I have a 4-port 5200 that recently started experiencing graphical glitches with certain games. Moon Patrol and Space Invaders, for instance, start normally but become corrupted as the game progresses. Pitfall appeared as a jumbled mess and can't even be started. The 4-port is one that has been modified to accept the VCS adapter. 


I also have a 2-port 5200 and tried both Moon Patrol and Space Invaders on there and both work fine. Pitfall, as expected, doesn't work. 


My phone is dead at the moment so I can't share images of what's occurring but I will update as soon as I can. If anyone has any ideas of what I can check in the meantime, please let me know.

Sounds like a couple RAM IC's failing. Pitfall not working is expected after such a mod is done.

I'm just amazed an Activision cart works. None of my Activision 5200 carts work even after extensive cleaning. Yet all of my Atari and Parker Bros carts work like champs.
