I take it this isn't a good thing.




The paddles barely work at all (aside from this connection issue, there's something rattling around inside.)


I have ZERO technical skills, so repairing these myself is not an option.

Can they be salvaged at all? If not, can someone use them for parts?


Just trying to figure out my next step. Assuming I need new ones, where's the best place to buy them?

I had the herky jerky problem recently. A good cleaning did the trick.

I've heard the same thing.......but I went and bought used ones from Gameovervideogames.com instead - work perfect

I think that's normal.  Like, some of the pins aren't needed for the paddle.  My best guess is that you just need to take the pots apart and clean them up really well.  Do a google search, it's pretty easy if you take your time and are careful.
