I am a bit new to Atari's. I grew up in the NES age so thats where my experience is. I recently purchased an Atari 400 second hand with a couple of games and a couple of joysticks. No psu.
Anyway the PSU showed up today and the Atari 400 does not seem to be powering up. PSU is brand new Atari brand C017945. I cant seem to find my multi meter but I threw a test light on the PSU and it is turning on my test light.
at the console I did lightly sand the secondary connector because it was so grimey that it looked black, now it sort of has a semi copper hue to it thats hard to catch on a camera......still need to sand a little more?
I am getting no light no sound. This is with it not hooked to anything and no cart in the slot. Any suggestions on what I need to do to solve this?
