Condition

Entire system was reconditioned by former owner and shows very minor wear to some paint and minor marks on some labels.

2016.007.001a - Atari 2600 Console
The system and controllers have been thoroughly cleaned. The system was tested with an Atari Service Diagnostic cartridge, and the video signal colors have been set to their original specifications. All the console switch contacts have been cleaned, including the cartridge port. Also, all the solder joints for the power jack, cartridge port, switches, and controller ports have been reflowed.

Notes

This system exhibits the highest level of home-restoration we have at the museum. With reflowed traces on system boards and rebuilt potentiometers this represents what could be considered a ground-up restoration of this piece of hardware.
