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.
