Artifacts after AV-modding my 2600


Recommended Posts

Yesterday I modded my Atari 2600 to add Composite video.

My Atari is a woody 4-switch PAL-version.


I used this mod: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Atari-2600-Composite-AV-Video-DIY-Upgrade-KIT-Board-Preassembled-/381321972595

and these instructions: http://www.vintagegamingandmore.com/guides/mods/


Installation went smooth as expected and after it was done, I popped in Pole Position and it looked great!


But a few games, for example Ms. Pacman, show short horizontal lines on the left hand side of the screen. I've made a photo of how it looks: http://1drv.ms/1l8SZLx


Can anyone tell me why this is occurring?

I am not new to modding, perhaps that's it. :)


I did a mod to a pong console not too long ago, and that was very similar to this mod:
