static difference


Recommended Posts

I have a 2600 Jr and a 4 switch VCS, and I was wondering if there would be a reason why the 4 switch has less static on screen than the JR. Is it simply because of shielding? I wanted to know if there is any kind of fix besides a ferrite filter, as I already have one plugged in between my Atari and Coax tv tuner.

Probably shielding, different parts layout, higher quality parts. It's common for manufacturers to use the best parts on the first runs of something. And then as time goes on, to start cost-cutting and using cheaper parts when they can get away with it.


There's lengthy thread about jailbar interference. And while yours may not have the exact symptoms, the same concepts apply. http://atariage.com/forums/topic/255804-minimizing-jailbarvertical-lines-on-2600/page-11?do=findComment&comment=3648626
