Hello there, As the name might suggest I need some help from you fine people. I've read the forum for a while but didn't join until I'd finally got a 2600. I was very happy as I managed to get a nice light sixer (despite it being the dirtiest thing I've ever seen) but I'm having some problems connecting it to a new TV, I've followed all the instructions I could find but I'm just getting a weird black and white pattern on screen. Attached are pictures of the screen and board (including one before I cleaned it!) Any help would be much appreciated! P.S. The board seems different to most other examples I could find online?
(First post. Long time lurker, couldn't remember my login info) So, after a ton of convincing, I finally got the wife on board with getting a floor model console TV. First, a little background information. Several years ago I picked up a Atari Flashback 2. I loved it to death. So naturally when they released a Sega Genesis, Colecovision and Intellivision Flashback, I had to have them. After all, I'm one of those, "I'd rather emulate than damage my rapidly aging hardware" people. Well, after my trusty CRT died, I decided to just use the big TV in the living room. After all, that was most convenient for those quick late night nostalgia trips. However, it never felt right. Well after about the 50th time hearing, "Wow! Those games look like hot dog poop" I decided it was time to get another CRT; but which one? After searching for a SCART monitor, I finally decided that for optimum nostalgia, a floor TV was required. For a while I was after a early to mid eighties model, until I came across a late 2002 Zenith 27" console. It was perfect! PiP tuner, multiple rca inputs, component inputs. Plus, it was only twenty bucks. Sold! So, a three-and-a-half hour drive later it was sitting in my living room next to the 55" LED. I gotta tell you, it was worth it. These games look amazing. My kids don't even bother the Xbox anymore. It's all, "Can we play Sonic? When can we play Pitfall? I want to play Mario!"... ...and I've never been prouder. tl;dr: Bought a new TV for gaming. Works great!
