Michael B. of FL  "I appreciate the great customer service I received when I purchased a Jaguar from you earlier this year..."

Kris M. of Canada  Kris Purchased one of Bests New Replacement Jaguar US Motherboards a couple of months ago.  He said the new Atari Jaguar Motherboard started to develop some problems with certain Jaguar Game Cartridges.  We said to return it back to us, since it was still under the normal 90 day Atari Warranty.  "I received the replacement board the other day, popped it in and it's working great now!  Thanks again, and I really appreciate the great service!"

Justin G. of MS  Justin purchased an 'as is' Jaguar console off E-Bay.  We gave Justin some Atari Tech tips on the Jaguar Motherboards but it ended up as another piece of E-Bay Atari scrap.  Justin purchased one of Bests drop in replacement Jaguar US replacement motherboards.  "I got my replacement motherboard today, popped it right in and my Jaguar worked like a charm just as advertised.  I've gotta tell you this definitely brought back some memories.  I felt like a kid again. This is awesome.  I just wanted to let y'all know that I'm very satisfied in Best Electronics!!!!! 2 thumbs up!!!! Thx"

Ben F. of the UK   "Got the Jag CD last month from you and have it set up now with a power supply.  Brilliant item.  Thanks for your great service!"  Ben was looking for complete Atari Jaguar CD Player sent to England.  We recommend to Ben, because of the Very high cost of International Shipping to the UK and the heavy nature of the complete Jaguar CD Player, that he should get Bests Reconditioned Atari Jaguar CD player only and get the Atari Jaguar CD software and UK Atari Jaguar Power supply in the Euro Zone, where shipping costs are about 1/5 to 1/6 of the high cost of International shipping.

Ryan D. of MN  "The package arrived today," Ryan ordered one of Bests Reconditioned Jaguar CD Player with some Jaguar CD Games.  "as a first time customer I am really impressed with the careful packing (the Atari tape is a great touch) and the printouts you sent along with the Jaguar CD. I had fun looking through the Atari information you sent and really appreciated the CD tips that came packaged with the Jaguar CD.  I followed the instructions and was careful attaching the CD unit and everything works flawlessly.  In addition the CD unit looks brand new.  I am very pleased I found your site before purchasing a questionable Ebay unit for way too much money. Great prices and great service, I'll be back.  Thanks again!"

Ashton H. of NC   Ashton's second Atari order from Best, he got a Reconditioned Atari Jaguar CD Player and Reconditioned Atari 1040ST Computer.  "I received the Jag CD and 1040STF. Wow is all I can say they look brand new especially the 1040 next to my old yellowed one I've been using the past few years."

Reconditioned Jaguar CD players.  Have a Jaguar CD player that went bad?   Why buy a used one on E-Bay for more money?  One of the more common comments we get from Jaguar owners, is I bought a used Jaguar CD Player on E-Bay, it worked for about a week or month and died.  The E-Bay Seller will do nothing about it.  With the Normal Atari 90 day Warranty.  Jaguar CD Player Without power supply, software or shipping box, see picture above.

Best Jaguar Console Tech Tip.

Subject: Jaguar Console Red Screen of Death lock up.

Symptom 1.  Jaguar console was working fine.  One day I was changing a Jaguar Game cartridge and got the Jaguar normal boot up screen with Atari logo and sound and then the screen turned all Red and the Jaguar locked up.  Every Jaguar Game cartridge after that gets the same Red Screen of death 

Symptom 2.   Got a used Jaguar console on E-bay, every known good Jaguar Cartridge I try to use on this Jaguar console gets the Red Jaguar death screen.

Symptom 3.   I can get some of my Jaguar Game Cartridges to boot up if I put a little pressure on the front or back side of the Game cartridge when turning on my Jaguar.  But as soon as I let go of Jaguar Game Cartridge, I get the Jaguar Red Death screen.

Possible Causes for this Jaguar boot up problem.

   1.       A Jaguar Chip / Electronic motherboard component failure.

2.       Using the wrong non Atari Jaguar Power Supply and possibly damaging the Jaguar console.

3.       Bad Jaguar game cartridge or Foreign material on the Jaguar Cartridge gold edge card fingers or foreign maternal wedged into the Jaguar cartridge connector cavity.

4.       One of the more common failures we at Best Electronics see, that causes this symptom is a damaged 104 pin Jaguar Game cartridge connector.

 How to inspect for the fourth reason on the above list.

 Items needed:  Magnifying glass and Very Good bright Light source.

Instructions:  Shine the bright light on / into the 104 pin black rectangular long connector inside the Jaguar Cartridge connector well.  On the Black long rectangular Jaguar cartridge connector, you will see a very long rectangular center slot and a shorter (about of inch long) rectangular slot down the middle of this Jaguar cartridge connector.  Both Jaguar connector slots have Gold Plated very thin crescent shaped slide contacts on either side (top and bottom sides) of this connector.

Using your Magnifying glass, inspect the length of the Jaguar connector for damaged, bent or smashed down (the most common symptom) gold plated very thin crescent shaped contacts.   It only takes one of these 104 very thin damaged contacts to cause the Jaguar Red screen of death.  You will usually see one or more of the thin gold plated contacts smashed down to the bottom of the Jaguar connector housing.

