Question about Atari 2600 Console
How have you hooked it up? Even though the 2600 uses an RCA connector, it is not baseband video and CANNOT connect to the yellow video port of the TV. The connector is designed to provide an RF signal to a TV/GAME box, and the output of that is a 300 ohm (2-wire) connection. You need a 300ohm to 75 ohm adapter, since most modern TVs use the 75 ohm style connection.
Make sure you check for Channel 2 or 3, and if you have a digital TV that auto-programs, you may need to add channels 2 and 3 manually to tune to them.
