Atari 2600 composite mod issue

Post by Superhampster » Wed Apr 25, 2012 10:18 pm

I did this mod:

And the picture rolls on my crt. On my lcd hdtv it works fine.

Any thoughts?

Nah its NTSC. I've had it since it was new and it works with RF. Seems to be a common issue. I've seen others have the same problem but no solution is given.

Anyone? I know others have the same problem. This guy for example: http://forums.benheck.com/viewtopic.php?f=57&t=37783" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;


So what is the problem? Is the signal too weak? Does it need amplifying? The solution can't just be to use a different tv.

Try adding 220 uF capacitor to signal line with negative side facing to TV.It worked for me
