Is this a legit 5200 mod? I just popped it open and this is what I saw.

I also saw this and made a schematic revision to show how this mod was done: http://atariage.com/forums/topic/266420-schematic-variation-for-5200-2-ports/#entry3778860 It is a factory fix to deal with minor issue that was overlooked when they approved the board design for production. The took an unused gate, wired it from a line and added it to another gate, cut a trace. My guess a timing issue that needed this added line. Also 4 analog pins that originally went to controller port 3 and 4 had to be grounded, they left it floating and that caused issue with some games.


I don't know about that one lifted pin though.
