Why does player 1 pull to the left?
My 2600 still works except for one problem - player 1 pulls to the left. On some games, the problem is avoided by just playing player 2, but single player games are more tricky. Games like Defender are ok because you can just go to the left (the best you can do is stop if you try to go right). Games like Kangaroo are impossible since both directions are required.
It's not the controller (I've tried several that work fine for player 2, but not player 1), and the wheel controllers (for Circus Atari and Kaboom, etc.) work just fine.
Nothing has obviously had its smoke released on the inside, but I'm also not an electrical engineer, so I have no idea what could be the culprit for such an issue.
Ideas? Or do I just need to accept that my 30-yr-old game console might be past its prime?
Is this a good question?
