On the output cord which is rca type, isn't there a part to convert to coaxial cable. Mine just has the rca plug. thanks


Yes, there is a converter that is required for the Atari to connect to the tv. These are not readily easy to find at a local store. check with your local video game store, Radio Shack or look online for one. Ebay is a great place to find one.
Below is a link to Ebay, to show you what you are going to need.

Tried connecting direct to both an LCD and older set using the coaxial lead straight from the console.Cannot get anything at all.Do I need an rf modulator or no.


Quite the opposite - The Atari 2600 sends a modulated RF signal over the cable, it needs to go to the ANTENNA port of the TV, and you need an adapter. On eBay, look for
ATARI 2600 RF TV SHIELDED CABLE + ADAPTER
http://www.atariage.com/howto/connect.html is a really good guide.

2600 atari


To connect your Atari to your TV, you'll need to get a "phono to f" adapter. These are available at RadioShack (part no. 278-255) for about $5.00 This adapter takes the phono plug from the Atari and changes it to a standard coaxial adapter. If your HD TV doesn't have an input for standard cable wires, you'll need to get yourself an RF modulator to switch the coax to RCA. If you have an old VCR with an unused cable input, that will work as well.
