Board Cleaning Supplies

Board Cleaning Supplies

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)

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.
