    Default Atari 2600 Problem

    Howdy. I was going through my closet and I found an old school Atari 2600. I forgot that I had. Anyway, the power supply and such are fine but I am having an issue with it. When I turn it on, all it wants to do is flash on the tv screen. Any idea what the issue could be?

    I don't have Atari but I have heard that the HDTV's have a hard time playing the older console, like the ones that just use RF, try using a CRT tv and if your are using a CRT tv and thats the problem, sorry I don't not know what it may be.

    Switch to the analog tuner (NTSC), not digital (ATSC).
