Wow. The pic shows a rather ancient console. Is this what you're working with? :D
OK, if this is the '80's model Atari, this has been around a very long time and probably has seen it's better days being knocked around, slammed to the floor, exposed to dust/moisture/extreme temperature fluctuations in the attic, so it's likely that the ICB (integrated circuit board) is damaged to some extent. My vote is on that.
However, if you're intent on having a go at playing this pile of historic... erm... technology, break out the can of compressed air (bought at computer stores) or an air compressor and spray out the game card socket, the cards themselves at the connectors and, since this is an analogue console, the switches and buttons as well.
Also make sure your connection to the tv is solid and that you're on the right channel selected on the back of your console.
This common problem .
there are about 9 solder balls connections
right under the G.P.U. Hot Spot and after repeated
heating /cooling cycles these connectionsbegan to fatigue and break open giving you R.R.o.D. or freeing
white -green vertical lines ... and no video. Solution is a proper x clamp mod and if
done right a most hardware error are eliminated .
go to sound settings and make sure you got the settings correctly there is a lot of different settings if somebody move the settings accidentally then they have to be reset how well here is how turn the main power switch off now put your finger in the on/off switch in front of the console now turn the main power switch on keep your finger in the on switch you will heard a bip this bip is when the system turns on keep your finger there until you heard a second bip then take your finger off now your video and audio settings have been reset
inspect your cables your a/v cables make sure there is no breaks in the cable at all if using a rf adaptor please make sure you are on the right channel and the rf adaptor is also on the right channel.
you may need new cables and if that does not work then its something internal on the unit.
i had the same problem till yesterday when i restarted it when it
started turning green for no reason and now when i turn it on i can
hear the dashboard loading up in the background but my picture is just
