Atari 2600 Restore
I had brought a dead Atari 2600 a few years ago. Never found time to fix it until early 2017 i decided to look at it. To my supprise the Atari had a very simple fault with the four switches having bad contacts. How i had come to this conclusion was tracing the voltage going into the switch and not comming out. I did resistance check on all the switches and found all of them to be faulty.
So i un soldered them off the board and opened them up to find the switch contacts lost their spring in them after all these years. I re tension the contacts so they were pushing again. While i had it in pieces i decided to give it a bath.
Worked great except for the picture is no good on the new tvs. Was going to hook it up to a vcr but decided to do the AV mod instead.
