TT030 Computer 68030 

CB102970-4   Reconditioned Atari TT030 Computer 110 - 220V Auto switching) with 40 Meg Hard Drive, 4 Meg ST Ram, QWERTY Keyboard/Keyboard Cable, 720K Disk Drive, English Owners Manual, 110V Power Cord and STM1 Mouse. Out of stock

Reconditioned / Upgraded Atari PAL TT (white case) external Keyboard with keyboard cable.  Most, but not all of these used Atari keyboards, came right out the Atari Sunnyvale Corp. main headquarters.  Best got the rights to purchase all Atari items / goods out of the Atari headquarters building when Atari was shutting down.  Most of these Atari external keyboards were just laying around the different Atari departments because some of the key functions had started to fail and had been replaced with a new one from Atari inventory.  The close to 100% failure rate stock Atari MegaSTE / TT internal keyboard mylars have been replaced with the New Best Upgraded / Lifetime keyboard mylar.  Basically the only difference between an US and PAL (about 6+ International Country specific version keyboards) is the Atari PAL versions have a smaller length left shift key cap with a PAL key cap to the right next to it.  Also the International version MegaSTE / TT key caps markings that are International Country specific, like the UK Pound (money) symbol on the #3 key cap.  When used on a US Atari MegaSTE / TT computer, they will operate like a normal US keyboard.  What turns on the International different key cap functions / displays on monitor screen on the MegaSTE / TT Keyboard functions is the different International Atari ST Language disks or International Atari TOS versions used to 1st set up the MegaSTE / TT hard drive.  If your are a touch typist, the different International keycap symbols will not make a difference.  Best officially sold out of all Atari MegaSTE / TT external Keyboards close to 10+ years ago.  We were recently breaking down one of the thousands of pallets of Atari goods we got out of the local Sunnyvale Atari warehouses years ago and find the small cache of used Atari MegaSTE / TT keyboards.   CB102099-RE  $269.95

TT / MegaSTE Internal US Keyboard Mylar.  Best sold out of the Best upgraded replacement very popular Atari Keyboard mylar about 10+ years ago.  We were recently breaking down a pallet of Atari goods we put away 15+ years ago and have not even touched that pallet since then.  In one of the old Atari boxes we found a small stash of these new Best US keyboard upgraded keyboard mylars.  All of sudden, our 39+ year Atari Super tech remembered he had stashed away those mylars for his Atari Tech area back then and completely forgot about them.   He said we were selling them so fast, he was worried we would sell out of them soon back then.  This is a Best made Upgraded / Better made replacement MegaSTE / TT Keyboard Mylar with a new Silkscreened protective circuit trace safety top covering (compared to the Mitsumi made keyboard mylars with exposed circuit traces that crack all of the time) and 2 extended circuit traces connecting lengths (compared to the 2 stock Keyboard connection mylar strip lengths) so in the future if the ends of the connecting strip circuit traces wear off, you can trim off the end of the 2 connecting strips to expose new fresh connecting circuit traces.  This is an upgrade feature Best has been put on just about every Atari upgraded replacement Keyboard Mylar we have made for the last 35+ years.  Replaces Atari stock TT / MegaSTE Mylar internal part number 56B625A that always fails on the ESC key function and many more on the left side of the  TT / MegaSTE external Keyboard key caps functions.  CB102045  $49.95    Limit 2 total

99.9% of Atari TT Owners have never seen the 1989 Atari Engineering prototype 2 Meg ST plug in card (left card).  It is about 3/4 of the size of the Final Atari production run (right card) of the Atari 2 MB TT ST plug in Ram Cards.  Best has several Atari early Prototype Atari TT motherboards that this smaller Atari Prototype 2 MB ST ram cards fit onto.   The early versions of the Atari TT 2 MB cards had socketed Ram chips.   The final Atari TT production run of the TT ST 2 MB plug in ram cards used SMT Ram chips (card above).  It is possible for a very very good TT Atari Tech to convert the Atari 2 MB ST plug in socketed ram cards over to an Atari TT 8 MB Ram card.  A couple of unused legs off the surface MMU chip connected up the the ram chips leads on the bottom side of the PCB and 16 plug in 1 Meg dip chips.  Our 39+ year Atari Super tech has converted over 5 to 7+ stock Atari TT 2 MB plug in ram cards to 8 MB TT plug in Ram cards in the past.  Best still has a few of the Atari TT 2 MB socketed plug in ram cards in stock.  These Prototype TT 2 Mb plug in ram cards came right out of the Atari Engineering lab at Atari Corp headquarters.  Best got the rights to buy all of the Atari hardware left in the Atari Corp headquarters when they closed that Atari Sunnyvale Building down.

At the end of the Atari TT Computer life cycle (after Atari stopped producing them), Atari TT Computers were used in another commercial application.  If you are old enough to remember when those free standing kiosks / stands 1st started to show up shopping malls, one of those kiosks would custom Embroider T shirts and hats while you waited.  In a percentage of those sales kiosks across the US, used an Atari TT Computer to control the Custom Embroidering machine.  That Embroider company that used Atari TT computers was located in Texas.

The two DB-9 black Joystick cables are connected up to the ST Joystick/Mouse ports and back to the Loopback green PCB (most ST computers require you to crisis cross (not one to one) these DB-9 shorting cables back to the loop back PCB to get the proper port diagnostic results).  The short black or gray DB-25 Parallel cable is connected to the ST printer port and loop backboard.  The short gray ST DB-19 DMA cable is connected to the ST DMA port and the loop backboard.  The 5 pin Din shorting cable is connected up to both ST Midi Ports (one end of this Midi cable has a Red LED molded into the translucent connector housing to see the Diagnostic Midi Send and Receive sent signals).  The DB-25 Serial port shorting connector is connected to the ST Modem / RS232 external Port.

Atari Tech Tip on the Loopback ST PCB board.  Our Atari Super Tech strongly recommends you tape the anti Static pink bubble bag the Loopback board comes in (or tape a piece of thick and oversized piece of cardboard) to the exposed back side / solder side of the Loopback PCB board, to prevent it from shorting out / damaging the different I.C.ís on the top side of Loop back PCB should the back side of the exposed PCB come in contact with any metal.
