  1. Just curious on this topic. I recently purchased a Sears SVA unit from an AA member, and shortly after, another one on eBay. I immediately noticed there was a difference in the gold color of the controllers, on/off switch and reset button between the two units. I took out a third SSVA unit I had, sure enough there was. That one was more silver in color than the other two. All three of these units are original to my best knowledge. Moving on to the Mattel unit, then the Sylvania and finally my Tandy unit. The Sylvania has a very metallic/silver look. The Tandy is more gold shaded, with the Mattel being close to the same. Whereas the Sears units actually look more gold in color, but different shades between production years. Was this the case with these models, all being sold under different labels, or am I just seeing things? If there are color variations in the controllers, what years are the deepest color gold? I would think first generation models? More fun INTV triva...😀 Thanks for the clarification. JR
  2. I'm making this thread because I'm not a big fan of the SVA 2 controllers and I'm working on replacing them. The hunt for joysticks is going just fine, as there are many of those made for the 2600, and they all seem to work more or less identically on the SVA 2. Where I'm having a huge difficulty is in getting working paddles. The SVA 2 controllers work as paddles, but they are not as comfortable to me as are the official 2600 paddles. The problem is that the official paddles are difficult. In Warlords, they work like on the 2600, where you plug them into ports 1 and 2 and they control players 3 and 4, but they also require one to have the button option of the system set to 'Joystick', which means I cannot use one set of atari paddles and the two SVA 2 controllers to make 4 players. That's not a big deal for me, since I'll be buying another set of paddles, but a bigger problem is Breakout. It only picks up one of the official paddles when in port 1, and when in port 2 there is no effect. Maybe it actually works fine in port 2 as a player 3/4 control, but I have not yet seen this happen. There are some other inconsistencies, but nothing yet that has affected the games (Kaboom plays properly, for example). I just want to understand why paddles are so tempermental on the SVA 2, and to learn of what controllers will work properly on the system. It looks like some games work fine with two sets of atari paddles, but what should I do for games that do not work this way on an SVA 2? And are there any other weird things I should know about the SVA 2?
  3. Just as the title states, what are your favorite/top pong consoles? I ask this, for I have been ever increasingly interested in purchasing a pong console- and while an Atari branded one is nice in terms of "authenticness", there are a vast amount of other consoles varying from look, design, games etc. As pong museum says, "and the ball was square . . ." haha

    Unfortunately I don't have the Sears manual, and I'm in no hurry to get one.

  6. ....mine broke & I'm still kicking myself over it
  7. I'm considering acquiring a Video Arcade II system.. Does anyone know how the cartridge slot size compares to the Atari consoles? Specifically, will it accommodate Red Label, Activision, Imagic Blue Labels, and other larger cartridge types? Or is it more akin to a sixer?
  8. Thrift Store: $5 each Cosmetically, both are in great shape. They use those huge C and/or D batteries and might be able to use a ac adapter as well. Other than that, they use RF. Anyone know what their values are? I'm assuming not a whole lot, but I don't even see any past ebay or previous sale listings online
  9. Hello! Been lurking here a bit and find the game inventory very handy, as well as the forums. I am cleaning out my stuff and have a Sears Video Arcade II- does it have the same power specs as the 2600? I also have a 5200 I need to test out. I have an Atari branded power supply, labeled AC Adaper Model No. C017539. Google says it's for the Atari Modem- would this work on anything else? Thanks in advance to anyone that can help
  10. Not too long ago I didn't even own a heavy sixer. First I found my keeper and then quickly stumbled across two more. One I bought for the sears controllers it came with (my keeper is a tele-games) and the other I found on craigslist and grabbed for the CX-10's. I'm selling one of the two here (buyers choice) along with a pair of original CX-10's, Paddles, driving controllers and a few games. Auction started at 99 cents with no reserve and free shipping! eBay Auction -- Item Number: 301710555850
  11. Greetings all, I have a CIB Sears Demons to Diamonds. The box is in ok shape with some minor bumps and sticker damage, the cart has acti-plaque, the instructions are there as well. I do not have pictures at the moment, but I will post some as soon as I am able. I am curious as to rarity of this item as I am reading various degrees if difficulty finding a boxed version.

