Re: Atari 2600 not working!! help.

Moved to Help since it's technically not on Retro Uprising and its offsite.

Anyway, unfortunately I don't know too much about the Atari. Where did you buy it? Off Ebay? Did you try googling the problem? Perhaps this will help?

Define static. How are you connecting the Atari to the TV? Have you cleaned the cartridge's pins with alcohol?
