Help with my Atari 800

Recommended Posts

I recently bought a new approved Atari 800 power brick from 8bitclassics.com but when you turn the tv on and the Atari the picture changes a Little bit like its trying to get power but it won’t boot to any carts or anything and the 2 red power LED’s don’t come on?


What should I check?

I'm not so sure 1.5A at 9VAC is enough to power the 800.  What would that be - only 13.5 watts, I think the higher output Atari power supply was 31 watts, which would be 3.5A.