The most common section of the Jaguar connector we see more damaged crescent shaped gold contact(s) is in the short inch length section of the Jaguar Cartridge connector body.

A quicker method of narrowing down where you might have damaged Jaguar cartridge thin crescent shaped contacts.  

Notice on the top surface of the Jaguar 104 pin Cartridge black connector body, behind each thin gold plated crescent shaped contacts in the connector body slot is a Very Very tiny micro square opening set back about 1/64 of an inch away from the edge of the Jaguar connector long and short slots.  In each of these Micro square openings you can see (using the Magnifying glass) end / top tip of the gold plated crescent shaped contact.  It basically looks like a tiny dot of Gold in the Micro square opening.  So a quick check of the 52 (per side, 104 total) Micro square openings for any missing Gold dots (very top of the crescent shaped contact) will tell you where you have a damaged, missing or bent Jaguar Cartridge leaf contact inside the Jaguar connector.

What caused this Damaged to the Jaguar cartridge thin crescent shaped contacts?

Some early / first produced Atari Jaguar Game cartridge Gold plated Printed Circuit board edges did not have two beveled (rounded) edges (so it would gently slide into the gold plated Jaguar cartridge connectors) on printed circuit board end that inserts into the Jaguar connector   Some had a square or rough end that damaged  / smashed down the Jaguar thin gold plated leaf game cartridge contacts.

Other reasons:

Thick Gold Plated contacts strips / fingers (end of the Gold trace with a square metal end on it) on the Jaguar Game Cartridge Printed Circuit Board (PCB) edge. Without the same beveled edge as the base PCB board material, these sharp right angle metal traces would dig into the crescent shaped mating contact surface (like a tiny straight blade screwdriver end) and again damage or collapse the crescent shaped thin mating gold contact..

Jaguar Game cartridge Inserted into the cartridge connector at a slight angle.

Foreign Material (paper, lint, hair, dirt) on the end of the Jaguar game cartridge gold plated edge card connector trace(s) when inserted onto the cartridge connector. 

Is it possible to pull out or re-bend back the damaged Jaguar Cartridge crescent shaped thin gold contacts?

We have found that it is almost impossible to pull out or re-bend out a damaged Jaguar thin crescent gold contact.  It would be like trying the flatten out a very very thin paper clip, almost impossible given the tiny space within the Jaguar cartridge center slot.

How to prevent this from happening in the future?

Inspect all of your Atari Jaguar game cartridges for non beveled PCB boards edges, thick gold plated trace ends without beveled edges, foreign materials or damaged (notched) PCB ends.

Sand or file down any square or slightly / under beveled Atari Jaguar game cartridge PCB edge card ends to a smooth beveled or round surface.   Make sure you fully clean off any sanded or filed off maternal off the ends of the Jaguar cartridge PCB end before you insert them into your Jaguar cartridge connector.

What to do with your Jaguar console with a damaged cartridge connector?

We (Best Electronics) have found that in about 90 to 95 percent of the cases we have seen (this assumes the Atari Jaguar did not have any other problems before the Jag connector was damaged and the damaged connector(s) pins did not short out and cause other Jaguar motherboard circuit problems), replacing the damaged Jaguar connector will bring a Red Screen Jaguar back to fully working Jaguar console again.

To replace the Atari Jaguar 104 pin Game is not for the average Atari user with standard soldering experience.  The Jaguar Surface Mount Technology (SMT) motherboards use very small diameter Jaguar game cartridge connector thru holes.  Using standard Solder sucking tools or solder wick will usually not fully remove all of the solder in the Jaguar cartridge connector pins / small pass thru holes.  Using standard solder irons (with uncontrolled temperature settings) will also over heat these tiny solder pads and thin traces around the 104 pin Jaguar cartridge connector pins and will usually cause the small cartridge connector hole pads to pull off the PCB.  Just one (out of the 104 pins on the solder side of the Jaguar motherboard) lifted Jaguar cartridge connector hole pads, pulled copper plated thru hole trace (hidden solder left in the connector pin hole when removing the old damaged Jaguar Cartridge connector) or cracked circuit trace on the bottom or pulled top trace (un-removed hidden solder in the top of the hole directly under the Jaguar connector body) can mean instant death to a repairable Jaguar motherboard. 

On a scale of 1 to 10, the tech skill level required to do this Jaguar Cartridge connector replacement is a 9 to 10 range.  A good very experienced SMT Tech using U$D 500 U$D 1000+ soldering removing equipment would find this Jaguar cartridge connector removal and replacement Job an easy one.  Not to discourage you from repairing your Jaguar Motherboard yourself, but we have seen so called experienced Atari Techs butcher / damage a repairable Jaguar Motherboard to where it ended up as a scrap in the trash can.

If you know somebody with the proper SMT experience, Best Electronics has the new Atari Jaguar OEM 104 pin Cartridge connectors in stock.   Cost is U$D 15 each.
