.1uF, 100V Film Capacitor.

A replacement for the "green chicklet" capacitor in Atari 2600 (CX2600A) consoles exhibiting chronic RF interference (snowy screen), parts C241 and/or C242

From the Atari Service Bulletin:

PROBLEM
-- RF Interference that does not clear up using normal adjustment methods.
-- A series of lines and bright grid distortions on the screen accompanied by a loud hum on the audio carrier even when the audio and video are properly adjusted.

CAUSE
The above problems may temporarily disappear when the unit is turned off for a few minutes and then turned on again.
These 2600A problems have been diagnosed by Atari as being caused by a leaking or defective C241 (.1 microfarad) and/or C242 (.1 microfarad) located between the power jack and voltage regulator.
