Hi everyone. I have a ColecoVision that, while for the most part has a great video output, there is some weird image "distortion" on some games. With Frenzy there is extra color around the lazer blot when you fire your weapon. Same with Zaxxon. Any ideas what could be causing this? Thanks!

Try cleaning out the power switch, it's usually the number one problem with CVs and it can cause graphical glitching if it's dirty.

I actually replaced the power switch already.

It was the power adapter. I tested it with my own power adapter and the image was normal. Thanks again!
