Question about Atari 2600 Console
My atari 2600 doesnt seem to work on any of my tvs. There is a signal but no picture.
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.

I just got a Atari 2600 as well and can't get it to produce a picture. The transducer and the chips are getting warm when I turn it on, so I know it is getting power. I have tried to clean everything with rubbing alcohol but nothing has worked so far. I have also tried about 7 different games all do nothing.
Is there some part or component that commonly goes on these systems? I have a friend who also bought a 2600 and he is having the same problem.
