To celebrate the launch of video game repair guides, do-it-yourself repair website iFixit is tearing down old video game consoles all week long. Today they give us a peek at what’s inside the classic Atari 2600.
By today’s standards, the Atari 2600 is downright primitive. There’s no fan and no CD-ROM drive to get gummed up or out-of-sync. Just a board, a cord, black plastic and faux-wood panelling.
Ah yes, those were the days.
iFixit expanded this week with the addition of more than 200 video game console and accessory repair guides to its self-repair library. If your console is broken and you’re out of warranty, check them out before paying someone else.
