[Review] Chip Tia Altar 2600 CO10444 KSC131 UM6526

The Chip TIA do Atari 2600 It is known by several names, as CO10444, CO104444D, KSC131, UM6526, UM6526N, and other. Was purchased for use in one of my Atari 2600, which occupies the main post, in the living room TV.

He was acquired because this Atari 2600 I was not working with paddles at the entrance to the left controls. After testing the connections of inputs and tracks, suspected of capacitors and TIA.

Like the capacitors are cheaper tried to exchange them first. But they were not the problem. Then from left to a new TIA. I will make a specific article reporting this problem and the solution. Spoiler: TIA was the same!

Unfortunately the TIA Atari 2600 It is a custom chip, then find it in the market is not so easy. To I found some on AliExpress for a good price, but apparently they are the PAL version, which is not compatible with NTSC, used in Atari 2600 Americans and Brazilians.

In Best Electronics NTSC version is available, but it costs $ 25,95. Add the value of the US shipping here and the cost is very high.

In the end I ended up finding some TIA NTSC Atari 2600 the Free Market. Prices are somewhat high, but much cheaper to import the Best Electronics. I ended up spending R $ 50,00 and R $ 10,90 de frete. It was the cheapest I found, including the freight charge.

But at least the Atari 2600 It was perfect now and works with paddles on both doors controllers.

Check out the photos and the video of the unboxing, installation and testing of the Chip TIA do Atari 2600:

I made the purchase on a Sunday, but the seller took a long time to send, posting only on Wednesday. To disrupt further, the Post Office invented um state of “incorrect address”. The next day they made the delivery and usually there was nothing wrong with the address. Another package that was supposed to arrive on the same day was marked “Delivered” no system, but it was only delivered in fact the next day.

The doorman informed me that they did not pass the day in question. It probably invented “incorrect address” because it was common and Sedex Sedex when it comes within must be refunded to the sender. I do not know how the free market contract, but the large volume of packages they must have made a good deal and there is possibly even higher fines for delays.

Perhaps employees also suffer some consequence when they cause such delays. Ultimately, delayed delivery, HE knows-because, and invented a false status in the system, probably to get away from any possible punishment. This is the post office!

These are the tracking information package:

That “incorrect address” significa na verdadecarteiro não conseguiu, ou não quis entregar, mas precisa colocar uma justificativa aqui”.
