Introduzione

These cartridges often will freeze due to a poor connection to the mainboard. Opening it and removing excess dust will improve the connection, reducing the amount of freezing.

    • Flip the cartridge over.

    • Unscrew the single screw on the back.

    • Carefully pry apart the casing. There are six (6) tabs that need to be released, three (3) each side. If you're not careful they will break. (experience has taught me)

    • Set aside any case parts after dissassembly.

    • Place the chip in the case.

I’m curious to see the Atari 2600 cartridge inside but I can’t get my hands on one.
