The Atari Computer Games handbook with schematics is now on Internet Archive #Gaming #Vintage #Atari #Arcade
Thanks to @GamingAlexandri, the Atari/Kurz-Kasch Computer Games Operator’s Handbook with schematics is now scanned and shared on the Internet Archive.
At the time of publication, electronic logic was the new kid on the block, and Atari was concerned that arcade operators used to servicing electromechanical machines might not be as well-versed in diagnostics and repair for their new wave of arcade games.
Now we arrive at the schematics. Most of these aren’t unavailable in some form, but I believe at least one of them is. Regardless, hopefully new, high-quality scans of already available schematics can still be beneficial.
The service manual for Rebound, an early 1974 release from Atari, is included in the handbook.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
