Thank you Bryan and John for your responses. I got the part. It converted the wire from the atari and to coaxial. It was a box. It was similar to a nintendo rf adapter except it has a switch. It still didnt work so I would have to troubleshoot it. Are there any common problem on the one with the plastic (not wood) shell to look out for?

Yes Brian is right. Very counter intuitive. It is putting out an antenna signal on an RCA jack. Need RCA to "cable" adapter. No change in inductance or whatever. I believe I got one at Radio Shack.

1. No, you can not use a yellow composite video to play this system. You must get an adapter that goes from your Atari (what looks like an RCA but is not) to your coax hook up on your TV. You coax is just your standard cable hook up. This is because both audio and video come through that come so it wont work hooked up to your RCA inputs.
2. $40-$70

does anyone know if you can use a yellow composite video on this system or what else do you use for video? I am trying to fix one as a school project.

I recently picked up an Atari Video Pinball (beige version), and it''s an interesting piece of history$ basically, a bridge between the dedicated Pong-type consoles which had come before, and the cartridge-based systems which were soon to come. An added note: the Video Pinball console actually predates not just the Atari 2600 cartridge of the same name, but also the arcade game, which followed in 1978. Of course, the arcade version is far better graphically, but the console version is still fun.

Hi! I purchased an Atari Video Pinball Model C-380 off of eBay to add to my Atari collection and need a power adapter for it. It still works great, even with the six C cell batteries!
