Atari 5200 Sophia Help

Recommended Posts

Hi all! I have a 4 controller port of Atari 5200 that has a composite mod, so I am trying to get the Sophia Rev C that I luckily bought on eBay, but I tried and sadly I got no picture, so can anyone help me figure it out?

 

Here is the link for Sophia: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Sophia-rev-C-for-Atari-8bit-Computers-DVI-Output-1536x960-w-DVI-to-HDMI-Adapt/174143007237?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

I have the stuff that I can use to reprogram my Sophia with the USB Blaster, but how do I reprogram it?

Have you contacted @Simius to get the core you need to program it with? If so, surely he can help step you through the process?

Well until you get in touch with him and obtain the file you need, even with the right hardware and the process to reprogram the SOPHIA, I think you’re out of luck.

I've installed a Sophia several years ago. I have a number of firmware files.  I don't remember which file I used on it.  I'm attaching everything I received from Simius.  It might be something as simple as jumper settings.

I did send him a PM earlier, but he hasn’t read it yet.

Thinking more about city, I don't think I flashed anything. It was the VBXE that need flashing as it came set up for XE computers. Revision C was just a change to DVI output.

 

On mine I had set jumpers to get it to output a picture.  

 

Simius install instructions were:

Installation goes the same way, as in other computers. Remove GTIA chip, put the additional socket, put Sophia board, put GTIA chip, connect the ribbon cable. That's all.

I know how to install on Sophia on my A5200, but I want to reprogram it with a different resolution.
