Atari 2600 Pause Mod Kit NTSC/PAL

Atari 2600 Pause Mod Kit NTSC/PAL


This is an Atari 2600 Pause Kit that you can install in your favorite Atari 2600 console! Once installed, you'll be able to pause any 2600 game, allowing you to resume your paused game right where you left it!

You can pause your game for hours or days as long as the consoles power is left on.


The Atari 2600 Pause Kit includes:

*Atari 2600 Pause Mod circuit board

*Necessary wires

*Heat shrink tubing

*Toggle switch

*Double-sided tape


Tools Needed:

Soldering Iron (and solder)

X-Acto Knife


Needle-nose Pliers

Phillips-head Screwdriver


While paused, the Atari 2600 will display a blank screen or some invalid television signal. When you are back to the game, you will get everything going perfectly again. There's not much that can be done about that, unfortunately. The Atari 2600 software was never intended to be paused in its nature!


You can install the 2600 Pause Kit in a variety of Atari 2600 consoles produced by Atari(Heavy Sixer, 4-switch, Vader, Junior, 2800)


Since this is a kit, I offer no returns nor am I responsible for any damages caused by an improper installation.
