vertical bars could be caused by a cartridge not properly inserted, or dirty. Please try to clean contacts, by remove dust on the cartridge edge connector, then by cleaning softly by using some cotton (damp with alcohol) and a pen eraser. Also remove durty from the Atari's cartridge connector.
Fixed your quote. Use high percentage alcohol (90+) on a Q-Tip to clean the cart connectors, and you can wet the end of some thin cardboard with alcohol to clean the console connectors. Never use water, and you don't need to drench anything.
