Been enjoying the Intellivision for a bit. Then went back to play Atari 2600 for awhile. When I decided to hook back up the Intellivision, I started to have major issues getting LTO Flash cartridge to run. Tried every game I have for the system and they all work perfect. 

 

So the issue is that the screen keeps blinking and showing some garbage on screen. Ive tried all the obvious solutions. Took the system apart to check out things and nothing looked out of the ordinary. 

 

When I plug in the cartridge to the computer it reads fine and I can remove and add roms. I will attatch a video to show symptoms.

 

Any insight to whats going on would be greately appreciated.

Could you provide a little more info about the system:

 

Which model (Intellivision I, II, Super Pro, etc.)

Video standard (NTSC, PAL)

Any mods done on the system (RGB, A/V, etc.)

 

The cart does try a software reset of the system, IIRC, when initially powered up.  That's likely the 'blinking' that you see.

Another question:

 

At about 2:04 into the video, your menu layout (right hand side) suddenly goes empty.  What did you do in between 2:04 and 2:05?

 

Remember that until you click the 'Send to LTO Flash!' button, nothing on the cartridge actually changes - you're just changing the "todo list" that is stored on your computer that will be used to reconcile the differences between what that list has and what's actually on the cartridge.

Hey thx for the reply. Its a Intellivision I. NTSC and no mods have been done to it.

Yeah I erased all the roms and added them back on the cartridge to show that function was working.

I'm contacting gsampson35 over email.  I don't hop on AA very often, but intvsteve alerted me to this thread.  We'll get it sorted.
