GAMATIC
7600

The Gamatic 7600 is a classic pong system sold worldwide under many different brands, as the Grandstand T.V. Game Model 2000 for example, or the Univox 41N.

The system itself seems to have been made in Korea. The electronic board is labeled "F'GAMATIC-7600". Indeed many Gamatic 7600 systems identical to this one can be found worldwide, the earliest one being a japanese Gamatic 7600 system released in 1976.

The case design is not particularly original: black rectangle with two detachable controllers and a wide control panel at the top. The controllers are also rectangular with a dial to move the bat on screen and a red button each, one to serve (left player) and the other to reset the game (right player).

As almost all systems powered by the TMS-1965 chipset from Texas Instruments, the Univox 41N offers 4 pong games : Hockey, Pelote, Tennis and Entrainement delivered by this specialised chip (the TMS-1965 was pin-to-pin compatible with the more popular AY-3-8500 chip from General Instruments)

On the control panel can be found the usual setting switches: ball speed (slow/fast), automatic service (on/off), game selection, rebound angle (20°/40°), paddle size (small/big) and power switch. The system can be powered by six CM2 battery cells or through an external power supply (9v DC, 360 mW).


 

I have just recently cleaned it up and put it back in operation, very nice machine, robust and reliable.
My contribution is a VIDEO OUT RCA jack in order to be plugged to a monitor or a modern TV:

I also have one of these but one of the main resistors has burnt-out (first resistor off the positive feed, after the large cap). Think the first value was brown but can''t make anything else out, if anyone could help I would be very grateful.

Hi I have one of these lovely old consoles.

It was in a very sorry state when I got it, but its been cleaned up, resoldered where required and broken parts fixed.

It works really well and its just so refreshing to to play a simple yet addictive game of pong.
