Atari 65XE / 130XE / 600XL / 800 XL Repair



Repair your Atari 65XE / 130XE / 600XL / 800XL computer.

Parts are in addition to this and you will need to post the item to us.  The price for shipping the repair back will be added to the cost.

If we think the item will cost much more to repair, we will discuss the way forward with you or return your money less the cost of shipping the item back.

Average turnaround is 2-3 weeks but please bear with us during busier times.

We only use quality parts. We always try to use new old stock or newly manufactured parts as close to the originals as we can manage.

If your Atari requires a custom chip replacement, we will contact you with the cost.  Custom chips such as GTIA, POKEY, ANTIC etc. are not covered in the basic cost.

Included in the basic cost, we will perform the following upgrade as part of the repair:

  • We will replace all of the electrolytic capacitors with good quality aluminium types.

Please contact us on to discuss and get a free estimate.

  1. Justin M

    Great service for my Atari 800XL repair. The problem was diagnosed quickly and I was kept up to date throughout the process. Really fast turn around and a nice video, prior to dispatch, showing the machine being tested and working. Would highly recommend.
