Re: Atari 2600/7800 Composite MOD

Nice work. How hard was it to get the modulator out? They tend to be soldered to pretty big grounding plates.

Re: Atari 2600/7800 Composite MOD

Good stuff. I have a Jr I spannered playing with video mods a while back. Glad you did this as I needed some motivation to get on to it. I have a vader I put sockets on, wish I had used cables as I hat things that aren't reversible.

Re: Post something people born after year 2000 wont understand

Jimi Hendrix. I remember a work placement kid who didn't know who Jimi Hendrix was. I was stunned.

My kids are 1999 and 2002, the know Atari's, records, tapes, 57' Strats, William Shatner and Action Man, all the good stuff.

Re: Image of truth...

More of a single malt person myself. :-) I tend to be too busy doing any number of the things I call hobbies to post much. But, I love it when I get an Atari up and running. I get to play with some good gear at work too, I set up 720TB of storage in three chassis today. Three quarters of a petabyte,...

Pretty much why I don't get on facebook much. Death by a thousand posts.

Re: Top of the pile

It was, unfortunately it has given up the ghost. More than just caps, it seems. I replaced the reg as well but I'm getting nada out of it. I can't get any 6 chip varieties to work, it may be the burnt roms I have aren't burnt correctly. The ULM demo sort of fires over, but no desktop. 1.02 is fine, ...

Re: Top of the pile

Success. Man that reset switch was an absolute mongrel. Only thing left is to try the 6 chip 1.04 sets I have. 1.02 2 chip is cooking with gas, I installed a jumper to make it easier. https://s19.postimg.org/uag5fgs7n/20180312_135635.jpg https://s19.postimg.org/4rnt2fdsj/20180312_135723.jpg https://...

Re: Top of the pile

If it is enough for the Mega, all good. I'll give it a re cap. Next step is reinstall the smoothing cap, drop TOS 1.04 in, put three jumpers in for ROM select, replace the reset switch, swap the PCB's of the PSU's around and put the thing back together. All I need is a bit of time.
