Atari 2600 problem please help

Hi and thankyou in advance! I bought an atari 2600 from someone who said the only thing I needed to play it was the rf cable adapter. I bought the correct one but when I turn on the atari the screen is just black. One of the games has a black screen but with a line running verticle on the left and the right side of the screen. My other game has one line.?? I opened the system up to see if there is any noticable damage but I do not know much about circuit boards and chips etc. I can follow directions though so if you could explain what is wrong or even how to fix the atari I would be very greatful. Thanks again, Jonathan. Oh I forgot. the atari has 2 plugs for cords in the back of it. The rf cable runs through a hole in the side of the atari and to the chip board. There is a black/white to color switch. There is a channel 2 to 3 switch too. The atari is all black, no wood grain. It is also very lightweight. It has four switches too one for reset, power, game select and color to b/w. The model number on a small gold sticker underneath the atari says cx2600a. I hope this helps, thankyou

Tried connecting direct to both an LCD and older set using the coaxial lead straight from the console.Cannot get anything at all.Do I need an rf modulator or no.


Quite the opposite - The Atari 2600 sends a modulated RF signal over the cable, it needs to go to the ANTENNA port of the TV, and you need an adapter. On eBay, look for
ATARI 2600 RF TV SHIELDED CABLE + ADAPTER
http://www.atariage.com/howto/connect.html is a really good guide.

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.

When i turn my atari 2600 on no games play?


The Atari 2600 was finicky even at the time (early 1980s). Just unplug it completely. Plug back in and power back on. Use the reset switch if need be. Good luck and have fun!

Atari 2600 junior problems


Press up on the power switch to reset the machine. Then try powering down. If that fails, accumulated dirt or general usage may be preventing the on/off slider from sliding fully to the off position. If you want to hurt your baby, take it apart - you will find the obstruction in the casing (could be as simple as a ball of lint). I wouldn't reccomend it however - the Atari 2600 was always touchy, and this is not as big of a deal as it might seem. Just unplug after every use.

ARTARI 2600 HOOK-UP INFO?


yeah its the right thing. Hook the RF Modulator to the cable connector on the back of your TV. (the one with the threads) and hook the cable from your Atari (its a AV cable) to the RF Modulator. set the little swithch on your Atari to chanel 3 or 4, then set your TV the the same channel and enjoy your Retro Gaming goodness (I Love My Atari 2600)

Atari 2600 fuzzy screen


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