  13. I picked up a copy of Superman from a local pawn shop today for FREE, if you can believe it. I checked the rarity guides & can't find it. Unless I'm missing something. Can someone help me determine approximate value & rarity? See Photo
  14. Is anyone else running into audio/video popping when using a Suncom Tac2 with a Sears Video Arcade II? It only happens when I press the orange buttons on either side of the controller. The 4 switch woody 2600 I have has no issues with it. I wonder if it's a power/feedback issue with that specific model. It's kind of comical to watch the screen jump and audio crackle in Berzerk every time you shoot an alien. Also the regular Atari controllers (cx-40?) do not have the issue. I am using a non-Atari branded 9VDC 1A adapter with polarity like (-)-©-(+). Wondering if maybe it's a power issue, although the Arcade II exhibits no other problems with any other devices. There seems to be zero consensus on what the ideal V/A or even polarity or AC/DC should be on these forums and interwebs for this console but I do believe it has to have a bridge rectifier if it can handle both VDC and VAC adapters. I just got this unit with the Tac2 over the weekend locally so I have no idea if it ever didn't do this with the tac2. My guess is it's just the fact that it's a clone that wasn't completely vetted with 3rd party accessories since it was originally destined to be the 2800 in Japan.
  15. So I bought a sears heavy sixer in the box on ebay about eight months ago and I have some questions about the contents of the box. The controllers that came with the box appear to be cx-40's so I was wondering if any of the sears heavy sixer's came with cx-40's originally or if the controllers I got were replacements. I also didn't get target fun with the box so I was wondering if that came cart only or cib. I am missing the original power adapter and TV switch box so I doubt I would ever actually complete it, (the box is in fairly poor condition anyway) but I am still curious about it. What do you guys think about the sears heavy sixer? I personally love the silver control panel and simulated walnut wood grain. I honestly like the aesthetic better then the regular atari vcs. For $90+s&h in box I think it was well worth it.
  16. Hm, interesting, so it seems I have 90 Atari loose cartridges including some duplicates/variations. For some reason I thought I had more. Not surprisingly, there are a lot of common cartridges here. You have your standard Combat, Air-Sea Battle, Yars Revenge, Defender, Asteroids, Missile Command, Pac-Man, Space Invaders, Berzerk, and maybe Adventure. 90% of the people that have an Atari probably have 3 or more of those in their collection. Those are the mainstays. I have the common paddle games there like Warlods, Video Olympics, Breakout, Super-Breakout, and Night Driver. Then there's the usual second wave of (arcade) games such as Ms Pac-Man, Galaxian, Phoenix, Moon Patrol, Jungle Hunt, Centipede and Pole Position. Again this is the group that probably most people have in their collection as well, common but also good quality titles. Followed by the sporadic wave of newer titles like Battlezone, Dig Dug, Mario Bros, Millipede, Crystal Castles, and Kangaroo. Pretty common ones and in my mind, all these titles are well worth having. I remember seeing all of these in the stores when I was a kid and even got to play many of them when some of my friends or classmates lent them to me. I noticed that I have Gremlins in there. I remember hunting for this one high and low, and found it a box of what must have been 500 Asteroids, Defender and Space Invaders cartridges at some video game store in Kensington Market in downtown Toronto. Got a pretty good deal on it as well. Occasionally I will run into a store where the owner has no real sense of the worth of the cartridges or just wants to get rid of it. Mind you, I've had people blatantly wanting to rip me off just to see how high I will go. Unfortunately the game Gremlins isn't very good. Then there's a group of cartridges that came out in the late 80s like Solaris, Desert Falcon, Super Football, Jr. Pac-Man, Sprint Master, and Realsports Boxing. I recall buying these when I came to Canada at fairly good prices ($20-$30 I believe at the time). Pretty good titles, I always liked Desert Falcon (I seem to be the minority), Solaris (probably the most advanced game in my mind) and Realsports Boxing. There are a few titles that I wasn't really aware of until I re-started my collection like Radar Lock, Road Runner, Off-the Wall, Midnight Magic, Crossbow, and Double Dunk. I have some Sears titles, although I keep looking for Submarine Commander. The thing that has puzzled me how some of the more obscure crappier older Atari games like Game of Concentration are being sold for higher prices than what I have accustomed seeing. Many of the older titles are pretty poor and don't hold my interest for more than a few minutes at a time. There are few where I turned it on and then right away turned it off (Math Grand Prix, Home Run, etc) . I can deal with bad graphics and sounds, but poor gameplay won't get my time. There's been a few titles that I looked for a long time like Track&Field, Taz and Road Runner. I probably paid more for them than I should, but after a while I just tired looking for a good deal. I play T&T quite a bit and Road Runner is actually pretty fun to play. Taz is not that good. I don't really care for variants of the games based on label, or go out of my way to collect the Coleco or Parker Brother re-issues by Atari. The ones I have usually came when I bought bundles from someone privately. I still keep an eye out for games like Pengo, Quadrun or Video Cube and I sometimes think, "hell, just pay for it on eBay and get it over with". With respect to any of the older titles that I'm missing, ifI stumble upon on it when I browse at stores I may just buy it on the spot. It's getting to the point where many times I'm not totally sure what I'm missing. Used to have a list on my phone (even created a Windows Phone app in Visual Studio at some to manage it) but I haven't kept my wishlist up-to-date. Also wish I had a Indy 500 racing controller, but I have a feeling I'd play it like once or twice and then put it away. A bit of a shame the quality of the labels of many of the cartridges that I have. Got to give Atari credit for the artwork on their games. Interesting to see all the variations of the Atari cartridges.
  17. I bought a Sears Heavy Sixer and it worked before I cleaned it all up. Then it wouldn't work at all. Any suggestions? Power supply and RF cable are good. I thought it might be the on/off switch. So I removed it and I broke one of the copper pieces that is in the plastic part of the switch. All the soldering looks good. I'm frustrated and I'm not sure what or how to test stuff with a multimeter. I have a digital and analog multimeter but I am a newbie and don't know what to look for so any helpful hints are greatly appreciated. Thanks
  18. I'm pretty serious about selling my recently acquired Atari 2600 Superman cart labeled with the Sears Tele-games logo. Photos attached are of the cart. Serious offers only, plz! I hold the option to refuse all proposed offers, close the offer, and keep the cart for myself; no offense to any interested parties. I would prefer to NOT go through any auction sites & have them rake me over the coals with fees & whatnot. I will accept payment through PayPal only! No other method, please! (Just want to ensure everyone gets what they want.) I have received a few offers already, just want to open it up to as many collectors as possible since this appears to be a diamond in the rough & in all fairness, everyone deserves a chance.

Pending - 4 Switch Woody with original atari power supply - tested and working $29 Also available are 2 CX-40 joysticks $8 each and 1 set of paddles (no jitter) for $5.

  20. I got another Sears Video Arcade. If anyone is looking for one of these, PM me. I haven't had a chance to test all the buttons on both controllers, but it passes an initial play test great. The Sears games might also be desirable for some. The boxes are rough, but Bowling and Golf are complete. Checkers and Backgammon have 1 and 2 overlays respectively. The only other interesting thing here is that Football has a manual and 2 playbooks. The box also references the keyboard on that one.
