Hey everyone, I'm looking to sell an Atari 2600 "Vader" console that is having some issues. I took a chance on it at a thrift shop and cleaned it up a little bit but in my testing the unit, it does not play any games. It successfully receives power but does not display anything when a game is inserted. It does, however, power on when no game is inserted and displays random lines/video patterns and varying audio tunes. Not sure if this is a easy fix or not, but figured someone on here would be up to the repair task!

 

I would be happy to include the console manual, power supply and an RF adapter for plug and play on a modern TV. 

 

Shoot me an offer and I can get you a shipping quote if you provide your zip code. Thanks!

How does $20 + shipping sound?

One last bump before it goes to eBay (and likely sells for more than I'm offering it for here on the Forums)...

you think you can get more than $20 for a broken Vader?
Yeah, good luck

considering the power supply is worth $15, RF adapter $5 and the manual $6 (all based off a quick search of recent sales), yes, I don't think it will be too difficult to get more than $20 for this, especially if I elect to split this up and sell things separately. broken vaders on their own (without any of these accessories that I'm currently offering with it) go for $20. thanks for the support!  :D
