One is an NEC 4164, but the other fifteen are the notorious MT 4264's. Chips removed by snipping the pins, withdrawing them one at a time with a soldering iron and tweezers, and finally clearing the holes with a solder sucker. Sockets soldered in place and new chips installed. I chose 41256's to give me the easy option to upgrade the machine to 320K in future. Fixed! I still have one question on my mind. Opinions vary on whether it is necessary to tie the unused address line (A8, pin 1) on the 41256's to ground (or possibly I have misinterpreted the opinions). I have not done this yet, but the machine has run perfectly well for days on end. This seems to imply that the chips respond in a predictable manner to disconnected address lines. Can anyone confirm if this is the case?
