This Atari 400 system was found in a basement
closet here in Portland. Still a work in progress.
First step: Check to make sure the computer works. I took the board out of the case to check the capacitors. No one wants the caps to blow when you turn it on
Everything checks outs. Capacitors are good. The aluminum
shield was removed and the cpu and other chips looked good too.
I put the case back on, placed a cartidge in and hooked the
Atari up to my TV.
Looks like I am officially collecting 8-bit Atari computers
now. Too bad the 600 was dead when I got it.
