Battlezone Cabaret

While on vacation last week in Elysburg, PA at the extremely awesome amusement park Knoebels, I browsed eBay a few times during the couple rain spells we had and saw a non-working Battlezone cabaret. I ended up writing the seller for more pictures and in the end we agreed on a $225 non-eBay BIN.

Battlezone Cabaret - side

The cabinet is in extremely nice condition with generic wood grain sides that Atari loved to use. The control panel paint is in great shape and the joysticks look good, but you can tell this game got played back in the day

The original monitor bezel was included and is pretty darn neat...

Even the inside of the cabinet is in great shape...

Battlezone Cabaret - inside

Like I said, it is non-working but at least there are some positive signs of live... the voltages coming out of the A/R II are spot on. There is some chatter coming out of the monitor but the spot killer is on. Both +5v LEDs are on the PCBs. And I even get some sounds once in a while.

UPDATE: 02-20-2010
The game started acting up last week and it turns out I damaged a trace under the C11 socket when I removed the original TL084N that was there. Needed to replace the socket again and then add a jumper to bypass the damaged area.
UPDATE: 03-06-2010
This game is now for sale for $450. (UPDATE: IT HAS BEEN SOLD!!!)
