Customer Question
I have the Atari...

I have the Atari 8 gold and when I hook it up the red power light blinks and therefor I can’t open the HDMI source

Technician's Assistant: What Atari system do you have?

Atari flashback 8 gold deluxe

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your Atari game system? What have you tried so far?

I just opened it today, I tried all different outlets around the house but no go

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Game Expert to know before I connect you?

The HDMI does not seem to be a problem, in fact when the red light blinks on I can see it blink through my tv. It just seems to be the power/ac
