Conductive Grease in Atari 3rd Party Joysticks?


Recommended Posts

I would imagine that was a dielectric grease applied by a previous owner


clean it all off especially for leaf switch contacts


dielectric grease is actually an insulator ... it doesn't "make a good electrical contact" but in the instance of the tines in a paddle controller ... it will "keep the contacts clean from dirt & debris"

I found that goop in one of my Slik Stiks. The other one didn't have anything. Any suggestions for keeping these joysticks going for longer time periods?? Cleaned them both up a few months ago, and now one doesn't go right reliably, and the fire button on the other one is hit and miss. Both problems are pretty frustrating when playing Space Invaders!
