dauber Posted April 15, 2017 Report Share Posted April 15, 2017 So I have an Atari 7800 with a very tight cartridge port, BUT: This is NOT the usual cartridge port tightness that can be cured by cutting or removing the plastic band around the cartridge port. This is not the usual "Activision/Imagic cartridges are a tight fit" situation. Atari 2600 cartridges are absolutely fine. They go in and out without a care. Just like on any Atari 2600. But Atari 7800 cartridges? Forget it: they're so tight that I actually popped the motherboard out of place just by removing a cartridge. I even tried completely removing the plastic band around the cartridge port so that all that was left was the bare cartridge port, completely exposed. Still nothing. It's got a death grip on the cartridge PCB and doesn't want to let it go. Anybody know of a way to fix this problem? I posted about this on AtariAge, and most I got was, "I heard there's a way to fix that." But nothing further...
