Was there ever a video modification for the 1200XL to fix this problem. thank you in advance GO ATARI8 GO ATARI8 GO ATARI8 *** Answered by Michael Current, aa700: That would be the Commodore 1802, one of the more popular monitors for the 8-bit Atari. And as far as I know, this includes the 1200XL. So my guess would be that either your monitor or your computer is unhealthy and could use repairs. Check the monitor with another video source to help determine which is the culprit.
