Right, they don?t need a key.

Well I guess it?s your 7800 than.

You could try to clean the ?pins? of your cartridge ports (I always use
isopropyl alcohol and a Q-tip for that kind of job?s).

Ah sorry, I forgt to mention, that I only have 2600 carts. The 2600 carts
don't need such a key, right ?

Sorry I don?t know much about the startup procedure but maybe you try to
play PAL Cartridges on a NTSC Device?

NTSC Devices expect a valid key stored in a specific range of the cartridge
that PAL Carts don?t have (PAL Devices don?t use this encryption because of
export restrictions).

Do you know, how the 7800 detects if a valid cartridge is plugged in ?

If you have trouble with more than one cartridge than I guess your 7800 have
a problem?

Hi !

 

I am having trouble with a 7800. How does the 7800 detect that a cartridge

is plugged into its cartridge port ? It starts up the built in Asteroids for
some of

the cartridges I have here, even if they are plugged in ...

 

Is the 7800 faulty or the cartridges, or is this a common problem ?

 

Armin
