2600RGB installed, now with graphics artifacts


Recommended Posts

Check out the videos I linked to...


After installing a 2600RGB in a working six switch this is what I see. The artifacts differ a bit with each game, but here is how Asteroids and Baseball look now:





I checked continuity through the 2600rgb and adapter board and everything seemed good.


Did I mess up the TIA, or something else? Anyone see these glitches before?

I checked everything on the 2600RGB and adapter board again and found an issue with the connection to pin 34.


I tried to re-solder that pin on the adapter board, both the pin header and socket with no luck.


Went ahead and jumpered those pins on the adapter board with a short wire. Now it works!


SO, those videos I uploaded are examples of what the 2600 video output looks like without pin 34 on the TIA connected!

I'm going to install my 2600 rgb tonight, interesting to see, thanks for posting.


Good Luck!


It was pretty straight forward since my TIA was already socketed. Although, I should have paid closer attention to the low profile vs tall pin headers. As I was putting together the adapter board, I first soldered the wrong pin header in place and had to desolder it. That's probably when I messed up pin 34!
