Absolutely, it could be worth a whole lot. Go to a pawn shop for an easy sell or go on ebay. But old fashioned systems are collectors and can sometimes get extremely expensive. You have something on your hands there!

Hi.
Yes, your video game system is indeed worth money.

Depending on if you still have the original boxes and stuff for the game system, this could be worth $200 or more!

I have seen the machine by itself on eBay, without game cartridges and they still are asking $100.
And this is without the boxes.

So as you can see, old doesn't mean not worth anything.

I hope this helps you out, and have a good day !

How much r these watches worth b4 I even consider repair? Thx


If you are interested to have some idea about how much are worth your unspecifies watches, go to ebay and look for similar models. might give you idea if worth or not to repair them
Please take note that an old watch, if not in good shape, faultless, has really no collectors value, just because it's old. There are too many old watches around. If has gold parts, only worth value of the gold. Goldfilled watches are not worth anything if they are not perfect.

We got an atari 2600 through an estate cleanout. condition "looks" good but we had trouble hooking it up until we got the adapter from radio shack. now when we insert cartridges we get nothing or...


The game cartridges are probably dirty, and as such the system has problems reading them. Take a look at this page on how to clean the cartridges and hopefully they will work.

Atari 2600 Jr doesn't turn on


Sounds like the power supply\power converter has finally given up the ghost. It will likely cost you more than it's worth to fix it. You'll have to fix it yourself most likely. I would look for burned-out or popped capacitors to start off with. They are likely culprits in even computer systems when the power goes out. With something as old as an Atari 2600 it could be just about anything.

Some parts of the games are invisible


It might be a software issue, since the machine is so old. I recommend just blowing in the cartridge and praying it works like we used to do when we were kids! ;)

That or download the ROMs somewhere on the internet and play them on a PC. There's not much restoration you can do to a bad cartridge.

Arcade game space invaders, may need new


Perhaps the rendering engine is corrupt? Does the board experience any crashing or blue screens inside windows or any other gui? is it only giving you trouble in the game? Perhaps the game was written for an older chipset and cannot be rendered on this platform.

Hi i have a taito spaci invader coktail table screen is blank faint little light .Where do i get it repaired. Its very old i am in fresno ca. thanks


If everything works and the monitor is dim, it likely needs a 'cap kit', or all the capacitors on the monitor replaced. You can find a lot of help at the google group 'rec.games.video.arcade.collecting' ... there is also a company called P&L Video Game Repair that you can ship the monitor boards to for repair. Make sure you research how to remove the monitor boards though, they can be very dangerous!

I dunno if this place has what you are looking for. The look in pretty mint condition from the pictures.

This other website has an interesting Atari collection, but I don't think he's selling. But interesting to look at.
