I’m trying to find the positive — at least this will drive more traffic to MicroCenter and hopefully help them stay afloat.

Yes. I thought Summer 2020 was going to be it.

Guys  - Sorry but my Atari stuff and I won’t be able to make it today due to worn needs.  Next time!

Reminder of meeting this Saturday! (and some of the items I'll be bringing..)

Limingxue
 




Hello everyone, 

I am looking to make some stuff. I will be selling some of my
 commodore stuff and an original Atari 2600. 

The commodore stuff, I am selling is (everything works great):
Vic 20
C64C 
several games and programs
Tapino (allows for loading of tape games/programs)
SDIEC 1541 (allows loading of any floppy disk program/games)
Epyx Fast loader. 
Commodore monitor (works good)
I created the power supply for C64 (as the original ones are not good to use anymore), this one is using new power supplies to provide safe power. 

The Atari 2600 is fully functional (works great) although I don’t know where any games are. 

Anyways, I am thinking $400 for the Commodore stuff (much cheaper than buying any of this stuff by itself), or $200 for the Atari. 

I am also open to trades, although right now I am mostly looking for guitars/amps etc. I am also looking for a treadmill.  

Thanks, 
Nathan

I still have a few Atari pieces to offload.  If someone has a PC with a 5 1/4 inch drive, that's something I'd love to add to my collection.

Hey Earl

I'm looking for a PC with a 5 1/4 inch drive...  I've got a TON of disk software and a 1200XL that needs a new keyboard mylar...  Will probably be bringing a couple of 2600 consoles also.  Anything we can do here?

Sorry I don't.  Gave out all my spares at the last meeting.  And I don't think any of them were upgraded anyway.

Re: CRT cap replacement

Doug Dement
 

Stick to Nichicon or Panasonic where possible.  There is a guy in the professional monitor forums (Steve Nutter out of Nashville) on FB that also sells some PVM cap kits.  Console5 has most of the common computer monitor kits.  Arcadepartsandrepair.com carries best cap kits and parts for arcade monitors.

Regards,

 If anybody has experience with monitor cap replacements, I'd like to chat with you tomorrow at the meeting.   I just bought a desoldering vacuum and am planning on replacing caps later this year on 2 PVM's, an Atari ST monitor, and an Electrohome G07 monitor in my Pac cab.  Best capacitor brand, advice from your experience,  etc., would be awesome.   Thanks!


Re: CRT cap replacement

Pete Rittwage
 

The Atari and Electrohome monitors won't be too bad, but a PVM (!)... Those have HUNDREDS of electrolytics in them. I don't think I would even try it! Maybe targeting a known problem or section, but a complete recap would be a nightmare on the ones I have.

Re: CRT cap replacement

Nolan Gilmore
 

I also have recapped a number of CRTs, and will be at tomorrow's meeting as well if you want to chat.

One piece of advice I can give you if ordering capacitors from a place like Mouser or Digikey is to watch out for the lead spacing. Its not that big a deal on the smaller, lower value caps, but it's really important for the larger caps as they are usually intended to sit flush with the PCB. Height and diameter can also sometimes be important, especially if the capacitors sit very close to one another.

I've bought cap kits for arcade monitors from arcadeshop.com and have been happy.  They use Nichicon, 105 degree C electrolytic (best from my research) and have pretty good instructions.  You definitely want 105 Degree C and not 85, because the monitor in the arcade cabinets get hot and dry out the electrolyte. 

I'll be there Saturday to talk more.

What sort of PC are you looking for?  
I may have something... esp. if I can get something Atari that I don't have...

Re: Reminder of meeting this Saturday! (and some of the items I'll be bringing..) -- Betamax and HP update?

Earl Baugh
 

The processor I have is only for a DL 360 G4P.  I think the other ones I got were G4s (not G4P).  Sadly I don't think it will work in that one.

If the folks who got the others have sorted them out (Josh I think had a few extra and trying to remember who else had some... but they were
supposed to bring the spares back to a meeting... ). Whoever had them, please speak up so Andre can get a couple CPUs for his box.

Memory wise, I'll be sure to save you some...
