Question about Atari 2600 Console
Well I think that you need the lastest updated rf switch for an atari 2600 console and plug it into either a VCR or a DVD player then for it to work on this tv type.
4 STARS if this Solution is helpful.

Hello, Are you using a newer flat panel or and older TV? IF you are using a newer TV the picture will never look very good. IF not, did you try working with the RF adapter? Check all connections. If all else fails try to get another RF adapter to see if that helps. I remember this being a bit problematic even when these were new. Wish I had a definite answer for you! Good Luck - Dr. Know

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.

The Atari 2600 adapter has the following information on it:
Input: 120V AC 60Hz 12W
Output: 9V DC 500mA
Make sure you test the power supply before you use it. I have 2 original atari power supplies, and they are both putting out about 15V DC, which may be why my atari's aren't working anymore!

Not quite sure what your problem is based on your description. You should have a cable coming out of the console...a long, black cable with an RCA cable on the end. This plugs into the switchbox, which then connects to the TV (probably through a 300 ohm to 75 ohm adapter). Or you could also use a RCA female to F male adapter...that's the cleaner solution.
Now, if you don't have the cable coming out of the back left side of the console, someone has cut or removed it. You can add it back yourself though. Carefully open the console with a screwdriver, and on the circuit board on the inside you should see an RCA jack. Get an RCA cable and plug it into here and run it outside the console through the hole that the original cable would have ran through. Then attach as described before.

The signal is output at 56MHz or 60MHz depending on the channel you use. Normal tv is around 350MHz to 700MHz so you need to got to the bottom range to tune. Also check that the contacts of the game catridge are not black looking, if so clean with some alchol to remove the soot build up, this will make sure the screen is outputted in proper format.
