That's good to know!
There aren't very many Atarian's over here. I believe that Atari sold more in Europe back in the day. What kit do you have? Good to know you Paul!
All the best.

I'll be calling on your help on how to replace the socket if the CPU swap doesn't work if that's OK.

exxos wrote:Yeah removing a socket can be tricky if the person doing it isn't skilled in soldering. I normally heat gun the stuff off, though have to be careful you do not burn the board or end up warping it. Solder sucker and placing a bit of flux on the pins first can get the solder up.. well mostly.. Then I just end up heat gunning it out anyway as can never get all the solder out of the holes Though if I am in not so much of a hurry, I have a hot air station, so i can just kinda blow the solder out of the holes..
Minimal risk would be to get a small pin and bend up each socket pin so you can pull it out with pliers while heating up the pin under the board. Then sucker the solder out of the holes after when the socket is removed.
