Hello there, yes you need a simple adapter here and then can just use it with a regular coax (cable tv) cable, this video demonstrates it clearly for you:

The game cartridges are probably dirty, and as such the system has problems reading them. Take a look at this page on how to clean the cartridges and hopefully they will work.

Lights don't work


Don't know if I can solve it, but it is a Home Depot private lable. Try googling it and see if you can get some info. I suspect that you either hooked it up wrong, or it has damaged contacts.

No sound


I SPECIALIZE IN ATARI AND CAN NOT FIGURE WHAT COULD BE WRONG. I WOULD ONLY GUESS IT TO BE THE T.V OR ON THE WRONG CHANNEL. THERE IS A CHANNEL SWITCH ON THE BACK OF THE ATARI DECK.
IT COULD BE SOMETHING ELECTRONIC INSIDE THE DECK, AND I AM NO ELECTRICIAN. MY BEST GUESS WOULD BE TO FIND ANOTHER DECK. THE A/C ON 9 VOLT SHOULD WORK. THE FACT THAT YOU GET A PICTURE IS WHAT CONCERNS ME. AUDIO/VIDEO ARE ON THE SAME WIRE. IT MUST BE INTERNAL. IF YOU HAVE ANY OTHER SYSTEM TO TEST WITH THOSE ADAPTERS, WOULD PROVE THEY ARE GOOD.
