Hi Larry,

no sorry to disappoint you. I am German and by 10 years younger than him 
And I have never been any good at programming.

The first name seems to be the only thing he and me have in common.

Regards,

Christian

@Larry: It seems to me that your problem mentioned in this thread

http://users.boardnation.com/~chesscomputers/index.php?board=1;action=display;threadid=1468;start=0

has been solved now. 

Sometimes things take some time.

Regards,  Tom

Hi Tom, yep it's fixed now, over two years later 
While it niggled me, it did'nt affect the machine's operation.
In any case, the Atlanta plays too darned strong, I actually
enjoy a casual game against the humble Fidelity SC9. Keep
the Atlanta for a pet...

all the best,
Larry

... and when you get it open, you will find the flat ribbon leads
going from the mainboard to the underside of the playing
surface. Just gently pull them loose and re-insert them. My
guess is that you have a simple oxidation problem, and this
easy procedure will cure it.
  hope it works out ok...

  Well as an add on to my last post on this matter, this has
inspired me to fix an annoying glitch in my own Atlanta. Since
I've owned it the 'pawn' icon has not shown. I took the back
off and found the problem...a bit of sticky goo on the contact
of the mainboard. I just removed it and...*presto*... the
Atlanta is fixed.
  I'll sleep better now,

Hi Martin,


remove the rubber feet; the remaining 3 screws are there.

Hi Martin,

        The sensory squares on my Atlanta recently
        stopped working.  I haven't been able to open
        it up to see what the problem might be. I removed
        1 screw in the battery compartment, but didn't see
        any others. I'm not sure if you're suppose to pull
        it apart to open it, but I'm afraid to force it open.
        Does anybody know how to open an Atlanta up?
        Or what might be causing the sensory squares not
        to work?? Thanks for any help anybody can offer...
