Hello friends - I just recently broke out my original 7800 and hooked it up to my HD TV using a Gold-Plated Phono-to-F Adapter. When I turn the system on, the screen goes black (no snow) and has two grayish-white vertical lines that go the length of the screen. I've tried two different Gold-Plated Phono-to-F Adapter's with the same result. I've also tried analog channels 2, 3 and 4 on the TV and it only happens on channel 3 (snow on 2 and 4). Same result with or without a cartridge. Any ideas from the group? Thanks -
Hello, I recently acquired a 130XE that works great, the only problem is that there are faint bands/lines on the left side of the screen. I originally used an S-Video cable from eBay and thought the problem was with my LCD monitor, but they also show up when I use my Commodore 1084S Amiga monitor and a Chroma/Luma cable. I can adjust the color/contrast/brightness and that helps until the background color changes and they are visible again. After reading through the forums I found a few posts regarding 9 lines on the left side of the screen on a 5200 S-Video mod being "ANTIC noise during a DRAM refresh" and I am guessing I have the same problem. Anybody have any ideas on a fix? I have the later revision with 64x4 RAM. I've attached pics showing the lines, I turned up the contrast to make them more visible to the camera.

Return or try to fix? Makes no difference if game is inserted or not. I removed/re installed RCA cable onto the mother board twice. I am using $2 female RCA to Coax connector into antenna jack. Advice appreciated! Link to vid: http://youtu.be/wmpS2_PiNWw
Extra Vertical Lines using left over 4bytes of memory on each side of screen? I recall reading somewhere a while back, that there is a tiny bit of memory leftover after startup that allows you to get 2 vertical lines on each side of the screen. Does anyone know what I'm talking about? And if so, would you please tell me how? I know it was something very, very simple.. but I just can't remember. Thanks.
