Title: Old b&w french (Consolette) arcade monitor
Post by: virtvic on September 17, 2018, 10:23:05 AM
I recently picked up a beautiful little Ďatarií consolette.
It has a French manufactured monitor in it - a 34cm (13Ē) b&w
It has the tiniest chassis I have ever seen.

The cab doesnít have working power supplies just yet and I was wondering if anyone may have info on the monitor, so I can try and get correct power to it to test it?

Ah these consolettes, they look so nice : one of my grails!!!
Were they made specifically  for UK, Germany or Netherlands?
I never seem to see some of them in France.

Good luck with your restoration. I look forward to seeing this unit work.

Not sure.  The writing on the front (game instructuons etc) are all in Rnglush, but the monitor has a French manufacturer in it.
Iím not even sure who made it. Maybe Atari licensed the cabinet, or itís simply a bootleg. Had a bootleg galaxian pcb in it.
