  1. Hello, I found this light sixer with this serial number. Can anyone tell me if is it an original serial number? Thanks
  2. Hey, all... I recently bought a Light Sixer that posted about in another thread, trying to figure out where it was made (no serial number sticker). In researching that, I found one other person whose L6 has the same "Property Of Atari Inc" hot stamp on the interior of the casing, and theirs also has a weird orange (and blue?) marking on the bottom of the casing, where the serial sticker would be. Here's their thread: http://atariage.com/forums/topic/198685-light-sixer-question/. When I bought mine, I figured it was just wear-and-tear from the 30 years since it was made, and mine wiped off easily before I realized it wasn't. But finding someone else whose L6 has 1) No sticker, 2) "Property Of Atari" hot stamp, and 3) THE SAME orange marking mine had tells me that the marking means something, and came from Atari that way. Someone here has to have the knowledge of what those markings were for, and where they were used. There's also a blue slash across the paper ticket taped to the shielding, like the one in this thread: http://atariage.com/forums/topic/165050-does-every-atari-have-this/?do=findComment&comment=2038801 What does that orange/blue scribble mean? Is it related to the "Property Of Atari" hotstamp and the fact that neither of these have a serial sticker? Where were these made? Were these the ones issued for promo kiosks? Seems close to Curt Vendel's recollection, but not spot-on what he was saying: http://atariage.com/forums/topic/19000-how-rare-is-the-atari-vcs-cx2600-sunnyvale-edition/page-2 I've attached the relevant "orange mark" photo from that first linked thread (not taking credit for it!) ----- Here's the data on my console: Date stamp on casing - “470" Taped Paper on shielding: - Nov 14 1980 Green Side of Board: C012173 Rev. B Stamped on interior top of casing: (Left side) L&W G C010307-A (Right Side) Property Of Atari Inc. Sunnyvale, CA 94086
  3. Hello, I found this light sixer with this serial number. Can anyone tell me if is it an original serial number?
  4. Hi @ all, i'm new to atari 28 years old and my first console was a SEGA Master System 2. Atari 2600 was a few years before my time;) but i wanted to give it a try and have some retro fun. So i bought a big package containing a woodgrain light sixer, a Junior, 8 controllers and 35 games. So far so good... I connected the antenna cable of the Junior to my television (modern LG Flatscreen) and it worked perfectly. Colors and sound were all right. But the light sixer seems to have some problems. As far as i know they both use RF and both should output the same picture to my tv. But the light sixer just gives a bad picture with totally wrong colors (always the same way wrong.... see Pictures) or just Grey (and even that very poor). I tríed it on different channels (switch A-B on the console and different settings on the tv) and i even tried it on an old TV (also see pictures) Had anyone this problems too? Is something broken? What could it be? Can it be repaierd? I planned to do a AV Mod. I already ordered this kit (still waiting for it) http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Atari-2600-7800-A-V-Composite-Video-Mod-Kit-NTSC-PAL-DIY-/171149875461?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item27d953d905 Could this mod help with the picture even if it's that bad rigjt now? I'm unsure what to do because the light sixer should already output the same Picture as the Junior... and if i do this mod and it's still the same the broken light sixer is even less worth and i put the work into it for nothing Any idears? EDIT: i only got one PSU with both consoles... no idear if it could make a difference... it's one like this http://www.konsolenkost.de/images/produkte/i90/9030262.jpg http://www.konsolenkost.de/images/produkte/i90/9030262-1.jpg EDIT: as far as i know my light sixer should be PAL. At least the seller told me that. Sadly there's no sicker on the back... how can i find out if the light sixer is PAL or NTSC? Any internal part that Shows this clear? If the console is NTSC i contact the seller and want my Money back.

  6. My Atari 2600 Light Sixer Goes B&W When Tapped or slightly moved. Sometimes, if I toggle the B&W/Color switch, the color comes, back. Other times it doesn't. Sometimes will go to color if I toggle the switch from color to B&W, indicating that it seems to be more something loose/failing on the PCB rather than the toggle switches themselves. Any suggestions at what I should be looking at first? Thank you.
  7. Hello everyone, I just got a hold of a light sixer shell and it's not exactly in the greatest condition, but I was hoping to get some help and opinions on restoring it. I am needing some advice about the bezel though; I know I can replace it, but I'm running on a tight budget and was hoping to touch it up if possible, but I think it's beyond saving now, so I figured it wouldn't hurt to ask first. As you can see, there is some serious bubbling going on around the lettering, but I'm at a loss as to what I can do about it. I can't get a good shot of the wood grain at the moment, but it's very faded and yellow looking, so I will upload pictures of it later. Any suggestions would be extremely helpful. One more question would be does anybody know if Brad over at Best-Electronics sell light sixer bezels? Thanks
  8. I recently picked up a Light Sixer CX-2600 but it came in a box that says Atari 2400. I have not been able to find any info on the existence of such a thing. Did they just make the boxes but not the systems? The only unique thing on the box says "Distributed in Canada by Irwin Electronics" so could this be special packaging used just in Canada?
