The Light Sixer List

Recommended Posts

Serial #: 548231228

 

Manufactured by Atari-Wong in Hong Kong

 

Model: CX-2600 U (PAL)

 

The paper taped to the shielding is almost too faded to see but it the number is 99 4420020(5) that last number is hard to read as is faded and the tape goes over it.

 

There is a number on the inside of the lower plastic casing, it is C0 11925-B

 

Has rear facing speaker slits

 

Has slot for channel 2 and 3 switch underneath but no switch in it.

 

Purchased in England by my Father in the early 80s, now resides with me in Brisbane Australia.

 

Picture of it back when we got it and now, with my original games I had and in the case that we got for it back then too.

I just got my first 2600 second-hand a couple of weeks ago.

 

Light Sixer: Sears Tele-games Video Arcade

 

S/N: 19430 T

 

Manufactured by Dimerco Electronics in Taiwan

 

Shell has speaker slots

 

The paper that was taped to the shielding inside the shell is dated July 16, 1980.

 

The guy I got it from had no idea if it still worked. The RF switchbox was toast, so I bought an F-type to RCA adapter and tested it out. After adjusting the pots for the RF modulator and color and disassembling/cleaning/reassembling the b/w switch, the unit works perfectly. The outer shell cleaned up very nicely too.

 

He also included several games, two joysticks (cx-40), and a paddle controller set. Both joysticks look pristine, but one did not register left or down. After taking the joystick apart, the problem was that the wires were very loosely connected to the board. I tried to tighten the clamps on the wires, but they were so brittle they started to break. I decided to just snip off the wire clamps and solder the wires directly to the board inside the joystick. It works perfectly now. The paddle was very jittery, so I disassembled/cleaned/reassembled it and now it works smoothly. I haven't tried the second paddle yet.

how come mine is the only one that starts with 475, i swear its light not heavy, i swear its a sunnyvale label, i swear i think i see the "speaker grills", i swear theres no underside channel select switch- do you think mine is from 1980 right before the switched to 4-switch?
