Hi, all! It's been a long while since I've popped in here. But my kids are out of the house and I've been cleaning/reorganizing and setting up some of my classic systems. One of which is my beloved and hacked ColecoVision.
Years back I connected with a guy in Dallas to alter my CV and add the RCA video/audio out jacks. It worked for a while but I recall it stopped working. I just now set it up again to refresh my memory and investigate a little further.
When I power it on with a cartridge in (I tried 3 different ones) the screen says "turn game off before inserting cartridge or expansion module." However, if I insert the Atari expansion module then the system plays any Atari cart just fine. But it doesn't seem to recognize CV carts.
Is this a classic issue? Is there a simple fix? Or should I just eBay it and hope to find a fully working model?
Side note - I was sure I found this guy who hacked CVs here on this forum. But I cannot find my message exchange with him.
