 Subject: 2600 is losing colors; help fixing it?

Hi. I have an American NTSC 2600, with four switches. A few weeks ago it started going black and white. At first, it started b&w, then suddenly got color if you played for some time. Then it simply got b&w permanently. The color switch seems fine and spinning the color pot doesnít do anything.

Is this a problem with defective parts? I have little experience with soldering but am willing to try to fix it, if itís as simple as replacing a capacitor or something like that. Could anyone point me to where I can read more on this topic, or what I can do to fix the boy?
