I have two more 1200XLs to add to the list, having completed gone through them finally to inventory what needs to be done (repairs, etc):

 

72R DA 04104 173

72R DA 18278 223

 

Should have one or two more to report soon, Atari time allowing of course. ;)

 

Thank you again, in advance!

Hey Tim, save some for the rest of us. Just kidding. I sold you the one with the ClearPic 2002, R63 and Rev 11 OS. Are you trying to corner the market on 1200XLs? Definitely my favorite Atari 8-bit machine.

That was definitely one of the two best 1200XLs that I've been able to procure! These latest ones have been infected with bad mylars, primarily.

 

And to be honest, I'm not sure. Just feeding the addiction right now, I think. Never had a 1200XL in my life, and now I have a family of them, each with their own personality. But one things for sure: I intend to restore and refurbish them with, at a minimum, the basic recommended mods that you mentioned. The first one I am saving for a special personal project. And once the SALT equipment arrives, I'll give them all a thorough shakedown.

 

After that, I'll need to decide which one will get the VBXE and U1MB mod.

 

I haven't really thought beyond that point (apart from being deathly afraid of doing something to ruin one of them!). I'm just enjoying having them when there was a time I never could have afforded them. And given the wide array of mods now available in the Atari community, my brain's afire with ideas that I wouldn't mind exploring, including programming two specific games that have been in my head all these years that look like they are now technically possible with the 8bit.

 

But I suppose most of it is part of my addictive personality disorder. ;)

Any more updates before I enter these into the list? Stargunner, seriously... eight or nine??!

 

I have several more to add, but have been so caught up with work and other things that I haven't posted them. Will try to do so this weekend.

 

Or should I wait until these next two or three arrive in the next couple weeks?

You are set for life! Do you have them all operational? I guess I can start bidding again on eBay since you are taking a sabbatical. LOL! :rolling: :lol:

The two most-recent arrivals both need mylar repairs, but yes, all the rest are ready for battle. ;)

Hi,

 

mine has the serial number

 

83S DA 022759 183

 

Has been modified by the great tf_hh to run as a PAL machine. Unfortunately the previous owner has cut(?) a large opening in to the left side, probably to get better access to the module slot and/or joysticks - or is it generally just a missing piece? In the latter case, I'd sure be happy if someone had a replacement :)...

 

Cheers,

 

F.

Yes, could be. Over the left side, there is a big cover part.

Thanks for the prompt response - I assume there's no place where I could get such a part other than taking it from another 1200XL... Too bad, but at least it's not visible on first sight...

83S DA 53483 163 *NEW ADDITION*

83S DA 52877 163 *NEW ADDITION*

 

72R DA 04104 173

72R DA 04798 173

72R DA 05870 173

 

72R DA 08774 193 *NEW ADDITION*

I do also have an "orphan" Atari 1200XL.

 

I call it an "orphan" because the bottom label has been completely scrubbed. The only identifier is that of a sticker on the riser to the right on the mainboard:

 

DA 015387 (Both the 83S and 72R contain "DA" in their serials, so no love there.)

 

On the bottom of the mainboard:

 

MC4 VO

0383

 

REV 13A / CO60585

© Atari 1982

Here are 4 of 6 of mine:

 

72R DA 15439 213

72R DA 24250 253

 

83S DA 028280 213

83S DA 75???? ??3 (washed out label)

 

Check on the heat riser "wall's" outer rightmost side for a sticker. If it's there, you'll have the rest of the primary serial (DA 75????) although it won't list the final 3-digit number (production week). It's possible that the production week number is stamped on the mainboard, though, as it seems I'd seen it there on some of my 1200XL family.

My 1200XL is pretty heavily modified. It has the PBI mod, the video mod (not sure which one), a RAMBO memory mod (256K?), 32-in1 OS mod, and Bob did a few mods inside to make it 99% compatible with games. It also uses a DC power supply now.
