Question about Atari 2600 Console

My 2600 works fine but after 5 mins or so there is a static noise which starts through the tv speakers and the longer I play the louder it gets until I can't hear the game any more. Why?

Try a different channel on your TV. If your using 3 then go to 4 or vice versa.

If that doesn't work then try a different RF Tuner cause those are known to go bad over time. You can also try those Coaxial adapters that allow you to play your Atari on your Cable-Ready TV using the cable connection on the back of the TV.

Finally if either of those don't solve the issue, try playing different games and see if the problem happens after playing 1 games or all games. If its all games then that means there is a problem with the mainboard inside of your Atari.

Loud buzzing when turn on, no input signal


put a song onto play using either tape, vinyl, cd or mp3.

once playing follow the wires from the speaker that doesn't work bending it until you hear it crack or become clear if it does either of those it is the wire between the head unit and the output.

if not you can try attaching the speakers to a different head unit if it doenst work it could be the driver (the cone doesn't have to go to blow a speaker)

It's likely a capacitor associated with the power supply having gone bad.
It's obviously beyond your expertise to repair it yourself.
Find a trustworthy repair shop and take it there.

I have a Sony avd k 800p it works fine until it get hot, and then it begins to make some strange sounds almost like static and then after a min or two more it begins to click and continues with the static...


It is most likely full of dust build up. Make sure the vents on the back, sides, top or bottom are not block by dirt. Any electronic device will malfunction when hot. These machines have a heat snyc. If you feel comfortable taking the screws out and blowing out the dust on the inside, it should work much better.

Insignia PC speakers - give a weird static feedback noise


I'm going to vote for the haunted option.

Sound like you have some noise on your power lines. This can be caused from many different things. Normaly it is a motor going bad or a compressor starting up. From the AC unit or refrigerator.

See if you can correspond the noise to anything else happening in the house. Fridge starting up, AC or heat cycling on...etc.

It may be that you just have speakers and a cordless phone going bad at the same time.

It might just be Casper the friendly ghost playing tricks... ha!
