Atari "Big Blue" Capacitor

Used in Atari

Tested and working Atari color raster game power transformer block.  Original Atari Transformer Part #A035888.  This is the power transformer unit used in Atari's color raster games, including Centipede, Millipede, Dig Dug, System 1 and 2 games and probably other raster games.  This assembly has a new "Big Blue" cap installed as the original was bad (a common failure on these units).

We believe this will also work with black and white vector games as well.  Item has been tested and works fine.
