Atari 2600 Consoles – 4 Switch & 6 Switch

This video walks through the various iterations of Atari 2600 consoles in my collection. I happen to have a number of different types and I explain some of the differences in this video. See my other YouTube video for a walkthrough on my Atari 2600 games collection.

    Youve most likely put all this back in storage, but any chance for some gameplay videos? perhaps showing off various joysticks/rarities etc?

    I have a question about the power jack issue. Does this problem apply to 4 switch models as well, or just the 6 switch model? I ask this because I bought a 4 switch woody and I want to take great care of it without damaging it.

    Hello. Mi atari 6-switch atari 2600 has no channel 2-3 port like you showed in the video, it has no written text at the back, since its made out of plastic. I don’t even know if the switchbox works. Please send help.

    Who was Atari Super Service? I don’t think the games came with that sticker. But today I bought a 4-switch game manufactured on Sept.18, 1981. The date was pencil written on a piece of paper scotch taped to the motherboard. The board itself was printed C1980Atari. Mine has that red sticker on it too. Could it possibly be stuck on in factory?

    These consoles are indestructible. The game I found was caked in mud. It had obviously been left outdoors because of all the mud on and in it, and it had dead weed vines inside of it when I opened it up. The board is all oxidized and chalky white and muddy. I sprayed the PCB with dielectric cleaner and sprayed some wd40 in all the switches. It works like new. 30 bucks including all four controllers and a power pack. The joysticks both have broken inner rings, but the paddles work great, surprisingly, no jitter at all.

    I have a Sunnyville, CA six-switch woody. How original is mine?

    I don’t think he has atari in that box he might say he got one but I think he just bought the Box if you going to make a video you could have at least shown us what in box

    Thanks for your comment. I will look to create some videos in the future with games and other related hardware. There is so much about the Atari 2600 that can be discussed.

    The only two consoles you are missing is the Sears verson and a sunny vale heavy sixer

    You might want to exorcise that box. Grandma might want to come back to claim her box.
