As I was reading this post about the Tron, I was thinking….Tron is a pretty well known name having crossed from movies into arcade games and a ton of other merchandising. How could anyone be unsure of what it was called? I thought Tron was a household name on some level.

But, I guess it could have been Robotron.

Oh, maybe that guy smokie-da dopie.

My friend is younger, and missed out on that era. You’d be amazed how many younger people (under 30) have no clue what Tron is.

Jeff,

Went to turn on my TRON upright today and I have a screen just like the one above your Moon Lander picture. I restored mine several years ago and it had been fully functional. It had been a while since I powered it up though. All the boards (PCBs / MCR Power Supply) are all original. The power supply has that usual corrosion and messed up traces on the backside/battery corner of the board. I’m guessing it’s dead. Where did you order the switching power supply set-up you used to do away with all the original “guts”? I’m hoping one of those will get me back to operating condition. Any and all help greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Gilbert
