Atari 2600's damaging TV's back in the day....
12/18/16 08:50 PM


Wasn't sure where to post this...


I remember when I got a 2600 my parents would never allow me to connect it to the living room TV. They heard it would eventually damage the screen, causing permanent white horizontal lines to appear. Was that true and what caused it? I do remember seeing a few TVs back then that exhibited those lines and they did have 2600s connected. Supposedly, the problem was fixed in later revisions.
