Question about Atari 2600 Console

1 Answer

Atari 2600 can not tell if it is turned on or not.

Hi,

I just purchased an Atari 2600 Darth Vader concole, at least that is what the listing on E-bay said. I can not get it to work. I have tested the electrical cable and that is working, but I can not tell if the concole is getting any power because there does not look to be a power light. I have hooked it up to the tv using where the cable would normally go in. Do I need something else? What am I doing wrong?

    I plugged in my Atari 2600A and I couldn't tell if it was on or off.  I have all original plugs, etc.  I took it apart and the pc board was very clean with no damage.  How can I test whether it works or not?

How do i connect my atari to a classic televison


I would check e-bay for the adapter , as most of the stores don't carry the screw in plug you are looking for.
Good luck. I also am having the same problem, check e-bay,, I found one going thru atari accessories on the chance somebay had one .. next best thing is see if you can find a genesis system as the plugs are of similiar model. Again Good luck and happy gaming

Just hooked an atari 2600 jr. up to a lcd television, everything works fine except for the select and reset buttons.


Had the same problem with an atari 2600 jr I just purchased. The reset and select buttons are imprinted on a plastic film and it has probably deteriorated.. I repaired the traces in mine with aluminum tape, but It would not be dificult for someone with a soldering iron to replace them with real buttons purchased from radio shack. (It's only 3 wires)

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!
