Cleaning Inside Cartridge Connector

Cleaning Inside Cartridge Connector

Console: Atari 2600
Model: CX-2600
Switches: Six Switch
Made In Taiwan

Supplies: Cloth, 91% rubbing alcohol, craft foam sheet, and scissors (not pictured)

The previous photo shows what I use to dust the motherboard and cartridge connector. This photo shows how (and what I use) to clean the cartridge connector on the motherboard of the Atari 2600.

I soak 91% rubbing alcohol on the edge (your top) of the craft foam sheet, which you’ll have to cut down in order to fit it inside the cartridge connector.

I then place the craft foam sheet into the cartridge connector and go back and forth with a bit of pressure on the plated contacts.

If you’re afraid to take your Atari apart (like I have) you don’t have to in order to clean the cartridge connector. Just follow the same steps with your Atari intact.

Wait 5 minutes for the cartridge connector to dry and put your Atari 2600 back together.

NOTE: The cartridge connector is nailed/built onto the motherboard.

Console: Atari 2600
Model: CX-2600
Switches: Six Switch
Light Sixer
Made In Taiwan

Supplies: 71% alcohol pads, screwdriver, 91% rubbing alcohol (not pictured), Q-Tips (not pictured), and Duster (Endust)

This is what the switch board looks like with the foam ring dust covers off the switches.

I use compressed air (Endust) to remove any dust that’s on the switch board and motherboard.

I use 91% rubbing alcohol with q-tips to clean the inside of the switches. These were a little dirty, but they were the only things that were dirty on the switch board or motherboard.

I use 71% alcohol pads to clean the switch board itself (I let them dry a bit so they’re not so wet), which is safe, because there’s not anything on the board.

I again use the compressed air to get any dust or dirt that was left behind on the switch board or motherboard.

Note: Game cartridges are just for looks. They’ve already been cleaned (photos 16-18)

Cleaning Cartridge Connector

Cleaning Cartridge Connector

Console: Atari 2600
Model: CX-2600
Switches: Six Switch
Light Sixer
Made In Taiwan

Supplies: Cloth, miniature eyeglass screwdriver (or small screwdriver), Craft Foam Sheet, Duster (Endust), and patience

Before cleaning the cartridge connector (where the game cartridge inserts into the Atari 2600) I use compressed air (Endust) to make sure there’s no dust on the motherboard, or the cartridge connector.

I use the miniature eyeglass screwdriver to gently press down on the left (or right) hole of the cartridge connector. You don’t have to do this. This (sometimes) opens up the dust cover much wider.

NOTE: Make sure to be very careful (have patience) when taking off the 36+ year old ribbon cable from the switch board.

With the black foam ring dust covers back on, this is a close look at the switch board and motherboard of the Atari 2600.

You can see the color tuner (bottom left of the motherboard, round white circle) and also where the Radio Frequency (RF) cable goes into the Atari.

The end of an era. Our 12-year old desktop PC has finally bitten the dust. I have had the contents of its hard drives transferred onto a 2 Terabyte external drive and there is still room for the equivalent of 8 more disks. TImes have changed!

power supply [Day 3595]

One of the side benefits of running a LAN party for virtual Blizzcon is that since I move my gaming PC out to the dining room area for the event, when it comes time to move it back it’s a great opportunity to open up the case and do some dusting. This sort of maintenance helps keep things running in top shape!
