    Odyssey 2 Help

    For those who have no clue what I'm talking about, please go Google the console before everyone jumps on the bandwagon with a barrage of questions that I don't really feel like answering, however, for those who have heard of this console and some of the issues that come with it, please help even you've never had this issue.

    A friend and I recently dragged from the basement, an old Magnavox Odyssey 2 console which can primarily only be hooked up on analog TVs that have the screws in the back of the TV, which I also have. We've hooked everything up, and for some reason, every time we start the console, we get the game screen, but the TV is how you say, scrolling vertically which makes the games basically unplayable due to the shakiness of the TV or the antenna connector.

    Does anyone know what this possibly could be, and if so, how can I fix this without having to buy a coaxial?

    Just sounds like broken connectors.

    Blow on the connectors, screw them in tighter, make sure they're connected properly at both ends.
    Then check if there's a Hrz setting on the console. My old Amiga had two settings, on of which would lead the the vertical scrolling. If there isn't a Hrz setting, then it might just be that your TV has too high/low (probably high given it's probably a semi-modern TV) a Hrz. The only way to fix it would be to get a TV with the correct Hrz.

    If these don't work, I'm out of ideas.
