i have had this plate since 1989 and took very good care of it all these years . but now i haft to put it up for sale. it is in awesome shape all most near MINT CONDITION!!! This would be great for any Collector.
Sadly, this is the second time it’s been listed. Even more depressing, is that my offer of $3.00 was auto declined.
Atari 5200 Pam Diagnostic Cartridge – Nicola mentioned this earlier, but given that it ends today and is currently under $20.00, I’d provide a bit more info.
First, why Pam?
According to AtariAge:
Code names had always been popular at Warner Atari. The VCS was
internally referred to as “Stella,” the 400 computer was “Candy,” the
800 was “Coleen” and the 5200 was nicknamed “Pam.” All of the
aforementioned machines were named after well-endowed female
employees who were working at Atari. The 5200 was unique in that
Atari strongly considered using Pam as the actual name of the unit
before changing it to “Video System X” and eventually deciding on
5200. Why? Because it would have been the abbreviation for
“Personal Arcade Machine.”
The diagnostic cartridge was used by factory authorized service personnel to diagnose malfunctioning systems. It allows for the testing of RAM, ROM, Video, Sound, Joystick Ports, Joysticks, and memory locations.
I found it even more interesting that there existents a similar cartridge know as the Cram Cartridge. The was the nickname for an in-house version of the cart. They are basically the same, except that it has pin #18 shorted to Ground, which forces the 5200 to turn on automatically when the cart is inserted. Pretty nifty.
Anyways, the cart is pretty rare and definitely worth a bid at the price as of posting.
