Hi everyone, I have an Atari 2600 "Light Sixer" with a mysterious problem (see video below). Once turned on and configured with the correct video rate, the console emits interference and a beep but shows nothing (with or without cartridge). However it is definitely not the game as I tried it on another Atari and it works fine. I cleaned all the motherboard contacts, including the various chips (TIA, CPU and RIOT), I cleaned the cartridge reader pins and also the six switches, but the problem persists. I also tried to adjust the trimmer of the RF modulator but nothing changes, obviously I first checked with the multimeter if the RF cable had continuity and it works. What do you think could be the problem? Probably the RIOT damaged? Or the RF modulator? What could I check with the multimeter? Thanks! :] The video problem Front view without plastic shell Motherboard front view If you need more photos let me know:]
Hi. I recently bought an Atari Jaguar of eBay. It is PAL. It seems to power on and shows a green light. But when I hook it up to the TV, I see a distorted image (what you see when you don’t insert an Atari 2600 cartridge properly) I’ve been told by someone that the console is working as it should and the image I see is caused by the PAL system being used in an NTSC country. What do you think? By the way, I am using the AV signal. Is there something I need to buy to get it working? Thank you!
Hi All, I did the composite video mod a while ago on my Atari 2600. Didn't think so much of it. All the cartridges seem to work ok. A little bit of tearing/visible lines on the very left of screen. However, it does work and play fine. Played a round of Combat and the number at the top were fine. Anyway, when I use my Harmony cartridge. I can barely read the text. However, playing the games everything seems to play as the original cartridges do. Not sure if there is a problem with the cartridge, the mod itself, etc... Anyone else experience this? BTW, I am in NTSC land. Thanks.
