Thank ya! So it turns out that STacy has a regular TOS. Nothing special about it.
I wish I had seen this earlier...several members of the Atari-Forum helped me with the same question.

I did read your thread carefully. I wasn’t quite sure how it worked since you had an external monitor connected to it.


I have now installed a new screen. Exactly the same as here: http://www.falconproductions.us/blog/ne ... splay.html


Nice and bright! Huge difference!

I wonder if it is worth asking permission from that guy to include is information here ? There is not much Stacey information anywhere I think, so if we had a copy hosted on here would help keep things more in one place..

Wow, what a difference!

Anyone know how this compare to the improvement in brightness after replacing the EL panel?

Ain’t she a beauty!
She sure is! I've always admired the STacy's sleek lines and look.

Awesome. I have moved it to its own thread so it's easier to find for people in the future :).

PCB on its way and components ordered. Uses 2Mbit ROMs for TOS switching. TOS 2.06 decoding on bottom side. Hopefully it will work :)
