Old b&w french (Consolette) arcade monitor
« on: September 17, 2018, 09:23:05 AM »
I recently picked up a beautiful little ‘atari’ consolette.
It has a French manufactured monitor in it - a 34cm (13”) b&w
It has the tiniest chassis I have ever seen.

The cab doesn’t 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.
Dreaming of a Namco Galaxian waiting in a barn for me... somewhere! A Nintendo Sheriff would also make me happy. And a SNK Sasuke Vs Commanders or a SEGA Samurai... Argh too many; in fact!

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

Yes - I’ve seen that one. It’s a proper Atari one with breakout in it.

I’m sure mine’s a bootleg.
