  1. Hello all! I would like to know more about the Professionnal Arcade/Astrocade PSU. I found pictures on the net, of which give two different voltage (the first is for the Bally Professionnal Arcade and the second for the Astrovision Astrocade). So, what does it mean really? Can I replace a dead Bally Professionnal Arcade PSU with a simple 12V AC, as it seems to be what it is for the Astrocade ? If so, which wires will be paired as "live" and which as "neutral"? A more tricky question : can the PSU support 50htz? I know it's meant to, but I heard many time that most PSU made for 60 Htz are fine with 50 htz.

  5. About last year, I fiddled on ePay and won an auction for a Bally Astrocade, with some games, and one joystick. Only now I got enough time to finally look on it, and check out the misfit of the console. When it arrived, it rattled inside. Never a good sight. Turn out it was just a penny, minted in 1981 However, one capacitor was snapped, and I discovered in horror the cooling system of the console - a cheap array of metallic madness. So I worked to make the console workable - note that I had pics of the console working before shipping, but Internet is filled with horror stories of those systems dying after shipping across the US... so a trans-oceanic shipping? Well anyway, today was the final day, where I got a new capacitor - the older one had a leg broken at the base, making it impossible to resold - the capacitor might have exploded from heating. With newspaper proof that it's THERE, and not anywhere else I know it's a dirty cut job, but I only had one drill, one plier and a hammer to do that so... hush I had to look into the attic to find an old travel TV, and THAT one only accepted NTSC-M RF video. I played with one hand to shot the vid, so yeah I suck

  9. Greetings Programs- I have a limited number of the Astrocade S-VIDEO boards for sale, the price is $58.00 which includes domestic USPS Priority tracked shipping and insurance. I have recently sold these on the Yahoo Bally Alley group and am making the remaining ones available on AtariAge. These also work on the Bally Home Library Computer, Professional Arcade and Computer System. I will test each board before I ship it however due to the nature of the Bally/Astrocade line these are final sale. If your console is not working to begin with, these boards are not going to change that. If your only issue is with the quality of the RF video, then this will greatly improve upon that in my opinion, with the added feature of RCA out for audio (MONO sound). All the installation information needed is on the Bally Alley website, to the best of my memory there never was a formal install guide but the original 8bitDomain pictures will show you what you need to do: http://www.ballyalley.com/pics/hardware_pics/s-video_mod/s-video_mod.html You will find pictures of my internal mod on Bally Alley as well, I will include cable ties with each shipment if you plan on doing the internal mod which I originated, unfortunately I have run out of the cable tie mounts but they should be failry easy to pick up. If you run into any issues with the install I will do my best to help, please keep in mind I work and attend school so I may not be able to get back to you right away. I will ship these most likely within a week of receiving payment and will email you when and also the tracking information. You can PM me via AtariAge and I will reply with payment information. If you live outside the United States please let me know and I will see what arrangements can be made. If you would like to purchase more than one board please let me know the # of boards you want and I will give you an updated price combining shipping (I’m using flat rate envelopes). Thank you for your interest. -Michael S-VIDEO - The boards for sale have been slightly revised, the ground (open U) and adjustment screw (now plastic and Philips not slotted).

  14. This may have been posted already but I didn't see it in our forum. I came across this 6 part article on the history of Atari's Night Driver that also has some interesting history on Dave Nutting and Jamie Fenton. Dave Nutting: https://allincolorforaquarter.blogspot.com/2014/07/the-pre-history-of-night-driver-part-4.html Jamie Fenton: https://allincolorforaquarter.blogspot.com/2014/07/the-pre-history-of-night-driver-part-5.html
  15. No longer wanted: Working woodgrain Astrocade or Bally Professional Arcade, etc., to go between my Fairchild VES (Channel F) and Atari VCS. Got a 1977 Bally Professional Arcade. Also ordered and received UltiMulti Cart 2.0 for Astrocade!
  16. Back from vacations... What I found waiting for me at home? Well first thing first... Let's grab a screwdriver and pop this baby open. I heard something clingling inside... That's NOT good, especially after crossing the Atlantic Ocean. What can be damaged inside? Surprise! I wonder if it's just a random coin of if some kid slided a freshly minted new cent coin in back in 1982? Well. It needed to be opened anyway. Dust, and one fat capacitor lead is broken. Also, the cooling system of the IC is just BULLSHIT. Seriously. It's one piece of metal sticked on the IC and linked to the RF shield with thermic paste. The RF shield isn't firm enough and so the piece of metal doesn't keep on the IC. It's a total joke, and just carrying the system around will eventually make this piece slide, leading to two huge potential failures : either the IC fry up from overheating, or the piece make shortcut as it slide around on the PCB. Well this need to be fixed. Probably some adhesive radiators will do. Also, one other problem arise : That some trouble too
