Atari 5200 Controller Repair Videos


Recommended Posts

Well, while I don't have enough for a full controller build, I did use some of the older 3 contact domes like those found on CX-40 controllers to replace some missing buttons for my test 5200 controller in the lab and while it took some fiddling to get them to line up and work, they do work and seem to work well.

Ideally it would be nice if some slightly smaller domes could be made with the 4 contract points even smaller than the ones that C5 sells to make them easier to install and be usable.

Not sure how well they would work on the graphite coated mylars though as I would suspect the metal dome to eventually wear aware the conductive graphite coating.
