Another Atari

Since we have an Atari 2600 discussion on the board.... Smile

I have an Atari 7800 that I would like to get working. The unit powers up, but regardless of what cartridge is inserted I get nothing but colored vertical bands on the TV. On a rare occasion the game will start. The last time I tried to get it working I used a cartridge cleaning kit on the cartridge and the slot connector.

Oh how nice it would be to be able to play Food Fight, Robotron: 2084 and Xevious again without an emulator!

Open it up and check for brok

Open it up and check for broken solder joints, most especially in the power supply and where the cartridge plugs in.
