Question about Video Game Consoles & Games
If you are using the Radio Shack RF Modulator, your TV must be set to either Channel 3 or 4. The RF OUT of the modulator should be connected to the ANT/CABLE IN of the TV using a short coaxial cable with the proper terminators/connectors. Most Radio Shack RF Modulators are directly plug to the wall outlet.
The Atari 2600 should be connected with the use of RCA to RCA cable to the RF Modulator. Yellow is normally Video and the White/Red is Audio. Chances are that the RF Modulator is Stereo but the Atari is Mono, you can use either the red or white. If memory serves me right, the Atari has already a built-in RF Modulator.
You can try connecting the Atari straight to the ANT/CABLE IN of the TV bypassing the Radio Shack.

When powering the stuff there should be light indicated that there is a power on it. how ever if these not been observed, power adapter maybe busted. try to fix it or replace it. Please refer to the atari manual for the correct operation of your stuff.
