Atari 800 / RCA Colortrak

Needs to be on channel 00 to get input.

My RCA cable for my Atari 800 goes white, black and yellow, going downwards. So the yellow video cable is not correct.

Keywords! RCA Colortrak

Oh, and you need the remote control to go to channel 00.

I just spent a half hour trying to fix the color on my Atari 800 because I had the cables in the wrong order and was getting black and white instead of color.

BLANK BUMP!!

True story:

First time I messed with an Atari 800 was on a poor redneck friends black and white TV.

Good luck!

Thanks - it is working correctly. I just had to plug the cables in correctly. This weekend I am going to post some pictures and hopefully a video of the Pac-Man homebrew game I just received for the Atari 800.
