Joystick repair: missing button spring.

Recommended Posts

Just got in a 2600 today with a joystick that was constantly firing. Noticed the button was sticking quite a bit, so I opened it up and noticed that the spring for the fire button was gone! Any ideas on where I could get a replacement? The stick works fine otherwise.

For a fast replacement, you can use the spring from a clicky writing pen. Otherwise you can order it from Best or ebay. I went the clicky pen route myself. I just had to cut it to the right length.

If the dome switch is good, it should stop firing. Might need a new one.

Controller is fixed now. Replaced the spring using the pen method mentioned above and repositioned the dome switch as it had slid out of place during the past 29 years. Thanks for all the help!
