I have 2 non working units and extra AC and controllers... does refurbishment include repair? And, would you give any credit on the spare unit?

Ummm, $10 credit on a Colecovision working AC adapter is ripping people. I bought mine recently from 4jays and paid $30, including shipping. Plus, factor in that these are not readily available in most flea markets and thrifts so most people are most likely going to have to order off the net to replace theirs. Offer $20 for AC adapters and you might get more takers.

He is making an offer, nobody is forced to accept it, don't crap on Yurkie's thread. If you do not think it is a good deal than don't deal with him.

The only sold Colecovision power supply I see on eBay went for $9 with only one bid and a bunch of others didn't sell at all.

Offering to pay more than he could possibly turn around and eBay them for seems quite fair to me.

I sent my ColecoVision console and controllers to Yurkie for a complete refurbish, including the A/V modification, pause switch, power switch rebuild, ball knob/straightened cord for both controllers and general cleaning of all critical contacts. In addition to being prompt, courteous and answering all my questions beforehand, he was very quick in performing all services and return shipped to me within a few days! Upon receipt I was very pleased with the results. Between the crystal clear video, better and more comfortable controls and the ability to pause every single game I feel as though I just bought a brand new console. If you are considering refurbishing your ColecoVision, I highly recommend Yurkie. He's professional and serious about his work and is a great asset to the AtariAge and classic gaming community at large. Thanks again!

Do you offer an S-video mod? What would the price difference be?

I don't offer S-Video. I have repaired 3 consoles with S-Video and compared them to composite and there is very little difference.

No, return shipping is not included. Shipping via Parcel Post however saves a lot over Priority for a ColecoVision System.

OK, thanks...a ColecoVision mod is starting to sound better and better, although I need to pay for two new camera lenses I just bought first.
