JayArgonaut Posted April 24, 2022 Share Posted April 24, 2022 This is my 2nd Atari purchase in a fortnight. Looks like the addiction is resuming... I've bought an US 7800 from eBay for $46 USD/£35 GBP. Its been described as fully working. Here's a couple of images from the listing: It's going to be bare bones: no controller - which isn't so much of an issue and no PSU - which is more of an issue. I do have a couple of flat panel TV's which definitely can tune into NTSC signals via RF but it's likely that the older of the two (which was made in 2001) has the sensitivity required to properly lock onto the RF signal from a yesteryear device like this. An A/V mod will be a must. As for the PSU, I've checked out a few threads on here and seen the link to Best Electronics who can provide replacements for $20 USD but given that I'm in the UK I'm wondering if it might be more practical and cheaper for me to remove the original jack and replace it with something more common - as was done in this video: I've gone into this with my eyes open and I recognise that whatever I do will require soldering iron sessions and patience. As always, I'd appreciate your advice and suggestions. Thanks all. ? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
