Hi everyone. I tried asking this question in the other thread, however my issue has some different symptoms. I bought a Atari 7800 from the flea market, got an original power supply with it.. happy as a clam. I have a 7800 controller as well, the odd one. Issue: I plug in the controller to controller port 1, and nothing happens, I plug into controller port 2 and I have full control over player 2, but still nothing on port 1. I plugged in a sega genesis controller as I read it works with the 7800. It does the same thing, does not work on port 1, does on port 2. So I decided to try and open it up and look at the soldering points. I noticed the controller port itself moved ever so slightly when i pressed on it. Not much, but that was enough for me to think I should take a go at re soldering the pins. So i did, I suck at it, but i feel that the redo's were done with proper contact,, they are a little goopy, but they look like they should work. so I plugged everything back up, and still the same issue persists.. I'm happy that this place exists, and I am hoping that if many of you are good enough to successfully mod your 7800 to have composite video/S-video as i've been reading, that perhaps you can work with me on this to see if I can resolve it, thanks. side note, maybe I can take some pictures of my poor soldering job... but you guys know what the board already looks like I suppose.
