It's a nice rainy Fall Sunday afternoon. Your cable is out and you can watch the NY Jets take another serious beating so you decide you can enjoy a fine game of Breakout on your 2600.
You set up and ready to go just to find out your paddles are "jumpy" and have the "jitters" . You keep missing and you just scored a new high in low scores in the game. It drives you nuts, but RELAX !! There is an easy remedy to cure your Atari paddle controllers.
Nothing worse than shaking paddles but the steps ahead should be an easy resolve to the problem if it isn't that serious a problem (which it often isn't).
Here is a list of what you will need for cleaning & repairing them. I included Radio Shack Catalog Numbers for the items you have to obtain but you can use an equivalent :
Set up your work area so you are comfortable and put your safety glasses on and follow the easy steps below ! Click on one of the pictures to see a full view of the procedures !
There you go ! Now just plug in your paddles and try out one of your favorite Atari Paddle compatible games & try them out !
You should have "jitter-free" paddles and for a fraction of the cost of a new pair. Also you will know have to clean them in the future also !
Sometimes the paddle are in more serious repair like replacing the pots or "WYE" cables. In this case you will have to know basic soldering skills and will need replacement parts. These parts are available her at Orphanvideogames.com . To see the page of replacement parts for controllers and consoles click here !
I hope this helps you out . Future upcoming fix-its with be for Atari 2600 Joystick , Colecovision Standard & Super Action Controllers , making a Vectrex controller from a Sega Genesis Controller and more !
