Thank You AtariAge for over 5 years of ColecoVision mods!
Here is a link to a thread in the ColecoVision Forum:
Here is a quick video I made with cell phone showing the RGB mod connected to the Framemeister and the HD Video Converter on a Vizio LCD TV.
RGB mod outputs awesome video signal and dual mono audio through a discreet 8 pin mini din jack on the back of the console. This mod was designed to be used with a RGB to HDMI scaler. The XRGB mini Framemeister and the HD Video Converter (sometimes referred to as Panlong) are my tested and recommend scalers. They provide awesome picture quality on LCD/LED TVs. This RGB mod should also work with any monitor that accepts a 15khz video signal, although I have not tested on any monitors and cannot make any guarantees.
I have also seen them on Ebay for around $43 with free shipping.
Your choice of one of the three cables listed below is included with the RGB mod service. One or both of the other cables can be purchased at the time of service. I won't sell cables separately at a later date.
1. male to male 8 pin mini din cable. This will plug directly into the back of the ColecoVision and directly into the 8 pin mini din jack on the Framemeister. $10 if you choose another cable and want to add this one.
2. male 8 pin mini din to male 21 pin connector wired EURO SCART. For use with the HD Video Converter. $15 if you choose another cable and want to add this one.
3. male 8 pin mini din to male 21 pin connector wired JP-21(Japanese 21) RGB. This will plug into the 8 pin mini to female JP-21 adapter that is included with the Framemeister. $15 if you choose another cable and want to add this one.
DIY Composite video Mod board (cord included) Picture below
DIY purchase price for mod board with a/v cord included $29 shipped anywhere in the USA. This board was designed and tested for NTSC. The ColecoVision outputs only mono sound and this mod outputs the mono to both left and right. (dual mono).
If you choose to buy a Composite modded system from another seller on Ebay, Craigslist ect...make sure they are using the LM318 amp chip and not the transistor mod. The transistor gets super hot and is prone to failure and there are brightness issues.
Repairs requiring chip replacement extra.
Console refurbished with no mods. $40 + return shipping.
Console refurbished and A/V mod board installed $69 + return shipping, a/v cable included.
Console refurbish and RGB mod installed $109 + return shipping. $20 off if you send a working console that I have previously serviced for upgrade. Your choice of 1 of 3 RGB cables listed above is included and the other cables are available for the listed prices.
Add composite video mod to RGB modded console for $29 (DIY price with free install) a/v cable included.
Controller refurbishing $20 each or 2 for $30 if combined with console refurbish and mod install. Ball knobs and cord straighteneing are free options with controller refurbishing.
Intro Skip BIOS $15 and Pause Button $35. Or both together for $40. BIOS and Pause only available additionally with console refurbish and RGB and/or A/V mod.
All my mods are shown in this Youtube video I made, with the exception of the Intro Skip BIOS and RGB.
Here is a link to my Intro Skip BIOS thread
and here is a link to my profile. I have links to all my mod threads on my profile.
If you have any questions please feel free to ask.
LEDs will be changing from 5mm blue to 3mm red in the very near future. And I will post a new video.

This mod eliminates the unreliable original power supply. 12V regulated power supply with barrel plug inserted into barrel jack on the back of the system. 5V and -5V are supplied by internal mods. 5V is supplied to original power plug so that Roller Controller can be used.
