Also, make sure its not working because your P/S is weak. Whatever you do, don'...

Re: Repairing a Stacy

Oh, and the problems you're having with the new screen, @AndresPlaza, is not because it's broken. You just need to perfectly and painstakingly adjust the screen in the metal frame until the bars are gone. Thanks for all the info, in particular that one!

Re: Project rePAK

Hello!

It has been a while since someone posted in this thread, and DarkLord (thanks!) pointed out this cool project to me.

I looked at all the posts, and could not find any links to the Gerber files and documentation. What am I missing? :-)

Thanks!

Repairing a Stacy

Hi, Some time ago I bought an Atari Stacy, and I'm in the journey to repair/upgrade it. I found some information online about it, but not much, so I wanted to do my part, documenting my experience. Take a look! Comments and suggestions are welcome: Current posts about the Stacy (more to come soon): ...

Hi Vido,

I'm curious about what problems a person will find using other keyboard than an Atari one.

Thanks,

Re: Help with Atari STf - RGB - Cannot get video/sync

tl;dr : It works! Hi everyone, A few weeks ago I bought a 1040STf; I was very happy because in the 80s I had a 130XE and, after a while, I wanted to have an ST. But my dad bought me a 8088... Well, that's old history, but finally I have the computer that I wanted! :-) I got a monitor-to-VGA cable, ...
