Hi all,

 

I recently pulled my Atari 2600jr from storage for testing. I only have one cart to play with (Battlezone) and it's not really working.

 

I'm connecting it via RF using the original cable. There is sound but video is very very distorted and from time to time disappears altogether. Basically it's unusable in this state. What could be the culprit?

 

Thanks

Are you using a coax adapter? If not, do you have one you could try out on a coax-equipped TV set?

If it works with the little RF-coax piece, that would give some additional info.

I forgot to mention I'm in Europe. We don't use coax connectors in TVs.

You may need a special adapter, try here:

And if you have an RF to COAX adapter slip that onto THIS
