Today I received a shipment of imagic carts for my 7800 and found that none of them would fit well enough to run.
I researched a bit on the forums to find a solution.
The given solution was i.e:
- Remove external housing
- Find "cart cup"
- clip corners with scissors
I did this to one of the corners and tested before proceeding any further to limit any damage.
It worked for most of the games, but one, cosmic ark. So, I clipped another corner of the "cup" and when I went to test it the console wouldn't turn on!!!
As far as I can tell (have not removed shield) there is no pieces lose.
I ordered a Atari jr. in the mean time so I could still play most of my library, but I would really like to be able to fix the console; It ran beautifully before I mutilated it (no sticky buttons, no game problems, etc.)
Any suggestions to what may be the problem?
Any similar experiences?
