Atari 800 12V DC adapter problem

Recommended Posts

a search of the forum will yield a run down on fixing the keyboard if needed and some you tube links more than likely as well

Congrats on it working!  One of the problems with 800 keyboards is the ones with yellow plungers are reported to be more brittle and prone to cracking at the corners. I have one with white plungers that was stored poorly in a hot garage for 25 years that also has cracked plungers. Its keyboard still works, for now. Check the two 'wings' inside each plunger to see their condition and that they are touching when the plunge is depressed.


Another possible issue is the mylar.
