I hooked up my old Atari 400 on TV today and I was shocked: Everything is displayed correctly, but there are no colors (BASIC screen is grey but should be blue). Other computers work properly with that TV. I used another rf-cable but same problem. Putting in a game cart I noted that sound is missing, too. The internal speaker (for keyboard click) doesn't work either. I opened the case and checked all sockets and connectors - everything seems to be in place. Any idea what the cause of this failure might be?
Hi guys, I am looking for books that describe the history of Atari 2600 development (time line, hardware variations etc.) and its worldwide marketing (promotional stuff, sales figures etc.) in detail. So far I am aware of 'Racing the Beam' and 'The Ultimate History of Video Games'.
