Question about Atari 2600 Console
My Atari works, but some elements of the games are invisible (1/2 of the ghosts in PacMan, the projectiles in Space Invaders, 1/3 of the missiles in missile command, and all of the asteroids in Asteroids). All the invisible things still interact with the game (i.e. kill me), but nothing I do makes them show up on screen. Any ideas?
These days we need to clean everything very good and get a brillo pad to make sure everything is getting a good conection

It might be a software issue, since the machine is so old. I recommend just blowing in the cartridge and praying it works like we used to do when we were kids! ;)
That or download the ROMs somewhere on the internet and play them on a PC. There's not much restoration you can do to a bad cartridge.
