Based on description of seeing some fuzz on the screen, I am guessing your TV does have the older analog tuner and not a digital channel tuner? Still, if a newer TV could be the channel tuner. Try a VCR as a go between picking up the Atari RF and feeding the VCR to Composite input of the TV.

 

More likely the cart slot which is notorious on the 2600 Jr and 7800 which prevent full insertion of game carts. Try different games?
