2600 Static Modification Zener Diode

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Moving onto my next change (previous issue here: http://atariage.com/forums/topic/285092-light-sixer-left-joystick-issue/)- the Zener Diode protection.

 

Looking through the Service Guide Atari offered a direct replacement part CA018263 replacing C236 and C237. Now looking through the forums it is suggested to solder directly onto Pin 6 of the joystick and the opposite side to the nearest ground plane. This is obviously using potentially newer components (as noted at Console 5):

Can someone please help confirm the actual parts no's and required configuration to make sure I get this one right?

 

Thanks!
