Recently I decided to boot my original 1978 Atari vcr, or heavy sixer. But sadly I learned the old thing has a tear down, so now I’ve come on here asking to see if anyone knows of or can fix and repair old consoles like this. I’m looking for someone in Calgary, Alberta CA that could do it. I’m also willing to pay for it as well 👍
I'm new to collecting for Atari 2600, more bought it as a joke to play ET. I know the history behind the Atari, but what are some must have games for the system?
I kind of got interested in collected because the game vartrages look really cool!
Thanks in advanced!
外围体育投注Anyone here had experience with the delux video mod available from tfw8bit.com? I nodded a Vader 2600 and get very good video signal but get bursts of static when the “gun” noise happens in a game - think the gun noise in vanguard. The mates at the site suggested a grounding problem but I have checked and redone all connections. If it is a grounding problem it is in their board, as my joints are all clean and tight.
外围体育投注This is my first post on reddit, in this forum. I'm not familiar with the website, but I hope to learn more about it in the days to come. Anyways, I am having trouble with one of my systems, which is a heavy sixer I got a few years back. I had some trouble getting it to start along with video signal problems, which I solved by using a thicker rf cable from a pong console. However, another problem I can't fix is the appearance of certain sprites in the games. For example, ET doesn't extend his neck to escape the pits, and after a while, there is a strange buzzing sound from the speakers. Haunted House doesn't show up the glow effect surrounding the character sprite. There other games with similar graphics issues that don't make sense. I was wondering if it could be an internal problem, say with a bad chip or faulty wiring? I am new to atari repairs and collecting in general.
