How to repaid 1977 paddles?


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know how to repair the original 1977 paddles? I remember them being different inside than the ones made after. The set I have the left to right does not work on either but both buttons work. Thanks, Mike

I use this guide http://atariage.com/forums/topic/184296-slowcoders-guide-to-cleaning-up-your-2600/?p=2316794


you probably have a carbon contact in there so DO NOT use the grease , you can lightly file the carbon contact on the shaft if it's pitted


last one I took apart like that however the contact fell off so it'd be a pot replacement
