You can use a coaxial cable that has both male ends (with the pins in the middle) and a RCA-coaxial adapter and they will both plug directly into the coaxial hack on your TV set. These things can be found at Radio Shack or other places for 3-10 bucks. Have fun!

You need a coaxial cable with an RF modulator. Better yet, there are several ORIGINAL Atari 7800 RF consoles for sale on eBay for $4 to $5 a pop. Have fun!

I need a power supply for atari 7800


the Sega Genesis model 1 power cord is the same voltage and amps as a 7800, if you know how to solder you can change the power port and use that power cord. or you can just hard wire a power cord on here is the site for that . http://saundby.com/atari7800mod/7800_powermod.html

I have recently purchased an atari 2600 that came with no rf cable. I understand that using the female phono to male f adapter will work to hook it up, but this leaves me needing to buy the phono cord...


Yes, I know this works because I have done it. I believe both types of cable are the same impedence but different ends so any combination should work. Cheers.

Tried connecting direct to both an LCD and older set using the coaxial lead straight from the console.Cannot get anything at all.Do I need an rf modulator or no.


Quite the opposite - The Atari 2600 sends a modulated RF signal over the cable, it needs to go to the ANTENNA port of the TV, and you need an adapter. On eBay, look for
ATARI 2600 RF TV SHIELDED CABLE + ADAPTER
http://www.atariage.com/howto/connect.html is a really good guide.

2600 atari


To connect your Atari to your TV, you'll need to get a "phono to f" adapter. These are available at RadioShack (part no. 278-255) for about $5.00 This adapter takes the phono plug from the Atari and changes it to a standard coaxial adapter. If your HD TV doesn't have an input for standard cable wires, you'll need to get yourself an RF modulator to switch the coax to RCA. If you have an old VCR with an unused cable input, that will work as well.

Press the reset button and try again. If you don't power the machine off completely before inserting the next cartridge, you may experience this problem.

How to hook up an atari 5200


THERE ARE 2 TYPES OF 5200 SYSTEMS, THE FIRST HAS A COMBINATION A/C R/F BOX. OTHERWISE YOU MAY JUST NEED AN ADAPTER TO CONVERT THE RCA END TO CABLE TYPE SCREW ON TO YOUR TV CABLE IN. SEE MY STORE ON EBAY dixneatoldthings for that piece

No A/V!


DOES THE SYSTEM POWER LITE GO ON? IF SO THE PROBLEM IS MOST LIKELY A DIRTY GAME. YOU NEED TO CLEAN EVERY GAME BEFORE PUTTING IT IN. MIX ALCOHOL AND WATER, 1 TO 1 AND USE A Q TIP TO CO UP AND DOWN THE CONTACTS. IF THEY ARE BEHIND A PLASTIC DOOR, STICK A SMALL SCREWDRIVER IN THE HOLE AND IT WILL MOVE BACK. OTHER THAN THAT, YOU SEEM TO HAVE DONE EVERYTHING RIGHT.
