I tried a couple units and it seems even a slight bump will freeze a game whether its 2600 or 7800 carts
My 2600s dont do that. You could wiggle them to death and they'd be fine. Are 7800 card slots just sensitive? They play fine as long as I dont bump the unit

The cartridge port might need cleaning.  I had the same problem with my 5200 consoles, until I gave the pins in the cartridge port a good scrub.

I sprayed some deoxit in my main unit and it seems to be better now.

Definitely dirty contacts. Deoxit for the win!
