Regretfully not mine, I saw the photo here:


In the photo section.

Yes, you're exactly right about the ST: It had "the best of both worlds", I never saw the Amiga as a machine that could do serious "business" like stuff. That's what I liked about the ST...with the B/W monitor is was a cheap Mac, with the color monitor a very good games (etc.) machine...

Since we're talking "intro's" and "demo's" here, a small proof of the power of the A8:


Not for flaming!
Sorry, but with Amiga ( first an A2000 plus 40Mb HD mfm type with a non professional genlock, after some monts, an A4000/030 with GVP IV 24 ) I work many years on a local television mading gfx and using "SCALA" ( on Atari never made... ) for titeling and other things. Don't blame Atari is professional, Amiga not, simply the computer have the same start team ( Jay Glenn Miner for example! ) and different type of using: IMO AtariST made a great job for several years for musician with his midi interface, but for gfx, the Amiga was superior: the HAM mode for example; the possiblity to use a genlock and having the bit 0 free for making any type of background or pass a video signal.

@ flip971

I while back I did a scan of a Zaccaria Crazy Kong manual, it's available here: http://www.antelopearcade.com/manuals/Crazy%20Kong.pdf

I did not look for specs yet, but andre mentioned that there where no specs for the pot in the schematics..


Just looked again in the schematics....

No offence Andre, but are you not wearing your glasses ??
(that sounds more friendly than "are you f#cking blind!")  Grin

So next week i will be buying a 47 ohm pot i guess..

I see now the link and the scematics... oppps oppps oppps

Did You can publish the schematics?
On the schematics there is any value of the parts?

I have read the Coleco repair pages here:
But I have a question to you electronic wizkids out here.

The unit I bought does not power on.
This is what I checked:
- I have a Gakken unit (which has a power plug instead of the Coleco branded ones), so I connected 6V mini-mini jack (2.5mm, 6.3 V tip).
- When the switch is off, I measure +6.3V between the red wire-solder point on the PCB and the black one (seems totally logical).
- When the switch is on, I measure +1.5V on the switched pin from the on/off switch. That feels weird, I think it should still be 6.3V.

What can this mean?

From the site:

"If power is getting to the main board, and seems to be getting through the power switch, but doesn't go much further, I'd suspect a transistor. For me, this is a quick test, but if you aren't familiar with de-soldering or testing transistors, then this might not be for you. Basically, there are two transistors in the game (one circled in yellow, the other is the black square right below it), remove them both and test them with a meter. (Other games might have more, just learn their apperance, they are black, almost always circular with one flat face, and have 3 connections coming out of them.) If either fails, replace it. (They are cheap, you can always just replace them instead of testing them if you'd rather go that route.) I'm still surprised how many games I've fixed with this one procedure. It just takes plugging in the wrong kind of power once... These almost act like fuses for the game.

If none of the above seems to fix the game, and things aren't getting hot when turned on, try testing several points on the game with the volt meter and see if you can trace how far power is going. Also, check the traces on the main board as best you can for damage, corrosion or breaks (see the section below about my problem for an example of this). If you are determined to fix your game, remove all the transistors, resistors, diodes and capacitors, and test them all. If everything is working, and you can't find physical damage to the board, most likely the CPU chip itself got damaged. That usually means find another game... (Also, if you find a bad component, test them ALL before you replace the one and power up the game. Another component could be causing the damage to the one you just replaced.)"

Try to check the transormer too!!
