  1. Thanks AtariLeaf and Shawn. This actually was a "broken" console I picked up to salvage a TIA chip from, but it seemed like a waste to gut it rather than just fix the one silly port, since it's otherwise in excellent condition. If I find a deader one, I'll definitely salvage these parts off it. I can't seem to edit my post, so just adding some extra keywords for anyone Googling: The original Atari part number was FK100307 / CO19062, and the Digikey part I found is a replacement for that. Cheers.
  2. Hi all, I recently picked up an Atari 2600 (Darth Vader) with a broken controller port. One of the pins coming out the back of the port had snapped, and although you couldn't see it visually, a quick continuity check with a multimeter confirmed it. The only source for this part I could find mentioned on these forums was Best Electronics, but I've found another source that I wanted to share. The part I discovered is 5745001-3 by TE Connectivity, which can be purchased on Digikey and Mouser. I wasn't quite sure before I ordered it, but I soldered it in and it's a perfect fit. Digikey says the part is active, but the unit price is fairly high ($16 CAD, compared to around $2 for any common D-Sub connector), so I'm not sure if they're still being manufactured or what the deal is. Ordering from Digikey made way more sense for me in Canada than ordering from Best Electronics because the shipping is super cheap, overnight, and never has an issue with customs. Anyways, just throwing this out there in case someone else is looking for a replacement part! (Soldered in!)
