SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Atari 2600 jr. console + paddle controls = DonĀ“t work !!!

If your controllers work on a friends, then it indicates your VCS is faulty. It's very rare though for a VCS to fail in that way, but the controller chip for the game controllers can go faulty at any time. It's more common to see a faulty one on the actual ATARI XE range of computers than on the consoles.
Have you tried both ports on the VCS maybe ? Only some games will use both though.

You mention it being 'paddles', but not joysticks or just controllers. Are you actually testing it with a game that uses the paddles type controller? like the breakout type game?

The controllers of all types for a VCS are the same, but if using a different type of controller, note that there are at least 3 different types available - but all look the same (all use a 9-pin plug).

The basic ones where introduced by ATARI in the 1970's, but later Commodore and Amstrad used their own different types of configuration which caused some confusion.

Some older joysticks had a slider switch underneath allowing you to select Amstrad, Commodore, or ATARI configuration. It's safe to try/use the wrong type for testing, so try different ones if possible.

Hope that helps a bit.

SOURCE: Atari 2600 Console Power Adapter

The Atari 2600 adapter has the following information on it:

Input: 120V AC 60Hz 12W

Output: 9V DC 500mA

Positive tip

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!

I bought a Atari FB 6 and am trying to hook it up to my Visio E70-C3. Nothing I do seems to work. Do I need some sort of adapter?

Your TV shows composite inputs and the Flashback 6 requires composite input capability. With that being said ensure your television is set to the right input channel and if this does not produce results there may an issue with the flashback unit itself. Before returning or further troubleshooting try the flashback on another television if you have one available. If none of these options work please let me know and will dig further for resolution.

Where do the white and yellow RCA cables go on my smart TV

The should go to the female colour coded RCA jacks on the TV if they are not present then your TV doesn't natively support them and you may need to buy a SCART to RCA adapter.

I just bought a new atari flashback 2. I have a VCR/DVD hooked up to my TV.. Do I need to hook the atari up to the back of the VCR/DVD or can I plug it directly into my TV.. The TV is new. Problem is, I...

You should be able to plug the Atari directly into the TV (If you have proper inputs available on your TV (you have not told us what make & model your TV is). BUT you can hook it up through your DVD/VCR if you want to. If you hook your Atari to your DVD/VCR you will have to power up the DVD/VCR whenever you want to play your games. The cool thing about running it through your DVD/VCR is that you can record toy game to prove to your friends what you have achieved.

How do you hook up the atari flashback to the tv?

To hook up the Atari Flashback to the TV, it requires you hooking up the RCA Plugs. The Video cable hooks up to the video input of your TV and the audio plugs hook up to the Left and right of the Audio inputs of the TV.

Just make sure you remember that if you have multiple inputs on your TV that you know what input you have the flashback hooked up to and change the TV to that input.
