Atari Middle Aged Riot - Atari 2600 Repair (with video)

By Gavin Davies

I have always wanted an Atari 2600. Not the original VCS with the wooden cheeks, but the sleek black plastic wedge. It was something about how they looked… I was rummagin’ on eBay and found one in spares+repairs.

Unfortunately, I know very little about analog TV signals, so there was much perplexity, a teardown, some cabling, razor blades, crocodile clips, IPA alcohol ( 𝄆𝄞 don’t try to drink it or you’ll die 𝄇), meter beeps and finally… Well… Fun and games?
