I just purchased a Roller-controller and seven games for my Colecovison.  I went home, and guess what, the system died.  No power, just the static noise.  This was Colecovision number 3, which I had for about 5 years.  I've always had trouble with it, but before most games would work, and I constantly had to change the contacts.  Does anyone in the Seattle area fix these.  Right now I have three broken Colecovisions.  I would like one working model.  Any suggestions?

If you can't find anyone local, I would highly recommend sending your dead CV system to Yurkie to have properly fixed and at the very least modded with his Composite A/V Board. Send him a PM for links to all the services he provides.

I agree with NIAD, I'm in eastern Wa but I know nothing of repairs and I highly recommend Yurkie, in fact I had to send one of mine to him over a non working controller port. And his mods are awesome!!

If you don't hear back, I've also become quite proficient at repairing colecovisions.  Of course, I'm not local so shipping would be a pain, though I would gladly fix for free if you send me all 3 and I keep 2 of them :-D   I can also do composite mods, PM me if you're interested.

Thanks everyone, Yurkie got in touch with me and I sent him all three.  Hopefully he'll work his magic.  Thanks for the offer Jeremy.  How come people only know how to fix Colecovisions in Ohio?
