I recently picked up a pretty dusty Sears 2600 from a thrift store, and I've had some issues using Synthcart with it. When turned on in a postion with beatbox active, the cart starts with the beatbox started and the right controller is otherwise non-responsive. With the beatbox not active, the right controller does nothing. The left controller seems to work fully.
In the options menu, only the top row of buttons work on the right controller, and the left controller works except that the Arp pattern defaults back to mix if the button for another option isn't being held.
I'm wondering where the fault for this malfunction lies. Unfortunately, my troubleshooting capabilities are pretty slim; I only have this console and a copy of Crystal Castles that seems to work fine with the joystick controller. Do these issues sound like a problem with the console or the cart? I've already had to fix a switch, so it isn't an entirely perfect system.
My copy of Crystal Castles also seems to fit into the slot more snugly and with a noticeable click, whereas Synthcart mostly just rests in the slot without any kind of click.
Does anybody have any experience troubleshooting these kinds of problems? Any help would be really really appreciated, thanks!
EDIT: Have tried multiple controllers, and the pins on the jack looks fine at a glance
