A.J. Franzman Posted October 22, 2006 Share Posted October 22, 2006 (edited) I have recently had returned to me, the items from this previous topic: FT/FS: 5200 4-Port Console, 2 Controllers, Kangaroo Cart I picked up a 5200 4-port console at a thrift store and would like to trade or sell it to someone who can make use of it. The AC adapter power supply and the special automatic RF switchbox are not included (I don't have them). This style is made to have the power supply plug into the RF switchbox. The case is in fair shape; there are a few scratches on the aluminum, one of the 4 hinge pegs on the lid has been broken and glued, and there's an area near the front center where it looks like the plastic got lightly melted by something hot and textured, or perhaps some plasticizer transfer from styrofoam or vinyl, but it's not too severe and may even be repairable if you're a model builder or something like that. This console has 4 controller ports, full expansion port and socketed ICs so is probably one of those that has few (if any) game compatibility issues. I also have 3 common cartridges and a pair of controllers with it. Both controllers are well used and have no rubber boots, but still have the pink protective plastic over the metal "Atari 5200" logo strip. By cleaning the controller contacts I was able to get them both working fairly well. The person who previously received this console claimed, "when i plugged it in the red light went on 2 times and never did again". Before sending it, I had run it for 2-3 hours during cleaning and testing of the controllers, so I believe there was nothing wrong with it at that time. After receiving it back again, I can still find nothing at all wrong with it electronically. Screenshots below were made after I got it back, using a homemade adapter to power the console in the normal way through the RF cable, but using a manual switchbox (plans available here: 5200 Switchbox). The AC adapter I used is electrically compatible but has the wrong plug, and I need it for something else. Please make offers. If interested in a trade, follow the first link in my sig for my wants (all my wants are 2600 related). People who indicated interest but did not receive this lot the previous time I offered it will receive priority consideration, if any of them still want it. Edited April 1, 2007 by A.J.
