    • At this point the game board and pins are freely accessible.

    • Here you can fully clean the pin set and inspect for damage to the circuit board.

    • Cleaning the pins is the easiest part; use a cotton swab and either a rich mixture isopropyl alcohol or Brasso. Other people swear by an eraser(the white kind), but it can lead to damage if you're not careful. Personally, Brasso works the best.

    • NOTE: The top edges of the board are made asymmetrically so it can only go into the casing one way. Near the Blue Circles

    • The battery is soldered in. You will have to break it out and re-solder the new battery in.


To reassemble the cartridge, follow these instructions in reverse order.
