Hi guys!


I recently dug out my dad's old Atari 8-bit collection (I inherited his stuff when he retired and moved to Florida), and was getting ready to relive some childhood classics when I noticed a couple of my games had crooked PCBs. One side of the board is sticking further out of the casing than the other side.


I figure it's something that could easily be fixed if I took them apart and repositioned the board, but they're both gray cartridges from the XE era, and I can't figure how the heck you're supposed to disassemble them.


Can anybody help me out?


I haven't tried testing them yet because I was worried not having them lined up properly with the cart connecter could break something.
