Inleiding

One of the most common issues with the Atari 5200 is faulty controller wiring- a controller's buttons will become unresponsive, hard to press, or even stuck in place. This guide will cover replacing the entire circuit board for the buttons, reseating each button to ensure proper contact and operation of each button.

Turn the controller over, exposing the three screws on the back. Use a 6mm screwdriver to remove these screws. Carefully slide and pull the two parts of the controller shell apart, exposing the innards. Try not to move the joystick when reassembling. This will almost assuredly break your alignment. The less the joystick is moved, the easier it will be to realign the joystick to the pots.
