Classic gaming is back! My Atari 2600
Thanks for a few sites such as AtariAge.com and Atari-Garage.com, I was able to identify it as a possible power issue. So after testing the one that came with it with a multimeter, I identified that the AC adapter was bad. I bought a new adapter and walla!, the ol' 2600 woodie fired up!
Now all I have to do is start scoring some of the classics such as Pitfall, Pac-Man, Ms. Pac-man, Joust, Dig Dug, Barnstormer and It will be all good.
Maybe even some day I'll sent it in somehere and get it modified with s-video and component audio/vidio out!!
Man I feel like its 1983.
