7800 controllers


Recommended Posts

Hey there Ben!


If the joypad leads are shot, all you need do is replace the lead. (This is what usually goes on the duff).


Any lead with 9-pin din male connector can be used if all required wires are present. You need all wires except #7. (Look into end of connector for tell tail sign of silver wipers to indicate which wires are present).


I like the Quickshot QS-130f joystick leads. Check compatible joysticks at S/H dealer or op shop. Peer down ends of leads to see!



I use modified 8-bit NES pads on our 2600 and 7800 consoles all the time. These are great IMHO.


The instructions to modify are on Atari-Age via:- 2600--->Archives--->FAQs--->NES to Atari 2600/7800 mod.


Or I have the file at



And, (Alex may be interested) I have done a picture file of the mod:-




Hope this helps you!
