Atari Paddle repair/cleaning

Dienstag, Dezember 15th, 2009

One of my favorite console is the ATARI 2600 and the game Warlords. It needs paddles but after 20years the paddles jitter.

It is not new and not hard to do, but after cleaning you will have a lot of fun with games like Kaboom, Super Breakout, Warlords…

If you want to use the paddles with a windows PC with retroadapter. The paddle adapter will be available in 1-2 weeks.

If you can’t do it yourself, we can help

You have to open it and the poti inside . After cleaning with isopropyl alcohol and using contact oil, the paddles will run like at the first day :-)
