Why is "Все плохо а я знаю, что делать." incorrect? This sentence seems to have a contrast which would suggest the use of 'a' rather than 'но' as given in the correction. Thank you.

It is not a contrast. It is more like having an ability to change something. For example, "Everything is bad but Tom is happy" has a contrast, and can be translated with "а", but not the sentence in the task.

"все плохо, зато знаю что делать"?

This is an excellent political slogan.
