  1. Hello everyone, I recently picked up a sears telegames 6 switch Atari 2600 at a flea market. When I got home to test it out, it had this weird screen issue that I had never seen before. What happens is that when I turn the system on, only the top right 1/4 of the screen appears, then after 7/8 of the screen is drawn in about 30 seconds it then stops. Also the video is black and white. I can't even see Pacman. And when I switch to console to black and white, the screen displays a different "shade" of black and white so I know it's not the switch. But my main issue is that I have no idea how to fix this. I've attached a picture of the screen when it is "done" drawing for reference, and the picture is when the console is set to color. I have opened up the Atari and nothing seems wrong. No broken solderer joints, no burst capacitors, the cartridge slot has been cleaned. I have tried other games as well and they all don't display correctly either and have the same problems and they all work fine in my colecovison expansion module. I've tried a CRT and an LCD television with the same results and I'm using an RCA to coax connector instead of the RF switch. Heck, even the ac adapter is a new 9 volt plug from radioshack that I use with my pong console, and the RCA cable I'm using is new. Sorry for such a long post but I wanted to cover all my bases so people know it's not something obvious. In short, I have no clue what's wrong and was wondering if anybody could deduce the issue of this console? Thanks in advance.
  2. I have been really getting into Activision Skiing lately and have started to experience a problem with the game or possibly my console. Whenever I load up the game it only generates very short courses for me to ski. For example, game number 3 is supposed to generate 30 gates to ski through, but only generates 6. Turning the console on and off, unplugging and replugging the console back in, removing and reseating the cartridge, cleaning the contacts on the cartridge and the console, exercising the switches on the console and turning it back on afterwards doesn't seem to help. (It's a Sears Tele-Games Video Arcade "heavy sixer") The only thing that seems to work is just playing some other games and then coming back to skiing after 10-20 minutes. I'm wondering if it has something to do with the console "warming up" or something? Anyone here have this experience / could shed some light on this problem I'm having?
  3. I was given a PAL 7800 recently. The unit came as-is, untested with neither the power supply or controller, but 2 games including DKJr (One of my favorites), so I was pretty chuffed. I searched online for some info on a quick fix, and ended up hardwiring a SEGA MegaDrive 2 PSU. The console powers on and plays games! However, after a minute or two of play, the screen will crackle and the picture will disappear, only to glith back to normal seconds later. It repeats this process every few minutes. This issue has reoccurred every time I've tested the system. Any pointers folks?
  4. Hi all, I picked up a VGS from a carboot for £20. So I plugged it all in and I managed to get it tuned correctly etc. However when I turn it on, the colour comes through strange. ( I am running it through an old Game/TV converter that I've had for years, I aim to replace this for a coaxial converter). The main issue that I have is when I play the console with just one controller in, It works okay, However when plugging in the 2nd controller into the port it will fuzz and then cut out. Does anyone have any ideas?
  5. So, I'm in Visual Batari Basic, and I start compiling. Everything seems fine, and Stella seems to be connected to Visual BB. So, I click run (Expecting at least SOMETHING to happen), and it literally says (On the bottom) "Could not locate SED.EXE"... Now, I honestly have no clue what that is. I search it up in the Windows search thing, and it's not anywhere. It also says "Recompilation Failed". Finally, when I press the play button, it claims "Could not locate default.bas.bin"... Can someone please help me on what's the issue? I would like to know... Thanks!
  6. Hello all! I recently received an Atari Jaguar from my uncle that is in pretty pristine condition since it's been in a case for the past 12 years. I was excited to try it out so I put in a game and press the button, I wait a few seconds, and nothing! The red light turned on, but nothing showed up on the screen. Sometimes the screen will show up as a dark green color. I tried wiggling the video cord (The kind with the RF box) but to no avail. I have attempted to blow on the cartridge and reinsert it at least 50 times. I'm still using the original power and video cords for the system. I have opened my Jaguar a few times to find out the problem. Does anybody know what can be the problem and tell me how I can fix it? So basically, It powers on, but no video or sound show up and I'm using the original cords that came with the system.
  7. I've recently purchased a non-working Sega CD off of e-Bay that had a problem with the tray constantly ejecting and not spinning discs. After some minor gear realignment and a belt change I was able to get the tray working 100% but for some reason I am still not able to load any games . Strange thing about this is I am still able to play audio CDs just fine. I've tested the games it came with on a modchiped Xbox and they played fine so I am begining to think this may be some kind of laser issue. I've already tried all the basic cleaning steps and am ready to consult the experts. I want to bring this thing back to life! P.S. Any experience with generic KSS-240A laser pickups?
  8. Hi All, I recently got a Atari 2600 Vader (4 switch). The problem I have is with the video. The bottom of the screen has a verical bar on each side below the main picture. Also, the left side of the screen I see tearing. Anyone know what can cause this? Thank You.
  9. Hi, I have a Lynx II that I got a while ago, but never had an Ac adapter to use with it. I just bought one from Best, but it did not work at first. I discovered this morning that it will work, but only if I don't insert the plug all the way into the Lynx. While this works, it is not a good solution since any movement will cause the Lynx to turn off. I am thinking that the power jack is at least semi-broken, but I am not sure on that. I know that Best sells new power jacks, but I am horrible with soldering and would be afraid of breaking the Lynx. Do you all agree that it is likely the power jack? Also, does anyone here or on another site do Lynx repairs? Thanks Aaron
  10. Yo guys, I'm having problems with a colecovision i found in my grandads garage that used to belong to my uncle. The unit used to work absolutely fine till the day he put it away. Ive already done some troubleshooting with it, I've actually replaced the power switch and ive tested the voltages from the power supply and all seems to be fine but no matter what i do, i can't get it to work properly. It keeps displaying garbled graphics and wont load games properly. Sometimes it shows the coleco load screen with game name but all the letters are screwed and may sometimes also go to the blue selection screen but wont do anything. I really wanna fix this thing in time for my uncles birthday for early next year as he has fond memories of it as a child. Here is a video i posted on youtube of the problems I'm having:
  11. I have the following set up: Sears Tele-Games Video Arcade "Heavy Sixer" • Replaced original RF cable with a RG6 Quad Shielded Coaxial cable with Gold plated ends connnected to the "Heavy Sixer" using a gold plated Coaxial to RF adapter • RF cable (the RG6 Coaxial) into DVD Recorder (Toshiba D-R4) Coaxial Input Link to more info on Toshiba D-R4: http://www.amazon.com/Toshiba-D-R4-Multi-Drive-DVD-Recorder/dp/B0007UVYOY/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top • Component output of DVD Recorder into Vizio E390-A1 Television Component inputs (RCA for audio cable for Audio Left and Right channels) Link to more info on Vizio E390-A1 http://www.amazon.com/VIZIO-E390-A1-39-inch-1080p-60Hz/dp/B009IBXEH8/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1422643716&sr=8-1&keywords=Vizio+E390-A1 The picture looks great! I'm very happy with this set up except for one thing. When playing some games a channel display intermittently appears on the upper right corner of the screen that says "3" or sometimes "3 Stereo SAP". It's not always there, but appears intermittently and it only does this on some games - not all. For example, Space Invaders does not provoke this problem while Ms. Pac-Man does. I tried unhooking the audio connection to the TV because it appeared to be related to the game sound (i.e. in Ms. Pac-Man if I'm eating dots then there is the sound that goes with that action and the unwanted display shows up, but if I stop and don't move it goes away). Nevertheless, removing the audio cables did not make a difference. I have included a picture below to depict the problem. Does anyone have suggestions on how to fix this issue? Thanks! Dave
