  1. Okay, so I bought a 2600 Jr. with 41 games from a guy on Craigslist for $30. He said it worked the last time he played it, which was about 2 years ago. I took it home and plugged it in, and (surprise!) it didn't work. I've spent time googling all day today and yesterday, and can't find a solution to my problem. I've hooked it up to an old CRT, and when I turn it on I see the game and can hear the sound for about half of a second before it cuts to a black screen. I've tried using a different RCA-Coax hookup at a local retro store, still no good. Plus, the RCA-Coax it came with works on my NES. (Yes, for those wondering, it's a manual switch box) So on to solution 2. I tried cleaning the contacts via rubbing alcohol and q-tips on a cartridge and putting the game in and pulling it out several times. Still no good. I've tried multiple games, and I get the same thing every time. I'm going back to the retro store to try using a different power adapter tomorrow, the one that came with it doesn't warm up when plugged in, but the light on the console comes on. It's really hard to tell when the cover is on. Is this normal for the Jr.? Oh, I also cracked it open and aside from a few rust spots here and there, it looks to be in pretty good condition. All the soldering is solid and I can't really see anything wrong with it. I was just wondering if anyone could tell me if I'm wasting my time trying to fix it. I'm hoping it's not a chip problem, but I don't know much about the 2600 to tell.
  2. I was wondering if anyone knows what is wrong when I tried to reset my atari 2600 with the reset switch on my Atari 2600 Jr it doesn't work but when I open up the console and jump the corresponding pin on the 6532 RIOT Chip I am able to reset and do the game select functions but If I plug in the ribbon cable into the motherboard that goes to the reset and game select buttons It doesn't do anything. I tried bridging it with wire but not effect the only thing It does when I do that it just stays in a constant reset loop like what would happen if you just held down the reset button. Any suggestions or idea would be much appreciated Thanks
  3. I've got a "glitch gremlin" in my N64 that's so bad, for a while today I was convinced my N64 was dead--every game I played froze either on startup or within 2-3 minutes of gameplay. It would freeze and get all scrambled. Sort of like a NES game. Now to be completely honest....I might have caused or exacerbated this issue.... Earlier today, I took out my expansion pack, cleaned it with rubbing alcohol, and put it back in (this was in an attempt to fix a different unrelated issue) then, the above-mentioned crashing started to happen. After a while I came to the conclusion that my over-use of only 70-ish% pure rubbing alcohol maybe have caused some moisture to get into the console to cause this new problem. Soooo.... I gave the N64 a while for the alcohol to evaporate and played it just now. For the first 20-25 minutes of gameplay it seemed fine, like the alcohol and whatever made up that unaccounted-for 30 something % had evaporated and the freezing was gone. Then it froze/crashed again Right now I'm letting the N64 sit there, on but with no one playing it. It hasn't crashed but then again the glitch might have something to do with high CPU use, or whatever that equivalent is in console gaming (don't know the right terminology) Anyone had a similar problem? I really need help here.....
  4. Hey I need some help... My beloved sears telegames sunnyvale heavy sixer console has ran into some issues with it's audio/video output. So at first it would only display black and white, the color switch had no effect. No matter what position it was in, it was always black and white. Turned it off and on a few times and the color came back, but it was still very dull. Color switch still had no effect. As of now it displays very fuzzy and dull color. And has no sound. Tried different games, different televisions, even different video wires. Nothing helps... I suspect an internal issue with the console... Please Help! I want to get her working again.
  5. So I have a Sega CDX and I couldn't be happier with it. But I recently got a game that seems to not want to play. Its "My Paint". Basically its like a painting game for kids (hey, I needed it for the collection....lol). So the game starts up and the scrolling title screen works fine and as soon as I press start the screen turns black. I thought originally it was loading the main menu or something but it just sits on this black screen forever. I thought maybe it was a scratch on the disc so I looked and turns out yes, there were some moderate scratches. So I took it back to the store and the resurfaced the disc for me no problem, disc looks great. Put it back in the CDX and the same thing happened. So I'm wondering if maybe this is one of the few games that won't play in a CDX. I've heard of other games that do this like Terminator and Jurassic Park, but Terminator works great on mine. Anybody have a clue? Any ideas would be appreciated, thanks! Tyler
