You could use an universal adaptor for it.. just make sure it doesnt burn your console by letting it pass too much electricity

I just got Atari 2600 trying to get it to work on my plasma don't know how to hook it up?


Hello Jamie,
I understand how annoying it is to connect an older game console, such as the Atari 2600, to newer TV's. Do not fret, all you need is an adaptor to connect between the Atari's RF cable, and the coax jack on your TV.
For example (image curtesy of google search):

You can usually find these at store that specialize in electronic parts, such as Radio Shack here in the United States. The image above is actually from Amazon's site so if it doesn't show properly you can go to: http://www.amazon.com/Intellivision-Colecovision-Adapter-VINTAGE-WITHOUT/dp/B0028MXOF6

My son just got a atari 2600 console but it will not power up swap the 9 volt and still not power up


Well put it this way yes it a power system failure to fix this problem you basiclly will have to install a new mother board for the console from another atari 2600 console like from ebay. If you find a crappy atari 2600 console with a working motherboard you might just be able to switch it and I fix NES SNES N64 sega gamecube and atari 2600 consoles too. This has a high probility of not working if you don't know what to do or on how to fix it. 8 out of 10 it might not work after this.

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.

Bought an atari 2600 and an adaptor for my tv still no picture. also it turned my tv to blk and white. where should i start?


If you are using a digital tv you need the lastest up dated rf switch for atari2600
and plug it into a VCR or A DVD player and it will work that way but if its on a CRT tv style just use the rf switch then no special set ups on CRT style tvs.

Does not power on anymore


Well It might be the ac adapter thats doing this so you could buy a new adapter to see if it works again usually Nintendo sega and atari consoles will work with a new ac adapter then.

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!
