Cleaning Start/Select/Options/Reset on Atari 800


Recommended Posts

Just wondering how some of you guys handled refurbishing button functionality of the Atari 800's four right buttons. They appear to be enclosed in plastic casing with a spring attached to the plunger. I have to put a little extra oomph into mine to get them to respond. Unless there is a trick to opening them and cleaning the contacts, it seems like I am going to have to spray some contact cleaner just around the edges of the plunger and then hope it works its way down to the inside.


Hoping to get some feedback from you guys. Thanks!
