Magnavox Odyssey Troubleshooting

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure if I'm in the right forum, but I don't know where else to go.

 

Anyway, I recently picked up a Magnavox Odyssey. I hooked it up, powered it on, and this is what it displays. I've tried all of the game cards and it's all the same issue. I've fiddled with the VHF box, but nothing seems to work.

 

I tested the controllers and from what I can tell they seem to work fine based off of what little action I can discern from the screen.

 

Anyone know what the problem might be? I'm not a tech person, but I assume that the issue lies with the video signal.

 

Thanks.

Yes. I would assume the problem lies with the capacitors, however I'm not tech savvy enough to be able to diagnose the problem myself.

Have you confirmed you are on the right channel? I believe the Odyssey has a channel selection switch inside the battery compartment for 3 and 4.
