Black Screen but only on 2nd power up?

Recommended Posts



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)?
