Odyssey 2 video problem

Recommended Posts

I've got an older Odyssey 2 (the kind with the beige switchbox that it needs), and I'm having video trouble. I've attached a quick video of what it does. It looks like it switches on for a split second, turns off, repeat..? I had a buddy go over and check the power supply, check the traces on the board, and still no difference. We also tried tapping the RF directly off the internal RF convertor, bypassing the proprietary cable that comes off the back.

 

I'm hoping this is a problem someone else has encountered.

If possible, try it with a different tv. Also, just to be sure, the O2 can be set to channel 3 or 4- try both settings.

Is that a flat screen tv? My O2 did the same thing on my modern tv but worked great on a CRT.

If it doesnt work on a CRT then one of the main chips could be bad.

Can you take it apart and post pictures of the board top and bottom.
