Hi, I am having an issue with getting a simple display going. What's supposed to happen is a brown smiley face is supposed to appear.on the screen. Instead, all I get is a black screen with nothing being shown. I tried using the debugger, but couldn't figure out what was going on as it kept getting stuck on the line checking to see if the players y position is equal to the current scanline until the overscan period.

http://atariage.com/forums/topic/207387-broken-atari-2600-with-black-screen/ Followed the advice on here with no success. Mine works first time, then when you power off and on (or switch carts) it gets a black screen or the game screen with crashed graphics. Mine is a little unusual in that when I took it apart it had obviously had cola spilled into it (sticky and brown). I've cleaned it up as much as I can and it is working but I want it to work properly. I have other 2600's if switching out a chip may help but can I switch chips from a vader into a light sixer? Or is the work first time/fail second time symptomatic of a different issue (capacitor/resistor etc)? Paul
I recently bought an Adam Standalone and it would boot to the word processor but the tape deck didn't seem to detect the buck rodges tape. It would just reset to the word processor. I took the top cover off and unplugged and replugged the connectors. When I turned it back on the adam would only boot with a black screen. With a coleco game in it would display properly, but when the adam was reset it just goes black. I tried disassembling the adam and removing and reinserting all the socketed chips, but that didn't make a difference. The printer that is powering the console works just fine with my other adam, so i wouldn't think it is a power issue. Anyone have any suggestions or is it just toast?
