Hi, it's been a while since I posted, so hello from the depths....

I recently got an Intellivision and I tried 3 different games, for each one, the picture scrolls. I tried adjusting how the cart was seated, jiggling the rf cable and it didn't change anything.

Am I missing something?

Thanks

What kind of TV do you have? I suspect your TV is an older LCD that doesn't like older RF inputs.

actually no... It's a really old Hitachi(hence my namesake) that has individual tuners for each channel button on the TV itself...

also make sure your channel switch on the bottom is on the right channel. try both channel 3 and 4 on system and tv to see which one looks better. also video switch could be wonky. since your tv is old enough you need to tune the channel in, but make sure switch on tv and system match.

Ok. I turned on the console and tuned around and got the picture to lock in, but the game randomly resets and freezes. I think something may be wrong on the inside. I'm going to open it soon and clean it out.

Instability like that could be a voltage problem,i hope its nothing to serious or something that can be easily replaced like a voltage regulator or capaciotor or something.
