Can anybody tell me whats wrong with my 800XL?  It was working
fine, the suddenly the video quit.  Everything else seems to
work just fine. I just can't see what I'm doing. I get no output
from the RF or the video output connections. Is it worth fixing?
I already have another one, so if the broken onNNe isn't worth
fixing, what parts should I salvage?

Thanks very much for any help that you can give me. Birmingham
is a lonely town for an Atarian!! >>>>> Ishmael<<<<

If the power light doesn't come on,
it's the power supply, you need a new
one.  If it's something else, the
video chips could be damaged and your 
only choices would be to fix it,
junk it, or take it apart and try
to fix it (or you could take out
the parts for rNeplacements)
