    All Atari Joysticks had problems like this eventually. You need to buy a pad kit or a replacement contact kit. I've seen them on eBay frequently.

    That or a replacement joystick.

    Good luck!

    Trust me, the joysticks are alot less valueble than the kits.

    Just get a $5 joystick off eBay...

    Genesis Controllers work too

    But, what about when they go bad? 100 switchhes for under $10.00 don't sound bad to me:

    The repair is a really simple one to do.
