I purchased this off ebay for a low price. It is in excellent condition and even came with the box, cardboard insert and manual. Came with a Commodore computer RF switch, but I am using a standard RF to COAX adapter.
Problem is, when I turn it on,
I hear nothing but static through the speakers and the picture is black & white. There is no 2/3 channel switch and it only seems to work on channel 3. I tried channels 2 & 4 as well, but picture is all garbled up as expected. I've even tried swapping the RF cable.
It seems to be getting a decent signal to TV
, because the TV actually goes into STEREO sound mode (which I found odd as well)
I am using a standard 2600 power supply which is the correct power source as well per manual.
UPDATE: Just watched some videos. The sound is normal out of the TV. The sound comes out of the unit itself ONLY. So problem is with black & white only.
I've opened it up and see nothing immediately stick out as bad. Thoughts?
The day I received it:
On channel 3 - Clean picture, but black & white picture:
What it looks like on channel 2 & 4:
